Op shopping and puppies

 Meet the latest additions to our not so small family, this is Jedda and Murphy. After losing our beloved Bull earlier in the year we had not felt the time was right to get another dog, but as you can see that has all changed, and because we don't do things by halves we got 2 - brother and sister. So far they are very good, not toilet trained yet but getting there and the thing I am most happy about - so far they are very tolerant of not so gentle small children, fingers crossed it stays that way.

 Some very successful shopping at the local lifeline this week. I picked up this cupboard thing - no it does not match anything else we own but I really liked it and for $10 how could I say no. i am sure it will be put to good use.
 My next op shop bargain - this wardrobe, destined to contain the new babies things, it needs a bit of work but the bones are good and I just love the shape and again $20 how could I let it go? Other bargains obtained this week are a commercial grill/cooker - just perfect for a large family - i can't help but picture the amazing hamburgers we will be cooking on this. Also although i have no idea if it works or how to use it - a knitting machine, I will have to try and download an instruction manual, it looks very confusing with lots and lots of little pieces. it may sit here gather dust for a while before I muster the courage to try and work it out but at $8 again how could I go past it.
And finally - do you think the dogs were a big hit, they are very much loved already, a great addition to our bunch!
