I feel a bit guilty because even though it is a bit nerve wracking up there, we are starting to see rain clouds developing and we are desperately hoping for some good rain here in Brisbane from the edges of the cyclone - rain is something that we really really need right now!
Anyway enough chatting I had better get on and post my photos (yes I'm still going!! Woohoo!!)
Day 61Even though she is eating more she still looks very slender and frail - she got sick again at the end of the week and on Friday I had to take her to the vets again. The vet and I think we know what is triggering these attacks now, it seems because she is old her liver can't handle the chemicals in the Excelpet flea tablets and so Chelsea gets sick. We have been able to give her an antibiotic needle this time as she wasn't as far gone as she was the last time - thank heavens. She finally ate breakfast this morning, so I am hopeful that this second bout won't be as damaging to her health. Now she will only ever have good quality flea control from the vet!!!!
Day 62The girls did some posing in the backyard for me today and while I took lots of lovely photos I picked this one to post today as Tasha has a couple of other photos of her to be posted. I really loved this photo of Bella, I love the fall of her hair!
Day 63I was a bit surprised to come out of my office today to see this smokey haze all over the northern skyline. Apparently (as my hubby informed me) the firies are doing controlled burn offs to reduce the chance of bushfires here in the coming dry season. It is handy have a firefighter husband sometimes lol. Oh and today was the day I rolled my ankle over and while I did take a photo of my crutches and strapped ankle I thought that you all might be just a bit sick of my stupid ankle and it's need to roll over all the time so I thought the haze was more interesting ROFL
Day 64Here is my good little Tasha showing off her Deputy Principals Gold award for excellent behaviour in the classroom. She was so proud and asked me to take a photo as soon as we got home! I'm just wondering where all this excellent behavior goes when she gets home??? Maybe she wears it all out at school LOL
Day 65Inspired by my bloggy friend Carol, who took a very nice photo of herself in the bathroom mirror for her photo-a-day project I decided to do the same myself. Sadly the merciless lighting in the bathroom made me look like a strung out dr*g add*ct so I rushed the photo into lightroom and ran one of DYP's gorgeous presets over me and I think I look a BIT better, well certainly less like a crack wh*re now ROFL!
Day 66Me: What's your favorite breakfast in the whole world Tasha?
Tash: Boiled eggs Mum!
Me: Don't you like cereal Tash?
Me: Don't you like fruit and yogurt Tash?
Me: How about toast?
Me: What would you like for breakfast today Tash?
Tash: Boiled Eggs Mum!
Our regular Saturday morning conversation.
Day 67On the other hand, Bella says to me on Sunday morning "OMG MUM!" What is on this sandwich?? I said: "what? Your bacon, egg and hash-brown sandwich hun?" "MUM there is EGG on this sandwich!! GROSS!!" sigh! This was the breakfast we had to have in order to eat in the car on our way to help my Mum move house.
