    As threads are going walkabout I thought I would start the next stage of this off - I will try and do the links later!
    Must use my stash up!

    Ooh gosh - seems this thread was on page 2!!

    Everyone seems so busy... - we've been really busy over christmas and NY and then went to Tenerife for a week (I know, it's a hard life). The weather was fab - 22 degrees and sunny. 22 degrees is my old favourite temperature - it's now 25, but I wasn't complaining... Also lovely that it didn't get dark until 6.30.

    back yesterday and spending the day today getting the house straight after the kids were in it for the week.. They don't seem to know how to wash any clothes (despite both being / having been at uni) or throw out food that is going off

    Back at it tomorrow and raring to go to get my PhD finished. Deadline is September so i am now counting down....

    Three meet'n'greet visits done last week (that's where we invite the owners of new doggie clients over, with their dogs, so that we can meet, have a chat about the dogs' routine and needs, and generally ensure we're all happy for me to look after the dogs) and I've got three definite bookings out of it. Not bad going! So we'll be having 1) an elderly Bearded Collie and her Cockerpoo Puppy companion, 2) two snowballs Bichon Frise, and 3) a beautiful big black'n'tan crossbreed rescue dog staying with us at various times.

    If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion.

    It looks as though you are going to be busy LW. What is so lovely is the number of return visitors you have. It must be reassuring for the owners to know that they can enjoy their own time away without theworry that their dogs might be pining.

    Nothing much happening around here except that the pile of filled boxes is growing and we still don't have a definite date for exchange of contracts. The solicitors don't seem to share our sense of urgency.
    I want to be in before the really bad weather starts.
