It's hard to tell people you are relieved someone has died.

Here is a photo of Hildy, after she has been shown and having just burried a pigs ear in her bed. Doesn't she look pleased with her self?

At the back we have the re-potted mint, still not looking great, but that is a way bigger pot now, so I'm thinking positive. Next is the Italian Parsley, which looks great and is really tasty. It's doing really well when you think how small it started out! Then comes the two new Thyme plants, one lemon, one plain. Finally there is the new coriander plant. Buying coriander from the fruit shop is one of the banes of my existence (no I am not being overly dramatic) asit NEVER lsts more than a day, you only ever need a tiny amount and the rest ends up going mouldy! Grrr. Any way, as the parsley went sooooo well and coriander looks similar, I though I'd risk it. So we'll see how it goes ;)

So onto the life updatetm:
Work is improving, a lot. I am in the process of procuring a new boss, with in the framework of my present position. This also means I have work to do, which is most satisfactory. The new boss I lovely. I am getting the feeling that the old boss has yet to be old of this change in arrangements..... hmmm. Not my issue, kind of.
Updates to follow, as they occur.
On the 23rd and 24th of August, we started the process to get Clara 'knocked up'. The boy dog in question is very nice, his name is Harry, he is an American, Canadian and Australian champion:
He's even actually a nice dog when away from shows.
So, it's 9 weeks gestation and we have to wait til around 4 weeks to find out if there are any puppies. If there are some, they will arrive for my birthday and be ready for people to take home for Christmas! But we still have to wait another week or so to find out if there are any puppies. Fingers crossed, but also VERY nervous.
Grrrr. The garage fell down quite some time ago now (nearly 3 months) and we still aren't very much more advanced then we were then. Advances made:
- bricks picked up
- some wood removed to Martin's country property
- old tilt-a-door removed to Martin's country property
- shed company chosen
- building permit applied for
- building permit knocked back
- planing permit applied for
Tasks still to be completed
- permit (of any sort approved)
- Concrete cut up
- Footings dug
- Shed built
- concrete removed
- Stuff moved off the back porch
- concrete poured
- Neil's things moved from Camberwell
Will this ever end? I'm thinking 'no' at this stage.
Facebook/Bimbo and other web lives
I have some new obsessions that are probable taking time away from my all important blogging. One the dot game, on facebook, I love it, I can highly recommend it, go, play now. Two fish wrangler, on facebook, I love it, I can highly recommend it, go, play now. Three My Bimbo, it is good, but recently the change the look of the doll, and now it looks a bit too much like a 'bratz' doll for my liking, anyway, have a go, if you can be fagged.
Everyone is all good, except for Neil's Dad. Nothing new to report, that I have been told anyway.
I did have something to write under this heading, but I have forgotten it now....
