Yes, this could be my last post before Christmas, although as Terri pointed out I don't really have an excuse for not posting from home these days...
Work and school finish today, giving us a week to get in the last things we need for the big day. We have got all the main presents now and I think everyone will be getting stuff that they want and will enjoy. Going to add a few silly things just for the hell of it - I love silly presents.
My daughter played bass guitar at the school concert last night and did really well. It was funny sitting there watching my little girl play guitar like that. Going to have to encourage her to learn more now so she can play more interesting bass lines. Must tread carefully, though. She is very much like Mrs RC, wants to work things out in her own way without being pushed - push either of them and they push back twice as hard...
The puppy's name is now Frou Frou (90% of the time anyway), and she is doing great. She has her own food and drink bowls but refuses to use them, preferring to share Custard's. We put the food down and she immediately starts stealing bits from under Custard's nose. He growls a bit but she ignores him and grabs more.
The often play together now, with Custard laying on the floor while Frou Frou runs around, jumps on his head, nips his ears, etc. The really scary bit is when he lays with his mouth open and she puts her head in his mouth and licks his teeth! Will try to get pics/video of all this sort of thing over the holiday and will post them if they are any good.
2010 was a difficult year for us but we have no intention of letting this year's problems run into next year. Frou Frou has been a great distraction in this respect and getting her has been a great move. It is amazing the effect that 3 pounds of dog can have on a house!
So, time to sign off! Have a great Christmas and New Year! I hope that 2011 will be a wonderful year for you all, where ever you are and whatever you do.
Hope to see you in the New Year, if I don't manage to wrest a laptop off the kids over the holiday!
