Lunch in the summer house (but not for Daisy)

Today my friend Lesley came for lunch in the summer house.  We first met when she had her lovely shop “This’n’That” in Totnes, and for several years I had a table at her Nostalgic Mix fairs.  Lesley hadn’t met Daisy before so the small furry one was made to promise that she would remember her manners.  (Ben loves Lesley, and can generally be relied upon to behave in a gentlemanly fashion!).  We sat down to a tasty lunch – quiche, salads, minted new potatoes and lemonade ….

 Followed by local strawberries, meringues and cream.  “Delicious,” said Lesley…

 “Where’s mine?” asked Daisy – totally forgetting that she was supposed to be remembering her manners!

 Daisy stared very VERY hard indeed at Lesley, but was destined to be disappointed ….

Far too nice to share with a naughty puppy!

  “MUM!  LESLEY! I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! YOU HAVEN’T SAVED ANY FOR ME!!  I am going to get into mischief for the whole of the rest of today!”  

And she did!  But that, as they say, is another story.

Back soon with your free Grandmother’s Bunny pattern – until then, here’s a peek at the September Magazine cover – published next week.

  1. Yum, yum in my tum (as my friends little girl says), not your tum Daisy, sorry. Thanks for a lovely day. XXX

  2. Look at that sweet face! How could you resist slipping her a little something? 🙂

  3. Sooo cute! Our 16-month old Beagle-Coonhound mix pup does this with husband. He will even lay his head on hubs’ lap and do the ‘pity’ stare after awhile. Toooo cute! Funny, too, since he’s really mama’s boy yet I’m stricter about feeding people food to him! Plus he’s with me all day so guess he figures he’ll try with his papa when he gets hime from the office each evening, ha! Pups are so fun.
