Hello everyone! The festive period is now well and truly over; you cannot possibly handle another turkey and stuffing sandwich, gifts have been carefully stowed away and it's no longer socially acceptable to indulge in an alcoholic beverage before 10am. Despite being rather sore, I had a lovely (albeit quiet) festive period. I watched Tangled with my Grandma, who fell in love with Flynn Rider, unwrapped a Kindle - mega kudos to my Father, and indulged in two baths a day! I like to live on the edge!
I thought I'd get back into the blogging spirit by sharing some casual photographs from this morning's walk with the puppy. They're nothing special but they document things that make me happy as I go about my day, therefore, I felt I should share. I haven't posted any photographs of Woody since he first arrived so you may be a little alarmed at the size he has grown to - he is huge! It has been great to watch his personality evolve and take him for long walks in the countryside. He now has an affinity for the pom poms on my coat, investigating things that should've been deposited in red bins and chasing after teeny tiny dogs.
I was more than relieved that the people over at Chatham Marine offered to send me these practical, yet rather bloody beautiful, Andalusia Country Chelsea Boots to wear on muddy walks with the pup. I was incredibly impressed that they managed to protect my feet from the muddy fields, lake-sized puddles and occasional drop of dog slobber, whilst also being pretty lovely to look at. Luke was more than a little bit jealous when his walking shoes decided to let in all the water they could find, and I tried my best to not be a little bit smug! I definitely recommend them as a post-Christmas treat - especially if your dog walking shoes have seen much better days.
This early morning walk was exactly what I needed to clear my head a little. It was full of assignment anxieties, health worries and thoughts of this here blog, but running around after a cheeky little lab all morning made me realise that I need to stop putting pressure on myself before my head explodes! With this in mind, I'm going to go and settle down with my latest book and draft up another book review! I hope you're all well and do let me know if you like these teeny little snapshots into my life ♥
