Rain and Chinese....

It rained yesterday for a good six hours or so. I am sure the garden will benefit greatly.

Last night was our once a term ‘school’ Chinese meal. We used to do this when our village school was open and have carried on, just the four of us now.

We have a meal designed for three but there was still too much. Leftovers will be thoroughly heated through for our tea tonight.

After that, we settled to watch a dvd - Jumangi -welcome to the jungle. DB and I had watched it a few weeks back but neither of the others had seen it. I think they enjoyed it.

Ruby was a bit of a pain. One guest who loves dogs decided to sit on the floor with her. She got excited and became more of a nuisance, her ‘play-biting’ becoming a tad painful.

The more you discipline her when she is wound up, the worse she gets, just comes back for more! She got put in her crate and let out after a few minutes. After that, she was okay and settled down to sleep. It is the only thing about her, that irritates us beyond words and we have tried everything to stop it.

It use to happen once a day but is building up again to several times a day. I hope she grows out of it otherwise we shall have to seek help.


  1. I really liked that movie. Hopefully Ruby gets over the puppy stage of getting over excited very soon.

    God bless.

  2. Its funny about pets' habits. Our little dog barks till he is hoarse if he is left at home by himself yet quiet as a mouse when anyone at home. We were oblivious till the neighbour told me about it.

    1. Ruby for the most part is very quiet and only barks if startled. Mind you, she has a booming bark so good job she doesn’t bark constantly.
