Time for Tea on Tuesday, the day after Boxing day!

This isn't crochet related so it's on the Cazzytime blog.

On the subject of Quirky Crafts, we are hoping to resume challenges soon, but we need a couple more people on the team to make it work so please contact me if you are interested.

This was Sooty when he heard he was to get a pre Christmas bath. Legs turned to jelly lol and hiding in the corner furthest from me as the door was shut so he couldn't dash down the stairs!
 NOOOOOO, I don't want to go in the shower...
 this is horrible....
 ..getting dry is nice, I love rubbing all round the bed and furniture afterwards, and even like the hair dryer...
 ... all fluffy and dry, time to play with Pooh bear!

Sooty and I took a holly wreath up to the grave, but the new stone isn't there yet so only Shaun's dad's name is there, RIP my darling, and thank you for the beautiful card and present you must have arranged before you died, I wasn't expecting it and it had me in bits on Christmas day xx

I have another funeral to go to, my lovely aunt passed away after battling dementia for many years following the death of my cousin, RIP Auntie Margaret. It will bring it all back again.

Frogging with my niddy noddy (I love saying that).

Meeting friends on our walks....

 ...this one is a little shy....
 ...his friend isn't shy!
 Sunset, it wasn't actually dark but shooting at the sun did this, and blinded me for a while!
This crazy friend wanted his photo taken but never keeps still so it is blurred!

Boxing day - decided to get the clippers out...

...well they said it was mild....

...the reaction to the clippers was the same as the shower, but there is no escape...

....if I sitz on it she can't clip it.....

....whee, feels better now, and she has stopped! (As for mild, it was really cold out and has been frosty and icy since).

You were wondering where the tea was, well here it is, tea and turkey salad. Well it is T for Tuesday at Elizabeth and Bleubeard's place!

The best way to trim the underneath of the paws and to clip the nails - only possible with much bribery!

Sooty's daily carrot!

The good news is that Luna will be with us at the weekend, the hard work starts then! If you don't know who Luna is read the last post!


  1. I have so enjoyed seeing Sooty get a bath and hair cut. He's so adorable. I hope to meet Luna soon, too. Maybe it will be easier than you think.

    I would love to join you for a cup of hot tea and a wonderful turkey salad. It looks inviting. Thanks for sharing Sooty's antics, your trip to the cemetery, and your tea and salad with us for T this Tuesday.

    I'm glad I checked to make sure there were no T stragglers before I unplug my computer for the last time. At least I made it to your place before Wednesday (grin).

  2. I forgot to mention. Have a wonderful new year and enjoy the holiday.

  3. Sorry that you had so much sadness in this year, I hope 2017 will be much better for you. My Scruffy Dog hated being bathed, too - she would jump into dirty ponds, muddy puddles, rives etc, but the bath - horror! Have a good week, hugs, Valerie

  4. Oh Cazzy- you had me all choked up about getting that present from your darling. But I did love seeing all the photos of Sooty and the other pups. I have one who races for the shower and one who quakes and shakes. Sorry to hear about your aunt too. I hope 2017 is a wonderful and healing year for you. Hugs-Erika

  5. What a fun post, Carol, except for the gravesite. That had me in bits too. This must have been such hard year for you. I admire your courage and spirit. Hugs, Eileen

  6. Sorry I am late in stopping by this week.
    I do hope that the coming year will be a good one for you. Super photos of the dog hiding before the bath.

  7. As I have only managed to get here today I'm guessing that a very smart Sooty has already met Luna! Wishing you a much better 2017, Chrisx

  8. I'm sorry I missed your post last week, Happy T Day! The love and thoughtfulness of your darling leaving you a Christmas present had me in bits too! Sooty is so adorable and I'm sure will love Luna's companionship. Wishing you every happiness for 2017! Jo x
