Say hello To Buddy

On Boxing day my 8 year old bunny Flossy died. She was buried in the square block of the vegie garden and has lettuce, zucchini, basil and spring onions planted over her. It was such a shock and a sad day.

I moved Cadbury into Flossy's cage this left a nearly $100 cage sitting there not producing compost and no little face greeting me.

Meet Buddy, a Netherlands Dwarf male rabbit. He's seven weeks old.

Already knows what a frozen ice bottle is for and how to use it. First night in his house he dined on carrot, apple and cucumber.

I named him after Patrick Swayze, my most fav actor (even before the kids were born) and I have a draw full of DVDs to prove it. Patrick Swayze's nickname was "Buddy"................ As I am reading his autobiography my Pat gave me for Christmas, I thought the name was a great idea.

Maybe next year there might be the pitter patter of little feet.

Until next time........ stay safe and enjoy your New Year celebrations and all the best for 2010.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. How did your Christmas Day fair?????? Mine was just wonderful and so relaxing.

Pat & I had lunch at Amy's future in-laws house, English style with turkey and all the trimmings. I had always wanted to try a martini and thanks to Tony (Ben's dad) I did. Boy are they yummy. I even had 2 olives in it.

Then for dinner we went to my brother's place for a few hours and a cold meal, of left overs from the hot lunch. Brought a bag of food scraps home for the chooks and they sure enjoyed those prawn heads from Mick & Sally lunch.

Came home stuffed with good food and lots of lovely presents.

I want to show you one of my presents and this is a beauty. James isn't a big fan of my green thumb and what it can grow and feed us. May a time he has commented about the backyard.

But look what he gave me.

How cool is this??? Its great when a mum finds out years later in life, that some of what she has told her son, did sink in.

Couple of pages of what the book is like inside.

Thanks James so much.

Enjoy your holiday break people and all the best for the New Year.

Until next time....hoo roo
