Like most modern dog owners, I sometimes wonder about the food that I give to Toby. On the whole, we’ve just carried on with the diet he was originally given by his breeder, figuring “if it ain’t broke” – but the increasing variety of options available has often momentarily stayed in my hand as I go to grab a new sack of his #basic biscuits.

Time has really flown by, so I just wanted to share a selection of some of my favourite and most recent photographs I have taken of Roxy.
Charlotte and I met for lunch today which is always a lovely, if not rushed activity before we both have to hurry back to our day jobs. While the latest finds and beauty products are always on the chit-chat itinerary, we found that today we shared the guilt/reality of the fact that it’s been over a month since the last blog post went up, and we’re awfully sorry. I believe it went something like this:
