This is what scares me...



Menus....
Large or small it doesn't matter...I'm scared of all of the choices. Going our for breakfast... I have to think ahead. This sees me mapping out my choices before I go to bed.
I spend time worrying over such a simple decision. I have trouble eating so early in the morning but I love food?!!
So I decided on a Muffin, to be told that we don't have muffins this early (8am).
So then I get scared at looking over all the choices. Eggs bacon fruit....arrhhh it drives in crazy.
Cocktails on friday night turn into 15page headache...I was in trouble...but the end result was fantastic.
My poor friends now know to order with out me.
I will come to the decision in my own time
So yes Menus scare me the most and trying to follow a sewing pattern.

30 days - day 17


cooking lessons...it may look all grey and stewy...but this is my most favourite dish...honey eggplant! I love to learn....

30 days - day 12


It made me laugh.....

This is my cup....times 2


These are the beautiful Victoria Mason earings that I'm in LOVE with.
I got them from Mikes.
They are my first love.....

.....my second love.
It's from T2 and it's more of a bowl with a handle than a cup.
It's not all that fancy and international but it's my favourite too!

Oh pretty lady





Some things are ment to be...she was found at the right time and was polished up and given new wheels and flowers in her basket to give her extra attention and love!!
I LOVE HER. I Love the freedom of riding, just figuring out that I have been wearing my helmet backwards for the past three weeks and the roll down Brunswick St after work.
3 is my favourite number
Lady is what I get called by my housemate and
I once had a ladybird garden in a fish tank.

All I need now is an extra long basket for the back. I would love for Moca to come for a ride every now and then.
He would look like this........

I haven't seen Moca since he escaped from my mums house at the beach and was found on the highway just managing to not get hit by a car.
We don't know how he managed to get out. He was locked inside with only the window at the kitchen bench open, which is 6 time taller than he is!!
I'm so thankful for the lovely person that stopped to get him and that we didn't lose two dogs to Cars this summer. I really recommend that you Micro- Chip your animals. If Moca didn't have one, he would be lost and we would be without each other.
I finally get him back this week. It's been on vacation for nearly a month now and I can't wait for him to take up all of the bed again!!

30 days - day 8


My new little fabric stash...thanks to Adelaide!!

Back and minus a kitten


I had such a lovely mini break.
Unpacking all of my Loot makes me the happiest of all. Actually I've done a lot of unpacking this week. But my friends are the greatest thing in the world and I would walk up and down stairs for them any day, As long as it involved a mattress for the ride down.
Blogger won't let me upload any more pictures, so I'll be back with day 8 later today.

30 days - day 3


I wondered why my water bottle had green all around it.
So I went to this website and found out why.
With the barcode from my water bottle, I could help Landcare Australia plant 5 of the 250,000 native Australia Trees that they will be planting around the country.
My tree was planted in W.A and Mocas in VIC.
The Web site so fricken adorable.

When you entre your code a little boy fly's in with a kite and a bottle of water to dig a hole, to then plant the shrub, then he waters the shrub, then it grows a little and you have a tree named after you. I named a tree after 3 of my freinds, I wonder when they will find out?!

100th Post...I feel good!!


I turn 100 TODAY!!
YAY 100 Blogs.
Thank you to all that have commented and pointed me in the direction of all things sausage dog like and for the people that have purchased some part of my crazy obsession. All lovely people that I have met, the constant inspiration and kindness really does keep us going!
So....
...I'm thinking a give away is in order. I'm thinking a Sausage dog softie and what ever else I decided to pack on the day, could be good.
So leave a comment and Moca will Ta-whit-ta- at the comment he likes the best!!


Oh this was the highlight of my year.
My beautiful friend Piri, now known as Dr Piri Cutts, allowed me to experience the greatest thing in the world!!
These little puppies are Burmese Mountain Dogs, that we helped delivered by C-section on Christmas Eve.
I stood and watch everything. From the Vet cutting the mums belly to the first baby being pulled out. The yuk side of it didn't even come into thought, and still doesn't to this very moment. We had to rub the 11 puppies to life until little squeaks came out of them!! Sigh!!
This little girl was the runt and the one I fell in love with. She was already out of her sack and if born by natural birth she would have died. She was only 3.3grams and as you can see fitted into my had, and I have small hands so she is really small!!
Thank you Piri for allowing me to experience something so beautiful. I will be your vet nurse any day. I think my blanket stitch is now good enough to sew up any operation!

Happy Saturday to all

Lookie here....



This is my extra Splendid standout Christmas present.
She is all red and smooth and had lots of envy from the cafe staff, at our pre christmas breaky.
I felt that she needed so show off all of her best angles.
And we have a new addition to the Sausage Dog collection. It's slowly growing. I'm hoping to be on The Collectors one day!

Happy Thursday to all!!

2007 into 2008



My boss was really nice and let me have monday off. So I was lucky to head home for a couple of days and enjoy the heat and the new year with the cool sea breeze.
Moca and I met lots of dogs. A Basset Hound called Mabel and a French Bull dog called Frog. Moca and I went running at two little mini sausage dogs called Lucy and Harry.
Oh and I found my Holly Hobbie towel from when I was born (thanks mum). She managed to keep our beer and Udls extra cool at the beach!!
And I thought bugger it...I'm going to show my face!
Happy New Year to all!!
