A tribute to the rambunctious little lamb that wormed her way into our garden and into my heart. … More Remembering Lamby
I have a confession to make. I’m not a very good mum. In fact I’m neglectful, thoughtless and sometimes I wonder how I could possibly deserve the awesomeness in my life. How else can I explain leaving Harry in the car overnight, for thirteen hours?
Don’t rub me up the wrong way. I can be feisty and a bit temperamental, but stroke me just right and I’ll purr in your hands. I’m not overly fussed about pedicures and manicures but I do like the odd pamper. Oh yes, I’m a sucker for a massage. Must be a female thing. Give … More Female and Fabulous
Who would have thought raising such a little lamb would have such a big impact. She came into our life at barely two weeks of age, after being abandoned by her mother. I blogged about her here when she arrived.
Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Lamby has eaten (almost) everything. She’s sucked the sage, devoured the mint, deflowered the lemon tree and stripped my yard barren. Not only has she devoured the herbs (minus the rosemary) she’s mowed better than any grass cuter ever could and become a master … More A wish to Grow and Bloom
A world without animals would be exceptionally dull. At least in my books. I grew up with cats. We adopted many strays that ventured into our back yard. Well at least I did. I’ll never forget the day my dad sat in the kitchen and told me there was no way the cat was staying. Behind … More My world of Animals
Life is never dull in our world with a menagerie of animals, from large to small, keeping us busy. Meet the ones in my life, with the odd human included for good measure. Harry the hound, my faithful walking companion. Adopted from a shelter at 12 months old when he was a quivering … More Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Pets
Lately we’ve had heat and rain, cool days and warmer ones, which equate to the grass in my backyard growing at an extraordinary rapid rate. Today, finally, I had a chance to get out there and mow it. But it’s not just the grass that is growing at a crazy rate. My oldest kid will be … More Pigs and Long grass: Mundane Monday
After our beloved Blue passed away we waited almost a year before getting another dog. In that time the kids were introduced to the world of rabbits. But they weren’t the same. Eventually Cozzie came into our life. A handsome Blue Heeler with a raccoon-like tail but with ‘trouble’ his middle name. We should have seen the signs. He was from a farm … More Cozzie and chaos
We fell in love with him at first sight. But it was Blue who chose us. He was just a six week old ball of fluff on four legs when we met him, I still remember him running clumsily towards us. All joy and pure innocence, with a huge belly that almost touched the ground and an even … More Ode to Bluey
