                           Today the post arrived and with it a lovely box of goodies.

                           I had been picked to receive some fab things  made by-

                                                                  Laura Quaglia

                                               From her Blog- Fun With This And That.

                          Do you want to see.

                          Laura had taken such special care to even match the wrapping to the presents.
                         So pretty. Also enclosed was a lovely card from her.

                                  The box was full of beautiful handmade gifts. Very pretty,
                                  perfect for me.

                                                   Two different angel wings.

A lace floral hanging.
                                                                 I love that Laura put her name.
                                                                 on it.

                                                  A rose wall hanging. in a gold glitter frame.

                                      And last a smaller one with lace, flowers and beads.

                                             So kind of you. Thank you so much Laura.

                     I thought I would show you what I picked up for my children.
                    As you know if you are a regular reader, that two of our dogs are
                    Patterdale Border Terriors, they are brothers. Charlie is my sons dog.
                    And Bertie is my daughters..

                    I found two mugs with pictures on which looked like their dogs.

                                        This one I thought looked like Charlie

                                                       And this I thought looked like Bertie.



                                                              What do you think.

                                                             My children loved them.

                       Hope you are having a good Wednesday.
                       I am still full of cold but I think it is beginning to go, fingers crossed.
                       I ended up having to go to the vets again yesterday. I was walking Archie
                       on his lead around our garden (in my jimjams). It started to get cold so Archie and
                       I walked in, and as we did Charlie came charging in, he could not stop so jumped
                       over Archie and caught him in the head with his back paw.
                      Archie did not cry but when I picked him up he would not open one of his eyes
                      An hour later he still would not open his eye and that side of his tiny head had swollen.
                      So a rush to the vets.  He was checked out and thankfully no lasting damage. He had
                      an injection for pain and eye drops.  Later on he started to try opening his eye..
                     And today seems back to normal. I still have to do eye drops and medicine in his food
                     for the next seven days. But I think he was really lucky.

                     So Myself and Archie are both just resting and trying to get back to full health now.

                                      So here are some more cute photos of him

                                  Photo shoot part three- Archie wearing his knitted green jumper

                                          This one was bought and it keeps him nice and warm.


                                                           Hope you have enjoyed.

               Today Sunday I woke up feeling really ill. Full of cold. And my daughter was the same.
               I had to go to the doctors this week with my daughter. She said we will
               probably catch something because everyone in the waiting room was coughing.
              And guess what we have. Anyway Hubby had to take her back to Uni. So I had
              to take son to do a photo shoot at the beach. Lucky it was not a bad day.
              We decided to go to Seaton and Downderry in Cornwall.
              They are only 30 to 40 mins from us depending on traffic.
              And because it is Winter are never that busy. Seaton has a cafe right on the beach
              which is open even on a Sunday. And now has outside seating which is great
              if you have your hairy friend(not hubby) dog with you. You can also take your
              dog on both beaches. So is popular with us locals.

                  I only took Archie with me this time as I did not feel well enough to cope with
                  the other dogs.

                         As you can see the beach is made up of  crushed stones.

                                  It was not too cold but still quite windy, so excuse the hair.
                                  Archie was in his blue carrier and wore a jumper and his orange coat.

                                                      I think he looks so cute with his hood up.

Archie even had a little walk.

I had to turn his hood over so he could see where he was going.

He has grown slightly.

                    Archie really enjoyed his little walk but when we got home he had a long sleep.
And me being ill had an early night as well.

Today I  thought I would show you some free goodies we received this week for our pets.
My daughter is also a blogger. She has been blogging for a number of years and has two blogs...

She found a company on twitter who are a delivery company for all things pets.
They wanted  people to review their delivery service and products. She told them that we have
lots of pets ,So they sent us this large box of goodies. Which contained dried and wet dog food,
rabbit food, dog treats and a Kong toy. It was fantastic to receive such a lot.
I am not going to go into any great detail about the company as my daughter has already done that. But I just wanted to tell you and show you the pictures we took of the dogs for the post.

                                                   This was the winning shot.
                                                   Archie is even licking his lips.


These were the best pictures and I can tell you we took hundreds.
Our dogs look like well behaved models.
But do you want to see what really happened!
It was really hard for them being that most of it was food.

              I used all sorts of things to get their attention and try to get them to face towards the camera.

                                                       One of my felt flowers seem to do the trick.

In the end they all behaved and it only took about half an hour.
And they had their reward of trying out the new food.
Archie got the puppy Kong toy .
Don't worry I cleaned my table before we had tea Ha! Ha!
