Well yes we are still in blogville..just..the staff AKA Mum the spud has been so ‘busy’ she has neglected to help us blog!
Of course we can’t complain much or Santa might not come..you know how it is..we try and say hi to peeps and try to visit blogs and then she falls asleep..or runs out the door..or trips over (always) …
Anywho we know there have been many sad departures this past week to the Rainbow Bridge..we all feel the sadness and have sent our heartfelt love to all those peeps who have said goodbye to their truly best friends in the world..no time is good but Holidays make it worse somehow..it’s a time for family and when one member is missing..well we all know..
So today while Mum has 5 minutes to scratch as she says..peeps..sheesh..we want to share a bit of what we have been up to down under in preparation for Santa…this year Mum gets out of being the Christmas hostess for the first time! in like 33 years ..you would think she had time then wouldn’t you! and the family is meeting at Rhiannons house this weekend..of course temp is meant to be 40c so Mum is thrilled…really thrilled..
We have had a bit of trouble trying to get Felix,Oscar and Jock shorn but tonight we got the call and they will have the sheep stylist Thursday…so Dad and Mum have to set up a place for them to be for 24 hours before on water only…yikes!
Mum got her Christmas cake done and after the marzipan dried she got to with the fondant..talk about overkill..especially since nobody but Mum and Dad eat it MOL..did i hear you say weight watchers..or regular potty trips…yeppers MOL..
The garden looks awful..the front has been hit by heat humidity locusts and baby bunnies who have Mum in a tizz..see we are supposed to get rid of them..but truth be told Mum and Dad are softies..so Mum has to settle for running out the front all the time shooing them off..they are fast..Mum is not….MOL..but it does keep us kitties entertained watching them!
The stick insects are also fun to watch..it has been really hot..and Dad has made a great system for Mums Veggies so she just flicks a switch and they are watered..otherwise she would have even less time than she already claims to have!
We got Mum to send our cards and some parcels out and even helped Mum do some for peeps and pets not so lucky as us..so Mum and the post lady are almost on BFF list with each other MOL..
Mum also had her second market last weekend and hot as it was she did even better than last time..she loves chatting to folks and loves to talk about the images and where they were taken etc..Mum could talk under water..just sayin..but the day was hot..and by the time she and Dad got home they were pooped..on the way to market they had to stop as a Roo and her young joey were right in the middle of the road..sheesh…they are everywhere at the moment..looking for water and feed .
We have received some cardies in the snail mails too! and beautiful ecards..and when Mum is sorted she will do a slideshow for you so we can say a huge thankyou..we truly love how caring you all are..even when we are pretty poor form with not blogging here !
Some of you might not know but it has been a pretty hectic time here as our Dad was made redundant from his job of 26 years..we had lot’s to sort out and do but it is all great..Dad is starting his own business and has already got lot’s of things lined up..but for awhile it was pretty hard on Mum and Dad..a big shake up..so sort of the reason we have been awol..
So we are going to let Mum go have a swim ..the pool is 27c and it’s a humid yukky night so we will go snooze under the fans..the pups have been given their Santa present early!! ours is still under the tree…unfair…but Mum and Dad said it was a must! see Doc and Forrest are getting older they will be 14 and 13 next year..and the heat is already causing them problems..so Mum and Dad asked Santa to deliver their pressies early..they got fabulous cooling mats..they are safe and sturdy and reduce the heat by the pressure of their body..this cools them down..a great idea and already they are zonked on them! and with that and the wet bandanas Mum puts on them and their pool they should be ok..so anywho..i am off Mum wants a swim..we shall catch up soon..please enjoy some pics of things we have been up to..paw pats Dinnermintz xxxxx
