Weekend away in Sydney

World famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

My lovely friend Michelle and I, met up for a weekend of Inspiration at the "I can do It!" conference in Sydney.

My arms weren't quite long enough for a great photo, but here we are enjoying our Friday afternoon doing the tourist thing in Sydney. We had a harbour cruise, a ride on a mini-train around Darling harbour, took a trip on the mono-rail and rode the Ferris Wheel (more photos to come).

It was great to be away from home and responsibilites and just relax together.

Thanks Michelle!

Puppy School Star

Sarah and Bella graduated from Puppy School last night. We had a wonderful 4 week course and they both learnt such a lot. It was great fun and gave Sarah a chance to interact with other dog owners, both adult and her peers. She was amazing.

For the final night, there was a prize for the best trick, well Sarah taught Bella to do 3 tricks. The first to 'nod' when she asked her if she liked puppy school. The second to 'drop and roll over' and her finale was to jump over a pole. Now those little legs, didn't allow her to jump very high, but she was wonderful.

Every puppy then got a chance to wear the graduation hat and have their photo taken, so here is Bella - STAR PUPPY!

Happy 72nd Birthday Dad

Sunday was Dad's birthday. We had such a lovely roast dinner down with Mom and Dad and I had the chance to have this lovely photo taken with my Dad.
It hit me for the first time ever, that he is 72 - he is so strong, healthy, active and well, that I never think of him aging. Still we are both getting older and it was lovely to share this wonderful meal together.
Dad, I know you plan to celebrate at least your 140th birthday, so I guess we will have a lot more of these photos together.

Flower Power Puppy

Sarah has completely fallen in love with her puppy. Bella is happy to run around with her in the garden and then fall asleep on her lap.

Today Sarah discovered the JOY and FUN of playing dress-up with Bella. The daisies are in full bloom and Sarah decided to decorate Bella, who patiently sat and had her hair dressed in flowers.

Sarah's grin and Bella's patient look says it all!
