I was much too preoccupied with a little toddler and an equally active four month old puppy who both kept me amused much of the time.
I have come home with cuts all over my hands and ankles from the razor sharp teeth of Patchy who becomes extremely excited when the girls appear in the morning and when they come home from school. I think Puppy Training School is going to be in her future plans :-) However, she does learn quickly but just knowing exactly the right way to teach her is a bit hit and miss at the moment although I did buy a dog training DVD for the girls but it doesn't cover everything. She is quite adorable but got really hot on that 38C day we had which was perfect weather for a bath. I am not quite sure how puppies cope with the heat of an Outback summer but they do seem to survive.
My daughter had a little free time on Friday so when we were in the shopping precinct I thought I would take a couple of photos to show how close the mine is to where the shops are as I have mentioned in previous posts that the city was built right next to the mine which wouldn't be allowed these days.
There are three chimney stacks that are visible from most parts of the city and this is the tallest one which stands out behind a row of shops in the centre of the shopping area.
I spent a lot of time with this little fellow who loved getting into his big sisters' room while they were at school and playing with their little bits and pieces.

On Monday it was really hot and the 38C temperature was a bit of a shock after the cool weather we had been having at home before I left. Patchy, the little puppy, was really hot so the plan was to give her a bath once the girls were home from school. I think she overheard the plan as she didn't look too happy.
