So many panda cubs!

I saw this picture in the latest National Geographic Magazine in an article on pandas and I was totally bowled over by how cute the cubs look. The picture was not on the Nat Geo website but I managed to find it here instead. I think pandas must be the cutest real bears in the whole world!

Shortest day of the year

A longer day tomorrow Posted by Picasa

We have reached the point in the year where the days stop becoming shorter and start increasing again. Nothing really much in effect since tomorrow is just going to be 1 second longer. Just an interesting fact to know :)

Bobbi bunny was not feeling too happy this morning. She did not run around enthusiastically when she saw me come out of the room as she usually does. In fact, she didn't even want to eat her food and vegies and her ears were cold. That was not a good sign given that bunnies hardly ever refuse food (yesterday she even crashed her foot on the upper platform in a hurry to get to her food, like any other bunny was rushing with her for it...:S ). I was quite worried the whole morning at work and had to go home to check on her at lunchtime to make sure she was ok. She was :) She had eaten her vegies and when I gave her more, she munched them all quite happily. We also shared an apple. Phew! I hope she feels better inside already.

Soccer mania

Just read this funny article in the news about what people can come up with to try and get tickets to watch the World Cup.

This morning we watched the Brazil vs Australia match on TV at 2-4am in the comfort of our bed, covered in quilts right up to my chin. There were 10,000 people out in Federation Square braving the cold (it was 9 degrees, not as bad as the forecasted 6 degrees but still bad anyway) to watch the match on the big screens. Australia lost anyway but they had so many chances to score something.

Together time :)

Play time with Bobbi was so fun just now! :) She was running around on the floor and I just sat down and watched her. She likes to have people watch her while she is out - she gets all excited and will keep dashing around and binkying. Anyway, when she saw me there, she came over, sniffed and prodded at me and then proceeded to snuggle up next to me! SO CUTE! The photo was taken by me and since I couldn't be moving around too much, this is from the top view where you can see her lying right there next to my lap.

Bobbi & me :D (that is my lap in the blue fleece) Posted by Picasa

Was in the midst of preparing dinner today when I spotted a pair of siamese vege twins...

Another new spot

I'll sit anywhere I like Posted by Picasa

Bobbi bunny found another spot to flop on today. It makes my day seeing her just randomly sitting anywhere on the floor. It's even more fun if you sit on the floor as well. She will come around and poke, prod and sniff at you :)

It's getting so cold these days that I sometimes wear socks around the house as well. Thought these would make a funny pic :)

Getting all comfy

Just lying around Posted by Picasa

Bobbi bunny is getting quite comfortable around the house now as evidenced by the fact that she can just plop right down in the middle of the house and stretch out :) Thought bunnies usually lie against a wall or door for security but now she does not need that. It is quite funny to watch!

Yes that is a tiny stack of post-its at the bottom....:S Hehehe!

Thanks to everyone for their good wishes and presents! :)

A cold and foggy morning

Woke up this morning to 4 degrees and a lot of fog. It is still foggy now - it would usually have cleared up by mid-morning. It was quite funny seeing everyone standing at the traffic lights with puffs of smoke emitting from their breath. :D

A beautiful dog

We saw a beautiful huge white dog today just out of a dog wash. I didn't manage to get a pic but I have just found out that it was a Samoyed. OOOHH!! They are really fantastic to look at! And as usual - I wish I had one too! :D See a pic of one similar here.

It's my birthday!

Hit the big 30 milestone today. 30 does seem like a rather large number :S

Went out for brunch with Darlink, Charli and Johnny at the Red Tongue cafe on Brunswick Street. The food was yummy but took ages to arrive. Well, but we weren't in a hurry to go anywhere so that was fine. It's great to be able to just sit around and relax on a Sunday morning.

Here are some greetings that I have received for my birthday.

A pre-birthday lunch

Had lunch today with colleagues to celebrate my birthday (coming up on Sunday!). Well the fact that the manager for our team would organise a lunch for my birthday is quite enough to make me happy :) A year ago, I was feeling quite out of place at work and despite it taking me a long time to fit in somewhat, it does look like I haven't done too badly :D

Officially winter

It is officially winter from today! Not like it hasn't already felt like it for a while actually. Heard on radio that this will be a cold and dry winter...well anyway, I have new boots to tide me through it!
