holiday/new stuff

I am still keeping my art school options open but it doesn't look financially possible at present.  I have picked up a bit of work though and been made redundant from my old job unfortunately (on my birthday no less!) so I've kinda lost what I gained.  Oh well...

Anyhow, here are a few more pictures from holiday,

 The Arrow river is only a very short distance from where we were staying with Grandma.  There is a very beautiful walk/bike track on both sides of the river here with a footbridge at each end of the part we use.

This makes it a great place to walk grandma's dog Poppy.

Who likes water...
and running...
And looking at other dogs.

We did this walk almost every evening and sometimes in the morning too - although the boys mostly took Poppy at this hour.  William also did a lot of bike riding on these paths.  Swimming is not an option really as the water is absolutely freezing cold.

You take a pretty good photo, Viv. Love the very South Island looking ones in the last post. Hope you get to do some art study one way or another.

Sorry to hear that your art school plans are on hold and your work situation is difficult.

And I agree with Ms Lottie, great pictures :)

It could be worse I suppose. I'll try again for next year. Who knows...hubby might have a full time job by then :) I hope so anyhow.
