Happy Birthday Baby Bear!

My baby has turned 15. Sniff. Where did the time go?

He's 15, but I still call him my baby chick.

Cause I still remember him like this.

And then it flowered....

Ohhhh my Valentine's Day present flowered for the first time....just in time for Christmas. #Love.


This is our dog, Bella. She's a whippet (think Santa's Little Helper on The Simpsons) and she's almost 9 nine years old!

We still don't have a front fence so she can't stay with us. She's being looked after elsewhere a couple of suburbs away and we have to go and feed her each day.

Bizarre camera angle, she does actually have ears!

She's such a sweet dog. We're building a fence soon. Hopefully she can come home in the new year.

Backed a winner!!

I have NEVER won at the races. Never! Nada! Nothing! Not even in the office sweeps. But finally, yesterday, hurrah, I backed a winner not once, but twice!!

So forever in history, at Tattersall's Race Day, Emerald Duke, horse number 7 in race 3 will be my first ever winner! My $5 bet won me $23. My second bet was "Rudy" and I won a further $13.

AND I got to wear a fascinator. It was indeed a good day!
