Meet Holly



I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and have recovered from all the indulgences of the season.

Ours was good if hectic with upwards of ten each mealtime but it was lovely to have all the family together for a few days.

I thought I would share a picture of what Santa bought........well she arrived today actually, we have called her Holly, she is a yellow Labrador, seven weeks old and seems to be making herself at home already.

I have been really good over Christmas and didn't even switch my computer on for a couple of days, not that there was too much spare time anyhow but as a result have lots of blogland catching up to do over the weekend.

Sarah at pretty Little Ribbons has a great sale under way on her web site here so do pop over and grab some bargains.

Have a good weekend everyone and everything going to plan I will be catching up with you all shortly.

Rapidly doing my sums - she must be the 7th canine friend now in residence. She looks absolutely delightful. You must be holding something very interesting by the look of her wrapt attention - unless she's into photography. Gllad you had some good quality family time.
Much love

Holly is just gorgeous Brenda. Why is it that every Labrador pup is the sweetest, cutest pup that ever lived? I really have a soft spot for Labs. We've had my daughter's 2 here this week as well as our own. Our boys love spending time with them. They're both lying flat out tonight after a few exciting days!

Take care,

Kat xx

Thank you for your vist, Brenda, and a very Happy New Year to you. What a wonderful addition to your family with the arrival of Holly. I am afraid I was still crafting first thing on Christmas morning, with two cards to finish off at the very last minute, but after that there was no crafting done here until yesterday. Really suffering from withdrawal symptom now. xx Maggie
