Do you struggle to find gifts for your doggy or moggies? As Freya Woof has been here with us just over a year we aren’t struggling for gift ideas. I made her a new bed, and a Christmas jumper, she’s got lots of squeaky toys and some “filled bones”. She doesn’t need a kennel, we only recently bought her new food bowls, she has a new coat, 6 or 7 Kong toys and a few kilos of treats stashed away. She doesn’t need anything, but she knows all about Christmas now. She has already been caught sniff testing wrapped gifts, almost like she’s counting up how many gifts she has so far. If you are struggling though, help is on hand thanks to MORE TH>N* and their lovely little pet present finder* app. (They call it an app, I’d call it a mini site.)
As you might have read I recently went carpet shopping as I am on a bit of a home improvement mission. It’s got to a stage where I just hate most of the scruffy old stuff in our home, for example old carpets or faded/tainted paintwork. I haven’t exactly got a plan to how I am sorting the house out, I just repair or update whatever is annoying me the most. A little while ago that meant fitting a new fire and tiling it myself. Now it is most definitely all about the floor. My new carpet is being fitted in early January which means I have a little time to find a rug that I like, is machine washable and goes ok with the new carpet. This isn’t so easy! As is common with me, I’ve been distracted by cute stuff. Namely this football rug* from Zurleys website.
