Been a busy busy week and have not had five minutes to myself. No sewing or crocheting done, it seems to have been a week of go here go there do this and do that. Have been covering for holiday relief in a cleaning job I do when the normal cleaner takes her holiday.
No overtime so Ziggy was still around when I got home. She spent time out in the garden learning about grass. She was fascinated by the texture and loved the fact she could pick it, and eat it of course. Her and Grandddad had about an hour of fun just picking and playing with the grass and a piece of pipe insulation which silly Granddad was using as a nose as well as popping on Ziggy's toes and hand.
Needed to do a bit of shopping so decided to take a walk along the river while I was in town anyway.
We took a run up to The Dogs Trust to find out a bit more about a few of the dogs we were interested in. Met one of them. Going back on Thursday for a second meet. Unfortunately the centre is an hour away so was a bit time consuming. Went for a walk up at Whitelees wind farm on the way home.
Took the car in to get the air con regassed. Fed up of stewing sat in traffic jams coming back from Glasgow and general day to day driving at this time of year. Also find it handy to unsteam windows in rainy winter weather as well. Took a walk along the river to kill the time I had to wait.
Went back to see the dog again and refresh our minds on the history as was a lot of info thrown at us on Tuesday about various ones. The dog we are hoping to bring home needs a series of meetings before we can get him to make sure he bonds with us. Have to say they appear to be a much more professional organisation than the last one we got the dog from. The annoying thing is we probably got less than ten minutes with the dog despite being there for nearly 2 hrs.
Always try and do a baking so that I have something to take to work for eating in my break. Today I made time to make some peanut butter cookies, a quick simple recipe that requires little mixing. Added some sultanas to the recipe. Also made a banana loaf to use up some soft bananas.
There was a competition running over on twitter and I managed to win a bag of buttons. I did read other people were winning dozens of packets but was not sure what I would do with dozens of packets so stopped at one.
