Sunday 30th Jan

Hi all, a couple of pictures of Poppy. The first one is of her with a food ball and the second is her in the basket moved to the conservatory while hubby is vaxing the floor. When I take the 2 girls over the field she is on the go the whole time unless she has stopped to go to the loo. and that's the only time. Today was a lovely sunny day and for a change it wasn't too bad out over the field. I've been making some soap but the batch I made today didn't work as I expected so now I'm not sure what to do with it. It had teddies and hearts in it but they are difficult to see. I made a loofah soap which is great but it needs to be a lot smaller as it weighs far too much, mind you it looked good. Mum and I went for a wander around Aldershot on Friday for a nosey but not too sure about the place, couldn't find any charity shops except one that sold furniture and I must say it had some nice stuff in there. Not much else to say really so I'll sign off. I'll keep you updated on the girls when I get a picture of them together, Linda x

Hi all

Hello to one and all. It's been a while and I took some photos of the girls yesterday which I'll put on here later, it shows how big Poppy has grown. At the moment we have some sun outside but we've had so much rain the girls didn't go out for 2 days. Poppy is not a rain dog. I opened the back door to let her go in the garden and she saw the rain and ran back inside. We bought a wobble kong Friday and the girls love it and it keeps them occupied for ages. Saffy has got first dibs on it when it gets filled up and put on the floor, mind you Poppy does manage to snaffle any spare bits that fall out too far from the kong. I went swimming and running last week but finding the running a bit hard going at the moment.This is the first time I've been out running since Oct as I haven't left Poppy. I'm going on a soap making course next week and I'm looking forward to that very much, can't wait. I've been watching a lot of tutorials on utube but you can't beat going and getting you hands dirty. We took the piece of wood off the bottom of the baby gate at the top of the stairs and hubby went downstairs one morning and she managed to get underneath it, the gap was tiny so now the wood has had to go back on the bottom. I'll take a picture and show you what I mean. Bye for now as the sun has gone in and I believe we are due rain later so I'd better get the girls out, Linda x

Enough is enough

Hi all,
The title says it all really. This morning I weighed myself and have put on weight as I knew I would over crimbo, but it's a bit more than I'm happy with. A while ago I donned waterproofs and started with my walking / running again. One good thing, they do exactly what it says on the tin, they keep the water out. I was drenched but nice and dry underneath. I've got things hanging in the bathroom now drip drying. We have snow forecast for tomorrow, what joy. The girls are fine but haven't been out today as it's so wet. I'll try and get a couple of photos of Poppy so you can see how she's grown. Short and sweet today. Linda x
