I'm really excited .... Peppa is coming to visit today! Yeah, yeah... AND her humans! ☻
I am not sure how Coco and Teddy will react, so I'm going to put them in the playpen, that way no one gets hurt if they decide to take offence at a 'strange dog' coming into the house.
I know she is Coco's baby, but time passes and who knows how they will react to each other?
So apart from that visit, the day is earmarked for housework!
Oh... AND I will be taking Miss Muppet home to her Mummy around lunchtime too. We have loved having her for a bit longer this visit.
Here's a couple of photos from yesterday:
ABOVE: Auckland City skyline on our way home from Albany Mall yesterday ... I never get tired of seeing this sight.
ABOVE: ya ever think to look UP while crossing the harbour bridge? Well... I did. Can't say it was 'riveting'... but kinda interesting.
ABOVE: The Sky Tower... quite an interesting angle.
ABOVE: Stew last night, with no room left on his lap. He gave Keera the last of her bottle before she went to bed... and see Coco? Keera had her legs on top of Coco while she was drinking her bottle, and Coco didn't budge an inch!
Granddad's lap is very popular. *smiles*
Righty ho... I better get moving, make lunches, feed Keera, get some washing on... bla bla bla...
Do you get a thrill knowing you got ALL THE WASHING up to date, and that was with some really bad weather thrown in for good luck?
Well... I sure do! I got a massive amount of washing done over the weekend, and it's all sitting in the spare bedroom waiting to be folded and put away.
Great way to start the day's housework.
AMERICA'S CUP: we lost both races today. I've got a horrible feeling we will lose the cup in the next couple of days. Talk about a come back from the Americans! Power to them, they are racing well.
If we lose, I think thousands in our country will go into mourning, me for one.
PEPPA's visit... went so well! I will talk more about it when I get home... we are just popping out to return Keera.
ABOVE: Well... the visit was so lovely! It went a bit different than I had envisioned though. It wasn't Coco or Teddy that got growly, it was PEPPA! She didn't really like Coco ... but I think given more time they would have ended up playing together.
Peppa was really good with the babies, even gave Keera a few kisses.
ABOVE: the one thing that was sad... Peppa didn't really want to know me at all. I had to grab her and hold her firmly to get a photo with her. *sniff sniff* But the best thing was seeing how happy she was with Jenna and Gayle.
Gayle came over too... but I didn't manage to get a good photo of her.
My camera is playing up something rotten... I'm about ready to throw it on the concrete just to end my misery with it.
Once our visitors had left, we took Keera home and then stopped into the supermarket for some essential baby supplies.
Dante got to sit in the trolley like a big boy for the first time, and once he was over the strangeness of it all, he enjoyed himself.
The ladies at the check out thought he was just beautiful... and tried to make him smile. But, he was having nothing to do with them. He just gave them his classic "Who the hell are you?" look!
He's very CONSISTENT with THAT look. If he doesn't know ya... you just get the blank look.
I bet Gayle thought she had gotten away with not having her photo on here.... ahhh...
Lots of excitement in the house tonight. Will tell ya all about 'it' tomorrow. Probably won't mean diddly squat to you fulla's, but it's a biggie for us.
End of Day: Bex is sad. She put a loaf on to cook this afternoon, and it didn't 'work'. In fact, it is a disaster. I think her confidence has gone now. SAD. I will have to stand and watch her do it again, so maybe I can see where she went wrong.
But that will have to be tomorrow now, as it's too late now to put one on again.
