Happy Easter

What does Easter look like to you?   
  

To me Easter looks like this, it looks like family and food and Easter eggs – not just the chocolate kind but the hard boiled and coloured ones as well (queen eggs). It is a little bit of Greek mixed in with a whole heap of Aussie. 

Hope you all had a lovely Easter. 

  

New Year fizzle

So 2016 hasn’t exactly started off as amazingly as I was hoping, in fact it’s been quite the fizzle.
Bolt, my sisters beautiful dog, that I have blogged about many times, is unwell. Last night NYE, we noticed some swelling in his ear flap and this morning the Vet has confirmed that it is a blood clot and that Bolt would need to be operated on. 
Bolt has always had problems with his ears but nothing this extreme – he didn’t appear to be in any pain or discomfort last night, nor this morning but he did start shaking his head vigorously again which according to the vet is what has caused the blood clot in the first place. 
For a 13 year old dog surgery of any kind is a big deal, so we are all anxious at the moment, it doesn’t help that Bolt is actually my nephews dog and he is currently overseas. 

So to reiterate 2016 has not begun as I had hoped!! Get well Bolt xxx

  

Bring on the summer!!

  
Today the kids had their first swim it’s only October and we are swimming already!! The forecast this year is for a long hot summer, and I for one cannot wait!! 

There is something about summer time that makes you want to smile. Makes you want to be outside sipping Spritz (delicious Italian cocktail) talking and laughing with family and friends. 

Bolt’s birthday 

  
Today we celebrated Bolt’s 13th birthday!!

Bolt is my sister’s dog – well actually he is my nephew’s dog – he is a Labrador cross Blue Heeler, a more loving and gentle boy you will never find.

  
  
   
    
 It was a lovely night celebrating a much loved member of our family, there was cake and food and presents all the things typically found at a birthday celebration and of course at the end of the night the birthday boy was exhausted from all the excitement.

  
Happy Birthday Bolty 

Fifty the ultimate F word 

  
We celebrated my sister’s 50th Birthday on Saturday and it was such a great night!! 
Everyone was just lovely and my sister was soo happy it was the perfect night!!
