I have been very slack at keeping up with
my blog this year.  After losing my lovely Bronte
I decided I needed a little more soul food to cheer me up
and one of the first places I headed to was my blog following
so I am going to make an effort to be more committed in the new year.

Today I am heading out today to pick up a few supplies for 
work and throwing in a bit of early Christmas shopping.
This is a busy time of year for me and Christmas always
sneaks up on me.

I have been trying to get things done around the house too
as I have my whole family coming this year.

Most of the house is done but still have some pesky painting 
to do and a few pieces of furniture to get.

These were taking on a very foggy morning but the
tiles are down and we have planted lots
as well as the turf

We are going to  suspend a dark blue sale cloth up under 
the pergola, as those of you who live in Brisbane can understand
the more shade in summer the better.
More battens to go over the top and we have 
planted  a couple of vines to grow over the top

After much deliberation we order four of these lovelies
to go under the pergola, just looking for a coffee table to 
go along with them and some nice outdoor cushions.

I know where I will be this summer.

Have a great day

A Sad Good bye


A little over a week ago we came home to find our much loved
little Dog Bronte had passed away.
She had been battling with illness for some time

I had Bronte before I met my husband and had the kids.
She has been my best friend and constant companion
for 15 wonderful years.

My heart is shattered and I miss her so much.
 I am glad she is not suffering anymore.
Just hope that Puppy Heaven is an amazing place 
where she is running like a young dog again.
