Dame Mix-a-Lot

Nothing to do with big butts, promise. Mine is being carefully kept in check by energetic walking and playing with my dogs, 3 times a day, and a run every second day. I’m also going to get back into my yoga… might have to do it in a separate room, of course, because according to […]

another hodgepodge

I’ve been doing all these “things” to try to (almost) force myself to blog more… I added myself to a website “circle” all about sewing, I added an author link on G+ and I linked my blog to some other web groups as well… I’m also still trying to keep the “blogging tribe” experiment going… […]

Mohawks, robots, suits, hairy dogs and country roads.

Thought I’d do an update post as I’ve done lots in the last few weeks. Firstly – I shaved myself a Mohawk  Why? Because I can. It’s hair, it grows back – and mine grows like a weed Plus I thought it would look cool with the blond ends and dark roots… Here’s the process: Did […]

What took me so long?

Since I started walking Azzie, I have had issues with her pulling on the lead and dragging me off in various directions randomly, leaping around. On occasion she has nearly dislocated my shoulder, bowled me over and twisted my fingers until I thought they would snap… all the while dragging Gina around by the neck […]

Furry mom moment #656372

We got up at some terribly early hour this morning and got everyone ready to go. Azzie was THRILLED to go for a car ride – Gina was her usual serene self. Open windows for the slow parts of the ride and then we were on the autobahn and on our way. It’s about a […]

Quiet days

My husband and I have spent today waiting… the story of what we were waiting for is too long and complicated to go into, so I will just leave it at that. Let me just add: I hate bullies. We put off a whole bunch of things – just in case we were called. It […]

Jetlag, notions, exciting times ahead

I have to say I am so incredibly excited about what’s to come in my business life… Just before we left on our holiday, a wonderful lady got in touch with me via my Etsy shop saying that she had found my shop and was very keen to strike up a mutually beneficial relationship: seamstress […]

A mental raccoon moment

*rustle rustle* Hello I realised I haven’t posted in a while and I wanted to gather myself a bit and put down my thoughts from the last few weeks.   * Azzie is coming along very nicely. We seem to have sorted out her tummy issues with careful application of 100% pure pumpkin for when […]

End of the world? Just as we know it?

Woke up this morning and had REM’s song “It’s the end of the world as we know it” running through my mind 21st December 2012. (21.12.2012 in normal usage… 12.21.2012 for the Americans) I’m hoping the “end of the world” just means an end to the bad and a start of a new age – […]

Upon reflection…

Another much better night with Azzie after my husband and I made some compromises with her – I came to some conclusions about myself and about the dogs, and about life in general. Very deep, I know – but it happens sometimes. She slept 4 hours, did her business outside quickly, and then slept another […]
