Meet Turbo

We have a couple at church who are looking after a guide dog in training. His name is Turbo and he is gorgeous.

Cayley got to have a bit of a meeting with him at a barbecue we had in February.

She thought he was great.


Looks like it was mutual.

The New Catalogue


It’s here. It’s gorgeous and my wishlist is too long to believe.

How long will yours be?

E-mail me to get your copy. Catalogue is $10 if you pick it up, $12.95 if I post or deliver to you. But I am offering a $10 voucher to customers who purchase their catalogue during April when they spend $100 on Stampin’ Up!® product.

Of course you can view the catalogue online, but there’s nothing like sitting curled up on the couch flicking through the paper copy in my opinion.

Bunny and Silver

Elisha and M. have a pretty good friendship for their age. They don’t see each other very often because of distance.

Last time they saw each other would have been two years ago, yet they hit it off right away, and I’m pretty sure they even remembered each other.


And Then…

Yesterday we took a trip to the zoo.

No photos yet, haven’t had time to play with them. But had to capture this memory before it drifted away.

We bought some afternoon tea, spread our rug on the grass and enjoyed the weather and each other’s company.

Elisha, Cayley and I had icy poles. Brett had hot chips.

Cayley decided she’d have a few hot chips (“Pipi” as in chippy) too. Okay, maybe more than a few. She was going for it, while the going was good. Eventually Brett’s goodwill ran out. He handed her three more chips and told her that was it.

She seemed fairly okay with that. Which was nice, because for those of you who know our daughter she can howl like a banshee when she thinks it is in her favour.

Suddenly she was very excited about something in the middle of the park. “Oooh, oooh!!!!” she squealed in a most delighted and enthusiastic tone of voice.

We all simultaneously turned to look, and share her enjoyment.

And then…

When we turned back, she was eating pipis again.
