It's down to the wire and the dogs.

It's now only 5 days until the Twisted Sisters compete in the 100km Trail runners event in Sydney.Excitement and nerves are building and we are all ready to go and tackle this madness.Training is complete, equipment prepared, final remedial massages have been endured and toe nails are ready
We all got together for breakfast yesterday and I had afternoon tea with my personal trainer Ros for a final bit of encouragement.

The Twisted Sisters; Babette, Tracey, Moi and Sue.

However this week has not all been smooth and carefree. As with all team events some conflict will arise and we have had our share of it this week.

Our team with DH Daryl and Mike.

This is how the story goes; Susi and Tracey have adjoining farms and both girls have farm dogs. Susi has Buster the Foxy and Tracey has Doris; 4 legs, a tail and walks like a dog so must be a dog.
Any how , the girls have been training so hard that clearly they have let their doggy responsibilities slip. Result ; Doris is now with child and Buster has been named as the most likely culprit.
Tracey claims the liaison was definitely non consentual , Sue claims Buster is choosey and a gentleman. Mike, Buster's Dad is requesting DNA testing. As with most blokes Buster has fled back to his kennel , denying all responsibility and poor Doris is doomed to a life on the Single Mothers Pension. Hopefully Abby the mother of his legitimate children has given him a well deserved bite on the bum.

The Mother to Be.

Everyone knows my absolute love of dogs.

As promised during my week of tapering, the sewing machine has been put through it's paces and 3 finishes have been achieved. Now my sewing ability closely resembles a horse race. I make a good start out of the boxes, do well on the straight, falter at the first bend and finally limp over the finish line on 3 legs with a project that does not usually resemble the designers intent.

My hexagon bag. I enjoyed this project so much me thinks another one is needed.

A little Dilly bag.

If you visit my blog please leave a comment as I like to know I am not talking to myself.

Cheers Karen.


  1. Did he stand on a step? Love the bags

  2. GOOD LUCK WITH THE 100KMS RUN Karen and all your twisted friends.Your babies and I will cuddle up in the warm.

  3. goodluck with the NOT my thing.........nice bags.......

  4. Good luck with the run. I have a friend doing it. Say hello to Andrew if your paths cross. He loves a chat.
    I've never heard of a dog being choosy if there's a bitch in heat. You're not going to convince me that Buster didn't sniff around Doris.

  5. I don't know but am trying to find out. I'll let you know if he gets back to me.

  6. Andrew is running in Team Three Plus One and they're starting at 7:00. Good luck for the weekend.

  7. The Twisted Sisters are going to cover themselves with glory, they will make history!

  8. Don't you always talk to yourself you mad thing. Today is the day so I hope you won LOL. I think I have put on 10 kilos while away so I might be able to run 1 kilometre and than again not. What a cute puppy it was sounding like rape but then she would have had to stand on a box so perhaps it was concentual. Love the bag will have a closer look when I return.
