Another long blogging break , truth is i have been really busy with work and pretty tired so have just spent minimal time on the computer as possible. I think i need a holiday but the the thought of going back to such a backlog of work after two weeks holidays just puts me off, specially as I'm just catching up.

No news of Fletcher, although we did have a false alarm with a dog answering his description brought into a pound the other side of Melbourne. A whippy friend who happened to live about 100 m from that pound went to investigate and just as he about to ring and say 'i think its him' the owners turned up :( good for them tho ......

I also had my Birthday......another reason i was away.... had something on just every night that week, lots of fun but was exhausted by the end of it or maybe its turning the dreaded 50 that had something to do with it....I got very spoilt by work, friends and family and its sort of been the birthday that keeps going on and on. I think its done and dusted now!!
I shall leave you with some lovely photos of the some of the lovely art work at the Frankston foreshore
I just loved these sculptures by Ann Ross called Lost and Found.

Love the way the sand fills and washes over them , changing them daily i would say.

And i didn't strategically place the leaves , nature engineered that one...))











And these beauiful mosaics by Loiuse Lavarack called Night Line...






And thank you all too for all your lovely comments too, they mean a lot......i really do appreciate them.... jenxo

Belated birthday wishes. Like the photos of Frankston Art. I haven't been down there for a while. I drive past Frankston on the way to the Peninsula. It never seems to be my destination.

just left you a message ... got a funny notice about service interruptus or something

here is a second try: hoping your birthday month is fun fun fun, all that celebrating can be exhausting ... remember it's only a number ;)

Belated happy birthday Jenn! Sounds like you had a lovely time. I love the photo's you took at Frankston and smiled at the one of your feet near the mosaic as I have walked over it many a time :).
Nice to think of you being so near where I live.
