My Place and Yours-Behind The Camera

My Place and Yours has found a new home at Hello Owl  and Danielle has probably thought of the hardest theme of all-for me anyway. I HATE photos of myself!!! Probably no different than half the population on earth really . Anyway I decided to get in the spirit of things and aimed the camera at myself and happy snapped away. This is the only one I could show you, I promise the rest were a disaster!
 
Well thats the hard part over...............! In my house I have-a husband, one child if sixteen is still a child ( three other children have grown up and moved away) 2 cats, soon to be 3, 2 dogs, one of which sleeps with us everynight (but she's only little!!), 3 axolotyls, 3 goldfish, a budgie, 4 chooks and my newly acquired yesterday, bantam rooster. I live about 5 minutes away from a small country town, don't like cities, hate the snow and I'm only 3 hours drive from Mt Kosciousko. I work part time at a tolerable but not wonderful job, Sew/create as much as I can and do housework when I have to. I have never met face to face one of my best friends but can talk to her for hours at a time on the phone (which we do often) My favourite shops are Op Shops and Second hand shops, I am a self confessed hoarder/Collector. My husband who doesn't believe in Computers thinks I spend too much time on the Computer but then he hasn't got a Blog and doesn't realise how much time you have to put in visiting all the other amazing bloggers out there!!!!  And that was the easy part.

Oooh I had an axolotl for years ~ he was about 18 when he died. I loved him so.

What an amazing blue...now if I could get my husband not to believe in computers the house would be far less cluttered lol although i would never give them up i'd miss my bloggy friends. rx

Oooh - your place sounds wonderful with all your animals. I adore bantums You have to have at least one little dog that sleeps with you. Mine sleeps beside my bed - except when my husband is away and then he's allowed in with me.

Hi Jackie, it's lovely getting to know you :) i'm amazed how much we share in common..hoarding/collecting love of cats/chooks/crafting and blogging of course...never enough hours in the day, damn shame :(
btw i also have four grown kids & a part-time job.
we also share a love of country living..our 2 acre plot is only five mins from the nearest town & less than 2hrs from Melb..i reckon that's just about perfect!

The eyes most certainly have it - they're gorgeous. Love your post and I agree that we should stay 39 forever ;) Thank YOU so much for visiting Jackie. xo
