We have an alfresco birthday lunch

The sprog is 9 today so we had an alfresco lunch (er, that means outside for those who don’t know French like moi…) with roast pork, Yorkshire puds, crackling and lots of vegetables followed by a piece of cake.

Oh, my mum says it was actually pizza cake.  Eh, pizza is tomatoes and stuff, how can it be cake?  She made a cake then decorated the top as a pizza?  Strange – why couldn’t we just have pizza as that’s the sprog’s favourite food?  Favourite apart from cake?  Oh, I see.

I got some of leftovers with my dinner and a small piece of cake…sorry,  P1060130 P1060145 pizza cake!




I go shopping

What a surprise – I’ve been shopping!  My mum hardly takes me but because I’m getting better on the lead (Brownie points there!) she said I could go along this morning.  I wasn’t terribly impressed when she tied me up outside Tesco while she went in to buy a newspaper but it got better.  I selected my own dog biscuits in another shop, hovered on the doorstep of the deli while she got cakes then we went right into a clothes shop where I was a real hit and was petted by the assistant and customers.  I gave them paws which really impressed.

They thought I was so well behaved, sitting beside the changing room while my mum tried on some things.  (I don’t know why she needs more stuff; she’s got loads of clothes and she could set up in opposition to Boots with all the bathroom gear and make-up she has.)

Then it got so hot we had to retreat inside – me and my mum, that is.

The cat stayed in the shade under the bird bath….

In deep doo doo

I’m not the most popular dog in the household today.  Collected this morning to go to the beach and had a lovely time.  But then something just clicked in my brain and I decided I didn’t want to go home.  The rest of the pack, the dog pals I often run with, were in the car and I turned about and returned to the sands.  Ructions!

My mum had to be phoned to come coax me off.  Of course I didn’t know this and, with more encouragement, I thought better of it before she got there.  We met her halfway…..

Have lain low all day since.  Will I be forgiven in time to go tomorrow?
