Quick update

Goodness, where do the days go?

I've been trying to do a catch up on blog reading, but I'm falling so very behind. Then I feel bad about doing a blog post myself. So I think in order for me to move on, I may start reading afresh tonight and not panic about catching up.

So here we are; May already. I often worry about time flying and I'm not achieving much, but at the moment, I'm just happier that it means one day closer to summer.  I can't tell you, how fed up I'm getting at trying to toilet train the bears in the garden when its raining and cold.

Still, we're getting there ... they are without a doubt. GORGEOUS.  A bit of a handful to say the least, but with the weather getting better, it means some of that puppy energy is being released in play and these two can chase each other around the garden for hours.

April, was a good month, I started my organisation (only to find the draw dividers I bought were too small). We had some hot days which meant summer clothing. The bears went to the groomers, not to be groomed, but to get used to the noise and smells. Their first cut is happening later this week.  Also, we finished at puppy school, which to my embarrassment, just after Bertie got his rosette, we were asked to leave as he wouldn't stop barking!

 April, also bought me a new haircut.  I had a good couple of inches chopped off and much prefer it. I may even go a little shorter at the next cut.

There it is, a quick catch up from me today, while the bears are sleeping.  I will try my best to blog more and not leave it so long. I even managed a little scrapbooking at the crop last week, so you never know a layout might be shown soon.

Thank you too, for all the lovely, lovely comments I had on my last post.  It really does mean the world to me to have such wonderful friends that understand and accept me. xxx

  3. Yep..just do what you can when you can. We're glad to see you whenever. Your hair looks gorgeous and I like your outfit too. Everyone is laughing at me here because I put on woolly tights with my dress this morning. And now the sun has come out

  4. Thanks for the update. The puppies are just adorable. Wish I was nearer to come and have a play! Love the new haircut (and that splash of coral with your navy outfit xx) see you soon xx

  5. You are looking very stylish Sandra, and I really like your hair. I know what you mean about catching up on blogs, leave them a few days and it takes a while to catch up. The bears are looking adorable as ever, and it will get easier.

  6. What a lovely collection of photos. The bears are growing so fast.
    Love the new hair.
    The grown-up colouring books don't seem to be suitable for alcohol pens as they do bleed through a bit. However, there are some books out there that only have designs printed on one side of each page so you wouldn't have a problem with those (I would suggest a sheet of paper underneath just as a bit of protection).
