Roxy, Paisley & Muki


So far I have managed to take a few pictures of the 2 dogs and one of the cats here.

Roxy has taken to sleeping on my bed at nights but so far has always ‘thanked’ me for not chucking her out by giving me a wee doggy bat.

Paisley usually just brings me her bowl as I am trying to get to sleep – her way of trying to get some food out of me. She isn’t as cheeky as Roxy so won’t hop up onto the bed.

Muki is a sweetie – she does let me pet her sometimes but she just goes about her own business most of the time.




So there they are – I will keep trying to get a picture of Puki but he is a shy cat. I highly doubt I’ll ever even get to see Uza because he stays in Adam’s room and apparently doesn’t like anyone in the house except for Adam (including the other animals).

Went to the dogs


As part of a football club promotion, we got tickets for free entrance to the dog races this evening. I’d never been to a dog race (been to plenty of horse races though!) and neither had my daughter. She had a good time. Before the racing began, she went through the card and picked one for each race. D placed her bet on the first race … and it won! Return for the £2 bet was £5. So we told her that it was best to stop while sh was ahead. But she enjoyed just watching and seeing if her other predictions had been right or not. To be honest, out of the rest, one won and the rest all came second! We didn’t stay for all the races though because it is a chilly night and the wind is quite vigorous. But for a free night out, it was good fun and if it ever warms up again, we might go back another evening.

btw: If you haven’t figured it out, I’m still trying to get my head around WordPress and Flickr so this is a work in progress!
