Our Christmas, 2019

10th Gotcha Day

Today is Festus’ 10th Gotcha Day. The day before, we went to visit his breeder and see the kennels. It was quite unexpected to get there the following day and get Festus. It was not planned, but it was for the best. Initially I wanted to share a picture from each year, then thought of […]

Christmas 2018

On the 27th I usually talk about my Christmas. This year I’m going to share lots of pictures with the dog. We’ve started our day as usual, after the dog had his morning walk, by taking family pictures near the tree with our new Christmas jumpers. This year we’ve discovered some jumpers with an added […]

Last year I’ve made a post about 100 places I’ve been to, in the 6 years since I moved to UK. I thought I should make this a annually post, to see how many new places I’ve been to. This year I have 22 new flags on the map, most of these new flags are […]
