Katherine was inspired by Memoirs of a Geisha, but I am not sure which part she dressed up as!
I dressed up as Stalone in Cliffhanger, and I have no pic of myself yet. This picture was taken after I borrowed Wilma Flintstone's wig!

I shall chase you away you little critter...
Ooh, you are supposed to run or fight! Don't you look cute at me Oscar!
This freaks me out, I better run home fast and go hide behind Walter....

It is not a Subaru Liberty like we wanted... but we like this Lancer Wagon. Blends in nicely with our backyard...
One thing that is nice is that it just conforms to the following government legislation:
If a vehicle has travelled less than 120,000 kms and is less than 7 years old, the trader must give a written warranty. The warranty period is 3 months or 3,000 kilometres, whichever comes first. Certain vehicles such as four wheel drive vehicles, commercial vehicles and motor cycles are not...
This means we can be assured of a great vehicle! It came from the Mitsubishi Dealers in Launceston... and thus means no unexpected costs for us hopefully. A very sensible but a tad boring choise. Katherine kicked the tyres, checked the kayak gear in the back...
And then took it to work...
Next we need to get our roof rack modified... No kayaking till we get a roof rack on there...

Poor Pinny has blown a head gasket... At 293000 kilometers we are afraid it is time for a replacement... Anyone like to make us an (un)reasonable offer? Just needs a good gentle home...
Currently looking at this lovely Landrover... Should be econimical to run with its little 4 cylinder petrol engine... We've got it for a week to test drive! Cool! Very suauve!

And as much food as she can fit in her huge belly....
The best kitty litter too....
Toilet training is just not happening. The toilet litter with hole in it is just not deemed acceptable... We are all getting a little upset with it all! Kitty litter on your toes in bed...

Look how tall our couch is! Maybe the foam will compress a little eventually.

Afullah's toilet training is not going too well. She took a week or two to even consider this thing a kitty-litter. She did not know where to poo/pee. Normally she would go outside for an hour and come home to use the kitty-litter, that is how much she liked her old kitty litter. Now.... Well, look at it. We don't like it.... and no way is this going to sit on our one and only house toilet!! She doesnt like it either. First she's got to learn to use it 'efficiently' without making a mess! This is going to be a challenge for all of us over the next few months! Merry Christmas, ho ho ho.

This picture was taken on the beach a few days ago when we were out collecting pebbles for our garden. This image has been geotagged in Picasa. Not sure if that carries across to the blog! It is a lovely spot to walk for miles and miles on a pebbly/sandy beach, and see no one. We bring sturdy bags and fill two each with pebbles for our garden. We need to do this regularly as 4 bags does not go far in landscaping!

Step 1 was for Afullah to use the new litter 'tray' from Litter Kwitter, and then to use it in the new location... It took a couple of days.
Afullah is onto step two now for potty training. The magic tray which replaced her litter, is now sitting on top of the toilet! It makes toileting hard for us as we only have one loo! We almost put the old kitty litter box in our bedroom for us!

Yes, my grandfather was Prof. Spanish at Amsterdam, his son, my uncle, is Prof. in Economics/Econometrics, and now his daughter, my cousin Mirjam, recently became Professor at the University of Amsterdam in Entrepreneurship and Organizations! I was there with mum to celebrate it. Click on the photo below to see the photo album.
