Say Hello to Quinn.


Quinn was a gift from No. 2 Son

and No. 1 Daughter-in-Law.


After Ginger’s sudden death they

decided to replace her with a new kelpie.

However, Candi either had not been born

or was too young to leave her mother

before my birthday.

Quinn came with a note advising me

that Candi would be ready in a few weeks.

That was five years ago next February.

MGW weaves the Christmas Magic

in our home.

Usually our tree is erected on the

first weekend of December.

However, this year it may be a week early

as we are having a Christmas lunch

or dinner (not sure which)

some time during the first weekend.

Over recent years we have collected

Christmas decorations during our travels.


Our tree is now covered with decorations….


…from Europe, Dubai and our recent

Canada and Alaska adventure.

All of these decorations invoke

memories of our travels.


On December seventh or eighth

No. 1 Son & No. 2 Daughter-in-Law

are New Zealand bound where they will remain

until their baby is born in mid-February.
