Found this in the old discussions. So funny, if you feel a little down ( your pup has just chewed a leg of your new arbour) just read it again had me in stiches. I passed the test but I knew I would as, I live the dream <:0))
hilarious and so accurate.......especially the garden bit at the moment...George is on a mission to destroy every bit of it!!
Frans...hope you don't mind but I have shared this...too good not to!
I hadn't seen this before...it is wonderful! But you have missed out the drool!
This is so funny and it so many ways so true.
I have a very large 4 seater sofa with large poof which was meant to be for me and my husband to lounge on in an evening with our 1st setter curled in the middle. So now we have additional 2 setters to the family and there is no room for my husband anymore !!
As for my poor garden !!
