Pepe & Nina

This weekend we were dog-sitting Pepe & Nina because my parents had gone away to a wedding. We brought them up to our place and took them for a walk in Sefton Park, Nina loved chasing after all the birds in the fields! There was also some kind of cross-country relay race going on so we had to play dodge the runners & coaches at one point. The race was a junior race and the kids must have been about 13/14 and there were coaches shouting at them 'C'mon, only 2 more in front of you, keep it up! Keep this pace up!' and gosh, it was competitive! I am glad that when I run I only run against myself, to get personal bests, and not to compete against anyone else because I am the least competitive person ever (although I am sure that Scott would say otherwise...) 

I am just taking a quick lunch break from decorating on my day off, we are currently painting our bedroom. It is a lovely shade of mustard yellow with dark & light greys. It's loooovely and I can't wait to finish it and show photos off, but it may be a few more weeks yet.

  2. At the risk of sounding like a stalker... I must live right across the park from you!

    The dogs are adorable! Sefton's perfect for walking and running! Hope you're settling in nicely to your new home.

  10. Your dogs are just adorable :) Cross-country in high school was always unpleasant- I remember I'd end up walking it most of the time! I agree, competitive running is no fun- I'd much rather run at my own pace :)

  17. I just read another one of your posts and thought to myself, "How many tights does she have?" I love to wear dresses or skirts as well, but I run into the problem of never having enough tights, hose or leggings to wear underneath. What is the magic number? Do you stick with neutrals for the most part?

  18. Thank you for the quick response time, lol. 20 pairs doesn't seem like that many. I think my problem is that I only own 1 brown pair. I wear a lot of brown, so I need to step it up.

  19. I'm not competitive at all either. I think I was born without that gene. I can remember playing sports as a kid, and if we lost, really not being able to understand why the other kids were so upset (some of them crying). I was like, "we're still going to have a pizza party regardless, so who cares?" Haha. Can't wait to see pics of your new house! :)
