Wow, now I understand, Scroblene...

I can be hopelessly disorganised. Boyfriend hates it when I am running around the house at 7.45 saying "why can't I find a fucking bra?" or "where the fuck's my keys?" It's worse at certain moon phases. If I could just organise my desk....


Anyway, here is Pig. He is 15 weeks (nearly) and LOVING his walks. It has been a shock to my system but I have lost 3lbs already! Boyfriend can't afford to lose any weight so he has started having puddings again.



Here he is having a lie down.

Here he is enjoying some sunshine.

Fancy stopping having puddings.

Pig would like puddings. So would you.

What is going on?

Last read one of my books when you were thirteen?
New one is just off to the publishers. I'll send you a copy.

Newmania said...

Oh I just love him,.....we have two cats .....Pip and Jemimah.... We had dogs when I was a wee chap . Perhapos I will again we are out of London on the 30th ...

Scroblene said...

Lilith...he's great! How much bigger will he get?

I've found it easier to get up earlier, and if JRT wants to go out, then we do, if she doesn;t, we don't! Simple as that.

Nothing wrong with being untidy, but you've got the mouse on your desk an inch out of place, and there is no chair. There are no cables sticking out the back and the keyboard is bereft of crips and sauvignon...

I reckon this isn't actually your desk, and you're making that up!

I see The Baron has called by. Nice chap isn't he!

Lilith said...

HG, you live in pudding central. I remember the pastries in Florence like I was munching on them yesterday and it has been at least 20 years. Yes. Boyfriend needs pudding. He says "You are the Pudding of my Life" to me sometimes.

Lilith said...

No thanks, Jeff.

Lilith said...

Pups are as much work (for a couple of months) as your lovely Elliot, but with teeth and no nappy, Newmania. Is that when you complete? How exciting!

Lilith said...

Scrobs, I think we will have a collie sized terrier. His brother will be a terrier sized collie.

You are right. That is just a picture of my ideal desk. And no, there are no cables because Pig likes to chew them.

Not at all sure about the Baron.

Baron Archer said...

"Lilith...he's great! How much bigger will he get?"

Scroblene,
Thank you for the compliment, and I am full-grown.

Lilith,
I am having the new tome plain bound for the more socially conscious. If you are ever in London, I'd love to take you up the London Eye (it's my favorite).

Oh God the pastries in Florence. Oh God the hot chocolate in Florence. Mmmmmm blissss.

Pig's a delight, and as L notes making me even leaner and hungrier than e'er I was. Such fun to walk out in the morning dew; this morning, frost still on the ground and the mist starting to clear from the hills around. Odd having so much responsibility after having already brought up four splendid and now grown-up and left-home children. At times when we couldn't take him out, it was a bit like being locked up in a cabin with a deranged toddler, but now it seems a gift to have this responsibility.

He's sitting on my lap as I type, chin bouncing up and down on my right elbow :-) He's washed my ears for me, which is sweet, and generally given me a good grooming, which is handy as I am off for an interview in an hour or so!

I got me a blog, as this entry will show; nothing there yet. Patience!

Maybe I should get a dog then I too could start eating pudding again. Lots and lots of yummy, gooey calories laden puddings. At the moment, I have a cat and he just spends the day in quiet contemplation.

fuchsia groan said...

I would just like to add, I have never read anything written by Jeffrey Archer.

Philipa said...

Oh crikey I need a dog - a healthy option that would tone up this disintegrating bod and sooo cute. Bless. Elby you make mornings sound fab. I remember going to feed the horses at 6am before school and seeing the mist rising and the sun struggling into the day. Heaven. I felt like the whole world was asleep and missing the best bits. Best luck at the interview.

I have a black cat and am saving up for the broom.

idle said...

Neither my ten year old dog, nor I, can get into our old suits. But I'm the only one on the puddings (special of the day at Nicole's in Bond St today was Brioche'n'Butter pud with honey ice cream. Proper pud)

That pup of yours obviously has a bit of whippet in it, amongst the 56 other varieties, so I shouldn't think it'll run to fat at all.

Baron Archer of Weston Supermarkets had quite a few dogs, but I can't remember their names.

mutleythedog said...

Wonderful dog!! Walking is as good for you as jogging you know- all that stuff about 'burn' has turned out to be rubbish!!

Lilith said...

He IS a wonderful dog Mutley. He would love to play with you.

I think jogging is BAD for you. Walking is great, especially on a morning like this one.

Lilith said...

Idle, of course you are a pudding man ;-) Puddings don't like me, not the other way around.

Lilith said...

Yes Pip, but I don't think you need the chaos a puppy brings just at this point in your life! He has worn out two relatively time-rich adults already.

Lilith said...

Fuchsia, there's a time for contemplation and there's a time for busting your arse up and down hillsides :-)

Lilith said...

Mister Archer, I don't want your books.. your face disturbs me. I have never been on the London Eye but I don't want to go with you. Have you got a thing about Cheltenham Ladies?

The Hitch said...

Mr Elsby
When you say the dog washed your ears , was this with a sponge and soap?
If not remind me never to kiss your ears.
You do know where dogs love to stick their tongues dont you?
And so would I if I could reach

Crushed by Ingsoc said...

I wish we could have a dog, but It's hard to keep one in a flat and he'd be left alone for hours during the day.

Scroblene said...

Lilith,

Looking again at Pig's ears, I had to scour the internet to find out why JRT's ears stayed upright nearly all the time!

She seems to have 'prick ears', and some ridiculous canine purists say this is unacceptable!

B******s!

I say to all these stupid pedants 'Sod orff and get a real dog - like JRT and Pig'

Thought you might like to know!

Is that bottle within reach yet BTW? Just a few inches from the right hand is close enough...I'm nervous already...

Newmania said...

It is when we complete Lillith...looks like you`ve pulled Baron Archer

Elby the Beserk said...

Hitch,

I'm a firm believer that wallowing in dirt, germs and day-today bacteria protects oneself from nasty things. Witness the steady increase in allergies as society becomes increasingly "hygiene" conscious. We wouldn't have got this far if any old germ took us out; likewise, if dogs presented a danger to us there would not be the extraordinary bond there is between the two species.

And yes, aren't dogs lucky ? ;->>

The Hitch said...

The Hitchs trousers have also rcently become rather loose
Foresaking alcohol has had a dramatic effect
And Hitch is appropriate I have to keep pulling the buggers up to avoid loking like a white mr snoop doggy dog.

The Hitch said...

Mr Berserk
I will send you some of my old underpants, that should prevent from ever contracting MSRA

Elby the Beserk said...

Hitch,

How could I deprive a fellow man of his auto-immune system? I must, however, salute your altruism.

Tuscan Tony said...

Superb looking pooch! Is that blue thing in pic 1 his favourite plaything of the moment?

Elby the Beserk said...

It *was*, TT, a ball on a rope, now just a ball with some holes in it. We upgraded at the weekend to similar, but the ball is interlinked heavy-duty rubber and the rope much stronger. Still in one piece so far.

Sadly, Pig buried both the pigs' ears I bought him and which occupied him for hours at first - and now he can't find them.

Anyway, must walk the little fella and see what the day will bring
