Firstly a birthday wish to my youngest, Jesse turned 24 on Thursday, we had a great chat via skype and I got to talk to his lovely girlfriend Michelle who he met not long after I left for Iceland...hopefully she will be able to visit here with him at Christmas and we get to meet in the flesh.
This is a gorgeous photo of Jesse and Michelle at the Premiere of Little Sparrows in Perth (not often I get to see Jesse in a suit). source
She is staying with me for the weekend to see if we are a good match together....so far it is looking good. Perla is a black Labrador, has a very gentle nature, is friendly, well mannered and quiet...a good companion. Her family are moving to the big smoke, Reykjavik, (which is as big as you get in Iceland, only about one eighth of the population of Perth, West Aust) they will be renting a house and sadly unable to take her with them and have asked me if I would like her. She has grown up with babies and children, so will be fine when I get to babysit Henry (hint, hint Olga & Ross) and she gets on well with Nina (her sister, different litter), they play boisterously but nice and friendly together.
you can definitely see the family resemblance in her little sister Nina
Perla and I went for a walk to the beach yesterday, it was such a beautiful sunny day with just a few clouds here and there.
Perla had a good run fetching a bit of driftwood as we walked along the shore.
