Anyhoo, the past week has been a bit of a drag, I pulled a muscle quite badly in my neck and could hardly move.. it was such a pain especially with the pup jumping everywhere. Not only that but I couldn't get my housework done - which believe it or not really brings me down. I like a clean home, with everything in it's place... like at Christmas, I spend nearly the whole month of December going through cupboards (even those people don't go into) bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and living room... making sure they are spotless... why I'm not sure, I just like things to be in place.. So it was such a relief to be able to get the hoover out and clean :D hehe! I guess this would be one of my simple pleasure..
Now the puppy on the other hand this would be her simple pleasure ;) Give her an Avon box, a fleece blanket (which she dragged in herself) and the dog draught excluder, and she's delighted! (as you can see hehe) She's very much into cardboard boxes at the moment, especially ones that she can drag our clothes in from the laundry basket! Hubby and I have given up a few pieces of clothes that we no longer want to give to her, just so she has our scent with her at all times, we've even included something of the cat and vice versa just to get them used to each other...
We have to admit we've been very lucky with her, apart from the first night - which was really teething troubles as we've never had a dog before, she's slept very well and only whines when she wants to go to the toilet... which is a total blessing... Toileting too has come on leaps and bounds and we can now let her out without the lead on in the front stones (we have to watch as there is no fence as the road is right out the door.) I just find she does something new everyday... and I feel she's just like a baby - I guess this is what a mother is like with a newborn..

They're a mixture of ginger and some cinnamon ones. They taste scrumptious. The darker ones are cinnamon they look so dark because I sprinkled extra cinnamon on top - my hubby is a total addict of cinnamon. I followed this recipe and it was so easy. I made these for our post valentines dinner :) they went down a treat.

Louie is just not keen at the moment, I think he's too used to being the 'king' of the house, but he's taking it a lot better than we expected. Here is the wee monkey with a cheeky smile on his face, as you can see he really does think he's king, and drinks his water out of a glass lol, he is rather spoilt.
