Best & Worst: My Perky Puppies

I haven’t written a Best & Worst in a long, long time so I thought it only appropriate to start the school semester off with one about my own little funny family.

Worst: So what could be nibbling at my sleeves today, you ask? We arrived back from the summer holidays early Sunday evening and instead of facing the burden of yet another home cooked debacle, I opted to treat everyone to pizza and ice cream for our last shin- of summer digs. Walking towards the restaurant, my husband says ‘Oh, now that’s weird. I swear I parked it here when I Ieft to meet you and the kids.’ Hmmmmm….

What, pre tel, is he talking about?

‘What are you talking about?’ I asked.

Your car’ he says as he scratched his head.

Okay, okay, okay, breathe in, breathe out! Breathe in, breathe out! Breathe in, breathe out!

Certainly he’s not talking about the family wagon it took weeks to find. Noooooooo, not a chance, right?! That beautifully polished white one barely a year old? No-Ho-Ho-Ho not that one! Not my precious car…no, no, no, NO! Not her! We walked around a few streets and half joking he says, wouldn’t that be weird if it were stolen? Hmmmmmm….Ya think?!

Candy & Honey

BEST: Well, at last, I am back in the throws of school-mummy responsibilities and LOVING IT! Although I did have a fantastically challenging (based on fantastic adventures and a lot of bad behaviour) summer with my children, it was great to shove, I mean, ‘see them off’, gritted grin, wave et al whilst they ran up the school steps this morning.

I made arrangements with our puppies’ Summer Foster Carers, Cheryl and Deborah, to swing by after school to drop our book ends off – Honey and Candy. We have missed our beautiful pups so and cannot believe life existed without them for 2 whole months! How could that even be possible?

Oh, it was sweet music when I saw all 3 kids nervously jumping about and heard the delight in their voices as our Dachsund, Honey, and Maltese, Candy, shivered and whined back in excitement – thank goodness they remembered us!

But all too sadly both Cheryl and Deborah burst into tears when they knew it was time to say goodbye to their foster babies. To ease their burden of goodbye, I promised weekly visits and said the Christmas Holidays was already in our books and was all theirs!

Thank you Ladies for taking such great care of our babies!
