Working hard...

Sorry for the lack of posts and pictures but we are still around and working hard. We have been helping out DS and DDiL get ready for a house valuation. For 12 hours each day we are in charge of our three grand dogs - never realised how much they want to be around you, especially when trying to do things like gardening and sowing grass seeds. I reckon if we could have attached gardening tools to them, they would have been happy to help! We have now erected a small fence to keep them away from the lawn preparation and grass seeding area, don't want any seed related injuries.

Mind you, they are so well trained it isn't really a hardship to be around them. They have become quite good at interpreting our commands which are probably slightly different to their normal ones:) Also, they sleep a good part of the day as well which gives us time to do outside painting jobs where they need to be absent to avoid getting painted!

We get up around 5:45am with everyone, slowly wake up with a hot and strong cup of tea whilst they have a 40 minute walk. Once their mum and dad have gone to work, we begin working. Decorating, gardening, skip and shop runs are done each day. Actually it is probably a good practice run for any future grand children that might come along one day. Mum and dad return after a long working day (plus a long drive time there and back).

The dogs are fed and sorted out, we have time for a chat and maybe a bit of MarioCart racing, then we all retire around 10pm!

    1. Thank you. Just returned from an American style grill bar. Feel a little full despite ordering a 'small' meal.
