I’m completely worn out! I knew what to expect when Scampi moved in and pretty much everything was put on hold while he learned to trust us. Knowing what to expect and knowing how it will feel are two completely different things – I’ve had two babies so I know this but I was still surprised πŸ˜€ As his confidence grew, he didn’t feel the need to be my shadow quite so much, but all this meant was that I had time to eat and do a bit of housework in peace πŸ˜€ Now, he’ll happily lie in the sun in the garden while I get on with things. Occasionally he pops in and checks I’m still around, then wanders off to chew a stick or find his ball so we can play. He also gives me a look which says β€œDon’t you DARE shut the back door while I’m out here” πŸ˜€ We have a routine now, and I have time to pick up my crochet hook and make something.


So, I DID pick up my favourite hook – I’ve had it for years and I have no idea where it came from. It’s just always been in my sewing box, unused. It says size 3.50 but I have a set of newer hooks – it’s a bit bigger than the 3.50 and smaller than the 4.0. So we’ll just call it 3.75 πŸ˜€ The basket of bits has been brought back out and put on the coffee table. The hook has been placed in the basket. And that’s as far as I’ve got.

      He’s relaxed 90% of the time. The other 10% – devil dog! lol!

        We’ve had Sam over eight years and she’s now a devil dog about 1% of the time! To begin with (she was a rescued street dog) it was closer to 80%… and the other 20% was when she was asleep.

    That’s a pretty good start πŸ™‚ I hope he doesn’t discover a love of yarn for toys…!

      He hasn’t – yet! I still put the yarn out of reach when I leave the room, just in case πŸ˜€
