back to work......


had to force myself to turn my mind back to work today - i realise how lucky i am to be able to spend everyday at home, such a different life from my days as a shop owner!

so.... back to photographing new hand made treats dispite the awful light

and trying to complete a little hand sewing with a pup hanging off my trouser leg....

the weather here on the tip of Scotland is odd - the sun was shining so brightly this morning so out went the washing
by lunch time we had a snow blizzard
it is however VERY cold, the wood burner is on the go all the time and the girls are refusing to leave the settee
i am of course staying warm with lots of tea and biscuits, refusing point blank to even consider dieting until the weather warms up !

thankfully one little guy seems equipped for the forcast of snow ahead......

a true Scottish gent!

who yesterday found he could bark
it scared him so much that he lost his footing and landed in a heap on the kitchen floor ....

practice, practice....
which is what he is doing today
the cats are not amused.

back soon

Hi, the weather has been exactly the same here one minute all fine and sunny and the next snow and lightning-- love the name Ghillie by the way he is so cute

Ghillie is so beautiful... and he sounds like a lot of fun, too. Hope the barking practice doesn't carry on indefinitely, though :o)

Nin said...

Ghillie looks very smart in his highland jacket and it's lovely to hear he's found his voice. lol even if the cats aren't inpressed, I'm sure you were.
I'm loving the cushion and brooch.
Stay warm honey and enjoy all the treats you can, they are very well deserved.
Big hugs.

He is just too darn adorable for words be careful with the cuddles though this boy is going to get a bit too big to be a lap dog! Although try telling that to my 3ft at the shoulder high lab/german shepherd cross and he'll tell you your never too big to be a lap dog.

Ck has just reminded me .... puppies farting. It is even funnier than finding out they can bark b/c the bloody thing sneaks up them!

I am laughing out loud just remembering it.

Jane said...

Ah, Gillie is so cute. Sorry i missed your last two posts. We've never had a dog before so thankyou for sharing your puppy/dog tales. hope the rest of the animals manage to make friends with Ghillie. Jane x

Tracy I don't know what to say, I've fallen head over heels with Ghillie. He is beautiful. So sorry to hear the plight of the other pup in the post below. Please give Ghillie a big hug from me

Awwww, Ghillie is adorable in that jacket. Well, he's adorable out of the jacket too, but you know what I mean.

Lovely makings too. x
