Hi All,
Had a busy week. Couple of doctors appointments just a few routine check-ups, happily all is well. I was able to squeeze in a game or two of bowls.
Ive also been Cat Sitting Rosie-Jane for the last week whilst my daughter Donna and her family have been in Fiji. My dog Clayton wasnt too happy when he had to share my attention with Rosie and on the odd occasion Rosco (Donna's dog). Rosie and Rosco has now gone home.
I was walking through the laundry the other morning, and was greeted by the monster "Bogong Moth" I just nicked the edge of him with my foot whilst running for my camera.
A Couple of days later I recieved a most welcome phone call from my Grand Daughter Alyce anouncing that Serayha and her self were comming up to stay for a few days. Ive been waited on hand and foot including a beauty treatment. They havent let me do a thing, not even cooked or clean up. Ive had fun and lots of laughter. I enjoyed their company immensely, I was sad to see them go. .
Double click on photo's too enlarge .

I'll bet Clayton likes to go walking with you.
And I'm really glad those 'guests' pampered you.

Would you consider 'loaning' me that "Bogong Moth" picture for my November Bug post?

What lovely photos. Your grandaughters are beautiful, and the animals are all very cute. The moth is stunning ... haven't seen one of those for years. The spots on their wings look like eyes ... creepy.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
Take care, Meow

Lucky you having your grand-daughters

when they were younger. Glad they enjoy family photos too. Take care, my friend,
Love, Merle.

I like to have lots of visitors but like you say it's terrible when they leave, it's like having something cut off. The pics are nice to see.

Hi Mum,

Glad the girls looked after you, and pampered you. I must admit, I missed my Serayha, cuz she normally primps and pampers me !!! They both had a great time visiting, and I heard all about the "blog" they started, I just loved the name !!!

Rosie-Jane looks like she adjusted well, now that is one "pampered" cat, hope she didnt get up to to much mischief...ROFLMAO !!!

Well Claytons not looking any "smaller" and Jim, in answer to your comment .. Clayt's doesnt walk anywhere, he is the most laziest of dogs, he runs and hides when you grab the lead !!!

Had visitors this weekend, being a long weekend in Melbourne for the Cup, so was a little busy, will catch up soon.

All my love

Hi Mum, great news about the check ups... I suppose somebody would have told me eventually. :-)

How did you get the girls to pamper you like that? Christine can't get Alyce to make her own bed... I guess you'll have to pass on the secret when you come down for a visit this weekend.

Cazz, did you say Serayha prims & pampers you????
Is she living back at home now? (Doesn't anybody tell me whats going on these days?????)

Scruff, the blog address is

See you and Gwen on Friday. I Better get some more Brandy. :-)

What a sophisticated name for a cat "Rosie-Jane" very chic ! But it suits her very well. Your moth looks like a grandpa butterfly, where hair color has gone. Our moths here are small grey and ugly and fortunately eaten up by Pookie ! Mr. Clayton looks as if he were a starving dog (lol) !

Was so enthralled with the photo of the moth that did a search around to find out more about it and to see what Bogong actually meant. Seems it means MOTH! Also been enjoying visiting the blogs of some of your commenters.

Hi Jan ~ Thanks for your comments, glad yu enjoyed. The only time I picked a winner, had no bet on the Cup.
Have a wonderful weekend in Melbourne

ever live that down?? Enjoy your trip.
Lots of love, Merle.
