Mostly dogs

Its a secret for the kids but on new years eve a little english pointer puppy will be joining the Greatrex family! This is him at two weeks....

... And 4 weeks ( he's on the right)

So very excited and cant wait to see their faces when we go to pick him up in Leominster on 31st dec. but til then its is a big big secret so no letting on. We had decided on a pointer after discover dogs at earls court two weeks back. Kids brushing a canine mouth here, little do they know how much work is coming their way!!!!

We met the southern pointer association and O loved Ruby seen here. I am trying out names for our new arrival and will keep you posted!

On the way there and back we found a fab vintage furniture shop at Bringsty. Stokie Bloke liked the vintage vibe too surprisingly. There was some gorgeous stuff and all painted in Annie Sloan paint.

What a weekend, only topped off by finding 4 lovely Ercol dining chairs for 25 quid at a charity shop locally. Will be selling them on as they are worth a fair bit more!

Exciting tv moment

Just watching the young apprentice (not our usual viewing!) to see stoke blokes handiwork at the professional Kitchen. He took great pride in telling me that he had just changed all the light fittings on the very units we saw on tv this evening. That's my fella !

Mostly nigella

As you know I do like a bit of Nigella and I made this lovely ciambella cake as soon as I saw it on her latest series. It did not last long and was really easy to make too. Check out iplayer for the nigellissima series now for how to make it.

Mostly remembering

A little poppy made from leather scraps and a little pretty button. We buy paper poppies every year but lose or break them so this is more permanent reminder.
