At Last!

At last we're in!!

There was a lot of this….squeezing big through small….around corners....up stairwells….up and over balconies….and then the inevitable "it won't fit so it has to go!"  And believe me, lots went.

And now 'the light and lightness'.
Cold misty light streaming  into windows up high….borrowed tropical light from the neighbour's garden enhances our view….and a lightness of possessions….yes, I'm liking this new chapter.
Xiu Xiu loves his new abode too…..and has already taken his place in the sun.
Such a spoilt little chap….but how can I deny him?

Off to Melbourne soon….looking forward to that.

A special date to see Warwick Freeman's new jewellery exhibition at Gallery Funaki…..the "David Bowie is" exhibition is also showing….and a few of Catherine the Great's trinkets, "Masterpieces from the Hermitage" are on show at the National Gallery of Victoria.  I reckon I won't see a 'lightness of possessions' in that exhibition!

Strike a Pose

What a week I've had!

Birthday parties, celebrations with the hubster, family and friends, dancing on the wild side with Xiu Xiu, and Autumn slowly making its presence felt in Brisbane.

So, I "struck a pose" for the celebrations.

Enjoy....I certainly did!


P.S.  It'll be a few weeks before I post again as our townhouse is nearing completion and I'll be busy packing, unpacking and settling into our new abode.  Can't wait!!!

Boys Will Be Boys


It was party time on Sunday and I met up with my griffon brothers, Xiac and Xox for a celebration.
This is Xiac.
This is Xox.
And of course, you know me, Xiu Xiu.

We're griffons and we're part of the "X" Litter!
We rocked….
and rolled….
and did the bump.
We had lots of yummy things to eat….
and we really liked playing on the pebble rug.
Mummy kept saying "Boys will be boys."  I'm not sure what she meant by that.

Our favourite game was "Play in the Tunnel and Rip it to Shreds".
Exploring the garden was fun too.

Xox liked posing in the pot plant….but he wasn't too fussed when told to get out.
And when it was time for us to go home, Uncles Darryl and Lewis gave us party hats and treats.
Woof!  Woof!  What a great party!!!!!!!!!!
Sniff you later!!

Woof!  Woof!

Mr Monkey went to the party too....he just loves the "X" Litter!

I've found a new iPhone app that turns your photograph into an automatic sketch.  Like this....
....and this....
....and this.
Not sure what I'll do with my automatic sketches....praps I'll get a few printed up and assemble a window collage of them.

I saw these air plants up at a local bromeliad show.  They absolutely stopped me in my tracks!!

Architectural,  easy to grow and in colours that I want for our new townhouse, black and white.

I'm planning a mass planting of them down the side fence and garden.....could look interesting I think!
Anyway, I'm off to the local garden centre now.....for some Cousin It....and maybe some automatic sketching!

Life Was Meant to be Easy

I've been soooo busy since my last post.  Flat out like a lizard drinking!!!

Playing, going for walks, attending puppy school, having a shampoo and blow-dry, discovering new people and places, meeting up with my brother and exploring all the local haunts!

Every day seems to be so hectic.
It's exhausting!  And, you know, sometimes I just want to chill.
So, this morning, I went down to the 'local' with mummy for a coffee.  Nice.
Nodding off was even better.
Well, life was meant to be easy, wasn't it?
I think I'll let mummy do the blog posts from now on.

I'm going to take it a bit slower.


Woof!  Woof!

Sniff you later!
