Mucky pups and Christmas tree.

Not long now and the C day will be here and gone.  Today is the shortest day of the year and the sun is out and shinning, doesn't even feel like winter, there is even greeny still in the hedgerows, birds still singing and the squirrels still evading capture from De-Fi dog.  The only downside to this time of the year is the muddy dog walks.  I love to watch my dogs jumping in massive puddles and rolling in the mud, but coming home and cleaning up is a monster task.  This week I wrapped towels around the pair of them and attempted to take a picture...

Our Iz in the utility room, waiting for the rub down.  Thats Claude in the background waiting for food!
De-Fi dog and Iz.  De-Fi just cant keep still!!  Thats our Megan taking a drink.  Can you see how black Iz's tum is?
So the washing pile just grows and for once its not just the kids making the most washing.  The Christmas tree finally went up yesterday

Merry Christmas

I love my tree.  Its not real but its a huge 7ft tree, that no longer fits in the living room, but thankfully we have a back to front house and a huge hall, so every year it gets tied to the front door - we always use the back door which is at the front of the house, both front and back doors being on the side...confused yet?  My ornaments are hand painted wooden ones that my hubby brought for me for our first ever Christmas together, nearly 20 yrs ago, a collection of sparkly baubles and some 'books' that represent each day from the 1st to the 25th.  My daughter always likes to hang the number 22 as thats her birthday.  She will be 16 tomorrow!!  Thankfully my son is going to be 18 this year, as it was always an arguement about him not having his birthday book to put on the tree, as his birthday is 31st December, at least this year he wasn't bothered!!  Some of my ornaments have little puppy teeth marks from when Iz was a puppy and used to steal them and run off with them.  They are my favourite ones, and some  have bits missing where long gone cats used to belt them off the tree and chase them around the room.   This is our first Christmas with De-Fi dog and we are all looking forward to a big walk Christmas morning with everyone and all the family dogs...must remember my camera!

Thank you to all my customers that have brought my beads and jewellery over the last year and I hope to see you next year at the fairs I will be doing.  Hope everyone has a fabulous Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I loved this post good to see all the action going on in your household. I could not cope with your darling dogs in my tiny house! What a wonderful life they have with you. Wish your daughter a very happy 16th and have a very Merry Christmas. Take care and enjoy those walks.
Love Jane xx
