Life in the Slow Lane

Sunday 17 April 2011

Well, I have survived Day 1 of the madness that arrives with my parents! We actually had a really pleasant day( why do I get myself tied in knots , thinking it will be otherwise?)

Dad uses an electric scooter while he's here, as his mobility isn't great ,so  the first job was to  get the batteries charged for that. Once we were certain it was ready, we headed off to the 'seaside'. We took Boo with us, as she likes a walk along the 'prom' too...there are always lots of other doggies to sniff and bark at!  

We had some lunch, sitting in the sun and then, Boo having lain under the table like a very good doggy, thought we'd better walk a bit with her. Off we set, DH walking with Boo as I (naturally!) was in charge of the camera. Next thing I knew I turned round too see this:

......the lazy little devil had hitched a ride with dad! She even did her socialising from there

So much for her enjoying a walk along the prom!

When we got back home, everyone settled with their books and dad got his first dip in the (much too cold for me!) pool.

I managed to get this LO done for a Challenge over at scrap-friendzy- the challenge was to use the colours from your favourite Easter candy/chocolate. As mine are the little Lindor eggs, I used red and white for it

Am looking forward to stopping by Mel's bloghop later, to see what everyone's come up with!

Thanks for stopping by!
Take care of you
