It is with regret

That I announce the annual 'Putting away of the sandals and flip flops' has happened. I am back in boots. I think I can account  for 87 and a half percent of my current grouchiness to my feet being besocked and encased. Although my favourite boots in the world are like putting slippers on. This will be their fifth year. I should have bought two pairs. I big pink fluffy heart them. 
I love how I match my bedroom radiator! 

Freddie says he'd love to update you with his antics but he has only got little paws and the typing fatigues him. Plus he is back in Newcastle now, so could I possibly regale his fans for him?! Cheeky boy!

Here he is fast asleep on the settee. 
Doesn' t he look so comfy?! I was ready to go to bed. I just said 'Bed Freddie' and down he got straight into his crate. He's so clever! 
I taught him how to 'roll over' so that's now added to his repertoire. But wait until you see this next pic. 
The instructions go..
Sit 
Down
Wait 
Wait
Wait
Waiiiit
Wait
Go on then!! 
Now I don't know about you, but I'd not last too long if someone put the human equivalent on my mitts! Maybe a couple of rolos or something! 


These are not rolos, these are delicious and nutritious chicken liver training treats that are gentle on the stomach! How amazing is Freddie?!! 

He was also playing a game of 'choose the toy' 
Miss 22 would ask 
Where's the pig or where's the ball and he'd identify it correct every time - until I videoed it! We tried to give him a choice of three but by then he was high on delicious, nutritious, gentle on the stomach chicken liver treats and got giddy! 

Here he is with said Pig. It grunts and it's hilarious watching him play with it. Of course it was me who got it! 

As promised, here are two of my create and craft purchases! 
That's the bag kit, was about £13 I think. Which for the Liberty fabrics I'm assured is reasonable and this sweet book full of sweet makes! 

 Just now need to find some time! 

Lots of love from

  1. I'm back in my slipper boots now rather than my indoor flip flops but I haven't got the big boots out yet....just my sturdier shoes.
    Oh Freddie..........isn't he the cutest little boy.
    Love the bag kit. I must get around to using some of my bag patterns and some of my gorgeous fabric but I have so much on the sewing list at the moment.
    I'm on the lookout for some books on felting and making things with felt but have been instructed by DD not to buy them but bookmark them so they can be sent to Santa....lol-x-

  2. So the signs of autumn are officially here. Personally, I love boots, so I don't mind when the weather tells us to wear them. Freddie's pig toy looks like a hoot! -Jenn

  4. Jeez! you made me jump for a minute there when I saw the heading of your post!!! I thought you were going to leave us! Hang about a bit I have to calm meself down!! However on the other hand I do indeed perfectly understand just how you feel about having to put away your sandals. I so hate closed in shoes .....its something like the old Chinese foot binding tradition....grr!!

    I so love Freddie ...he is adorable!

    keep well

  6. I'm so glad your family is around you, saves you sitting at home worrying, and you have sewing to do.

  7. I can't think straight when I've got socks and boots on, it's as though they're squeezing my brain. As soon as I get through the door off they come and either the slippers or flip flops go on.

    Freddie is very clever with all his tricks. The more I read about him the more I'm inclined to think Wendy might not have been the runt of the litter physically but I'm pretty sure she was mentally.

    Love your crafting kits especially the Little Lady book. Have you got somebody special in mind? xx

    2. Ha! Ha! that is funny!!! I have to admit I always feel rather dull and doh when wearing socks and boots too....so it would be the squeezing of the brain syndrome then....sounds about right!!!

  11. Gorgeous fabrics.

    Still wearing sandals whenever I can. It's raining today so I might wear my boots to walk to the charity shop but change out of them when I'm there, just for a bit of foot freedom.
