Holiday Socialising (Whew!)

Hiya all,

Yesterday was ANOTHER big social day. We went to auntie J's in the morning for a "wood loading" BBQ. Strange I know, but auntie J had a huge stack of wood for collecting, and uncie W wanted it. So a few peeps agreed to help load the wood into a big trailer, and then auntie J made us a nice picnic BBQ lunch.

Here I am at the picnic. The little peep is auntie J's grandchild...... I had to get used to her because I am wary of little peeps.

Hey do I see some furry company?????

Yayyyyyy - this is Molly - she is a cocker spaniel and almost 4 years old. She got an invite to the BBQ too!

I kept tryin' to make Molly play - but she wasn't really interested in that.

She "tolerated" me ...... but it was a little hot to engage in running around play anyway. PeeS: Look at how BIG Molly's paws are!!

 This is Oscar - he is one of auntie J's 2 kittys. He was smirkin' at us because he was INSIDE and we were OUTSIDE.

It was a great day, and I got lots of pats and attention.....auntie J gave us sausages from the BBQ AND vanilla most favourite thing in the whole wide world!!

When we got home, we only stopped to collect a few things and my kitchen basket bed. We then headed out for ANOTHER function which included eatin' and drinkin' back at auntie Lynny's house. So I had three more fur pals to knock around with. I was curled up in my basket by the end of it though.

Whew - what a day!!!!

Mum is hostin' a little New Years Eve bash at our house tomorrow night. It's going to be HOT for the next few days so it will be nice sitting outside under the gazebo in the evening. We won't be around much to your blogs for the next coupla days because she will be too busy to switch on the computer. Today is "menu planning", shopping and cooking, with a little house cleaning thrown in. Tomorrow will be food prep and party organising!! I can't wait. I'll report back after the pawty!!

See ya!!

  8. Hi Rubie, Happy New Year to you and your family too. Sounds like you are going to have a great time. This hot weather isn't too good is it. We went for a very early walk this morning. See you in the New Year. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  9. Happy new year! We hope its filled with toys and treats and stuffies and cookies and tummy rubs!!! Love and kisses A+A

  10. Dear Rubie,
    Thank you so much for your kind words regarding Le Le. I will heed your good advice and take a good rest before I think about getting another furry pet, if ever. I am delighted to see all the fun you had for Christmas. You really partied till you dropped and that's what I call the good life! The high point of Christmas for me was lunch at my brother's place. There was a huge turkey which tasted good and he also had a doggie called Rio who fell head over heels in love with Auntie Tooki (no dog can resist my belly rub). He was so smitten he wanted to get inside my car when I was about to leave! I wish you, your Mom and Dad-Dad a year of peace, good health and prosperity for 2012!!

  11. Hi Rubie
    We can see you are enjoying a hectic round of social engagements. So long as the sausages and ice-cream keep coming...
    Happy New Year!

  12. HAPPY



    to you and yours Rubie!

    woos, Tessa


I do a Big Tail Wuggle when I get your comment!!!
