Time has just slipped away, and we are almost two thirds of the way through Autumn. Gilly enjoys Autumn.
I've been poorly with a cold which turned into a sinus infection, which may (or may not) be gone. Hedy was being a puppy, which required quite a lot of effort, so thank goodness for Lorelai Gilmore. She is A Shining Star of obedience, companionship and puppy-wrangling. Quite a lot of my conversations lately begin with:"I was going to, but then the puppy came."
Lorelai Gilmore and Hedy Lamarr went to visit The GardyGardeners. Hedy tipped out the water bowl twice, and almost chewed the vacuum cleaner.
They could run and play in the garden and Hedy loved the large giraffe ornament. Gilly was exhausted before we even went home.
Hedy was exhausted when we came home, and slept with her ears arranged through The Crate.
We went to The Vet to be weighed and Hedy is 8.7kg, so growing nicely. We saw Dr Malcolm and he said she was a cracker of a puppy, and she walked on her lead very nicely. The weather is very warm for Autumn and so there is a lot of playing in the paddle pool, especially after a ride in the car.
And this happens:
Hedy Lamarr has ears that remind me of Sister Betrille in The Flying Nun.
Well, apart from Labrador-ing, nothing much else has been happening. I sewed some new shopping bags. I have started numbering them, but I didn't keep a proper record with the photos, but I am about to sew #80.
I sewed the Cat bag for a kind lady at the knitting shop. The cupcake bag was for The Bakers and their new shop. The material was the closest thing to a baking theme I had. I ate the most delicious rhubarb and custard pastry from their shop.
The apple bag was for The GardyGardeners and I sent The Labrador bag to a far away friend. I only have a little of The Peri & Gilly material left, so I shall have to print some Gilly & Hedy soon.
Hedy started as all The Dogs have, and as she means to go on: helping with the photos.
Lorelai Gilmore enjoys her walks with her friends, Rafa and Sandy. Most of the time they do parallel play, but at other times,
Thank goodness Hedy is able to look after herself a bit more. When I am poorly and spend the day in bed she has to fend for herself with Gilly. I have been doing a lot of reading, I discovered some Georgette Heyer-lite books by M C Beaton and so I have been devouring them as quickly as they come from The Library.
Tonight we are doing Sewing, but with no actual sewing. I am making some apple pastries and not having a glass of bubbly, because I am taking pretend cold and flu tablets.
I do like to try and answer all my comments. It is not a chore and I know it is not a "should", so I shall work my way slowly through them. I appreciate all the lovely comments on my blog. The blogs I read?? Well everyone could have won the lottery and moved to France with a film star as far as I know. I shall slowly catch up on that as well!!!
I think we might have time for a nap before tea time. Actually, there's always time for a nap!!
