The threatened trip to the hair stylist for Rosie happened on Monday. Just a reminder, this is what she looked like!!!
This was what I was hoping for ....
.... and after 3 1/2 hours this is how she looked!
Yes, pretty awful - in fairness to the groomer we had let her coat get far too long and knotty! We have done some further cutting to even things out a bit and it will no doubt grow pretty quickly.
There have been a few adventures. The worst being the car breaking down on a busy dual carriageway in the most awful rainstorm. Some of my wonderful colleagues form work drove to my rescue and another one fixed it for me the next day! I am truly lucky to work with the wonderful people at my college.
A lovely walk by the river gave Tess her first opportunity for a paddle.
Dan was holding his own Olympics with a very successful javelin throw ...
... some lovely African starlings
and some rather plump guinea pigs and rabbits
I've started a new knit which I'm really enjoying. It's using my favourite Debbie Bliss baby cashmero in a very bright acid green. I just love the way this wool knits - especially garter stitch and I always love a cable edging.
I've also visited ebay again!!! Yes, my resolve didn't last long and bought some nice vintage print material. Not sure what I will use these for but watch this space. There some nice lace included as a free gift!
