Peace and concentration

I am still getting used to the new way of loading photos in blogger.  This looks really good if you click on the photo to enlarge it.

I'm not sure if I have shown you this photo or not - the watelilies are all out again and they look so lovely, I never tire of seeing them
Here is Jock concentrating really hard waiting fortheball to be thrown for him
and here he is in the lap of luxury.  He has finally worn me down and is now allowed to sleep on this chair upstairs in the office.  He has been known to stand outside the door when we are both downstairs, barking to be let into the office!

I am distinctly relieved today.  I had a panic visit to the opthalmologist yesterday as my optometrist thought my right (good) eye had started to bleed.  Thank goodness, when all thescans and tests were done, the verdict was a false alarm, nothing has changed - brilliant!  I can only see broken images with my left eye so my right eye is very precious to me.  Please everyone, keep checking your macular to make sure you don't have a problem.
I am for once upstairs typing this while bill watches the State of Origin football - while I am glad to know that Queensland is winning, I can't be bothered wasting my time watching football, but I wanted to do some work on the computer.  This is turning into a huge rout, much to Bill's delight.  I'm done, and I am off downstairs to listen to music.


  1. I have macular degeneration too, but so far it hasn't caused much damage and seems to be in a holding pattern. Each check-up makes me very nervous.

  2. Glad to hear that it was a false alarm re your eye. The photos are so lovely and serene. Jock has really grown, a very handsome boy.

  3. I will have to get used to loading photos on this new laptop - it seems quite a bit different from the old process. Glad your eye scare was unfounded - our sight is so precious. Lovely pics Robin, especially the water lilies and Jock.

  4. Great photos again Robin, love Jock sleeping on 'his chair'. He reminds me of one very special working dog we had. We have lovely pink waterlillies on a small lagoon outside our local town [Miles].
    Glad the eye scare was just that, do take care.
    I did sit and watch the football, soooooo excited, UP THE MAROONS!!!!
    I think we should make today Queensland Day!!!!!

  5. Robyn, the photos are fabulous.
    I too watched State of Origin and was thrilled with the result.
    Thanks again for the gorgeous pics.
