I have not been good at blogging. I shall try to be better at some point. I have been considering an imaginary on dinner party in a very serious manner due to bizarre application forms so I shall put ramblings about that on here very soon hopefully.
For now, we have our puppy! She is not called Bella. She is, in fact, called Holly. She is very lovely but sadly wants to chew everything at the moment, especially my feet. Here she is…


On another note. After going through a phase of not really watching tv at all I seem to be pretty much hooked on two things just now. X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing. This is a somewhat tricky combination when they are both on a Saturday night and I tend to spend most of my Saturday nights working. Hurrah for iplayer and youtube and all things that allow me to catch up on the world.

I very much enjoy this unbelievably cool man, Olly:

I’m not sure how many agree but I hope at least some do as I would quite like to keep watching him. Please.

I appear to be back in university land these days, starting third year! Scary, scary. It goes far too quickly. It all seems a bit manic at the moment with huge reading lists been given to us and hand-in dates popping up already. Another alarming thing is that we are constantly being reminded about summer placements, work experience, careers and in the past I have tended to get by quite happily ignoring all of that, thinking it was quite some time away. Not so much now. I shall look upon it as an exciting venture maybe.

Lawyer? Maybe. Hopefully.


In other news. We are getting a puppy very soon. She shall be a liver, flat coated retriever. She doesn’t have a name yet although I am calling her Bella for the moment. I don’t think anyone else is keen on that name. Our other dog, Rowan, is a black, flat coated retriever and she is lovely if a bit over friendly for some people. It is hard to get a picture of her without a ball somewhere in the picture so she ends up looking quite ridiculous but oh well. Here she is:


So yes, I like dogs and I am very, very excited about the puppy action! It was probably the wrong time in life to embark upon reading “Marley and Me” by John Grogan. I never went to see the film partly because I am rubbish at remembering to actually go to the cinema and partly because I had heard about the tears situation. I thought by reading it I would avoid any sort of public humiliation. The book actually made me happy more than anything. Dogs are wonderful. It sounds silly but they make lovely pals and if you are a dog owner reading the book you totally appreciate that. It made my soul light up a bit.

Gosh. Lots of dog chat. Not sure that mixes too well with the lawyer chat earlier.
