Arid Lands, Dog Friendly and Hospitals

The house these last few days has been very quiet. I have gotten so used to the WaWa , barking and running to greet me that I miss her. Benji is there but he is not the demonstrative  dog the WaWa was so his greeting – whilst no less loving – is a quiet affair. […]

Arrium, winter and Sooah returns.

One of the things I dislike about this time of year is that it’s cold. Well, of course it’s cold. That’s why it’s called winter, you idiot.  Well, yes, I suppose so, but by the time it’s warm enough to actually go work outside it’s practically lunch and given another hour and the temperature starts […]

Arrium, Brunch and Misty Days

For much of last week and for what remains of this week, I have been playing gofer. “Would you go to the supermarket and get me more flour” “Why do you need so much flower? We’re supposed to feed ém not fatten ém!” “Well if I don’t have flour I can’t make scones” “Will that […]

Dogs, Emus and Daleks

Swans, Beach and a Day Trip

Up until fairly recently there were areas that were a sort of sanctuary – Benji went there and the WaWa stayed clear. One of these areas was my bed. Benji  curled himself up at the back of my legs and slept there. However, over the last week or so the WaWa has become my BFF and […]
