Good-bye Girl

Needless to say, things have been kind of crazy in the past few weeks - hence the lack of blogging... I can't believe it has been a month since I last posted.

As many know, we are gearing up to do the 'big move'. We have a half empty house now - well, half empty compared to what it was... and trust me, it was pretty full! We have sold a lot of our things, but I feel like we have so much more to go and we are quickly running out of time to get rid of them.

About two weeks ago we gave our beloved pet dog away as we will be unable to keep her when we are living in Sydney (no backyard = unhappy dog!) Thankfully we were able to find a really good home for her, infact we couldn't have hoped for a better home for her. The people have another dog - same breed and same age, and they live on a really big property with a couple of dams so the dogs can go swimming whenever they like. It was a sad day, the kids were pretty upset, but, considering she has gone to such a good home makes it a bit easier for us, we know she is being spoilt!

So, today, I thought I would do a quick post to let my blogging friends know I am still around and everything is ok...

...Oh and don't forget to drop back in and check out JPix on Thursday, I am hosting - get your picture posts in!!

.... Just another day ....
