Saffron loving the snow

Saffron loving the snow

Wednesday, 27 July 2011


Hello all. Today is Wednesday and tomorrow is hubbies birthday so after I've finished my one lesson at 10 o clock I'll take him into town for a pizza. I've put in a picture of Poppy in the conservatory looking into the garden. At the moment she isn't a happy bunny as she is under house arrest as I mentioned before but maybe she will put on a couple of pounds as she can't burn all her energy off. I'm having to go round the house with my scrubbing brush and salt water after her and wiping the non carpet floors to get the blood off, so far so good. I've actually sent for some doggy diapers for this problem but they may get here when it's all over, have to see. I'll get her spayed sometime in the future so she doesn't have this again. Picked up a bit more work so that's good news, could still do with more work though. Bye for now, Linda x

Poor old Poppy

Hi all, poor old Poppy has come into season, so she is under house arrest for 3 to 4 weeks. I took Saffron out today and luckily hubby was here and he said Poppy went mad running up and down the stairs crying and getting upset. I'll get her spayed next year so she doesn't have to deal with this again. The thing is too, I've lost my longer walking buddy :)
I managed to get the jungle cut today and give the door another paint, hopefully over the weekend I might get door number 2 finished. Hubby and I went to see mum today and we went out for a bite to eat, very nice. Hubby put mums blinds up so now she has 3 that match. Been very warm today but the sky went so black as I was cutting the grass I was a bit worried I might electrocute myself :)
Bye for now, Linda x

Today Sunday 17th July

Hi all and a good afternoon to everyone. Yesterday and today I've been painting.I don't know if I actually mentioned what I'm painting at the moment so I thought I'd let you know. We live in a 1930s semi and the doors upstairs are heavy and have a panel almost covering the whole door so when we decorated I said to hubby it might be nice to see what's underneath. He took the panels off to reveal the original doors with 4 panels. There is a big one at the top and 3 smaller panels going vertical, hope that makes sense. The doors aren't in the best shape but they do look nice. I've been painting the 2nd one but they will all need 2 or 3 coats and we have just taken the 3rd one off the hinges for hubby to start sanding down. I'm doing the painting in the summerhouse so it doesn't matter on the weather. In Guildford ATM we have the Guilfest on and it's a shame as it's been raining on and off all day yesterday and today. Stoke park turns into tent city over the weekend, such a shame for the campers. In case you don't know Guilfest is a music festival. Saying that, I hope I spelt it correctly. The house is looking nice now as we are keeping it tidier and it's been freshened up. I won't be cutting the grass which was a job for the weekend, but hey ho.Linda x

Hi all. Had a near miss today as I almost ran Poppy over. We had come in from our walk and I thought I'd get my car out of the garage ready for lessons later and Poppy was in the conservatory but she let herself out and I'd left the back gate open. It was only because I keep looking in the mirror that I saw her behind the car, my God. I will take a lot more care from now on. If I'm doing something in the garden and I don't want her out I do lock the door, but never gave it a thought this time, Linda x

Went to a garden party today

Hello to one and all. Today mum and I went to a garden party hosted by The Mayor & Mayoress of Waverley at Charterhouse school. We arrived @ 2.30 and had tea, sandwiches and cakes and we stayed for about an hour. It was very pleasant as I haven't been to one before. I've been to the school before as I've had a couple of pupils from there. The buildings and grounds are fab, if you get the chance to have a look online, take a peek. The reason mum was invited was because of when she volunteered to help with the stall at the village fete I mentioned before and I was the +1
I have also managed to get my ebook (kindle version) on Amazon, so now I would like a sale, fingers and everything crossed.
Sorry for the plug but I'm a happy bunny.

Wimbledon over, sad

Hi all, well it's over now. I'm pleased with the outcome as I wanted both of them to win. Once Roger had gone out the winner was my next choice, did you see what I did there, (don't think I can spell his name). Today I've not been working so it gave me time to get some housework done, hurra. Rain is forecast for the next day or 2, suits me as it's been too hot for me. Hubby took another bedroom door off so I've got sanding and painting to do. My front door is finished but I've got to do a bit more scraping of paint to get off, hope that makes sense. I will be working tomorrow but just for 3 hours. I could do with a few more pupils as I lost about 5 when they all passed 1st time. Don't think there is any more news at the moment, so I'll sign off, Linda x

Hi all, I thought I must write this while it's just happened. Don't know if I've mentioned that Poppy can open the conservatory door but she can. and lets herself into the garden. Anyway I'm in the lounge having my breaky watching Desperate Housewives and when it's finished I take my tray out to the kitchen then I was going to get ready. As I'm going to the kitchen I notice Saffy in the garden and I thought my God I've left her out there all that time, only I didn't let the girls out hubby did when he got up. I then think Poppy has done it. I go in the garden and they are both chewing lovely big sticks, something I never let them do and when I get closer to the back gate notice the dog mess bags are all torn up and there is no mess inside, Saffron has eaten it. I phoned hubby and told him what had happened, so that's the last time the back door will be left unlocked, that's for sure. Saffron will smell lovely later if she burbs near anyone. I can't believe that happened. I've put some disinfectant over the patio as it's got bits of dog mess over it and I'll give it a scrub later when I'm dressed. Anyway, thought I'd share, have a lovely day all and later I'll be watching the tennis, Linda x
