Bank Holiday TGIF

It's Summer Bank Holiday here today and the sun is shining, the temperature is high and we have things to celebrate this afternoon so without further ado, here is my take on TGIF

that baby Max will enjoy his first visit to Nanny and Grandad's house this lunchtime.  Four weeks old and he's never met Coco - we are counting down the hours to him arriving.  Will also be nice to see his mum and dad but we all know who the star guest is don't we?

to other members of the family for inviting us out this weekend.  Normally everyone comes to us so it's been a very nice change to be the guests!  Yesterday we went to Paul's cousin's house for his annual get together for Paul's dad's side of the family.  Paul is an only child and his Aunty Ruby had three sons with one almost exactly the same age so they used to spend time and go on holiday together.  As time has gone on people have moved from the area and lost touch so it is really nice to spend a day with them all.  Later on today we are going to Rachel's house for an early birthday tea for a certain young man who will be three later this week.

I've got the urge to decorate and I have two rooms in mind.  Which should we do first?  Dining room or bedroom?  Every time I do the housework I notice more knocks and bumps to the paintwork in the dining room and we have discussed what colour we want in there so I think that will win out in the end.  I just need to keep mentioning how tatty it is looking ...

I'm sure there will be fun later this afternoon involving balloons and birthday cake.  We're having to have early celebrations because the birthday boy is off to Peppa Pig world for his actual birthday - how lucky that his other Nana and Grandad live very close to the theme park!

In other news, it's nearly 8 years since Coco arrived on the scene, so we had to do a photo comparison between now and the day she came home from the breeders, she's ageing well!

Coco looks fab for her age (lol). In a blink of an eye it all changes so quickly. I'm sure you are going to see changes already in Max at 4 weeks. You certainly have an enjoyable Bank Holiday planned.

Coco is an adorable dog (and as a puppy) - was she prettified in time for her meeting with baby Max?
