Catching Up

Hi there

Just thought I would pop by and say "Hello".

As I expected, life with a puppy is full on!  He is adorable, full of mischief and totally wonderful.  But it is like having a toddler around again (without a nappy!), and my days are very full.  Sometimes I'm not sure what they are full off, but there doesn't seem to have been much time to get my camera out, nor craft.

As Basil is getting bigger, he can go on slightly longer walks, which we both enjoy.

We finished our first set of puppy classes.  In my defence, he was the youngest there, but we did have to move seats and go for a time-out!  He's certainly full of character.  

Anyway, I thought you might like to see a few photos from the last few weeks.  I suspect it will be a while before I'm back again.  I hope life is treating you all well.

A handsome little fellow :)

Puppy class graduation!  

Helping in the office - yes he has climbed on to my desk!!

A Walk with his big brother - They didn't want to keep still for a photo!

A tired boy on a Sunday morning.  Isn't he growing up fast!

Hi there


Sorry I haven't been around.  I've been to Spain for the last 3 weeks and when I got back on Saturday, we collected our puppy.

He is wonderful, but very time consuming.  I suspect I won't be around much, but will be thinking of you all!  

I'll be back when there is more time again.

I'll leave you with a photo of Basil.

Nymans Gardens

I met up with a friend for a walk at a National Trust property on Wednesday - not far away from here.  Nymans Gardens is a favourite of mine.  I have been a NT member since Matt was a baby.  There was nothing better than packing a picnic and spending a few hours at Nymans.  We certainly got our money's worth in those early days!

I don't visit Nymans so often these days - I really must put that right.  I lovely place to spend a couple of hours and the tea and cake is always good.

So, if I know what a lovely place it is, why an earth didn't I take my proper camera?  No, I've no idea either!  But I think you can get an idea of just how pretty and colourful it is at the moment.

Wishing everyone a happy weekend.  I'm off to Spain on Monday, so I won't be posting, but will still be reading your blogs, but rather than from sunny Sussex, I shall be laying in the sun, with maybe even a glass or two of wine!

My Puppy

Yesterday was a very important day - puppy choosing day!  :) :)

He will come home as soon as we are back from our holiday.

Introducing "Bouncing Basil", which is his Kennel Club name, but I rather like Basil.  He is a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, so will change from looking like a teddy bear, to a rather handsome medium sized, cheeky, golden coloured dog!

I can hardly wait.

Garden Colour - Summer 2015


I hope everyone has had a good weekend.

Matt has gone off to CCF camp to run round playing soldiers.  He loves it!

I spent most of yesterday at a card class - Zentangle inspired.  It was really good fun, with lovely people, and I came home buzzing with ideas.

Today, I've been at home, catching up with house stuff.  I had planned to sit in the garden this afternoon with my crochet and book - but both my parents have visited, the ironing seemed to go on forever, and I had a problem with the external hard drive which I use to back up my computer.  There's always another day to sit and be lazy - it's not long until my holiday!  :)

I did manage to spend some time in the garden though and thought I would share some of the colour with you.  Apologies some of the photos aren't as clear as usual - it is very windy here!

Take care and have a good week.

June Round-up

Just a quick post from me tonight.  Hasn't it been glorious today - but I'm worn out by the heat now!

So it's time to sit down with a glass of wine and some crochet and catch up with Wimbledon.

Another good month - some lovely walks, meeting a fellow blogger, my puppy has been born and plenty of cricket for Matt, and not forgetting Matt went to his first music festival and is in the photo which was in the newspaper.

Let's hope July is good too.

Hi again

Yesterday morning Matt was grumpy.  He's not prone to typical teenage grumpiness, but yesterday had it in spades!  Sadly, I stooped to his level, shouted and told him to get himself to school!  I needed a walk in the fresh air to clear my head, and start the day on a positive note.  

I'm so lucky to live with this literally on my doorstep.

By the time I walked back through my door, calm had been restored!  

Wishing everyone a happy weekend.  Sports Day tomorrow, and then a day in the garden and crochet on Sunday for me.
