Everything changes …

… and today is no exception.

I have decided that it is time for Sprout to become a “big girl” … and her cage has been dismantled and put out in the summerhouse!

To be fair I have only used it once in the past month when the boiler repair man was here and she was trying to jump on his back when he was sitting on the floor trying to fix the boiler!

I have been building up to today since the day I got her … my old dog, Brae, lovely as she was, could not be left in the house at all … which caused a wee bit of a problem when I had to pop out to work.  Thankfully my mum would take her.

Sprout is a completely different type of dog … although to be fair to her, it is because she is still a pup (6 months), and to be honest, just too much for my mum at 81, to handle.

So, slowly I have been leaving her out of her cage for short periods of time when I had to go out.  If it was for a longer period, my brother would pop in and let her out for a pee and now she is quite happy to be left alone for a few hours.

it was funny taking her cage down… stupid mutt was trying to get in it as it was being folded down and she followed me all the way to the summerhouse (and is standing outside the summerhouse looking in at the moment!) … thankfully she is not barking at her own reflection!

Let’s just hope I haven’t made this judgement in haste! …. time will tell!

Friendship reignited!

Last night I spent a long time on the phone with my friend Karen.  We are still trying to sort out a motorhome meet up in the Lake District for later this month but have been chatting about a couple of sites that would be suitable for us (and our dogs!).

We were good friends when I lived in Croydon and when I moved back to Scotland, Karen came up for visit in 2000… that was the last time we met up together!

Both of us couldn’t believe it was that long and a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then … as well (in my case) a lot of weight around my middle and my blonde streaks have turned to natural gray!

We have talked about some of the “old times” and laughed our heads off at the nonsense we used to get up to… we are older now, can’t say much wiser, but I’m sure that later this month we will be laughing our heads off once again!

Sometimes friends fall by the way, through no-one’s fault … just life and distance … but it is always there.   True friendship will always reignite no matter how long you are apart, because it is based on true care, honesty and trust.   Sadly, not all friendships are strong and people do come and go from your life forever, but that’s ok.  The one’s who are meant to be in your life will always be there, and I know I am lucky to have some wonderful people in my life.
