Day Trip to see the Lions

Day Trip to see the Lions

We recently got given some tickets to go and visit the Lions at Longleat and as cheesy, commercialised and possibly-slightly-against-my-animal-welfare-principles as that is, we trundled down the A46 to see what surprises might lie in store. The last time I visited must have been thirty-five years ago; would it be the same magical place as […]

How my guinea pig got mistaken for a pumpkin which is an easy mistake to make

WARNING: Ever so slightly graphic images below. Mainly OK, but perhaps not suitable for viewing while eating a sandwich. OK, so it’s coming up for hallowe’en weekend (or Samhain as I insist upon calling it – although I’ve given up on encouraging anyone else to pronounce it; ‘sewing’? ‘say when’? ‘sow-win’? ‘saaween’? ‘samin’? OK KIDS, […]

Reading the paw prints….

Reading the paw prints….

Lil’ Pupskins has now perfected the art of jumping into our bath tub. He especially loves to do this just after we’ve used it so that he can produce the dirtiest, muddiest and, of course, most clearly delineated paw prints he can possibly muster on the damp surface. To begin with, it was a little […]

The path less traveled…

Well. What can I say? It was only a little earlier in this blog that I was taking stock of everything that had happened this year, and being bamboozled by the unexpectedness of it all. And now here is the biggest surprise of all; PLOT CHANGE!!!!!!!! I have adjusted my direction yet again and I’ve […]

The day job (part one)

The day job (part one)

Here’s a little diversion. No dog hair in sight. Thought I’d tell you about one of my day jobs (‘one’ of them – a girl needs to spread her net wide in this day and age –  can’t get pigeon holed into just the one career, you know). This has been a passion of mine […]

Rainbow pizza

Rainbow pizza

We had an interesting conversation while walking to school this morning. It went along these lines. “Mummy, isn’t it good that there’s no rainbow coloured food because if we ate it and then sicked it back up into a puddle, and then stood in the puddle, we would have rainbow sick all over our shoes”.

Veera the Volunteera meets … Gobbolina

Helllooo. Veera heera. Ah thought Ah’d check in with all Ma friends and tell them about Gobbolina, the witch’s cat, who is alive and well and very keen to find a home of ‘er own. Of course, because of issues like data protection, privacy what-nots, a sheer lack of permission to do this and the […]

Going the whole hog…
