Good times....

Sigh....the end of the year is nearly here and the days are getting longer, the weather warmer, and holidays and feasts are approaching!

Thanks to Paisley Jade, it's good to remember the special moments in our lives, so here's what's been happening in the world of the Canons.

Muffy the cat has come to live with us and while her and Tim have an abvious love/hate relationship (Muffy loves Tim, he hates her with a passion), I love this cat.

She is a miracle cat who once disappeared from home for 4 months and then miraculously returned a bit bedraggled, but in one peice! She just loves people and loves worship music.

Whenever I give a guitar lesson she comes inside and sits right at my feet. She's about 12 years old, so I'm cherishing these last couple of years that she'll be around with us.

She also 'sits' on command - yes a very clever cat! Here's a massive pizza I made right from scratch, the dough and everything.

And while this may be an easy task for some people, I always have a sense of "I can achieve anything" if I manage to cook something that actually tastes and looks good!

Thanks Australian Masterchef for the inspiration!

"La Belle Epoque" - was the name of a fashion show I went to lastnight where a special young friend of mine celebrated the first year of her fashion course along with her fellow students.

Her label name is Charmae and I must say she is one talented young lady with an obvious flare for fashion. Here she is posing in one of the outfits she made for her course this year.

I can't wait to see what she will be making next year! Go Charlotte!!

We are slowly renovating our little house, and while it can be hard work, the fun part is choosing vinyl and carpet for some of the rooms we have done.

Unfortunately after a trip to the dentist for husband, it might be 'goodbye carpet - hello root canal' for now.

But it's still fun to look at different designs and get a good feel of what we are after. I may just paint all our cork floors and chuck some funky rugs down until we can afford some carpet.

And lastly it's been great to see husband grow in his teacher role. It hasn't been an easy year with the kids, having had a few with huge behavioural needs (one ran around naked in the bathroom, another licked a used condom he found, and another brought a mashetti to school!)

But he really loves his job and secretly loves the 'drama' too I think.

Well done my love for all your hard work this year. I know that the kids you teach love you to smithereens and are better in life because of you! As you can see in this picture he is in need of a haircut! The ringlets are even making a comeback!

And of course while he is working hard in his classroom, I take cheesy photos and run around making funny noises, which he just politely ignores, but that's okay.
I'm not good in confined spaces for too long.
Have a blessed Christmas and New Years everyone. I'm sure we'll see some of you for a summer bbq or beach picnic soon! Yay!
