Sweet little Pingu!!!! My goodness, he's grown up SO much since the last time I saw a video of him. He has "eyebrows" now and I love his wee face. He does look cold! I keep my house at approximately 17 to 18 C all year long, so your poor dogs, and you would freeze to death here. Today is a balmy 25C with no humidity...yay!
(the house is still at 18!)
It was lovely to see Saffy again too. She has the right idea...stay curled up on the warm and cozy bed. The little bit of you that I saw Louise, looked bundled up for Winter here.
I'm sure if I grew up and lived in your climes, I too would find it very cold as I don't know how you manage days and days of 40C weather at a time.
I melt when it's that hot.
I actually thought it was your friend's Mother who was ill, and didn't realize it was her Father. Still, I am very sorry for her loss. It is very hard to lose one's Dad, especially when the daughter and Father are close as I was with mine. It will take your friend a very long time to find a "new normal" as I call it. Thank goodness she has you as I'm sure you are the one constant in her life on whom she can lean. ♥
I am glad to hear you had backed up some of your work on a USB key. I actually know what those are!!! I've become a titch more computer savvy over the past several months as my son Ben is studying Computer Programming and Networking Technology at College. It's a 3 year program, that has virtually no breaks, except a week or two off here and there. He has this week off before starting the second half of the summer semester. Every time I turn around, he needs something else for his computer, and I just recently purchased my first very own laptop!
Ben said the USB keys we found for $5.00 each was a deal so I bought one for each for both of my boys.
Yesterday, I purchased some cable that Ben needed, and also bought myself a new, wireless mouse for my desktop as I love the one I have for my laptop and my old desktop mouse feels gigantic and clunky now. Fuscia is my "new colour du jour"!
You did amuse me talking about the "boys in the Bands" and who's who! Clearly you like these young fellows.
I must be getting old Louise. That's alright....it beats the alternative!
Poor Pingu is going to need some outerwear if this "cold weather" keeps up! I'm sure you enjoy snuggling with both Saffy and Pingu in the mornings. Isn't it lovely to sleep in, especially the first few days when you wake at your normal time and realize it's a holiday and you don't have to get up?! That is the best feeling in the world...almost.
Enjoy your time off and stay in touch, please!
