So until such time as as old/new computer is up and running, readers will have to put up with the limited old photos that were stored on the laptop. All very basic I'm afraid!
This is Dexter aged about one year old I would say. The double chinned wonder holding him is now incredibly tall, lean and handsome (you just have to take my word for it). He would never be seen in a shirt like this, that's for sure.
I'd like to thank whatever lucky star was shining on me the day I approached my old boss to let him know that I was looking for work and to let him know that I needed him as a referee. He emailed back to say that he might be able to offer some part time work.
Not really the exact work I've done before, but hey who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Nothing like being thrown in the deep end and pretending you know what you are doing!!
So I'm incredibly thankful for this opportunity and will just wait and see how it pans out. The downside is that it is a 1.5hr commute each way (!?!?) but I'll be catching the train and catching up on my reading as well. This situation may or may not work out, but at least it is throwing me back into the current workforce which will look a lot better on my CV.
Chooks, dogs and to a certain extent, family willl have to struggle on the best they can. It may be a wake up call for certain members of the family (not mentioning any names of course).
======We have a new addition to the chook yard in the form of a peacock. Well peahen I think. It just turned up one day and has made itself at home. It nests high in the trees at night. Does anyone have any experience with them? Would it just be looking for company and/or food? I've been giving it some grain and it has water access. I'm guessing though that it is looking for a mate. We only have Little Dandy the bantam rooster, sorry Ms Peahen.
=========Cheers for now - I think I will go back to commenting on comments, it seems more personal.
