Project 366 week 20

Sunday

Finished work at 5pm today for a change and so went for a walk after tea with the dog. Here she is relaxing on the slabs at the bottom of the garden.

Monday

Our car was in the garage for a check so could not take Bob to gymnastics so I babysat the wee ones instead while daughter took him. After babysitting we walked the dog. Love the bluebells in amongst the wild garlic. Whenever I go in now the twins ask about Lilly and like to walk her round the kitchen table on her lead while she is in.

Tuesday

Had a busy day dashing here there and every where else and so decided to stop off at McD's for a burger, and of course if the dog is with us then she had to be introduced to her first burger with us. She is now registered at the vet. We took her in after surgery hours just in case but she did not bother herself with the vet's dog until hubby started stroking it, and then she woofed. Her tail was wagging so not sure if she wanted to play, but as they were operating on a cat we left so as not to disturb them. 


Lilly gets her bit. 


Wednesday

Daughter needed a babysitter while she went and did some shopping so I babysat Bob and the gruesome twosome. So we had some fun. Here are the two of them tickling each other after they had been sat on top of each other.

two happy little people.


Thursday

Visit day, so lucky for us DD3 was off work and so sat in with Lilly for a while, and then after school Fifi came and sat with her until we got back. Have to say she seems happy enough to be left with other people, the mistake we made with the last dog was never leaving her, so starting as we mean to go on.
Popped in while we were walking Lilly after we got back. Spud was fast asleep. She is a very content baby who is now starting to smile and make noises at people.

Friday

Hubby had an appointment at the eye clinic today, a follow up visit from his diabetic screening. His appointment was suppose to be at 3.20 but they phoned to say they were running a bit late and could he come at 3.40. Well this was the wall we sat and stared at for two hours, we eventually got out at 6.05pm, Have no idea how a clinic that starts at 1.30 can be so far behind with appointments. Nothing to worry about back in three month.

Saturday

The mint is starting to grow nicely with the rain we have had this week. Starting drinking peppermint tea again as well as putting some in bottles of sparkling water to flavour it naturally, much better for me than fizzy juice.

  1. Love the photos of Lily and it sounds like she is settling into your family very well. That must have been very annoying/ boring waiting at the hospital for so long. Flavouring water with mint sounds like a really good idea.

  2. What a lovely looking dog. I wish waiting rooms provided something more interesting to look at! I love peppermint tea - have never thought to try and make my own!

    1. If I had known we were going to be so long I would have taken a magazine to read and a pen to do the puzzles in it, it was a VERY boring wait.

    1. She has well and truly made herself at home and was a great buy, worth every penny.

  4. Oh my, I hate the waiting rooms. The bluebells and wild garlic look lovely. We often have peppermint tea, as it's good for digestion, and we like the flavour.

    1. I think that is why it stuck out because it was the combination.

  10. i think Lilly is setting in very well to your family - and maybe getting a little spoilt bless her! She is a cutie, as is little Spud. Awwww she is growing fast. Such clever idea to make your own peppermint tea and fizzy water Elaine x
