12 Days of Christmas

This is the online photography course that I have signed up for, it's free which I think is really generous of Cheryl who runs the course. We get a photography task to do every day for 12 days, starting tomorrow. We also had a little pre-course preparation to do which was a festive self portrait, so here's mine!

And yet more...

Just to prove that I do take photo's of other things too, and not just dogs!

a few more favourites...

Hmmm, they seem to mostly be dogs!! Funny that...

Another weekend gone!

It's getting really close to the end of November, which means that Christmas isn't far away! I haven't done anything to prepare for Christmas yet, but I love doing my shopping in December because it has a really Christmassy feel to it.

This week/weekend has been filled with some quite mundane stuff that I'm not going to blog about, however on Friday I took one of my guide dogs up to London. I often take them on the tube from Richmond to Victoria to assess their reaction to the tube, however this was the first time I have worked a dog in Central London. My dog was a total star, she worked really well and coped with everything brilliantly although she was tired by the end (so was I!!). I love visiting London, we walked from Victoria Station past Buckingham Palace, all the way up to Oxford Street. I then stopped for lunch and walked all the way back to Victoria again!

Since I don't have any new photo's to post, here are some of the ones I consider to be my best. I have just signed up for an online photography course and on the application form it asked for a link to my blog.... so Cheryl, if you're looking this is the best I can do!!

Been busy...

...making chutney!

I've got a full shelf in the cupboard now, containing two types of apple chutney, red onion chutney and red tomato chutney. Some if it is for Christmas presents and the rest is all for me!!

Today was the second Winter League match. I've got a nasty cold and wasn't feeling at all well (that's my excuse for not doing very well!) but Cranbourne did OK overall, coming 2nd out of the 5 clubs which puts us second over all. Not bad... there's still plenty of time to regain the lead!

Maisie's visit

Maisie came to stay this weekend. She's my friend's dog and has stayed here many times. She came in, decided that she liked the cat bed in front of the heating vent, and she made herself at home! Doesn't she look comfy?

(p.s. the cat didn't mind.... he's gone off that bed!)
