Xenia is clearly a water cat. To save our sanity with her incessant meowing at the tap, we bought her her very own cat drinking fountain. As you can see by the video, she totally loves it. Can a cat explode if they drink too much water?
Alec and I ended up with an unexpected house guest who will be staying for most of the year. Xenia is Shelley’s Himalayan cat who was in need of a temporary home while Shelley and Eric are off in the UK.
It’s really nice coming home to a little person at night, especially since I’m usually alone a lot while waiting for Alec to get home from work or wake up on weekends. Alec is really enjoying having a little friend while he is up late working as well.
Somehow I managed to get Alec to agree to a pre-wedding shoot with the dogs. I was super-keen to get some really nice photos of our little family as I have few if any that are really nice quality, and the pooches can’t be involved in our wedding at all.
We met our wonderful photographer, Vincent Lai, at Bicentennial Park for an hour of pooch fun.
I just love the photos – here is a small selection of my faves.
Cute pics of my girls.
The Olympic torch was lit for the World masters Games in Homebush. Mum, Dad, the dogs and I checked it out.
A lovely date night spent in Pyrmont and Cockle Bay. We started with dinner at Bartino, the Spanish tapas place near work, then walked across to the Sydney Aquarium to see the dugongs I had bought tickets for Alec for his birthday.
Lovely, lovely evening out 🙂
Love my girls.
For a belated birthday celebration, we had dinner at Not Bread Alone at Crows Nest. I did take pics, but the lighting was terrible and the photos were awful, so no food pics!
The RSPCA Million Paws Walk is one of my favourite days of the year. Last year poor Kahlua had an ear infection and couldn’t make it, so this year it was lovely to all go together again.
The girls were in fine form. The sun was out, there were thousands of gorgeous dogs everywhere – what a glorious day.
Just more playing around with my beautiful new camera.
