I should apologise on her behalf for the lack of posts from moi lately. Of course we all know it’s because I haven’t been allowed near the keyboard. She reckons I clog up the keys with my fur. What sauce.
Since she’s got herself into this sewing machine lark – between you and me and the mouse - she’s letting the writing slip. She might tell you otherwise, but that sewing machine has seen more action than her printer of late.
So far she’s made a dress, a baby’s blanket and two aprons (with a myriad of pockets – why do children need six pockets in an apron I ask you - unless of course it is to hide treats for Yours Truly?) and she’s now in the process of making a pair of trousers. She’s got a box loaded up with fabric, another box full of patterns and she can’t go to that Internet without a detour to the Remnant House.
She used to spend hours (not to mention £££) browsing on line for presents for me. Now it’s five minutes on Vet UK if I’m lucky; my powder, vitamins, chewies and food in the basket and Bob’s your uncle (or in my case the bloke round the corner). I dared complain about the lack of gift items in the parcels and yesterday something very worrying happened.
The postman arrived with a new parcel of dressmaking patterns and she showed me one which she said was for me. Who does she think I am? Barbie? Or maybe she's thinking of inventing a whole new character My Little Indy. Help! There are bathrobes with hoods, raincoats, T-shirts, jumpers and pyjamas. I have a feeling I’m going to start living a double life as a dressmaker’s dummy if I’m not careful.
Turned out nice again hasn’t it! She’s been taking me for my favourite walks down through the marshes to the beach.
Pity she can’t hold a camera straight. She took this one to show off my “clown” legs, well ha ha on her because all you see in this is the wonky horizon. And just because I have one brown leg and one white doesn't make me a clown. More sauce!
She took this one because she said it was one of her favourite things – sun twinkling on the water. And I always thought I was one of her favourite things.
