Bella the dogHello, hope you're well and having a great week. I couldn't resist showing you this photo I was recently sent. Let me introduce you to Bella, she's a huge QVC fan and particularly likes watching the Charlie Bears shows!

Her owner Debby often replies to my blogs and kindly gave me permission to show this picture. I'm not entirely sure if Bella is impressed with the photo I sent or not – maybe she's now buried it in the garden along side a bone! Thank you Debby, the photo put a big smile on my face! 

SpiderSpeaking of animals and all living things, is it my imagination or do there seem to be more spiders around at the moment? I've lost count of the number I've found around the home. My children love them. 

In fact, my daughter has a new pet and she's called him Tingle! He lives just outside her bedroom window and has constructed the most beautiful web. Tingle has been there a few weeks now and seems very content!

It's been a busy week at work but I have a few days off now this weekend. I'm planning to tackle the garden… wish me luck! I began it last week and soon realised that good gardening gloves are needed when tackling thorns and brambles!

I'll be careful not to disturb the stashes of food buried in the garden by the squirrels. They've been doing that a lot recently… is it a sign of a cold winter to come?!

Take care and see you soon,

Charlie x

    Hi charlie.
    What a lovely suprise I had when i put the new netbook on to see Bella there—-Thank you so much,[ I’ve told everyone she’s on your blog]. She had her 6 weekly groom this morning so is looking gleaming [ not for long though she’ll be rummaging in the garden]. NO she didn’t bury your photo in the garden [ she wouldn’t dare]. I nearly got the photo the other day [ except the sun was shinnning straight on the tv–I’ll get it ONE DAY.
    Have fun doing the garden [ that’s what I’m doing this weekend too].
    Take care.
    Love Debby and Bella say’s a BIG whoof.

    Hi Charlie
    Enjoyed watching you with Fiona this afternoon hope you get to try that vatamin C serum. You seemed genuinly interested in the products and were very entertaining with Fiona who I love watching as well. It was the photo of Bella on your blog that prompted me to write she is georgous you are lucky having such a beautful fan I expect some of your fans are human as well.
    Carry on the good work
    Take Care
