Why is it that whenever Maalie comes to stay I end up thoroughly sozzled? Me on a de-tox too. We started off with Industrial Strength Gins and Tonic, followed by wine and then Weapons Grade Scotch Whiskey from Azerbaijan. Before we hit the bottles he very patiently showed me how to wiggle pictures on my blog, showed me how to put photos on a cd from 'my pictures' and then from my camera. I will now try to put in practice everything he showed me. Unfortunately I can't remember where the icons are that can change the size and colour of the print. I do hope he had sobered up this morning before he took to the road in his Twitemobile

Went into the Pound Shop today and had to grovel and do my impersonation of Uriah Heap before they would serve me. They were somewhat peeved about my description of their bubble bath and to punish me they made be buy a crate of it. Ann, you know what to expect for the next ten year's Christmas and Birthday presents. I also bought a toy for Badger and a toy for Allan. Badger's toy is a long, blue bit of plastic with a scoop at one end with a ball in the scoop. The idea is that you hurl the plastic stick over your head and the ball shoots out and goes miles. Only it doesn't, or at least, not with me. It sort of plopped a few feet in front on me. I did manage to get the hang of it by the end of the walk, but still can't hurl the ball anywhere near the impressive distances some of the dog walkers manage. Perhaps if I twizzle round a few times like an Olympic Hammer Thrower I could get it to go further.

I bought Allan a toy lion that if you press his tummy he growls just like a real lion! Badger loves it when I make him growl, and she growls along with him.
