Bex and Dante are flying to Invercargill today.
Sadly Steve has to stay here and work.
Bex is going down to attend her Dad's internment at their home town of Invercargill. AND catch up with all of her family, show off Dante etc.
I am sure she will have a lovely week... and I hope Dante isn't too disgruntled with travelling and being in strange places.
We will miss them both very much.
Now I think I mentioned taking heaps of photos of the pups last night, so here's the results:
Today I am working on Paisley's blankie... you can see a snippet of it above.
Bex and Dante have left, Stew is dropping them off at the airport. I hope she manages OK, she has a large suitcase, two 'day' bags and of course Dante to keep a hold of too.
Good news from Bex. Jet Star have been really, really helpful. They took her bags and put them on the plane right away, so she only has to deal with her day bag and Dante.
This is unusual as Jet Star have a very bad reputation for being useless! Maybe they are pulling up their socks?
ABOVE: Denise the travel case arrived for Paisley. Very impressed with how prompt the seller was. Sorry it's not PINK. lol
ABOVE: Our little man Dante. Sound asleep in his Uncle's truck. Bex said he slept on the plane, and he's asleep again! So, as Bex said, he will be a little live wire once he wakes up!
I reckon that will be good, cos he's got lots of family to meet and greet. *smiles*
ABOVE: I just finished Paisley's blanket. It's LONG... cos her name is LONG. Here's hoping neither of the boys end up with a very long name like Washington! Nah, I shall just shrink the letters down... silly me, I should have done that with Paisley's, but didn't think of it in time. Derrrr.
Right, I'm off to continue Christmas presents.
I got mail! Yep, it's a big deal... the only mail that usually arrives is bills...
ABOVE: first up... Felicity down in Christchurch sent me these totally cute 'nautical' bits 'n' bobs. Most are for sewing onto projects, and there is a cute little anchor and blingy thing that is going on my key ring. AND a nautical brooch. So cute. THANK YOU Felicity! YOU ROCK.
ABOVE: 2nd item in the post today: a Belated Birthday card, with gift inside. Thank You so much Sandi in Washington USA. You know what I am doing with your gift... I sent you an email about it. THANK YOU!!!
Gosh people are so lovely!
I just took all the puppies outside for a play, but they didn't like being outside today. It's blowing a gale and threatening to bucket down any moment now. The sky has gone really black...oooo thunder and lightening would be neat.
ABOVE: just talked with Lacy.... and she pointed out that I'd not put any photos of Miss Muppet on the blog today. WHOOPS. I did have this collage ready to go up, but fogot.
So, here they are Lacy... just for you. Miss Muppet having fun.
Some days I think I overdo it. Today is one of those days. I've been sewing every minute I could. My shoulders and back are killing me!
Time to stop. I accomplished heaps today... so it was worth it.
End of Day: knackered. Time to take a pill for the pain in me back and go to bed.
