One thing that I have discovered this week is that very young puppies and crochet don't mix, and that
trying to get a ball of wool unhooked from sharp little puppy teeth can be quite a challenge.
Safe to say little progress has been made on Immi's Uni blanket in the past few days.
But we have had so much fun getting our little chap settled in to his first week with us.
He is such a good boy, and seems to have a very laid back and loving nature ...
he even fell asleep on the scales at the Vets.
There's been an awful lot of time spent in the garden for regular wee trips
as well as quite a bit of bed swapping ...
little basket and crate being for Otto, big bed being for Lilou !
And Lilou has had the patience of a saint
and seems to be beginning to enjoy her new companion.
And then ....
on Sunday afternoon I popped round the corner for a cup of tea with
a friend ( all part of the plan I discovered afterwards )
and came home to this ...
... a proper grown up afternoon tea party in our garden,
all arranged and baked by my gorgeous girls
as an early celebration for my birthday tomorrow.
Such a lovely, lovely surprise.
I had no idea at all that things were secretly being planned.
We had scones with fresh strawberries and cream, tiny dainty sandwiches,
Bubbles were drunk,
tummies were filled
and all was good with the world.
