My New Camera

Craig bought me a present last weekend and I love it! I'm not usually too good at accepting gifts from Craig, I feel like he's wasting hismoney on me, but this time I can fogive him. I can't post any photos I've taken yet as my laptop isn't set up or anything but I've got some great shots of the kittens and the obligatory self-portraits which had Craig in stitches. So beware when I'm once again connected to the Internet at home as you'll be inundated on here with photos.

Meet The Meadow Triplets

I thought I'd try and outdo Shelley by having not just twins but triplets. Unlike Shelley though my babies are kinda hairy but still cute.

This is Mishak

This is Shadrak

And this is Bob escaping from Graham

They're 8 weeks old and are so mischevious it is unreal but I love them. I know three cats is a little bit much but I just couldn't seperate them. Feel free to come over and see them in the flesh they are so much cuter than the pictures show (although I am a little biased)

First a trailer and now a tent

My husband is determined to change me from a spoiled brat who likes her creature comforts, to some ind of outdoors Grizzly Adams figure (well maybe not). He called today all excited about buying a tent, yes I said a TENT!! I am still adjusting to living in the trailer, for those who don't know me well, this is a difficult adjustment. Now he wants me to camp! I'm determined to be a supportive wife however, thanks to our bible study book, and I allowed him to make the decision and wholeheartedly supported him in it, that doesn't mean I have to be excited at the prospect of sleeping on the ground and having bugs bite me to pieces. So tonight I may be heading to Kaleden to camp, I sense copious amounts of alcohol may need to be consumed but I am prepared to do that support my husabnd, I'm such a considerate wife!

I'm getting webbed feet!

I can't take any more rain, I can't swim so if it doesn't stop soon I'm going to be in trouble. Add that to the fact that when the raindrops hit the roof of the trailer it sounds like a machine gun then you start to understand why I want it to end. Where did the sunshine go?

Creature From The Faulder Lagoon

I look diseased, since moving to Faulder the local mosquito population have discovered a new delicacy, clearly the blindingly white flabbiness of my delicate English form is just too much to resist. I have been bitten in every possible location on my body and each little bite is accompanied by a huge swollen mound. It wouldn't be too bad if they were confined to my body but unfortunately they have also managed to chomp on my face too so I'm a deformed to say the least and am trying to make my hair cover as much as is humanely possible whilst still being able to see. By the way nobody said that After Bite is one of the most evil substances known to man, wow that stuff stings, I think I'd rather scratch my skin off than have to put that stuff on. So if you see a lumpy figure shuffling around Summerland, struggling to see through a mass of unkempt hair then it's more than likely me so don't scream and run in the other direction.
