A workmate brought in her 9 week old puppy, that she had just ‘adopted’ last week.  She was pretty cute, and wondered around the office, fell asleep on her chair and explored everyone’s shoes for an hour or so.  This is a phone shot!  She was officially unnamed at time of the visit.

I have started Yoga classes again, after about a 7 month break.  Very handy to have a class just around the corner from work, so I can pop around for 1hr 15 of stretching, breathing and relaxation.  Really enjoying it again..instructor is great :0)

Not sure when I will get the levitation happening like the yoga guru above though!

A new TV show on the Ten network is called Are you smarter than a 5th Grader.  The questions seem like they should be easy, but it is amazing how many I don’t know..!

For example, if you mix together the 3 primary colours, what is the name of the colour you create, starting with ‘T’.  I should have known that.

Any takers?

 Frog 3

How very bizzare..a see-through frog. I saw this briefly on the news this morning and had to look into further.  See here.  These are bred, but interestingly only 1 in 16 end up being see-through!  Nature twisted..
