Weekending

It's dawn, Im just about to pack the car for a trip down the highway to have Dental Surgery. Living in the bush is just the best until you need medical care 2 hours away.  It could be worse but I'm not looking forward to the trip home......OUCH.  I'll pop back here when I'm over the hump.  

Love to you and yours.  Leonie x

Leonie's Porn


Now THAT ladies, is a mighty fine read!!  I wonder, if I leave it on the front seat of the ute, the "man power brains trust" of the household will get the hint, that his Mrs wants to go shopping for a new hedge trimmer!

Arrrh.........to dream of the battery powered hedge trimmer! No more leads for Leonie to cut through, alas nearly electrocuting herself and then having to sneak up to the neighbours to get the brand spanking new 20 meter lead fixed before Dave gets home and realises that his latest purchase has been reduced to a tidy 18 meters!

Whatta man, whatta man, whatta mighty good man!

Yes he is!!!

LOOK at this.....look what he has done for his Mrs!!  Lined up all those juicy wheelbarrows full of mulch, faced them down hill, even wiggled the one with the flat tire (didn't realise the tire was flat until he filled the bloody thing) into place!  I tell you ladies....that is FOREPLAY at its best!! 

Fine print...Ladies feel free to forward this post onto your beloved, might give him a bit of heave-ho incentive to get going!



Nature on our doorstep

Take one Koala leisurely strolling though our yard (first sighting of the season...very exciting!!).
Add one very excited family in their PJ's.
Laugh at excited photographer running into the house screaming....GRAB THE CAMERA!
Fast forward 5 minutes due photographer having to run back to house, once she had returned to excited family, as she realised that sim card was not in said camera. 

Alas may I present my photo of the week.......a Koalas Arse!! 

Love to you and yours.  Leonie xx

May I present........



I am so excited.  As some of you are aware, I have a son with special needs and at the very beginning I spent months in and out of hospital.  It sucked....big time.  I have never written about it here and never will but lets just say, that this farm chick nearly went insane cooped up in a hospital bed. 

Fast Forward 14 odd years....it's time to give a bit back.   We still have some pathology tests to do but it's looking good.  We have been given the opportunity to visit our local hospital for 1 1/2 ish hours per week.  Layla will be providing the wonderful benefits of pet therapy, spending time with patients and offerering a chat, a floppy ear to listen and a paw to shake. This is going to be soooooo much fun!!

SPECIAL THANKS go to....... 

Vanda and her band of Volunteers at Delta Society Geelong for all there help and hard work.

Kylie Johnstone (and family) of Mannaview Labradors for breeding the best Labradors on the PLANET!!!  (I even think she may have some delicious puppies available at the moment.) 

If you would like to donate to Delta Society or Sponsor Layla and myself in the "Red Bandanna Club" Click HERE.

Thanks again to everyone involved.  Woof! xx

I'm a bit of a mess...

I have just had to put my dear old dog Jack down. 

He was 19 years old, he was sore, tired, blind and hard of hearing.  He deserved to have his life end in a dignified manner. 

I am sad and I will be for quite some time, but having the green dream put him to sleep so peacefully, it was just.....how can I say....beautiful? 

I have been involved in some pretty hard palliative care situations (not sure if there is ever an easy one) and I have to wonder, are we treating people with the dignity they deserve? 

I'm not so sure we are. 

Dearest Jack, Your time has come, you may now rest in peace my old friend.  xx

I think I'm a little run down.

Take 1 middle aged flu ridden woman. 
Add soft (may have been a little erotic) romance novel. 
Enjoy story line until leading lady gets cervical cancer.
Google early symptoms of cervical cancer, just to keep those things fresh in mind.
Realise 1 hour later......I have no cervix. 

Hysterectomy a few years back.....kinda forgot! 

Gowd forbid.....is this early dementia???? SHOOT ME NOW!

Allow me to introduce you to LAYLA

She is AMAZING!! I'm a little lost for words actually. She is just THAT special. She treads so softly around Finn yet gets up and going with Asha. She displays canine love of the very finest kind and we are so lucky to have her.

Welcome to the family Layla!!
