Back! (at last)

Sorry I've been M.I.A. for a while, been a busy time around here. We had a lovely relaxed family Xmas. It was lovely! I didn't burn anything, and i remembered the stuffing! Huge achievement! lol. New year was relaxed and quiet too. Just as well as I was full of the flu. We went to a neighbours party, we were free to go as the kids were all visiting family, was nice to get out together and meet new people.
Between Xmas and new year, we welcomed a new pooch into the family! Isn't he adorable?! He's 5, and apparently a long haired German Pointer X Lab. Although everyone is adamant he looks just like a Spaniel. His family were (supposedly) made homeless and couldn't keep him, but they were able to keep the Lhasa Apso they intend to breed from. But their loss is our gain! He is a very sweet boy, very clever, he picks things up very fast. Perfect with kids and our old lady lurcher is thrilled to have a friend to play with. She's acting like a puppy again!

We also had my eldest sons 13Th birthday! I still cant quite believe I'm a Mum to a teenager!! He had a lovely day. I have middle son off school today, stomach bug. He's chirpy enough though. Thankfully.
Tomorrow, I have my Ophthalmology appointment in the big city. Dreading the 2 hour bus, horrid eye drops etc. My Mum is coming with me though, so I'm grateful for that. Just hoping we get some answers this time! Headaches are really starting to get me down.

Other than that, all has been well here, just relaxing and enjoying family time. Getting ready for kids going back to school, and i shall be back with more photo's as soon as i can get them from OH, he has been on photo taking duty.
Hope everyone is well and enjoyed a happy and healthy Xmas and new year!

  1. Ah he is a cute poochy! Good luck with the opthalmology appointment, I always find those places smell funny.

  2. He's gorgeous and looks very like a Red Setter! Spo pleased yor old lady lurcher is playing with him, I always find a younger dog can give an older dog a bit more of a zest for life! Happy New Year!

  3. Just stopped back to let you know that I awarded you a "stylish Blogger" award on my post tonight. I love reading your blog and wanted to share it on my post.
    Bye! Rach

  4. Awww the doggy is lovely, he does look like a spaniel! Hope he's settled in well! x
