The trials & tribulations of moving house!

we have finally moved into our new house. A house that’s huge, bigger than anything I ever lived in before. It will be the perfect place to bring up our boys. We’re not planning on moving again for at least 15 to 20 years. We envision to possibly sell this place and move somewhere smaller […]

No social media February is over

hi there! So today is Sunday 1st of March. I’ve done it, a whole month with as little social media as possible.

Bye bye social media!

A dog is for life, not just for Christmas!


Merry Christmas everybody! I was going to write all about the thoughts, research, talks and visits to people with dogs and puppies.

I’m sitting here at the dinner table at my sisters house, my niece & nephew are playing with my boys which gives me time to write this! It is strange, don’t you think? One would assume that you have more contact with your actual parents than with your step sister ( from my dads 1st […]
