Wordless Wednesday: The art of pastel making at Unison in the UK


A Merry Queensland Christmas

Merry Christmas to you all from Two Black Dogs! In contrast to the snow and Gluhwein we enjoyed at the Christmas markets in Europe, our Christmas day began with a trip to the beach. Breakfast was baked ham and eggs on toast accompanied by a glass of Australian sparkling wine. Thankfully the weather has been good to us and it is a mild, slightly breezy day with moments of blue sky and sunshine.

Maxi and Bundy love the beach, Maxi returns to her puppy-hood and bounces across the sand and through the water. The dear old girl never looks happier than when she is at the beach. Bundy just enjoys running, sniffing and splashing around, a swimmer he is not. At home they’re sleeping soundly, recovering from an exciting morning and dreaming of their next adventure.

Wishing you a day filled with love and laughter! Be safe and be happy xox

Home again

Our little family is back at home, we were concerned about the amount of rain that we’d had over the last week but thankfully there isn’t any water damage in our house. The fur-kids are very happy to be home, as much as they love the chance to swim in the river or run on the beach, they’re happiest when at home and ruling the roost – Bundy especially.

At the moment Maxi is sleeping on the floor behind me, she has this knack of finding the spot closest to the wheels of my office char so that I have nowhere to go and if I do happen to forget she is there she certainly lets me know if I bump her. Bundy is following my husband around the yard, he loves exploring our jungle-like garden which is occasionally home to possums and maybe a rat or two thanks to our location near bushland.

Today is New Years Eve, there will be fireworks, sparkling wine and yummy food, we will be staying home and enjoying the fact that we can drink as much as we like without having to worry about driving, taxi queues and outrageous restaurant surcharges. It has always been a special night for us, but as we get older it is more about enjoying the company of good people and less about partying hard.
