Polly's 8th Birthday (1st March)

Well it's Polly's 8th Birthday tomorrow (1st March).  There's no way I wanted to forget, so that's why I'm putting this post up now.

She's been with me now two years, five and a half months and yet I can hardly remember her not being here.  

She helped me get over losing Song.  My heart was broken, yet she came into my life and repaired it.   

When I lost my dad last October, she gave me space when I needed it, but she knew when I needed her and she'd come over and just lay her head on my lap.

Most of the photos of Polly (red collar) are of her curled up in her bed, so this one is rare.  As you can see I had to keep hold of her though:)

She has a new toy, new soft blanket to snuggle under and will of course get extra treats.




Since Honey (blue collar) joined us 7 weeks ago, she's been perfect with her.   They are friends already and I wouldn't be without either of them.  



The girls and I would like you to give your hound/s an extra hug for Polly's Birthday.

A dismal day here with dampness in the air.  Still the temps are up slightly, so not so cold.

Think the girls have the right idea to snuggle in in their beds.



Polly in the big bed.



 Polly roaching, whilst Honey sleeps.

  

We wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day.

Remember to hug your hound/s.

WOYWW 11th February

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk



 This card I made for a swap where the theme was Iris Folding.  I'd never tried it before and can't say it's my thing, but nice to try new crafting projects.



Got some cards ready to be put together.




I'll put photos of the finished cards on next weeks WOYWW.


Happy WOYWW.

Well the temps are still bloomin cold here.  We've had a lot of ice about.  The girls thought the best thing was to get some beauty sleep as well as keeping warm.


Honey fast asleep



Polly asleep. 



Polly roaching.



Honey playing with a KongWubba that was Songs.



Think she wondered if she was allowed it.  She hasn't been able to make it squeak, but when I do it for her, she loves it.



We hope you all have a nice warm weekend.  Remember to hug your hound/s.

Happy 4th Birthday Honey

It's Honey's 4th birthday today.

I hope she is with me for many, many more.




We had a walk along the cliffs at Hunstanton this morning.  That's the first time Honey has been there, so loads of pmail to leave:)

Girls were good getting in and out o f the car and fine when I left them for five minutes whilst I checked the bungalow was ok.

They've had their breakfast and are now snuggled up in the dog beds.




Hope you have a lovely day.  Remember to hug your hound/s.

WOYWW 4th February


Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk



I haven't actually done any crafting since last weeks WOYWW, so I thought I'd just show you my working area this morning.

This is the table that is to the left of my desk.  The lovely calendar was a swap.  I have another leaf I can put up when I need to spread out.


This is the little table on my right that has my printer on the top and some of my ribbons and Washi tape below.



This is the small shelving unit to the right of my desk.



Well I hope you all have a happy WOYWW.
