I 'Ad a Good Weekend.......

Gone.

The Weekend's gone.

Leisure Time, wind-down time, gone.

Just like that........

It was a good weekend, though. Saturday Beloved, Scorpa-Boy amd I drove to Newie. GG stayed home, partying with her friends on Saturday night, and hanging out on Sunday, furthering her withdrawal from family activities. She says, that the highlight of her weekend, and her friend, Jason, also went to great pains to tell me this, was their visit to the very hallowed (evidently)......rear workings of the kebab shop. BestiePat works there, and they waited out the back for him to finish work on Sunday afternoon. Amazing what tickles someone's fancy.......

Vegeboy arrived home from his school excursion on Friday night very tired and cranky, and adamant that he was not travelling anymore, so he spent Saturday night at a fellow wrestlemanic's house, and visited another of his wrestlemanaic mates on Sunday. When we picked him up last night he was sniffling, snuffling and snorting and very keen on going to bed. I have kept him home from school this morning as he still seems a little worse for wear. He is happily reclined watching the first, and most likely, the second and third series of "Scrubs"

We called in on the in-laws, who have retired happily to Elermore Glen, and it was lovely to see them. They are lovely, gentle people, for whom the glass is always half full. We are now caught up with the family comings and goings. They are currently babysitting my sister-in-law's, gorgeous West Highland White Terrier, Bonnie. If you're after a fab fur-kid, and don't have cash issues, then a Westie could be the dog for you. She's not overly high maintainence, has a fun-loving temperate, and isn't too big either. She's so cute!!!

The biking boys headed off into the wilds of Stockrington for the day with a group of other biking nuts, and enjoyed themselves so much that any ideas of driving home from Sydney after Homebake next Saturday night, so that Beloved can go to work on Sunday, have been shelved. More biking next Sunday too!

I had a delightfully quiet day with my mummy,; I didn't even get dressed until lunchtime. I sorted throught the Christmas gifts that she has purchased so far; she has done well, and only has a few more to buy. Which is the total opposite of a certain Blogmuggle, who really hasn't given it all too much thought at the moment.

The absolute highlight of my weekend was the visit to Clarencetown last night on the way home. I had looked on the Hunter New England Health Website Message Board for the first time in weeks on Thursday, and there was a female boxer to GIVE AWAY!! There was a notation that said dog had a penchant for fresh chicken, though.....After discussing it with Beloved on Saturday afternoon, I phoned and enquired about her, and made arrangements to view her yesterday afternoon. We were only the second people to phone her owner. To cut a long story short, we have a beautiful new fur kid at our house and her name is "Clover". She is 2, small for a boxer, and an incredible sook. She fits right in with us. I really don't want to leave her at home... I know that there will be an adjustment phase, and probably behaviours that we don't like, but so far, everytime someone looks at her, she brings a smile to their face....She doesn't seem too concerned about the cats so far...but they don't have feathers or fly....She has the same colour markings as Tessa, was born the day after Jack's birthday in 2004, was microchipped the day before my brother's birthday, purchased by her previous owners on Elly's birthday, and was tended by vets at Scone. Rhys was upset that there was no link with him, but then I discovered that she had been vaccinated on his birthday.... We're not sure if we'll stick with "Clover"; already it has been shortened to "Clo", and then "Cloey", so I think she may end up being called "Chloe" by us. I don't think it will make a great deal of difference to her. They reckon that dog's hear "Blah, blah, blah, CLO. Blah, Blah, SIT. Blah, Blah, Blah, BED." This afternoon, I will transfer her registration into my name; there is no way that I want to give her back; I am totally besotted with this canine already. This morning, Beloved showed her where I was in bed, and in the shake of her tail, and in an older boxer, that's short, she was up on the bed giving me a morning cuddle and smile. Even Tess didn't get quite that friendly! I don't have the camera at home today, but as soon as I've taken some photos, I'll post them, and I promise I'll get over my new obsession very soon, and stop boring you.

Anyway, that's a wrap!! Have a good week.

Love to you and yours
The Blogmuggle. ;)

Yay! I love boxers, they are toooo cool and drool very nicely, talk a lot and have google eyes, bestest dogs ever. When we eventually in a hundred years have no ugly bloody staffys I will get another boxer for sure. Our Bolly used to like fresh chicken too! and blue tongues unfortunatly, and budgies......
