Arlene and two adopted dogs.

Just a blog from someone who loves to communicate with other dog owners

Catch up

Hi all, Well, Christmas is all but finished, I hope yours was a good one, and if you didn’t get what you wanted, you got what you needed.

I had a very good Christmas this year, I went to my younger daughter Christmas day and my older  daughter Boxing day. the food was …. well just to say good, would be an understatement, I ate as much as I comfortably could and reluctantly refused any more, I know I will be thinking by about Thursday I wished I was back at the table on either day.

I had some nice presents, both useful and ornamental, and of course with a fine assortment of toiletries, so bath times will be a very pleasant experience.

We played Charades after dinner and dog walking, good for helping get rid of calories. I love Charades, it’s fun to watch the antics of people trying to describe stuff without words, but just how do you mime ‘Sex and the City‘ with a 13 yr old in the audience? 🙂

The weather was very mild making it pleasant to take out the dogs and getting around, but to-day was a bit different, with horizontal sleet, well I suppose it is Winter after all, at least the winter solstice has come and gone.

I’ve ordered a patio pressure washer to-day from Amazon, nearly half the price of the main store, I hope it does the job, My patio slabs are thick with moss on about half their length, as that side is sheltered by the large fir trees and never really dries out in winter. Not only does it look unsightly, it’s a bit of an accident  risk being so slippery. I’m looking forward to it coming though i’ll probably curse the extra work.

A little moan here…..why do the little price stickers have such sticky hard to remove glue, Peeling, rubbing and washing won’t shift it, all you get in the end is a dirty patch of sticky gunge, and if it’s on a pretty surface picture it spoils it, now if anyone has got the answer to cleaning that stuff off, I’ll be eternally grateful.

Well folks that’s all for now, sorry to anyone who’s interested by being a bit tardy with my blog, but like most of us, it’s a busy time of the year, but I’ll come clean and admit to poking around in Face book, shame on me.

So I take my hat off to Beth Marie, who has managed to do a blog a day for the month of December, So if you feel like a break now Beth, I’m sure we’ll all forgive you, not for too long though.

Lotsa luv from Me, tango and Ruby.


  1. Ya I’ve not been here much either. Reading, but not writng. Much.

    Try rubbing alcohol with cotten balls if the
    gluey patch is on a water proof surface. It is truly annoying that price stickers are so carelessly placed. But they are often placed with less care, because the sales people couldn’t care less.

    • 🙂 that made me smile Kirsten, and you’re right, they don’t care that their sticky labels are nothing but a pain, one particular store has their little labels designed for some reason to come off in bits, and it takes an age and a few broken fingernails to eventually completely get rid of them. thanks for hint.
