A Busy Weekend.

I haven't been able to do any blogging over the weekend as we have been bus what with one things and another. On Saturday morning me Fallon and Tess went to flyball, Tess did very well at fetching the ball so Alison decided to try running her with another dog who is also a beginner. It didn't work out quite how it should as Tess watched the other dog fetch the ball and instead of running down to fetch her own ball went after the ball that the other dog just fetched but it was just a bit of a trial thing so there was no real problem with it. The good thing was that she wasn't bothered by the other dog being there so we can work on the ball problem. This Saturday the team are at a competition so there is no practice but we I think we will take Tess over to see how they get on and it will give us and her an idea what to expect. One of the dogs who is called Angus is hoping to get his 15,000 points during the competition so everyone her their fingers crossed for him and his owner Keith.

After we got back from Flyball practice I decided to cut the conifer hedge around our garden here at home. I've had enough of cutting hedges but I thought I would get it done as it was in desperate need of a trim. I always find it twice as hard to do anything in my own garden than I do at work. Anyway that took all afternoon but it's done now for another year.

On Sunday me and Vicki went down Nottingham way to my uncle and aunts diamond wedding anniversary. We had to leave here just after 11 and didn't get back much before 10 in the evening as we went back to their house for a while after the dinner at the hotel.

I didn't get chance to post anything last night because after work we had to go down to our own house in Derbyshire for a meeting with the builders who are going to be upgrading the house. It was just a matter of agreeing what they were actually going to be doing and deciding on a few things like tiles and where things were to go in the kitchen. We took Tommy with us for a run out as he likes to go for a ride in the car. He also gave the place the once over and approved the proposed alterations so that's good. Afterwards we went to my parents house for dinner, they only live a just a couple of miles up the road.

So that's about it really, I'm just off to take Tess for a walk now, I can't afford to mess around on an evening anymore as the nights are starting to draw in, you can soon end up in the dark if you don't get a move on after dinner.

Your family has really been busy this weekend and Tess sounds as if she is a real trooper.

Good luck with the remodeling of your house.

Busy is right! Glad to hear that you met Tommy's approval on the alterations.

Tess is doing great! I'm glad that everyone seems to be enjoying it so far.

Sounds like a busy, fun weekend! We've been in the middle of a basement redo, but Sage is more than happy to NOT be around.

I'm glad Tess is moving along with flyball. I bet she'll end up doing great with it!
