Collage Friday – puppies, watersports & a birthday

It’s been a fortnight of pure fun around here.

J(8) had his first wakeboarding lesson. Can you tell that he quite liked it?

Not to be outdone, C(9) decided it was time to grab Mummy’s surfboard and hit the waves. (I have made it very clear that it is still my surfboard!)

We drove down to Wales to collect our new puppy…

New puppy, Branwell. The children chose his name after Branwell Bronte, the chief genii in “The Return of the Twelves”

Β Our older dog, Harvey, was a bit thrown when puppy left the breeder’s house with us.

“What the…?!”


C(9) is being a wonderful second time puppy-mummy. I hardly know we’ve got him which frees me up to lavish lots of fuss on Harvey, who in turn is shaping up to be a very good big brother.

Our butterflies emerged. They seemed to speed through the transformation process thanks to the warm weather we’ve been having.

And I celebrated a birthday…

Walk in the woods
As the birthday girl I got to choose the dog walk Β – my favourite woods of course (no swings for miles!)

Then a lovely dinner out and birthday cake at home with my gorgeous family.

It’s been a wonderful week. πŸ™‚
