My Boy …..


Good morning peeps, the sun is shining here and it looks like it’s gonna be a beautiful day. Of course, everyday is beautiful – its just the weather that can let it down! Living in England I think I need to be hypnotized into loving cold wet weather!!

Anyway, today I thought I’d share a little picture (or two) of my doggies…

Firstly, here is Teddy

Then we have princess Lilybett



They are both standard poodles and are half brother and sister – they have the same mum but different dad’s. These pictures were taken in June 2015, so Teddy would have been just under 2 years and Lily just under 3 years, and they were both in need of a ‘spa day’

Any hoo hugs for now ✳



just a tad excited……….


I’m starting to get just a little bit excited now. Not too much you understand but just a teeny bit.

I’m not sure where I read it, but someone said you can never have too many poodles….one is never enough. Well, guess what, we are getting an addition to the family! Yay!!

Princess Poopy Pants is getting a baby brother……….Will probably be known as Prince PeeWee.

He is indeed another standard poodle, apricot colour and will be coming home next weekend, I can’t wait. I just hope the Princess of the house will like him.

This week end we are off to buy him his collar, name tag and lead

Oooooh! I’m even more excited now!!!

I will put a picture as soon as I have one x

a little shabby chic………

This is how it started...

This is how it started…

My hubby came home last week with a couple of little chests of drawers. They had definitely seen better days but he just wanted to put them into his workshop / garage.

Well I’ve looked at them for a week, just sitting there, in the conservatory looking sorry for themselves so today I decided to cheer them up a bit!

This was the result

I had fun with my little bit of upcycling, hope you enjoy seeing it………..hope hubby likes it too!

a jolly good time……..


Yesterday was a really good day, I really enjoyed my self.

The weather wasn’t terrific but the company was superb. We had some visitors coming from way back where we used to live and they were bringing their dog with them – an 8 year old standard poodle called Pepper. I was looking forward to our poodle meeting him. I don’t know what it is exactly, but standard poodles look gorgeous in their own right but when there is more than one they look even more special. Somehow the end result is more than the sum of the parts of you get what I mean.
Anyhoo, as people that we hadn’t seen for ages were coming I thought a little housework was necessary! Not something that has been overly high on my priority list of late I must admit. I pottered about and did a little light dusting etc and I actually ENJOYED it…..is that a little sad or what?

When our friends arrived we had a good, fun afternoon. The dogs got on really well, with the only problem being my baby thinks every one loves her all the time, she just doesn’t stop and it gets a bit much (I think Pepper would have liked some space bless him). I’m sure she has got the doggy equivalent of ADHD – does any one know if there is such a thing?
I also rather enjoyed a glass of wine,,,,mmm, NICE!
We took the dogs for a walk to the beach where they had a good run around and a dip in the sea – they do love the water you know, but they don’t look any where near as glamorous when they are wet.
Not the best picture in the world but all I could get.

After our friends left we toddled off to our local club where we met up with more friends.
What can I say, we had such a laugh there!
I laughed so much it was starting to hurt – I’m sure I would have burst my stitches if I’d had any, but it was so nice.
It’s so true what they say about laughter being the best medicine.
Thank you peeps for being there and letting us share your company xx

A quick word on the subject of stitches and healing:
My recovery from my mastectomy is doing amazingly well. I don’t have much pain or very often so that is nice. My arm movement and all that is coming along nicely to. I’m sure I’ll write another post on this subject!

what a laugh….


Today has been fantastical.

The dog had another spa day (hasn’t that come round quick?) so hubby and I took the opportunity to go out for a while. We popped to the shops as I really don’t have enough tops that button down the front. I was warned that it is difficult (!) to get clothes on over your head in the early days after mastectomy so be sure to have button fronted tops. I thought I had catered for this sufficiently, but what I didn’t take into account was that mostly the tops were quite sheer material and require a camisol underneath! Kind of defeats the object really. So we went shopping.

A reasonably successful trip – although it seems quite difficult to get what I really want…….a nice colour, bit of pattern to hide any discrepancies, buttoned at front, high-ish neckline and a soft tee shirt material……..am I really too demanding!! Obviously I am, so I pushed my luck a bit more and suggested ‘tea at the sea’
The sun was shining, a light warm breeze and me and my man on the sea front – what more can a girl want?

Oh, and the dog looks gorgeous.
