New Addition - Aimee

Posted by Andrew Bevan | Posted in | Posted on 7:43 AM

Aimee (meaning: Beloved) is the recent addition to the Bevan Family.

Breed: Daschund (Dad) cross Jack Russel (Mom)
Colour: Mixed Light and Dark Brown coat with slightly black face.
Sex: Female
Date of Birth: 10 June 2007

She is a gorgeous and obedient puppy. We bought her from a family in Hillcrest on the 15 July 2007. She has three brothers and four sisters all of which have gone to lovely homes.

She eats twice a day and really enjoys her doggy wors. She is quite a vibrant puppy, loves to jump around and play all the time. Quite the climber too...

Tracey and I took her for a walk around Lahee Park yesterday which she thoroughly enjoyed.
We also bought her a bright pink collar "so that people will know that she is a little girl puppy", as Tracey would say. Aimee brings a lot of happiness to the family.

My Wife's New Hobby.

Last week Tracey decided to start making cards to earn some extra pocket money. I totally support her in this, I think it is a great idea, it will keep her busy during the day, while I'm at work. It will also give her a sense of pride, in that she is making cards that people like and want to buy. If you are interested in what seeing some of the cards she has made. Her site is Check it out!

Another Busy Day.

Posted by Andrew Bevan | Posted in | Posted on 5:43 AM

Started the day as normal. Woke-up, got changed, and breathed in the crisp winter morning air. Left for work around 6am. It was about mid morning and at which time I was told that I had to work overtime that evening. Was not excited about that but if it has to be done, it has to be done.

Well, Good News is that the QA Team and I worked our asses of the whole day and got the work done before 5:30pm. ie. NO OVERTIME... Excited and ready to go home to my loving wife.

Just stuck waiting for old Andrew R.

After a LONG day at work.

Posted by Andrew Bevan | Posted in | Posted on 5:44 AM

"I'm Awake" thats what I told myself this morning at 5am. I knew that it was going to be a busy day. Things to get done at work, worries of not getting projects out in time.

All I can say now is "Home Time", I was right, it was a very busy day, lots of ups and downs. It is all over now. Time to go home to my Loving Wife and a hearty home cooked meal.

Good Night.
