In a wild rough and tumble greeting the boy and the dog went sprawling into the grass."
This is a quote from one of our favourite books The Whingdingdilly by Bill Peet. I am reminded of it everytime Rebe gets home from school where she is greeted like this...
Poor thing is too missed by Benny. He greets her like this when he comes to the school gate as well. They more often than not end up on the floor with Benny holding her in a vice grip shouting 'huggy huggy huggy'. I think she likes being missed so much, although I'm sure she wishes it were a little gentler :-)
I want to show you these wee breeks (scottish for trousers) that I made for Benny last night. They are a clothkit that I got for Christmas from my mum. Basically you get a big sheet of fabric with the pattern drawn on it, you cut around the appropriate lines, sew in the appropriate places, iron a seam here, add a pocket there and wow in half an hour or so you have really funky pair of breeks!
