My new job that I got yesterday (and was meant to start at the end of next week) just texted me to see if I can work today! I said yes but I am now panicking a little.

Strange your puppy is so sweet! I've always wanted a husky type dog but they're a little big for me!

Nice! What kind of job is it?

And thanks! He's pretty well behaved for a puppy, we always get compliments, but he still has his days where he just doesn't want to listen for anything. :P

Ok so here are my two puppies :)
First is honey, she is the sweetest little thing and a super jumper lol. I think she is a staffy cross aussie cattle dog with a bit of mastiff. Lol here she is as a puppy, definatley the cutest puppy I have ever seen lol, excuse the goose in the background.


And here she is all grown up this morning, still just as cute.


Then there is my little man Champ, he is definatley not the smartest of dogs, Honey has all the brains and Champ got all the muscle lol. Here is the puppy shot!


And here is the grown up shot, I think he is a dane cross mastiff. (dont mind the newly destroyed bed in the background :/ )


Then here is nyx again, just cos :)

Nyx's winter coat is comming out and I think she is going black! She has black spotches on her rump and on her withers, interesting.

It's just at a cafe. I don't particularly want to work today, but I'm just thinking of it as my "new rug day" because I really need to buy a new rug!

Nyx - Honey was the sweetest little puppy!

I envy all those people with bay horses. Bay used to be my favourite colour, and you would think then I would end up with a bay, considering how common they are. But no, I have a chestnut. Nyx is lovely.

Lol, the more you work the faster you'll be able to get a new rug!

That's what I tell myself when I don't want to work. :P Minus the new rug part, just that I'll get money faster. XD

In the past few weeks I've come to re-evaluate my future and all my plans that I used to want to do, well I just don't want them anymore. I was going to go into sort of postgraduate research doing Honours but now, doing Honours, I realise while I like the subject enough, I don't want to do it forever. I don't want a career in it. I don't want to spend years researching.

So now I am thinking of becoming a high school teacher. Its something I always wanted to do but would had to restructure my degree, so I thought I'd try the research route I'll have to do some further study but at least at the end I'll have an actual "job", and I love teaching and kids so hopefully it will work out.

Anyway this job is a step in that direction so I can actually fund my study next year, at least until I get to the stage where I can get some government support again. And then I can move Rosie to the other agistment place which is slightly more expensive but much safer. So hopefully everything will work out!

Aren't you studying too Nyx?

Imagine winning the lotto... that would be so cool. I think I'd just invest in real estate or something and then become an author.

Yeh im finishing off my electortechnoligy trade course and I can't decide weather I want to do my diploma in horse industry or equine nursing next year. Im leaning towards equine nursing as it has good job prospects. But I need to find a way to study online and still work full time, I think tamworth offer an online course.

I was going to go to uni but I think ill knock over some tafe courses first, I wanna do a horse breeding course aswell. Its all so exciting but very difficult to choose a right path.

If I won the lotto I would definatley invest in a few properties and then I would always have an income. And have my own Quarab stud :)

My partner won a heap on his birthday week so I bought a lotto ticket for my birthday week next week >:]
