Nose To Nose


Yipee the snow has all gone bar a huge mound at the end of my road - now i'm really busy catching up on all the things i wasn't able to do last week as OH (got sick too) was home all week and son for 3 days - just spent 30 mins in post office posting cards , 3 were for Australia, so i'm sure they now won't get there in time !!!, at least we now have all of son's Xmas and Birthday (3rd Jan) pressies, yipee - thanks to Amazon and Toysrus.

Right on to todays card and 'Beauty' - i picked this image as :

1) To me seeing my 3rd year old Son and Whisper playing nicely in the field - is the best feeling in the world

2) Whisper -  is such a cutie and i love her to bits (although some people may not agree, as they are not  dog people) she's a rescue dog and we have had her 5 and a half years and i wouldn't swap her for the world, so much so that OH is dreading the day anything happens to her.
