Hibernation mode and puppies

Hello Bloggers

Well, here’s Monday almost done, after a lazy and laid back weekend.  Sunday was spent relaxing in front of the fire with a few glasses of wine, making pea and ham soup and hanging another batch of biltong.

I have been looking on the internet for a puppy and was disturbed to discover that there are so many scammers out there advertising non-existent puppies and offering to arrange delivery anywhere in the country. My first choice would be a Cavachon (an F1 hybrid of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bischon Frise). However I will also consider a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a miniature Daschund, a Bischon Frise or a Shih Tzu. If anyone knows of any breeders of the above in Cape Town please PM me.

We have not really done much lately except treat ourselves to a new TV with a bigger screen. My son gave me a tiny usb stick with loads of movies and series that he has recorded on it and it has been great to watch tv without the constant advertising interuptions.

This coming weekend we are taking Friday and Monday off to have a long weekend at our holiday house. As usual we will be going down loaded with stuff for the house, which will include a mini oven, a dining table and benches, a huge pot, a big gas bottle and the normal assortment of food and clothes. We have never had a dining table before except for the plastic ones so it is going to be a real treat to eat off a nice stable table, if you know what I mean.  It will be a weekend of DIY but that’s OK because DIY there is 100 times preferable to DIY at home as far as OH is concerned – no problem getting him motivated there at all.

I am defintely in nesting/hibernating mode with the cold weather, nothing nicer than curling up on the couch in front of fire. In the office Ozzy fights with my feet for better access to the heater 🙂 and drops heavy hints about lighting the fire. He goes up to the fire, front feet on the hearth and casts meaningful looks over his shoulder, as if to say ” Come on people, this dog is freezing his arse off in here”.

Wising you all a warm and wonderful week.
