And so it begins again

Well, just to knock the socks off everyone I have decided to emerge from my cocoon and start posting again.
Its been a while since I've posted....almost twelve months in fact, but, it's never too late as the dog said to the horse one day.
Life has continued on. I am another year older almost and although I have probably gained a few kilos and lost the length in my hair, not much has changed for the real me apart from the fact that said hair is quite grey now.
The dogs have grown and probably have no recollection of their former lives before we came onto their scene.
They are a part of our family now as much as we are and I am so thankful we have them both.
Each has their very own distinct personality and just love affection in their own way.
Stuart even cries if he thinks Noni is getting more love than he is....boys! You can't win with them. You can't go out into the back yard for any reason without throwing a ball to Noni so she can return it. If you're not quick off the mark in throwing it for her to fetch she'll actually pick it up and throw it at you as a reminder. Stuart just asserts his authority as the male pack leader with her from time to time but he is actually quite easy going and very loveable as a rule, when he's not eating grass that is.
I would love to post some current dog photos but I'm using a computer that is not my own and besides, the home computer is decidedly malfunctioning at present and I am unable to even get into it...let alone blog, so this'll have to do sans photos until I get it fixed.
My daughter Merryn and I are off to Thailand in a few short weeks. I checked the weather out a few minutes ago and at this time of the morning (4ish) its already in the mid 20's. Such a contrast to the current cold old Melbourne where its icy winds and freezing cold and rain and chill and more wind and grey clouds than you can shake a stick at.
The two weeks prior to that I am not working also so my plan is to take Mum on the ferry over to the other side of the bay for a couple of reminiscing days, as she and Dad used to live in Rosebud once upon a time. We will catch up with an old friend of mine and also drop in on my aunt (Mum's sister) which is something we don't get to do very often now as Mum hasn't been very well for a while. She's 88 now and soldiering on but these winter days take their toll and have left her in pain most of the time because of arthritis and aging.
Ahhh the things we have to look forward to as we get older.


  1. glad to hear you're up and about! arthritis is a terrible taskmaster, hope your mom is able to get around
    I'll be back, but probably won't comment again because I hate trying to figure out the verification words.

  2. Well well, welcome back my friend, I'm glad you're putting pen to paper to speak.. :o) Looking forward to our day out again next week and hopefully a bit of time together while I'm in Geelong and before you and the fairy god daughter swan off to Thailand..
