Twos Company

Let me take you back to the 9th January, 2015, when I brought Honey home.  I had taken Polly to the kennels to see how the two of them would get on.  Despite an initial growl from Polly, they were fine. 

Within a few hours of getting home, Honey boldly went over to the dog bed Polly was in and stepped in.  The look on Polly's face was priceless:)  Honey layed down cuddling up to Polly.  Well the old girl made it clear straight away that she was not having this invasion of her space and growled at Honey.  Honey got out of the bed and went into the other one.

She tried this once more a few days later, but the outcome was the same.

Then the other day, over two years since I got Honey, this happened:





They never fully relaxed, but there was no growling.


About 15 minutes later this was Honey.

Here's my desk this morning.  I was playing with a new set of Steadtler Fineliners (on offer in Tescos) and a fairly new set of Stabilo Power pens.





This is the card I was working on.  It's for a swap where the theme was mirror.  I have a mirror image of the elephants.

Today marks the 8th year of WOYWW.  Thank you Julia for starting this weekly event.  It's great seeing other deskers work area and have got loads of inspiration.



On my desk are some postcards to colour in.  I received the pad of postcards from a member of my RAK (Random Act of Kindness) Group, for our May RAK.  I haven't done postcards before, but these were fab, so I will look out for some.



Here are some I have completed.

Pijama Party

My girls and I had two of my friends dogs yesterday and over night. 

All the dogs know each other and Hilary's know me.  I have looked after them at Hilary's, but this is the first time they have stayed here.


They'll be going home this morning.

After my dad passed away, I came across his Navy things.  Got a box frame and have been meaning to do it for ages.

Not sure if the three buttons will stick, so may have to open it up and do something else, but not sure what.

Beauty Sleep


As you know my girls, like most Greyhounds, take there beauty sleep very seriously.  On average they sleep for 16 hours a day.


Polly says being an elderly dog (she's 10) she has to take it easy whenever possible, which seems to be most of the time.



Honey (who is 6) goes along with Polly and is happy to take a nap any time.  



We hope you are having a lovely Easter.

This was my desk yesterday evening, with the card I had just made for a swap where you had to use peel offs.  I think I should have coloured around the sentiment in the yellow, as the purple doesn't help the sentiment stand out.

Recharging Our Batteries

When you have had a busy week, there's nothing better than recharging your batteries.

My girls are very good at doing just that.



Here's Honey




Polly showing how it should be done.  This is known as roaching.




We hope you have a lovely weekend.

I Introduce To You - Blue

Well I have a name for the Suzuki. I did think about AO, which Is blue in Japanese (Suzuki is Japanese) and the first two letters of my registration are AO. However, I put all 13 suggestions (from groups, FB, blog comments and emails) into a hat (well a bowl).

The winner is Blue suggested by Dianne Richardson.  There will be a little prize going her way.

My New Baby

I picked up my newer car this morning.  I loved driving Kermit (my VW Golf), but he was 16 and more and more things needed doing.

I've got a 5 year old Suzuki SX4.  Dad had one several years ago, which I drove occasionally.  All I have to get use to is that it's not automatic, so I have to remember to change gear.  I stalled it twice on the way home, but I am sure I will get the hang of it.




I would have shown you front and back, but apparently it's not good to show the Registration plate.  There must be some way of blacking that out, but I don't know how.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Polly's 10th Birthday - 1st March, 2017

If you are looking for WOYWW post, it is under this one.




My beautiful Polly is 10 today.  I still remember the day I went to the RGT (Retired Greyhound Trust) kennels to see about getting another Greyhound.  The lady who ran the kennels brought her out to me and that was it.  I didn't need to see another one.


She mended my broken heart when I lost Song, my previous Greyhound suddenly to Cancer.
