Pippa pics!

I've been asked to post some pics of our dog Pippa.

She is frequently spotted in posted images, as she always seems to find her way in.
She is a black Labrador of approx 12 yrs.

Pippa has not been too well in the last 12 months, but appears to have come through it all well and is a happy elderly member of the family.
She follows us about endlessly it seems, more so since her companion Barney died 2 years ago.

Barney was our beloved one eyed and approx 20 year old Jack Russell/Terrier.


  1. Hooray! You can't go wrong with a happy, loyal hound!

  2. Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my blog - always feels better when I know there is a support network out there....good to pop in and look at your blog which is fab. I will be back after my travels! Lxx

  3. Hey FFF, long time no popst - how's it going?

  4. Some dogs are just born posers!

  5. Thanks so much for sending me this link :) I am a black lab fan from way back - in fact I have owned two.... Jenny and Tai... and after that I decided to try life with a smaller dog. I guess my other favourite dogs were goldies, but for years i was put off at the thought of all the grooming! SO Saff was a chance to get one, and actually she requires very little work.

    Ears are funny things.... and legal prescription rules are there to make sure the right drugs are used... but if it was just wax, ask them about some gentle cleaning products for her ears to help stop it building up. Also, many dogs get allergies which make them shake their heads - maybe a contact allergy to grass etc, or occasionally food will do it. Here in New Zealand it is often mange or fleas!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
