zac

This is a little tribute to my mum and dad's dog who died suddenly this week. They'd had Zac for 12 years, my dad having rescued him from a bad home. He was getting on a bit but, never the less, they are heartbroken, we all are. He was a grand little dog, so happy and he'd regularly come for a weekend away at our house... he'll be much missed. So, Zac, up there somewhere chasing cats and barking as much as you want, this little post is just for you. x

My daughter wanted a winter woodland theme for her birthday sleepover this weekend. I'm pretty proud of the cake that I pulled out the bag at the last minute. Thank you Betty Crocker for your chocolate icing, I love you and thank you to my xmas decs which hadn't been put away properly yet. Bit of icing sugar for snow and bob's your uncle! I even ordered proper real snow for the weekend too... six high pitched girls squealing around the fields and back for tea. Job done!

The sad story of the Tatler sausage dog and the intern in today's news has reminded me of a time when I once worked for a publishers and offered to take my boss's adored dog for a walk as I took the daily bits to post. I got all the way back to the office all happy, then realised I'd left the dog tied up outside the post office..... never ran so fast in my life!! Luckily he was fine and my boss was none the wiser.... unless she's reading this of course...in which case, erm, oops!

I feel the need to have a moan this monday! Do you know what really annoys me.... nasty people that hack your card details to try to steal money out of your bank account. Luckily they weren't successful and the good people at the bank spotted it, so ha ha ha to you!

Anyone know any? I really need some... my washing pile has gone epic!
