The Gorgeous One is very cute, and I have to accept that he is only less than 4 months old, but he can try my patience. We are going to watch a puppy training class this evening, (we can’t take Charlie because she is fully booked but we are welcome to go and watch), to see if we can pick up any tips. I have been watching The Dog Whisperer on Sky. Wow, Cesar Millan is amazing. The trouble is I have been trying to copy what he does and expect miracles to happen, and it just don’t work like that. I obviously haven’t mastered the art of being “calm-assertive”. And Charlie certainly hasn’t mastered the art of “calm-submissive”, not by a long chalk. I even bought and read Cesar’s book cover to cover, but unfortunately it isn’t a “how to” book at all. It is a very interesting and absorbing read though.
I think I have worked out how to add video to a post, so hopefully this will work.
We had friends visiting briefly at the weekend. Dave who was Colin’s best man and Huw who was an usher. They both trained as Clinical Psychologists with Colin. Dave came up from Reading and Huw from Exeter just to have a meal, stay overnight and jump back on a train at 9.30am the next day, a little bit worse for wear after a few drinkiepoos. Dave was absolutely chuffed when we offered him one of our spare Mighty Boosh tickets, so either he or we have to find one other now. And its still 10 months off.
Supernatural is back on ITV2. I have the episode recorded but haven’t got around to watching it yet. Can’t wait though, I have to see what happens to Dean after his deal at the crossroads to get Sam back.
On the knitting side of things, I am just decreasing the toe on my second Monkey sock. So hopefully there will be pics in my next post. The colours have pooled differently in each sock which is interesting as both balls are the same dye lot. I really like the pattern though and am just starting to get it in my head now that I have almost finished. But that means another pair may be on the cards and will hopefully grow quicker. I have some Lorna’s Laces in pruple and green that I am going to use for my next pair of socks, which I may just do plain toe-up.
Well I have 2 bookings for Reiki tretments coming up. The first is a friend of Colin’s who suffers with MS. I was supposed to see her on the day that Colin went in for his operation back in September and we have only just got around to rearranging. The second is a friend who is going to have a treatment to see what it is like and then maybe book some sessions as gifts for her mum and sister. Ooo, I’m a bit nervous but I’ll be fine once I get going. Wish me luck!
