I hope you've had a great week. Can you believe half term for the kids is here…. where has the last couple of months gone? Flown by!
As I write this I've been tucking into a delicious hot buttered muffin and jam. It's all eaten now but I'm sorely tempted to toast another…. I will resist until the blog is written.
I'm also listening to a CD. I don't think you'll guess the title that easily. No, it's not the lasted Celine Dion release or Matt Goss (which I'm loving by the way!), it's actually a CD of sounds! Literally!
We're doing our best to prepare Misty and Bramble (our two cairns) for fireworks night. I'm hoping the CD will help 'normalise' the sound of fireworks for them. It's a great CD and isn't exclusive to the sound of fireworks. Planes, thunder and lightening, sirens, motorbikes and lawn mowers, plus many others, are there to entertain you! It's a great concept and I think will really help.
Speaking of the puppies. I say puppies, they're just over a year now – are they still classed as pups? I couldn't resist showing you this photo of Bramble eyeing up the cake I made when trying out the Bamix. Speaking of which – this is the montage my daughter put together when filming me prepare the mix for some shortbread… which was delicious by the way!

Not wanting to leave Misty out, here she is lounging in her favourite spot on the top of the arm chair. We call it her lookout as she is able to peek through the blinds and 'keep an eye' on what's going on outside. Ironic isn't it, we buy them the most lavish of beds and blankets but they so often end up in the most random of places!
I thought I'd introduce a new feature to my regular blog… Identify the picture. It's just for fun and I'll reveal the answer the following week. The close up picture could be anything from an everyday object to a cartoon character or a QVC product to wildlife.
I've tried this game on my Twitter before with what I thought were really hard pictures but they were very quickly guessed by so many. I'll reveal the answer in my next blog. See what you think?!
Looking at my schedule I have one of my favourite jewellery ranges this Saturday 26th October at 1pm – Links of London… Fabulous! I hope you can join me. Ooooh, and I see I'm on with EasiYo at 3pm… Delicious!
OK, that muffin beckons!
Take care and see you soon,
