Sunday - Belle's first full day

The banner arrived to promote Greyhound Gap and the walk, looks great doesn't it!

So first up I need to apologise to all my blogging friends if I'm not visiting you as regularly! truth is Belle is the final straw and I am struggling to find time to fit everything in.

Yesterday Belle let us know that she was not happy being kept in a crate all day, the exception being toilet breaks and then that's on the lead. I'm sure my arm is 2 inches longer already. I wrap the lead around my right wrist, well it's falling apart anyway and I have no intention of messing up the other one LOL.

Off to the vets Wednesday to hopefully have stitches out and maybe then she can have tiny walks. Considering all she has been through including being spayed at the same time the leg was plated I think she's doing really well, ear plugs are now a necessity around here LOL

Of course Elmo, Orin and Twizzle are getting away with stuff I would rather they didn't do but there is only so much you can do at one time LOL.

My brother and family arrived safely and  can't wait to see them today!

A few photo's of Belle taken around 6am this morning, so wish I had brushed my hair!

and on the deck before it got to hot! yes I did say hot seems Summer has arrived this week.

And just to prove how dumb I am I decided to make a cake yesterday as well, sometimes I seriously worry about myself. Lemon Drizzle and I was trying out a recipe. Marc is having a cake day at work as part of the fund raising, so thought I had better practise LOL

Sure hope Belle can get out of the crate more soon.

Cake looks yummy.

She's a lovely girl! Mum says she takes her hat off to anyone who is prepared to take so much on. She wonders how you cope! Deccy x

Lovely banner.

You are so special for all the hard work you and your family do for hounds like us. Please don't worry about not visiting other people's blogs. Those that matter don't mind - and those that mind (if there is anyone) don't matter.

Love and licks, Winnie

I insist you NOT visit me. Just take care of those babies and yourself and have fun with your brother & family. You and Belle both look beautiful. I am a little mad at you...I wasn't thinking of lemons at all until I saw that lovely cake of yours. The icing looks so good! Can't wait to hear about all the good times you have with your brother.
