Here is my eighth weekly blog post to share with you all.

Dear Cherry,

Mummy and I have been very busy since I wrote last. Mummy's best friend Lynne made an unexpected visit to the Isle of Wight. It was lovely for Mummy to see her and spend time with her friend. They laugh a lot, at the silliest things.

On one lovely sunny day Mummy took Auntie Lynne and I to the seaside at Sandown. We went to Mummy's favourite Witchcraft and crystal shop and then afterwards had a lovely stroll along the esplanade. Auntie Lynne offered to buy Mummy a coffee and so we stopped at this little beach café.

Mummy and I chose a table where we could feel the sea breeze so I didn't get too hot.

When Auntie Lynne came back with the coffee's, she also had a little tub of ice cream - for me! Oh Cherry it was so good! It wasn't the yucky artificial Mr Whippy muck that's bad for doggies either, no, it was proper pure organic vanilla ice cream!

Mummy fed it to me with a little spoon so I didn't gobble it all at once and get muzzle freeze. That also meant it lasted longer. Mmmmm ..... yummy!

Once Auntie Lynne had gone back home, Mummy set about collecting more of her things from Daddy's house. It's a slow process as Mummy has so many treasures to pack up. But she now has her desk in the sun room next to Nanny's desk. My memory foam bed is now next to Mummys desk, so that I can stay with Mummy when she's in there.

Mummy has collected all her grown-up colouring books and pencils from Daddy's house and put them away in a nice drawer that Nanny emptied for Mummy to use. I sat next to Mummy on my mattress while she was knelt down sorting through her pretty things.

Then Mummy felt a bit peckish so she went to the kitchen and came back with Apple & Cheese! Yes Cherry, cheese!

Oh I had to sniff Mummy's plate. You know how I love cheese. Anyway, as you can see by the photo, although my nose got close, I didn't steal any. I waited patiently for Mummy to share it with me. It was lovely.

She tried to entice me with a piece of apple too, but I don't like fruit so I refused it. Well I'd better go for a snooze now. All this writing has made me quite tired.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Love & Licks

Who Am I?

Born and raised in Guernsey, Channel Islands, my first job when I left school was a Veterinary Nurse. However after 5 years of unsociable hours and being on emergency call, I moved into office work.

I was a Legal Secretary for the most part, but also enjoyed being a PA to the Chief Officer and Minister for Health & Social Services. I now live on the Isle of Wight where I work in a supermarket.

From early childhood I have always had pets. Over the years have been blessed to love two budgerigars, a hamster, a rabbit and eight cats (not all at once). Arik is my first dog and the bond we have is stronger than anything I have ever known.
