This weekend we went puppy sitting at Nick’s parents house. It was their 30th anniversary and Nick’s dad whisked his mum away on a surprise romantic trip to Florence.
At times it was a bit stressful juggling a puppy and a baby. Luckily Huxley seems to quite like Harry but he does get a bit frustrated if he licks him too much but generally they just chase each other around.
However, it was AMAZING having a garden for a few days. We were literally outside the entire time, apart from the few quick bursts of rain we had, and it was glorious.
On Friday I sat outside with my computer on my lap in my bikini getting a tan while doing some work while Huxley splashed away at the water table and the puppy ran around chasing butterflies.
Friday night was my favourite. Once we’d put Huxley down to sleep, Nick & I sat in the garden with a cup of tea and some Galaxy chocolate listening to music, snuggled up in big jumpers watching the sky turn inky blue and watching the planes blinking overhead. And I had a tiny sleeping puppy to stroke. It doesn’t get much better than that!
In the morning the light over the garden was just breathtaking. All misty and mysterious with big golden beams of light streaming through the trees. I slipped on my new, amazingly snuggly sheepskin slippers that were kindly sent to me from SNUGRUGS and took my morning cup of tea out onto the patio and just sat listening to the birds going about their morning routine.
Until Huxley woke up and destroyed the peace…
Yesterday our friends Lauren & Ben popped over for a spot of lunch and Huxley and Lexi had a blast splashing around on the water table and playing with Harry.
All in all we had a lovely weekend, and although it was nice to come back and sleep in our own bed again, I will miss being outside so much. If you could all cross your fingers for me to sell our flat soon that would be lovely, thanks!
