#WBOYC in November

 Once again I am linking up with Australian Deb to share what's been on my calendar this month

New wallpaper and vanity unit in the downstairs loo.  This is a project that has been on the cards for quite some time now.

I was a little sceptical when Paul said he could instal a new vanity unit along with all the associated plumbing issues but he's made a good job of it all.

Oh how tidy Coco and I both look after having our hair/fur cut and blowdried

Very enjoyable show from our local musical theatre group at the South Mill Arts Centre (used to be called the Rhodes Centre after Cecil Rhodes who was born here, but was controversially renamed recently in view of his history)We were amazed by how professional it was, we will definitely be returning for their 2024 production.

Evenings spent consoling Coco around Guy Fawkes night - she really doesn't like all the bangs. Also Eleven teeth removed when she went to the vets.  November hasn't been the best month for her!

Feeling a bit sorry for herself after her op 😢

Meeting up with friends three times this month - getting all those pre-Christmas meals in before everyone gets too busy!

Birthday celebrations for our Granddaughter Rosie who has had her fifth birthday this month.  She kicked off proceedings early, telling her teacher it was her birthday the week before it really was so she could sit in the birthday chair twice, cheeky!

Reminded of how ancient I am becoming by receiving a letter inviting me to apply for my state pension 👵 

So that’s almost a wrap for November, and here it is day by day, 1 Second Everyday

What a lovely recap of the month, apart from poor Coco's loss of her teeth. She's not looking too chipper in her festive photo, either!

Another busy month with lots of reasons to celebrate & enjoy cake. Coco's Christmas photo is lovely, she does look fully recovered from dental surgery (thankfully).

Hi Deb, thanks for joining us for #WBOYC and you have shared some lovely highlights. Your granddaughter was very clever getting to sit in the birthday chair twice :) that's 5 year old for you! It's always good to have gatherings before the season gets too hectic, we sometimes schedule get togethers for the New Year as it gets too hard to fit them in! Your hair looks lovely and hopefully Coco has a better month in December.

Your dogs are so cute. I'm sorry for Coco. I guess dogs don't need too many teeth to keep going. :)

Nice job with your hair/fur!
Sounds like a great month.

I love your new wallpaper! It's always so much fun to do a refresh. I also enjoy your month in one second photos. It's such an awesome way to remember the month.
