My knucklehead is liking his new job! Its only been two days, and he is working very hard, but he likes it. He also got to spend Saturday with biodad and they had a lot of fun.
Last Friday at about lunch time, I went to fetch my Glugster from work and then we went to SAGA to fetch our Volt– who had been at kennels for a full two weeks! At the same time, we picked up a very special puppy whom we have named Riddick! You can read all about him on my furbabies blog! Ironically, Riddick was bred by the SA Guide-dog Association, but he was born without pupils in his eyes, so he is effectively blind. We have adopted him to be a part of our forever family! And trust me, you will battle to resist this face!!
Riddick and Volt are fast friends already! It has been so cool to have Volt here to keep Riddick occupied and vice versa!
This Sunday past was #WorldBakingDay, and I decided to take part as well- in the name of my alter-ego of course!! The aim is to bake a cake (or cupcakes), put it somewhere crazy, and then photograph it, posting it on Twitter with the #caking hashtag. I got photos of my cake in a few different places, but I think this one of my guide-dog-in-training puppy Volt, helping me out with some extreme “caking” is my favourite! He was so good! He didn’t even try to take a bite or get a lick in!
On Friday afternoon, I received a courier delivery from our dear friends Shebeeliciousness and her Jon. Instead of sending us flowers for the loss of our Super Nathan, they had one of our favourite photographs of Nathan printed on canvas and mounted for us. It hangs in our living room now. Thank you both. The picture contains a treasured memory.
On Saturday my folks popped around for a visit to meet the new puppy and we had a lovely afternoon, then on Sunday my in-laws visited us and- they brought lunch! We had divine mince jaffles with potato salad and a bit of green salad and enjoyed a little wine with our lunch! We haven’t seen them in MONTHS and it was so cool to spend the afternoon with them again!
We had a nice relaxed weekend. I had one cupcake delivery that my Glugster did for me while I waited at home for another order to be delivered. We actually managed to sleep late even with a new puppy in the house!
