Monday Mischief: What’s Worse Than Finding A Rat In Your Golf Bag?

Today’s mischief wasn’t caused by any permanent occupants of Flo’s house, but by unwanted house guests. I have known there’s been a rat in the storeroom for several weeks.  It was nibbling away at the lambs’ ears I had for … Continue reading

Fabulous Hols!

We’re home sweet home, happy and tired after a fantastic holiday over in Western Australia! Flo and Mackie hadn’t seen each other since she was about 10 weeks old.  At that point he was bigger than she was.  The first … Continue reading

Raindrops are Falling on my Head

It’s been a very wet week… a monsoonal low hovered above us for the first part of the week, threatening to develop into a cyclone, so work was cancelled on Wednesday.  Thankfully the tropical low came to nothing but I … Continue reading

Changing Diets, Annoying Owners, an Award and I Finally Found out What That Bird is!

Reclaiming the blog!

It’s time to turn the blog back over the Flo!  We’ve had a fairly quiet life centring around home, punctuated with our evening walks.  This week we managed a couple of puppy play dates when it was great to catch … Continue reading

Dingoes and spangled drongos

Hurrah!  We’ve had almost no chewing ‘issues’ this week!  OK, so there’s not that much left to chew.  I rather foolishly left a box of new golf balls downstairs and came home to find them all removed firstly from the … Continue reading

Burnt Offerings

We’ve been confined to barracks for such a long time now and it’s clearly not good for either of us.  I’ve been missing our walks and Flo has demonstrated her displeasure at missing out on exercise by looking for other … Continue reading
