7th May – voting day. And aside from voting I mostly spent it working and then playing with the dogs in the garden. Buddy came to visit for a while and did some pro posing, something he never used to do for me! The flowers are all in bloom and the garden is starting to look wonderful…

Then Buddy taught Maisy how to pose and we tried to get them to pose together – but it didn’t quite work out…

7Aside from today though, I have been taking photos and sharing them on Facebook but just haven’t had the time to blog. I’ve been experimenting with ‘healthy’ cake. Or Healthier cake anyway. Cake made with fat free yoghurt instead of butter and sweetener instead of sugar…

And then I tried my hand at working with jelly for some ‘healthier’ type puddings. It sort of worked out once I ditched the yoghurt (pictured below) and stopped freezing it like a weirdo…

I missed a week of blogging, but I took photos so this will be a bumper edition of the weekly challenge! I’m not quite sure where time has gone since Christmas, but we’re already in Spring and it’s a bit of a blur. The last few weeks photos have mostly been Maisy.

We invested in an umbrella for the table, one with a fancy handle thing so you don’t have to struggle putting it up and taking it down! Now all we’re saving our pennies for is a BBQ for some hopefully warm summer evenings having dinner outside. Then our garden is complete!


We took Maisy somewhere new for her walk on Friday. She loves exploring on long walks, but even more than that she loves chasing a tennis ball. So we took our trusty ball thrower and within fifteen minutes she was…

It was a beautiful walk though, and a lovely warm evening – so nice to have some daylight beyond five PM as well! This was also the day of the eclipse – but typically this weather didn’t hit us until mid afternoon. The morning just went a little bit cloudy and dark, no sign of the sun until lunchtime!

There have been some beautiful sunrises, and sunsets. All of which have rounded off a day nicely. It’s great to have a reminder of beautiful things after a tough day…
