A little montage 

Standard

My little Archie looked so cute in his little Police K9 Unit top so I had to share with you. Also my cheese on toast I had for lunch one of the days last week with HP sauce of course, my cinnamon french toast with strawberries I had for breakfast it’s a comfort food for me. I love potatoes and I have done a whole blog post on this(in the food section of this blog) but these crushed roasted new potaoted with garlic and thyme are so tasty I try to make them once a week. This morning I had no get up and go so I drank coffee and watched a vintage episode of the Only Way is Essex. My friends Daughter got married last week and the cake was beautiful I thought I would share the pic.  Archie likes to sleep on my and he crawls as high as he can get mostly under my chin and gets comfy. Hope you like my pics .

August…wouldn’t think so! 

Standard

Good old British Summer time, rain,wind and clouds! It is pretty dismal here in the UK and our weekend plans are going to have to change.  You can’t plan anything with this awful weather and I feel for the parents who are trying to keep their kids occupied indoors during the Summer school holidays. My tumble drier has been working overtime and I have cabin fever,apart from the odd walk when it hasn’t rained we haven’t been out on a nice day out with a nice dog walk (and carry as he only has little legs) yet. Today is very overcast and doesn’t look at all promising. How depressing! It looks and feels like an Autumn Day.

It’s raining now 

I got Archie a kids play tunnel for the garden in tne Morrisons sale it was only £4 I have it on the living room as it has been so bad I haven’t put it in the garden yet, he likes it and I throw his toys in and he grabs them and runs out the other side. Keeping him busy will keep him out of mischief as he is going through the chewing stage and have to watch him as he is so small he gets everywhere . 

He lives lying on me,he looks quite big in this picture but he isn’t,saying that he has grown since we had him . He is a bundle of energy and so much fun and when he tires himself out he likes to lie on me . He is on my right now as I am writing,I am in my pj’s,here he is . Right under my chin ! 

Hope through weather is being kinder to you . Good for the garden I suppose.

First bath

Standard

Archie was rolling around the garden and looked like he had been dragged through a hedge so I gave him his first bath.  We had got a new washing up bowl to use as his bath as it was the perfect size.  I put an absorbant mat on the worktop and sat the bath on it . He was scared at first and I didn’t give him a long bath just long enough to clean him off and rinse.  He looked so cute and loves being dried wrapped in his towel he thought it was a game and tried to eat the towel. Here are some pics.  

Isn’t he the cutest ?

Archie is home 

Standard

We picked Archie are puppy up yesterday we were expecting a sleepless night but I was the one awake checking on him ,he was so good and he did not even whimper.  He has been outside for a wee and settled in. He has chewed his lamb and donkey and likes his food.  I am so lucky . He is adorable and very funny. He doesn’t stray too far from his bed area but it’s only been a day and he loves his belly tickled.

Isn’t he the cutest ? I can see us having lots if fun training him and watching him grow and learn.

Friday …

Standard

John has been off work since Tuesday and we have been getting things ready for the puppy arriving as we had donated all of Alfie’s things to our local animal rescue mind you his bed and coats etc would have been way too big anyway so we have had to start again. We had a nice lunch out today nothing fancy just as the local harvester but it was nice just the two of us.  We did some shopping and then came home as I have my Grandaughter after school three days a week until her Dad finishes work. She stays one night a week which is usually a Thursday. When we came home John worked on moving the remaining pieces of our shed which we pulled down it had seen better days and we didn’t use it to store anything other than junk in and that’s all gone now. I have put Emily a Pizza in the oven  (her request) she loves the stuff I am not a fan of Pizza,Emily had her Sats results today and got expected levels and also lots of above expected which she is very proud of.  She loves science and English she isn’t a fan of Maths but her results in Maths were above expected.  

We are picking up Archie our Puppy tomorrow morning and I am so excited , he is ten weeks old now and have his two vaccinations and has been wormed and fleas treated. I am looking forward to working on his training and getting him socialised and hopefully we won’t have many sleepless nights and he settles in with us.Tonight we will just watch TV or a film on Netflix if I can stay awake . I have has some awful nights , I have a fitbit which monitors sleep and I haven’t had one night this week that I have slept more than five and a half hours. 

I will post a few pictures of little Archie over the weekend over on Instagram there is a link on my homepage 

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
