Candid Camera:)

Beryl reckons you should always have a smile on your face because you never know when someone is going to be taking your photo!!  Check out this photo of me and Beryl.
 

She was highly delighted because she'd not long before gone for a run with the hounds at the last GAP walk.  Admittedly she was at the back and she didn't run for very long but I'm sure she'll get more confident after having taken this initial step.  So why do I look like the world has come to an end, lol?

I'm very sorry I haven't been visiting and commenting on blogs in the past week or so but I'm really busy working (including the weekend!) and my nights are being spent getting my new Wordpress Blog ready.  Everything has gone fairly smoothly, it's up and running with most of this blog imported but it took me weeks to decide on a theme, then I changed it and I keep getting sidetracked when I'm looking for things to add.  It's extremely engrossing and I'm learning heaps but the more I learn the more I need to know!  So I'll probably do one more post here and then we're going to our new home:)

And to celebrate both our new home and our 1 year Blogiversary, which is on 18th July, we're going to have a competition with a PRIZE!  The details will be announced on our new blog as kind of an incentive for everyone to come and find us:) 

Happy 4th of July to everyone in the USA!  I guess you're all having a long weekend?  Hope it's not too hot and you're all doing something fun with the kids.

Right, I'm going to cuddle with the kids for a while and then have an early night for a change.  Bye for now.

I think these are the best photos...I'm not a big fan of 'perfect', staged shots...
I've been pretty busy, too, so I'm just catching up with my blog reading. Somehow, the summer seems to mess all of us up :)

Too funny! I never worry too much about it, since there's no way I could compete in the looks department with the boys anyway. :)

Looks like Beryl is smiling enough for both of you.

Besides, knowing that other folks sometimes get caught in a photograph without their best toothpaste smile makes me feel a little bit better about my own pix. Yep, sad but true.

Can't wait to see the new blog. Good luck with the last minute details.

My word you looked so serious:)

Glad you are getting your other blog sorted. Looking forward to coming over to that one.

I like the photo! I think it is very sweet. :) Looking forward to visiting you at your new site. How do you move your blogger stuff over? :) I have been using wordpress for a little while now and have yet to take the time to learn all the ins and outs. :)

Don't you just hate getting upstaged by your hounds in photo shoots? Happens to me all the time!

I can't wait to see your new blog! It took me forever to get mine set up, too! Just don't forget to import that Google Friend Connect widget!

Looking forward to your new blog! Happy 4th!

last post here? ahhh. i'm feeling nostalgic already. thanks for your email btw. sorry i didn't reply but had a wisdom tooth extraction and am feeling strangely crook.

i might indeed swop for WP one day but so many things happening at the moment that i'm lucky to find time to post and comment! good luck with "moving house" :). i look forward to checking it out soon.

p.s. spontaneous shots are the best!

My boys always look better than me in photos.. that's why I crop me out LOL. Glad Beryl is getting her confidence back!

I'm glad your blog move is going smoothly. Hang in there. I learned a lot when I moved too. It was challenging, but fun. I'll be watching for details on your Blogiversary. Definitely worthy of a big celebration. :)

I have been having such a hard time leaving comments on some of the blogs-yours is one that takes so long to scroll through and leave a comment.

The smile is catching!

I don't know how many of those photos I've been caught in thinking my husband is taking a picture of JUST the dogs and there I am with the big frown on my face trying to stay out of the picture!! BOL!!

Hope all goes well with WordPress and your new blog. We will be looking forward to you then.
