Busy bank holiday days

So another long weekend has been and gone, my last one till Christmas (I am on holiday for our August one) and for a change I actually did something with it.
Usually I spend it trying to sort the house,  see past 5 years worth of bank holiday, but this was different. This one had good weather and actual real life plans.

For starters on Friday I decided to treat myself, something I have started to try and do a little more these days. I am usually running round trying to help other people I rarely help myself so once in a while I like to give myself a break
So pedicure and hair do were my first port of call

Then Saturday I took the puppy out for his first proper walk. I think it was an experience for us all! But I did manage to get him looking like a seasoned pro

Sunday was a sophisticated affair, afternoon tea to celebrate (early) a friends birthday. It was utterly delightful

And Monday I took puppy out again to a horse show with a friend and her son. He was in his element being petted and fussed, puppy not son.
The hoses were on top form to, shires to yearlings and even the odd donkey or 2.
A great day out

Back to the grind today, oh well real life beckons

You know you’re a grown up when you admit you’re wrong

So last week I had to make a grown up decision. Nothing super major like a mortgage or getting married,  I’ve already done 1 1/2 of these things.
No it was another kind if grown up decision, to admit I was wrong.
So I’d finally managed to persuade my other half to get a puppy, don’t ask me how I’m still not sure!
And on a Friday vending a few weeks ago I went to see a gorgeous litter of Pug puppies, and fell in love with a little wrinkled bundle, paid my deposit and was looking forward to bringing him home.

Then the next day the breeder told me that all the pups were gone apart from 1, well for some reason my brain skipped ahead and said we’ll take him!

Jump ahead a few weeks and it was pup day, we collected them both and brought them home. First few days were manic as I’m sure you can imagine.
As the next 2 weeks passed it didn’t get easier and I had a flashof a future with 2 larger dogs constantly fighting and training issues etc.  At that point I knew what I had to do.
I had to admit I was wrong, that I couldn’t handle a situation, that I had made a mistake.
So I did, I told my OH that I was having second thoughts and I didn’t think keeping 2 was the best. 
Luckily we had a chance to return one, they were going back to breeders for their second injections.  I  told her that when I collected on Friday I was only going to ge returning with 1. Luckily she was very understanding.
So friday I collected my one puppy and brought him home.
It’s still hard work but at least we can concentrate on loving and training one with everything we have.
