First is our newest furry family member Genevieve, a long-haired chihuahua cross pomeranian. She continues to be a great source of delight to us and has started her training in earnest. Though she has only been with us for about a month, she has already learned "Sit" "Drop" and "Shake" and I've just started teaching her "Roll Over." I'll have to find some new tricks for her soon.
|Genevieve doesn't look too comfortable in her new winter coat|
|Since the coat we bought Genevieve was too large, I endeavoured|
to crochet her one, even though I'd never attempted to make
a dog coat before. I just had a good guess at it, and it looks ok.
|Genevieve loves her cuddles|
|Genevieve and Cinnamon the persian have become|
the best playmates, although Genevieve is
sometimes a little too rough!
As mentioned in the previous entry, I have finished my course-work and have received my Certificate of Completion in Certificate III in Aged Care. Once I complete my work placement, I can start looking for part-time work.

|A local magpie family visit regularly. Here's the mother|
and two of their offspring
|We've put a couple of perches near our back-steps which|
provides shelter for the birds from the weather.
|The magpies and laughing kookaburras are mostly civil|
to each other and willing to share, although occasionally
they have a little squabble or two.
|I found this weird beetle on our back window|
recently - not quite sure what it is though.
