charlie goes grunge and betty goes bananas

Messing with Charlie because he always looks cranky and dark.



And Betty catching some rays. Because I know I always bitch and moan about how cold it is, and its not really. We have very mild winters. We have about three weeks where the days are about 15 degrees and the rest of the time is quite pleasant. Take today – even though its the middle of winter I can get around in a tshirt and cardigan and not have a heater on.

Anyway, Betty, she can always make a comfortable spot look uncomfortable. She sleeps on this old lounge seat.



But she likes her head to hang off the edge.



Then every now and then she likes to have a wrestle with her sheet. She gets it on top of her and wriggles around under it with her feet up in the air. Sometimes I find her walking around the backyard still in it because she's stuck.



And here she is just being her general attractive self. Sunning the tum.

hot soup and cold dogs

It is absolutely bloody freezing here today. And windy as well. I've just hung the washing and my fingers are cold and numb. And there's not a child around for me to find and put my hands under their shirt. Because thats always fun. And now I have to go for a walk down the street as I don't have a car. I'm wishing now I'd saved some of the tomato and lentil soup I made the other day to have when I get home. It was so good though I ate it to the point of exploding.



I was home alone so I ate soup and watched Gladiators. Anyway, one of the reasons I'm walking in the freezing wind to the shops is to buy Betty a water bottle. Daz saw something on television last week and they suggested buying old dogs water bottles to put in their beds at night to help keep warm. And I thought that was a good idea and can't believe I didn't think of that myself. Why do we never think of those simple fantastic ideas?

Betty says – hi, I'm cold, why the hell don't you idiots get me a hot water bottle!!
