THE ADVENTURES OF FRITZ THE WONDER WELSHIE AND STARING FLAT ERIC IN A MINIATURE WONDERLAND! Meet Fritz, he's my handsome Welsh terrier. I believe he may be the cutest dog on earth however he has the worst attitude known to the K9 species! For that reason I cannot dedicate the whole blog to him, instead I include my collection of trinkets that warm my heart.

My favourite book of all time till this very day is Monty the runaway mouse. It's an amazing story from the Australian born Esta de Fossard first published back in 1976. The tale of Monty searching to be loved really warmed my heart and together with the awesome photography of Haworth Bartram it's a book I will never forget. I lost my original copy from my childhood and was lucky enough to receive it back as a birthday gift a few years ago from Kylie. Since then I've been chasing up some more from the series. I have 3 now but want the whole set.

The titles include :
DINAH the dog with a difference
CATKIN the curious kitten
MONTY the runaway mouse
FRISK the unfriendly foal
HUFF the grumbling pigeon
DANIEL the reluctant duck
MONTY MOUSE looks for adventure
SAMSON the sheepdog
DARBY the donkey

In 1981 when I was 6, the Nitendo Game/Watch entered my life. On my family trips to Queensland Mum & Dad would buy my Bro and I one each however my Dad got addicted to the "Parachute" one and so they had to buy us more to keep us happy. The first two we got where "Parachute" & "Mickey Mouse", we loved them and played non stop. They were the single screen ones. I was totally blown away when the double screen was released, we got "Oil Panic", "Donkey Kong", "Donkey Kong 2" and my personal favourite "Mickey & Donald".


Thanks to my mate Kylie who chucked a tag my way, I am left feeling a little under pressure for this challenge. What can a girl from the Tasmanian suburbs offer that could compete with the wonders of the world?

I offer you some scenic shots of the background of where I live and walk my dogs. The sunset shot is a view of what I see when I step out of the front door. With Mt. Wellington as my backdrop I often take the dogs for a swim in the summer around the Derwent river and sometimes pick up little trinkets I find along the waters edge.

I grew up down here and although I find this little island a bit eerie it is nice to come home to after a few years away. It's a good base to have, go explore the world and come back to fresh air, clean water and fantastic serenity! As much as I would like to tag to another, sadly I don't know any other person with a blog! I will link you back to "put your flair on" the original creator of this challenge.

I purchased these Astro boy items at a collectors fair in the early ninties. They are completely useless and unnecessary to own but I think they are cute.

The first one above is a divice to store your tie. You roll it around a rod and pop it in the case to provent dust gathering, I guess. The other gem seen here on the right is a can of facial wipes. Granted these do come in handy but I won't open this special one.


My tiny little bible has seen better days, I left it in my pocket and it went into the washing machine.

I picked it up at a $2 shop in Sydney, one never knows when you need the comfort of a verse, however there is no possible way I can read the tiny print. I can refect on the pictures though!

A lone gunman serves to protect the soup and biscuits of Pussy La La.


Today while exploring the bottom of my wardrobe I stumbled across Dylan suffocating in an old sock. I did have a Brandon too but he was nowhere to be seen.

On closer inspection I noticed just how metro sexual my Dylan doll was. Love his pale pink lipstick.

The Socceroos made history with their first ever goal and win in the world cup last Monday with a stunning comeback in the last 6 minutes of the game.
I loved the qualifying game that won them a place in the cup against Uruguay with the dramatic penalty shootout, but their first game in Germany was unbelievable! It actually brought a tear to my eye, but don't tell anyone.

See the highlights here

Sydney my most loyal fury friend seen here having a nap, is the greatest pal to me in the house. He follows me everywhere and sleeps on the end of my bed. He's 12 now and slowing down in his old age. He has never been half the trouble Fritz is, I love him to death, even though he has the breath of a thousand camels.
