RIP Our Dear Holly Cat 30.06.1996 - 15.12.2011

This morning we had our sweet Himalayan cat, Holly put to sleep. After fifteen and a half years her heart had decided that it was too tired to go on. We feel so sad and have such heavy hearts at present but are remembering what a beautiful natured cat she was. In the early days of her life she was a little neurotic and used to go and hide in the drains. She would travel through the drain system in Bundaberg and we would find her up to a kilometre from home! She also wasn't very fond of men and would take off when they arrived. I think she used up her nine lives in those early days and from then on, Holly decided that the home life was for her. She decided to be lazy like our Labrador Zoe and lie around in the backyard and wait for food and cuddles. She has lived out her days in a lovely enclosed yard in Brisbane and enjoyed much love and cuddles from us all.
Bye beautiful Holly, you were very much loved.

Holidays Are Here ...

for the kids anyway. The end of the school year went well. Nick had a good report and Penny a good teacher interview. They have great teachers for next year.
Penny's dancing concert was lovely. The costumes were so pretty and she was so excited to get a trophy. It was a huge day (2 concerts) and we didn't get home until 11pm! My parents came up from Adelaide for her concert which she was very pleased about.

We visited Santa on Friday and the children made their requests known.
Craig has not been home very much lately but the countdown until Christmas holidays is on. We attended my work Christmas party on Saturday night. It was held at a Greek restaurant at South Bank which was very yummy and good fun.
I am still working through the holidays (except between Christmas and New Year) and so the kids are attending vacation care at their school. They are enjoying it so far with a Starwars and sculpture day. Tomorrow they are catching the train to the movies and having lunch at McDonald's.
Have a good week.
