two hundred posts
two hundred posts of chat, laughs and tears
i am so glad to be part of this blogging community

as is tradition in this land of ours i am of course celebrating this momentous occasion with a giveaway!

as Spring is in the air i thought i would gather some cleaning treats from my shop stock room......


a bag of the cutest bird pegs - sturdy enough for even windy Scotland!


a pretty wooden brush


and a selection of pretty washable cleaning cloths, heart shaped sponges and flower shaped sponges




i am sorry but i will not be able to include Miss Mabel in the giveaway.....

she is mine

i know this as her most favourite plaything is a tape measure!

Happy 200th post Tracy,
I think I've read them all, no not a storker lol just a good friend who misses her good friend from Kent, wish we'd met sooner.
But I'm so glad we did.

Have a lovely weekend sweetie.
Mabel is just gorgeous x for her little nose.

Hugs for her Mummy.

Please include Ms. Mabel... maybe not forever, but for a day. She is so lovely... oh well... I suppose I will have to settle for pictures and post- which I suppose that since you are now past 200 should not be a problem. I shall have plenty of lovely puppy pictures.
Congratulations on you milestone.
Cheers and thank you,
jen

How about I do you a trade? My stroppy old man collie who is desperate for a walk (the windier the weather the better!) for your baby girl. You probably wouldn't even notice - he is a similar colourway, with blue eye(s) and a waggy tail but I fear his ninja days may be behind him.

weebug said...

i am so glad to have you around in my blogging world. miss mabel has to be one of the cutest pupsters ever! right up there with mc dog of course :)

Hello from another lurker and congratulations on your 200th post. I visit your blog on a daily basis to read about your life here in Scotland and to get a glimpse of your fabulous pets. The photographs of McDog on the morning of his puppy class still make me laugh out loud.

Yes please, those bird pegs are just gorgeous as, of course, is the lovely Mabel. Congratulations on your 200th post, here's to many more.

Cynthia said...

Happy 200th! Loved looking around your blog.

Katie twinkles said...

It's a shame I can't have Mabel, especially as her name rhymes with 'Tinkerbell' my fabulous suggestion, but even so I think it would be so very nice for me (me me me) to get the little baggie of cleaning items as my house is quite, quite dirty and, being not the world's most enthusiastic house-wife it would aid me greatly in my endeavours and continuation of the great Spring-clean. I was aiming for two hundred words but, alas, have run out of steam......

Poppy Black said...

McDog is going to be surrounded by a sea of whippies! Isn't she the most beautiful thing ever? I love her eyes. Pleeese post a photo of Ghillie and the girls all standing together (if you can catch them). I want to see how big he is getting. You lucky thing getting a new pupper so soon after getting the magnificent hairy man. Now you are going to have to face puppy school all over again. Miss Mabel looks up to the challenge! XXX
