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.

This one is for you Kywee. Remember when I went mad years back drawing for 8 hours a day till me eyes fried?


Yo Slam, I don't know what this means but as you appreciate my madness I posted it for ya. I had a quick play on a drawing program I downloaded for free that is very basic and came up with this gem. Looking at the final result it frightened me. However, on closer inspection I see a Justin Timberlake road kill. Like as if he was steamrolled by a giant log and he is surrounded by a police chalk line. And why did I name him Steven? What do you see? Do I need help?

When I first got a mobile phone with a camera attached back in 2002, I went nuts for a few months and took pictures of anything and everything. I found them on a disc today and made a little collage of just some of them. Please enjoy.

Ok, so now my Socceroos fever is over for another 4 years it's back to the best kind of football in the world, Australian rules. To show my dedication for this unique sport I purchased 3 action figures of some well known fellas of the game. They only released 3000 of each and I snapped up these guys pretty quick as not to miss out! I will admit they are as ugly as sin but they were a must have to satisfy my collecting need. My favourite is of course Jason Akermanis of the Brisbane Lions.

I got a Nintendo DS Lite last week and haven't been able to put it down after forming a new addiction to the game Nintendogs. It's quite life like and I enjoy very much picking up his number 2's when taking him for a walk on the street. So meet Sooty, my little mate.


Check out this old school backyard weapon! I got this Slingshot from my Nan's brothers house when I was knee high to a grasshopper but my Mum hid it from me for years because my brother and I would fight over it. Another reason was they are actually illegal but we didn't care, it was just so cool to us.
Nan's bro was a pretty cool guy, he collected most excellent things from around the world while in the Navy. He had a massive old house full of amazing things he had collected all his life. I think I got my collecting bug from him. He was always making little things too and I am glad I could hold on to one of them like this.

Just like his Mum, Fritz is always on the look out for cool little things in his travels and today on his daily walk he found this Michelin Man in the wet tall grass. I've always wanted one of those tiny fat men of me own. Good boy Fritzie!


I'm trying to pace myself with a one a day limit to eating the kinder, but allowing my brother to eat one just to get the toy out works fine too. So today I got a pencil top and one of those little things you rattle, think you call it a clacker!


Yet another bonus from Astrid the legend treat giver, a football stadium full of chocolates.

Ok, I ripped into one already and got this cool little Deutschland soccer jersey key chain. Being such a big fan of mini items, this little token has flared up my addiction again. I need help, I may go bust into the rest of them like I did for the Kinder advent calendar. Man, I ate 24 of those things in 2 days to get the treats out!


Today I received a treat pack from Astrid. Included in this giant box of quality goods was an excellent bonus, this patriotic World Cup Kinder Surprise egg full of babies! I formed an addiction to the kinder eggs while over in Germany and collected 43,000 (slight exaggeration) in the year I spent there. Having not enough room in my case to bring them back to Oz, Astrid sold them all on ebay for 1 euro!
I was wild to the touch but I'm glad she did, she cured my addiction. I will show you each day what I get if they are any good!
