New Year’s Revolutions

Hello again fiends,

Hope you all enjoyed Christmas. We had a great one; Mum and me were at Uncle David’s with it’s fantastic countryside nearby. Our morning country walks are frosty and foggy though no snow, so far.

Did you see or hear the Queens Speech on Christmas Day? I wondered if she’d been reading my recent blogs as, she was talking warmly about small acts of kindness and we’ve been talking about that a lot in our blogs!!

I will include some pictures of Corgi’s in future ma’am.

It’s nearly New Year’s Eve – a time to reflect on the last year and look forward to the next. Hmm last year…. my run in with that crafty snake sticks in my mind but, all the good fun I’ve had and meeting new fiends top that; making the new films for the second Adventures of Ragamuffin series that you can see on You Tube was brilliant and I’ve made new fiends all round the world via Instagram including; Meg in Wales who looks just like me!! And of course I spent time with my very special fiends here.

Mum and her fiends keep talking about making their New Year’s Resolutions – apparently, you decide things and plans that you’re going to do for the year and stick to them – though it seems a lot of folk only seem to do them until the end of January!?! And these Resolutions can be anything from; not to eat any more cake or pies, giving up that second dry sherry to something very big like a new job or moving house. Think Aunty Jules is going to do the cake one……again.

I heard on the radio a man that made a kindness New Year Resolution; he’s been kind every single day of 2016 and he’s going to do it in 2017 too. That’s brilliant – and he said it can be as simple as taking the time visit someone instead of just a quick hello, that little chat can really cheer someone up.

We’ve all heard in recent days of the many  kind things that the late singer/songwriter George Michael did. He kept those good deeds private because, you don’t need to be showy about what you do. From helping the support children who needed someone to talk to, volunteering at a homeless shelter to helping the campaign against puppy farms – he spread kindness far and wide.

 

Last year we helped out Pets as Therapy and visited our chosen hospice,  took part in charity walks and the charity show and my fiends and I helped pick up litter and we’ll do tons more things in the next year.

Have a think about what you can do, a tiny gesture to you but, can be huge to others.

Our Resolutions could start a Kindness Revolution!!!

Happy New Year.

Until next time

A Fun Week with Fiends!

Hello again evrybody! Mum is very surprised but pleased I’m doing so wel with my spelling, she doesn’t no that Auntie Ellie is helpin me an that I’m using spell check… which I think she mite think is cheating! Never mind, it givs me more time for ball chasing. Now let me finnish telling you about my Christmas nd the adventures I had this week:

Mum went to Church with the Royal family again on Sunday 27th December, she wos very happy and I had lots of games with George in the Queens gardn which I actually think is more fun than Church, but I’m not sure if I’m meant to say that. I go to Church evry Sunday wiv my Mum in a Church near us but I usually just fall asleep.

We travelled back home on Wednesday 30th just in time for New Year! But I didn’t do anything on New Year’s eve as we were so tired from all the parties we had been too at Auntie Jayne’s hows. We did however go for a lovely walk witch I think Mum really enjoyed I know I did, although we did get a bit wet.

This week we went up too sea my horse fiend CoCo. CoCo nd I are good fiends and she kisses me and says hello.  Mum went riding, although it seems to me as if they just go round nd round in circls most of the time and I just have to sit nd watch which is a bit boreing.  There is a new dog at the stables called Doug, he is just a puppy nd quite anoying as he won’t leave me alone so I ad to tell him off. The gd thing about seeing CoCo is that Croyde beach is nearby and I’m aloud to play on it. I love the beach!

We went round to my girl fiend Moja’s hows and we had lunch together.  Our fiend Buster wos there but luckily he wos much better behaved than at my partie. Auntie Wendy has a bird calld Thomas, which is funy because she is a girl bird nd she lays eggs, weird!  She is very ANNOYING and squawks and I think she is saying rude things to me as she tries to take my dog treets and she pecks me on the botom!  We had a good time and had sum cup cakes. The humans chatted and chatted, goodness nos what they find to talk about, although we dogs hear our names mentioned a lot.

Thomas the Bird

Mum was sad when one of her favourite singers died, David Bowie, people have said I look like David Bowie because of our eyes.

I tried to cheer her up with a song nd it made her smile and she patted my hed so I was happy. Here is a video of me singin, wat do you think?

I was very il on Friday night nd my tumy exploded and I made a very bad mess in our bedroom.  I was ashamed nd sat in the corner but Mum sed it was not my fault and we wud see the vet in the morning.  The vet wos nice and took my temperature… which I did not like at all. The vet sed that there was a virus going round and one dog died but he was a very old dog and I  did not have to worry because I was very fit and heathy.  We had to sleep in the sitting room and I had to stay in all day Saturday but I was allowed to watch television, which was excellent!

Mum said I hav to make a New Years Resolution so I said I wantd to play with more balls nd have more walks and eat more chicken.  Mum said that wos rather selfish so I said I know I will give all the treats I don’t like too poor dogs in the Dog’s Trust.  Mum sed okay not exactly wot she had in mind but along the rite lines, at least I was sharing. Do u have any New Years resolutions? Have u managed to keep them? Let me know on my Facebook page or on Twitter!

Think it’s time I wrap up guys, Mum is getting suspicious because I keep sneaking off. Don’t worry, she’ll never guess!

Until next time fiends!
