A few of their favourite things…..

Theres nothing Barnaby Pickles likes better than sniffing, especially when he finds a hole in the ground, after calling him for a few minutes i discovered why he wasn’t respodning he had his head down a hole snorting and grunting, the result a very dirty snout but one happy Pickle.


Our Princess Miel Miaow on the other hand has more refined taste and would much rather spend her time amongst the Christmas Presents, glitter, sparkle and bows are a few of her favourite things.

Christmas decorations

Merry merry everyone, hope your all of your festive preparations are going well?

Ours started a few weeks ago when we bought our tree, which this year was so easy as we picked the first tree we saw as it was so lovely, in past years i have had Kev grimacing as i have made the poor tree person unwrap and show me 10 or 12 trees before choosing one, and heres the resulting tree in all its glory.


All the decorations are white, silver and crystal.


Those of you that know me will know that i love foraging for things especially greenery, so all my decorations this year are courtesy our local hedgerows, i now have a pair of secateurs permanently in my jacket pocket.
