Yep, we are house-sitting again!!
I really like this house sitting gig - you get to feel like you are on holidays, explore someone else's book collection and enjoy a new view for a little while...and make new doggy friends! I never thought I would become so enamoured with dachshunds!!
Anyway, we have also been happily doing stuff, like going to see James and the Giant Peach on stage...which we nearly missed alltogether. As we were walking into the 12.15 performance I happened to glance at the tickets which said quite clearly: 10am show.
The nice ticket lady (seeing our crestfallen faces) let us sneak into the seats of some other people who didn't turn up....it was an adventure, and a good show...
Today we made toffee apples. Now I have never made these before and it's trickier than I had expected getting the toffee to the right consistency....but we did it. The boys thoroughly enjoyed impaling the bright green Granny Smiths and smothering them in toffee. And they look lovely all tied up in wax paper and brown string ready for the festival on sunday....
And naturally, we had to organise the pumpkins into various shapes and patterns as well as have a go of balancing them on our heads....And now the boys are OD'ing on Mythbusters and freaky science shows. I'm eating chocolate. The internet is FAST. It's allllllll good.
