Hi everyone 🙂
I have had my little rest and I think I am all the better for it. Blogging was becoming a chore and I didn’t want it to feel like that. I wanted to want to blog….. ya know? So, I am pretty bored with Crackbook and the fact it won’t let me prattle on for more than so many characters etc….that sucks! I have done a bit of housekeeping on here and condensed my pages a little. I have kept the Fluid and Mushie pages for new lapbanders that might like to refer to them. My blogging is not focusing on the band so much these days……but I will definitely do the odd band report!
I hope you have noticed that I have done a new winter themed header????? I took that yesterday 27th Aug when we stopped for a pee on the way back to Strahan from Devonport. A beautiful winter wonderland with fresh, fluffy snow……but these two were more interested in the bloody possum poo under the bush!! Oh well, I got a good bum shot…..and you know how I love my puppies bums 🙂
This happened while I was gone also………………………………..
After spending nearly an hour removing all the candles from the cake…..Nola deveoped a nasty stitch in her side!! 🙂
I had a lovely suprise dinner. I knew a couple of friends were coming….but I didn’t know they would have 50 plastered over every available surface at the venue and I would be required to wear a badge and a 50 crown just in case strangers missed the serviettes, balloon, glass etc!! lol lol I had a great night and got very spoilt. That was on the 15th Aug … so I have had some time to recover…..
We are certainly in the depths of our winter here! Today is a miserable day with hail and wind and very cold….about 10 degrees celcius today I think! I start work in a couple of hours and, as you can see, I am filling in my time constructively by getting back into my blog! I spent a few days with my sister who lives in Devonport….about 3hrs drive North of here. I did a little retail therapy and a lot of laughing. I just made it back here before we got snowed in. Strahan doesn’t exactly get snow on the ground because we are so coastal, but all the hills that surround us and the two roads out to the major towns/city to the North and South East of us get closed due to heavy snow falls. I heard on the radio they have been closed today. Here are some photos that I took travelling up and again coming back yesterday for your viewing enjoyment 🙂
This is the Stitt River at Rosebery…..about one third of my way to Devonport. I fell over here!! I had taken this photo and the dogs were happy peeing on everything. I went to walk back up towards the car and down I went in the moss 😦 It bloody hurt too! I was saturated and covered in moss, so I used the dogs towels to wipe myself down. I was just grateful I didn’t hurt my back, break me or my camera!
Our stop on the way back….the toilet block and rest area near Waratah. We couldn’t stay long here…..it started snowing really heavilly. A truck driver pulled in going the other way and he told me the road was clear….so I loaded up the dogs and pushed on. I was considering turning around and going back to Burnie at this point to stay with Ricky’s parents.
The rest area again…….just beautiful.
So, this will do for now and I promise to blog regularly from now on. I have been skulking about reading your blogs lately and leaving the odd comment……..how is Coco and her peeing, Chris? 🙂 I enjoy the blog community and I have missed it after only one month away!!
