Sports Day...'s

I was able to attend 2 days of sports. First it was Lyndhurst's (Pocklington's Junior School) turn on Friday, which is where Anna goes. Thankfully for the kids it wasn't exactly a scorcher of a day ... it was infact a little drizzly ... like I said, nice for the kids, not so nice for the older folks sitting on the sidelines! But it wasn't raining and we had come prepared, so it was fun :)

Anna did really well in her races. She came 3rd in the potatoe race and did really well in the 4x 100m relay! Go Anna-Millana ;p

And off she goes, in the green!

Waiting for the next one....

And on Saturday it was Pock's turn! This time, the drizzle decided to stay away...wonderful :)

Will had his legs all tired out at the end of the day. He did the long jump - in which he broke 2 records but unfortunately some other kid with increadibly long legs (and a fowl jump as far as we're conserned) landed a little further - as well as the 100m, 200m & 4x 100m relay.

We were also meant to be watching our other cousin's kids, Alex and Emilia, but Al had a migrane and Emilia had a black-board-eraser lobbed at the back of her head and couldn't run either! Poor kids!

Will with the batton running for the finish line!

Breaking some more records!

So a good time was had by all and that evening I headed off to a very festive braai with Henry and Sophie in Ferriby.

Nick and the kids went to the West's and here's a sneak peak at the direction that their evening went ...... and I thought that my night was good :) hahaha

We love you Chewy

Earlier this week we had to make the hardest decision anyone with a pet will ever have to make. You have to be totally selfless, even though you’re fully aware of the devastating consequences. I’m typing this with tears streaming down my checks and my nose running. Over the last few weeks Chewy had slowed down, he wasn’t his beansy self, but we knew this might happen and just took everything slower. On Tuesday we went for our walks, he ate all his food and got as many treats as he could. On Tuesday night, he climbed into our bed. His breathing was heavy, the lymph glands in neck had hugely swollen and he was struggling to breathe. He was disorientated and wouldn’t eat or drink. He kept wanting to go outside, but wasn’t able to stand. I slept next to him on the floor, in the other bedroom and came downstairs when wanted to. Eventually at about 5am we called the vet. She confirmed our worst fears. We booked an appointment for 7:45 that morning, we had a little time to say g

Dining room blues

We'd initially thought to give ourselves some time to live in the house before decorating, you know, to get to know the space and how it'll be used... two months in and the dining room is first up! It's pretty obvious, we're going to be eating in there! It was an easy decision (we both agreed with each other) the walls were going to be a dark blue, both have pretty much floor to ceiling windows next to them, so we weren't too worried about the space feeling dark.  Farrow & Ball's Hague Blue was our first choice... so we got a sample. And samples of Stifkey Blue , Drawing Room Blue and Pitch Blue , you never know what it's going to look like on the wall... although the colour samples are a pretty good indication.   With a sort of naughty-child feeling the sample patches were painted onto the wall. It felt quite rebellious just painting stripes onto the wall, clearly ruining the paint already there. But also quite exciting, taking the first of m

My darling dog has cancer

My darling dog has cancer About two-and-a-half weeks ago, on a Friday evening after the Husband had been away for work for the week, the three of us, He, Chewy and myself were sat on the sofa, having a catch-up. The Husband mentioned that Chewy’s glands (lymph nodes) were really big. A bit of back-story, he eats EVERYTHING! He has a keen eye for what we’ve termed a ‘poopsicle’ and happens to chance upon these seemingly tasty snacks rather regularly on his walks. He’s also partial to stale bread that some unwitting fellow has left out for the birds. Or the remainders of a teenagers discarded dinner. Let’s not mention the rotting snacks the fishermen leave behind during fishing season… I think you understand then, that we often have a dog with a bit of a dodgy tummy*. We’re no strangers to probiotics. So, obviously we squeezed probiotics onto his handcrafted meals, and kept and eye on what was going on. But coupled with the swollen glands, we called the Vet and they r
