Hi my Wednesday blog-hopping friends. I almost didn't make it this week for several reasons. I usually prepare this post on a Tuesday evening as I always go out on Wednesdays, but last night we drove to a town about half an hour from here to see the film Les Miserables. I really wanted to see it as I have bought the CD which is a lot more meaningful now, and I love the music. We are singing the finale song as part of our choir concert this summer.
As you can see, we had to fight to find seats together!! There were seven of us, and maybe a further dozen folk arrived in time for the film, but that was all. It was easy to follow. The singing was all in English with Spanish subtitles, and what little speech there is, was dubbed in Spanish, but I knew what was happening, so it was fine. The film was amazing. I loved it. In true Spanish style, the cinema opened for a showing at 9.30 so it was almost 1.00 this morning when we got home! Hence no Workspace Wednesday posting.
Then today I went to my usual group, and when I came home I brought with me my two new babies.
Aren't they gorgeous? They are just two from a litter of nine pups that were abandoned outside our vet's clinic on Sunday. They are about three and a half weeks old so at the minute they need to be bottle fed every few hours, and as they already had a litter of eight abandoned last week, they just didn't have time to do it properly at the vet, so they asked for foster homes. I have these two for about a month, until they are feeding properly on their own, and are ready to go to new, permanent homes.
The little black one is a girl. She is strong and active already, and greedy too. She could be trouble in a week or two! The browner one is a little boy and he is smaller, less active, and reluctant to feed, so he will need more patience and attention.
And finally, last week I posted this picture of Arwen, and she was mortified when I told her that two people (one of them my own sister who knows Arwen well!), said they thought it was a picture of an oven ready chicken. I couldn't see where they were coming from at first, but then I realised that they were seeing the double layer of thick sheepskin that is her bed as legs, and then just maybe....
Anyway, Arwen has asked me to tell you that she is in fact a Real Princess, and don't you forget it!!!I'll try to have some real crafting on my desk by next week.
P.S. The mini album I showed the start of last week, is now finished, and you can see it if you click here.
Thanks to Julia for hosting this weekly gathering. I'll be round to visit as many of you as I can over the next couple of days.
