Time Ticks By

Nearly three weeks ago

Time ticks by so quickly, I can’t believe its been nearly three weeks since little Teds accident.  I’m glad to report that he’s doing well, even though we won’t know for definite until next month.  He’s been entertained by Kongs filled with frozen peanut butter and some of his ordinary food.  To be honest I’ve never watched so much television, he’s allowed a little rest bite from his crate if we are sat down with him.  Ted is a Working Cocker Spaniel so I’m sure some of you’ll know what naturally active dogs they are.  He just doesn’t stop wriggling and he just can’t get close enough to us.  Ted definitely lives up to his name Teddy Bear.

This last three weeks has seen the coming and going of my enameled mugs.  I’m happy to say that they’ll be back in my shop this weekend after I’ve found another supplier of the mugs!!  Whoop Whoop they really are some cool ass mugs, and for a tenner they are such great value.
