Rain!!! Computers and a Great Giveaway.


Guess what we had 14mls of rain a few days ago. Yippee I can hear you say. Well that was a huge amount for us. Though it was on a very hot humid day I will gladly take it. After a extremely dry year last year I am grateful for any rain.

Now I was hoping to get back looking and blogging on a more regular basis but unfortunately I googled some images of "Cornucopia's" the other night and I think I may have attracted a bug to our computer. With this it is better to be safe than sorry. So Ian has taken the hard drive to our repair man. I am using David's old laptop at the moment.

Hello, my name is Bullet
Do you love dog's? Everyone likes to pat them when they come to you puffing and wagging there tail.
Carolyn is being such a great sport and is planning to make dog coats for members of the dog community for the S.P.C.A She wants us to think up a name for her project and she has some great prizes on offer including a dog coat.
Carolyn's Box Pouch,one of the prizes on offer.
You may be able to help Carolyn make a dog jacket as she has a pattern to use. So all you dog lover's out there get on to Carolyn's blog and enter and spread the word. Who could resist that smile from Bullet.

Happy days.
Bev C

Hi, Bev! Happy New Year! Wasn't last one in which you had brush fires going? A little rain has to be better than that. I think that would be very scary!

Cute dog! Glad you had so much rain lately. We had a lot of rain in Dec, but nothing this year so far. Send some this way if you have enough! Hugs

My sister spent two weeks in Australia recently and got rained on a lot! But she still loved it! I bet all that rain is refreshing for your gardens (esp. the roses). Love that expression on Bullet - what a cutie!

So glad to hear you've had some lovely rain. Hope we have a bit more here soon, too. But not when my brother is here (please not then), he's been in Brisbane since 1 December and has had very few fine days. Glad our weather has been so nice for Lucy!

Isn't it nice to see the tanks getting full. Don't like to think what it is like up north . The box pouch looks interesting .
