I enjoyed a sunny and warm bank holiday weekend working with Paul in the garden when I got home from Canada before having to head back to work…. Our patio is now extended and just a few touches are now required to finish it off. It looks a lot more spacious and there is most definitely a lot more sun now. Here is Paul having a break from the work with Stella.
When I got to it, work went by seamlessly enough but I was pleased to finish off the week with a trip to see Robert, Andy and the pussy cats on Friday night after a day in the office in Warrington.
The weather wasn’t quite so amenable this weekend, unfortunately. Rain both days – including for the Oxton Secret Gardens day on Sunday. What a shame for the organisers and those people who had put great efforts into making their gardens look fabulous. We had planned a BBQ with Jayne and co for the day so that ended up becoming an indoor affair. But checkers, puzzles, baking and hide and seek made for an enjoyable time.
Stella started her “intermediate” agility class last night. She spent some time at the beginning of the class saying hello to the other dogs as well as making sure I didn’t say too big a hello to them…. She behaved well enough after a 3 week break and did some good jumps for me. She seemed pretty tired at the end of it too which is always a success.
In other more functional and practical news, I bought myself a new (well, new for me) car. It’s actually older than the car I traded it in for but it’s an Audi so a much better car all around and with it being a diesel, the fuel economy should be good too. I’m excited because it is an automatic and it has very low mileage so it should do me for a good few years…. And in answer to Annalie’s most important question about it, it’s “dolphin grey”. 😉
I’m out for dinner with Helen and Harriet for a catch up session in Liverpool before picking Brent up at Lime Street on Thursday. He’s up for a weekend of camping. Fingers crossed for the weather. Fun, fun, fun.
