It was glorious here this morning
For the first time this year I hung my washing out to dry
Cleaned the wrought iron cafe table and chairs
Had my (late) breakfast outside
Cleaned the large blue painted wooden garden table
Had my lunch outside
Made Raspberry Flapjacks
As well as all the other boring bits and bobs
After picking up my daughter we took Logan along to the large pet centre at our local garden centre to visit the staff there and to buy him a new collar, lead, harness,name tag and car strap - it's brilliant, you can take dogs in on a lead into the pet area as they have a separate entrance from the car park!
We visited there for the first time the day before we got Logan to get a few things in readiness for him, and the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable and encouraged us to bring him in to show them.
So today they met Logan and thought he was pretty cute!
He was carried around and petted and spoilt and given treats whilst we had our personal shopper coming round with us and holding our purchases for us - they are brilliant here! They are trained, can offer advice on nutrition and all sorts of things - a bit like the chemist is to the Drs, the Pet Centre are to the Vet!
They even do engraved name tags whilst you wait, and offer a micro chip service!
Here is a rather blurry picture of Logan wearing his smart new collar and red bone shaped name tag!
And with his new sqeaky newspaper toy
He had a great time last night at the Puppy party - he really joined in this time as there were only three other dogs, so less scary for him. In fact he came out of his shell so much he even got a little fresh with a female toy poodle!
This lovely wall plaque was left behind by the previous owners, and is just outside the back door so you see it every time you go in and out - I love the words
And beneath it sits a wall planter (also left behind) which really needs a new liner, and has seen better days - tomorrow I shall squeeze in some trailing ivy to try and hide the bare patches - I just wanted to get the primulas in!
Have a lovely weekend!
NB. Last chance for entering the giveaway tomorrow - will pick a winner on Sunday!
