Two computers, a sewing machine, some knitting… this is the current state of my desk, as I juggle numerous tasks. (Actually, there’s another laptop – my new one – just behind the old one.)

Now that the uni marking is all done, I’m doing some Christmas sewing and knitting, finalising the sampler for the Australian Romantic Suspense website, catching up with ‘paper’work, finishing setting up the new computers, and working on copyedits for Dead Heat.

There will be a proper blog post sometime soon… and maybe even a new cover to share 🙂

But in the meantime, I know my regular readers are wondering how our newest family member is settling in. I think the following photos will answer that question quite eloquently:

Skye, our 9 month-old Border Collie, with her toys

Gordon and Skye

Things Skye likes about this place:

  1. When it’s raining, she gets to sleep in the Really Big Kennel!
  2. The humans are trainable, especially when it comes to playing and snuggling!
  3. When she chews a toy to bits, a human sometimes gives her a new toy!
  4. The humans have treats in their pockets sometimes!
  5. It’s such fun to pull the stuffing out of the doggy cushions; a human usually comes along and puts it back, then she can pull it out again! It’s a great game!
  6. Carrots! Crunchy, munchy bits of raw carrot!
Yep, I’d say she’s settled in fine…

  1. Hi Skye, (and human help — very tidy desk).

    I’ve been asked to place this here.

    Hi! I’d like to share my favourite treat.
    You may need a human to do the cooking
    (They won’t eat much).

    1/2 lb of liver (or more – good).
    1 cup of flour (self raising is best – you get more).
    1/2 cup of rolled oats.
    1 table spoon of Golden syrup
    2 eggs.

    Mince or finely chop the liver (try to eat any tit bits).
    Lightly (hand) mix dry ingredient.
    Lightly (hand) beat wet ingredient.
    Add wet ingredient to the dry ingredient
    hand (lightly) mix through.
    (ignore any human ‘disgusting’ complaints and offer to lick hands)
    Place on a shallow greased baking tray.
    Bake at 320 degrees (F)
    (allow mixture to pull away from the tray)
    Cool to touch
    Cut into bite-sized squares.
    Store in fridge (vegi crisper works well)
    Eat some while still warm (at least 20).
    The mixture makes enough for 3 hours
    (my humans seem to think there is enough for two weeks – they don’t know sip)

    – Enjoy, Lady

  2. Hello, Skye! Looks like you’ve found the best place to be for Christmas and all the Christmases to come! 🙂

    Bron, so glad to hear she’s settling in well – how old is she? Was she a rescue?

    Love the view out your window! 😀

  3. Hi, Lady! A belated thanks for the recipe. Skye thinks it sounds especially yummy, and is offering to help make some 🙂

    Kylie, she’s been getting so much attention (and so many new toys) she thinks it’s Christmas every day!
