Here is my 4 1/2 month old puppy! HUGE! Clifford the big red dog comes to mind when I think about our puppy. Still one of the best birthday presents I’ve ever received and definitely the funniest. He’s a very good boy, still toilet training, makes us laugh, the kids love him to bits and all need to say hi to him first thing in the morning, last thing at night and as soon as they come in the door. He needs his first trip to the groomers for some trimming around his face but he’s such a fun big/little dog and look he even smiles for the camera!
Now I also have to tell you that I will be a little quieter than usual online. I made the decision about a month or so ago to stop ‘working’ on the blog and leaving sponsored posts behind. Life is so busy and newsflash….it doesn’t get quieter or easier once they start school. And wait until I tell you that I start homeschooling 2 of them next term. That’s a whole new post (or series of posts on that topic). It is the hugest relief not to have lots of emails to answer and deadlines and to just take a step back. I’m selling fabric and still doing the social media for the hospital and I love both of those jobs as they are small and manageable and don’t take over my life the way running a blog does these days. It had actually been my goal since little lawson came along but took a while to get there.
I still love my blog and will of course be keeping it here but it is just the best feeling in the world and the biggest load off my shoulders to go back to the very first years of blogging and just blog when I feel like it and stop the business end of things. So I’m still here, I’m so grateful for everyone who still follows along and look forward to having a bit more time for craft and doing the things I haven’t found the time for. I think someone else in the house is hoping I become super organised with the laundry but I think that would mean giving up the craft. And that’s not happening anytime soon!
