Fed up pup!!

Firstly let me say a big thank you for all your kind comments on my previous post - foot is much better now!

Molly has started a new fashion in dog coats- wearing them upside down!!!! Well actually all is not as it seems - she has been spade and the 'upside down' coat is to stop her getting at her stitches! Its working well too but as its been soo hot she is getting very fed up with it! We are supposed to be keeping her calm so she doesn't pull the stitches - its like trying to keep Tigger under control!! Molly has two speeds, stop and go like hell!!!

O well only another week to go!

Have a lovely weekend - its supposed to get even hotter!

Have a lovely week!

Living on the edge!

This morning my lovely daughter asked if i could do her a favour - so of course i said yes. She then said could i bid for something on ebay for her!! She had been watching this item for a couple of days and the bidding was going to end whilst she was at work. Now i have never, ever done anything on ebay - but i thought it can't be that hard. So she gave me her details and showed me what she had been watching - a pair of these -they are dubarry boots and apparently cost a fortune - i looked at their website and couldn't believe how much they cost!! No wonder she'd looked on ebay.

So the closing time was half 3 this afternoon - i didn't bother looking until lunchtime and saw the price had not changed - so far so good! I was okay until it got to half hour before bidding closed - suddenly i started feeling a bit anxious and ever so slightly perspiring (that could have been because it was hot today!). She had told me not to bid until the last five minutes - i sat there watching the bidding - then at the appropriate time put in her bid - someone came after me, so i upped it! We are now 1 minute away from closing - it got to 30 seconds and i had already entered another amount ready to bid if someone popped in! I was the top bidder!! Then at 20 seconds to go someone else bid!! By the time i had entered in my amount it was too late!!!

I text Em and she was fine about it - she's done it all before so she knows the deal! I decided i'm definitely not cut out for this bidding lark!!

I think i need a cuppa and a lie down!!!
