There comes a point in a middle aged woman’s life when she decides she needs a small dog. I don’t know when it happened to me, but when the need hit me, it hit me hard. I spent a bit of time researching breeds and came to the conclusion that the best match for me was a chihuahua. Then I found Nell and the rest, as they say, is history. She’s five months old and super sweet. We spend a lot of time together snuggling on the sofa and watching TV. I’m looking forward to warmer weather so she and I can enjoy some walks on the beach on Bute.
I’ll be back in the new year with more reviews. In the meantime, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2017.
Rosie, our newest rescue, might have been dog in her former life. She begs at the dinner table, steals dog food, growls at the postman, and would rather hang out with our two dogs than any of our other cats. She also sleeps in the dog bed.
I’ll be back next week with another review. In the meantime, have a happy Halloween!
Rosie is an expert sleeper during the day. She’s much more active at night.
If I ever move back to the city, I’d love to live in the West End. The public gardens there are beautiful and full of colour.
Spring has reached Scotland – daffodils, sunlight, and the hens are laying again.
On Sunday, I managed to get my tomato and tomatillo seeds into the propagator. With such a short growing season here, I have to ensure I have nearly-mature plants ready to plant out by the first of May. So many seeds, and so many plans. I’m even going to attempt mustard greens this season. I love this time of year. I get all of the promise of a beautiful Spring and Summer, and none of the disappointment of the reality when it’s cold and wet from April until August.
When you have four cats, really the only thing you actually need is another cat. This is Lola. She’s two years old and very sweet. For fourteen years I’ve wanted a cat who loves me best, and I think I finally have one.
Great year for tomatoes in the greenhouse. And there are more to come!
