Hello. I have been training the dogs this week. I have managed to get Bailey to lie down, for a gravy bone in an afternoon.  I am amazed as he isn’t as daft as he looks and he can do what he is told, for a gravy bone that is.  I think this is the answer if I don’t win the lottery. I will become a dog whisperer.  I think the gold mining is out as my back isn’t up to it.  Being serious I only have 2 and a half weeks till I need to return to work.  I really don’t want to go back,


It’s been a fairly good day except we haven’t done much except watch Gold Rush and take the dogs a walk. It’s been relaxed and chilled. I have messaged may daughter a few times and we seem to be getting on ok, which is the best that we have been for the last 6 weeks.  It has lifted my spirits.  I think my Son has got a girlfriend.  He has been speaking to her all day on FaceTime.  He has now gone to a party with his two friends.  I feel a little on edge. He is my little boy.  I know he is growing up but not in my eyes.

Time passes too quickly. It wasn’t long before they were babies and now they are getting ready to make their own way in the world.  It’s important to cherish every moment with them.  Let them sit on your knee, enjoy reading them stories and watching childrens television with them as now they are like ships that pass in the night and they are enjoying life for themselves.

Right I am off it’s getting late and me and my boyfriend are having a disagreement as how to train dogs to lie down.  He is giving me his words of wisdom despite me doing the training, I said “who is it who has trained the dog to lie down? who? Me, now shut up and butt out”.  It’s all in good humour, but he is wrong and I am right as usual.
