One Boy and His Dog

Last year my sister and her partner got a rescue dog. As a young pup, Riddler used to be somewhat excitable. The first few times Cheeky Chap met him I think he was quite taken aback by him. With time and training, Riddler has calmed down a little but is still definitely a character. For around six months, the husband walked Riddler twice a week when both my sister and her partner worked. During the school holidays, Cheeky Chap would join… Continue Reading “One Boy and His Dog”

The Ordinary Moments 16 #9 ~ The Half Way Point

It’s hard to believe but we are now half-way through the summer break. I almost feel as though we have wasted the last three weeks as we haven’t really done much at all.

The end of last term… Continue Reading “The Ordinary Moments 16 #8 ~ Good Enough”

I had to cheat a couple of times this week and use screenshots to make sure I could complete this week’s Project 366. Day 52 ~ Sunday 21st February ~A cheat picture but… Continue Reading “Project 366 ~ Week 8”

Holidays and Making Memories

I don’t know about you but I am finding the older I get, the faster time seems to fly by. Time hop this morning reminded me that this time six years ago I was pregnant with Cheeky Chap. As the memories of the pregnancy came back, the pain, the boredom from being house bound and not working, the heartburn and nausea, the discomfort throughout and moving about a month before giving birth, I reflected on how quickly time has passed and… Continue Reading “Holidays and Making Memories”
