Misty and Bramble turn five!



Brrrrrrr, there’s a definite chill in the air isn’t there! I think it’s fair to say summer is behind us but this time of the year is one of my favourites. The leaves are falling and we are spoilt with the most wonderful array of colours.

If you feel the chill when it comes to bedtime do take a look at our Cozy Home bedding range. It’s amazing. Then of course there’s the flannel range from Northern Nights. A real bed time treat!

I had a brilliant time taking care of Alison Keenan’s Diamonique show on Tuesday. It was a fabulous hour and if you didn’t manage to catch the show then the entire range of beautiful Diamonique can be found online.

This week’s blog is dedicated to two of my dearest friends and companions. Misty and Bramble my adorable Cairn Terriers!

They’ve just celebrated their 5th birthday and I can’t quite believe where the time has gone?

The memory of collecting them from the lovely breeders feels so recent. We are filled with the most magical of memories which we will cherish forever. I’m sure there are many more to come 🙂 and a few mishaps too for sure 😉

It should be noted they are mischievous and cheeky every single day but then that’s why we love them so much but they’re truly loyal, loving and friendly too.

After a late shift at two in the morning I’m always greeted with a wagging tail. I’ve lost count of the number of socks which have gone missing over the years and the hidden shoes and slippers not to mention the number of times they’ve managed to sneak up onto the dining room table!

Holes in the lawn? We have plenty in fact I think I could open a small crazy golf putting green if I wanted to!

So many wonderful pictures to choose from but these are some of my favourites.

I thought I’d share this little video clip with you as well.

We had a fabulous day out on their birthday with a glorious walk in the countryside followed by some of their favourite treats when we got home.

Happy Birthday Misty and Bramble!

See you soon,

Charlie x

    Crikey Charlie, I remember when you talked about getting them, it certainly doesn’t seem like 5 years ago. They are adorable, I think they look like little bundles of naughtiness. ? I love to read your blogs as they always bring a smile to my face.
    Happy Birthday Misty & Bramble.
