I like a toasted bagel with a double serve of bacon please.

And bacon for you...

Trying to put my shoes on.

This is my morning routine with my new rescued dog Winnie.
I'm trying to put my shoes on, but Winnie is nipping playfully at my fingers, pulling my socks out of my hands, and slithering like an eel around my feet.


It's very funny and it's something I look forward to because I know it will make me laugh.


Ow, don't bite my toes !

Winnie's first trip to the beach.

It's a quiet and cold Saturday at Port Melbourne beach.
This is Winnie's first trip to the beach with us.


Darcy is showing her how it's done. He's been chasing sticks in the sea and rolling in stinky things.


Poor Winnie is afraid to get her toes wet.

Grub Food Van.

We're all having breakfast up at the Grub Food Van this morning.

We're sitting in the large courtyard at the front.
Hello Winnie, you'll get some of my bacon in a minute.
"Oooh, lovely."


You too, Mr Darcy. Just wait.
"OK Dad..... waiting......"

Not bored while I'm at work

Laura and I are both on late shift and we were worried the kiddies might be bored while we're at work.
By the look of the toys scattered around the house, I think they kept themselves entertained.


Winnie, put your toys away ! It's time for bed now.


"No way Dad. I'm having such fun playing with all Darcy's toys."


Hello Mr Darcy. It's good of you to share your toys with Winnie.
"No problemo, Dad."


"Come on Winnie, let's race around the house again !"
No ! My floorboards !

Winnie and Darcy relaxing in the park.

This is our second big walk today.
Now we're just resting in the shade. It's a hot day here in Melbourne.

Hello Winnie.
"Hello Dad. I like it here in this park."
