The Week in Pictures...

** It was a pretty uneventful week, despite the burst of cooler weather.
** I reorganised and sorted and cleaned.
** I came down with an ear infection. I could put up with the fever, the lethargy and the general ickiness, but I could not handle the pain. I didn't complete any of the mail art pieces I started because I spent most of my time on the lounge watching nothings on television and feeling sorry for myself.
** I finished one fantastic book and started another.
** I whittled away an afternoon in the kitchen after an electricity blackout (hurray for gas cooking!) and made tomato soup, herb foccacia, and preserved eggplant in oil.
** Shane had work in Port Germein so the Bailey-dog and I tagged along and went for a splash on the beach. The tide was out - perfect for a certain Spoodle that cannot swim, although he still managed to dive head-first into one of the creeks (estuary?) after misjudging its depth. He got a mouthful of sea water and splashed his way back to the bank. Funniest thing I ever saw.


  1. Fun, fun, fun!

    Hope your ear is getting better :)


  2. I hope your ear infection has gone. Bailey looks so cute in his harness.

  3. Hi Sorcha,

    It is always a joy hearing from you. Sorry to hear about you ear ache. Hope you are now feeling better?!

    Take care,

  4. Oh mate, I hope your ear clears up quickly! Ear infections are the worst.

    Bailey looks very dashing in his car harness. We need a more secure one for Lucy, she's a proper wiggler. I'm considering gaffer tape.... ;)

  5. Your spoodle is adorable! I hope you're recovering ok from your ear infection, they can be very unpleasant.

  6. That soup looks pretty yummy! Hope you are feeling better, ear infections are awful!
