I am so ready to wave goodbye to Winter now. As I type this the puppy is insisting on going out into the garden, leaving the door wide open behind him so that he has the freedom to come in and out, in and out, in and out. Don't get me wrong, when the sun is shining and it's warm outside I would love nothing more than to be able to give Lux this kind of freedom and let the warm breeze roll into the kitchen. As it happens though, It's February and it's cold, and that cold wind is not welcome in my cosy space while I work.
It won't be long until the days are warming up and we are finally able to get back outside again, I look forward to being able to take the laptop outside and work from the garden. April is perhaps one of my favourite months of the year, it's starting to warm up, the days are brighter and it makes me want to get outside the most. Last year I was getting up at 6am and heading out for a run, by the time I got home the sun was blaring and everything just looked beautiful.
Now I have Lux we do spend a lot more time outside, rain or shine, but when the weather improves I will want to be outside as much as I can be. We spend quite a lot of time at my Parent's home while I am working because their garden is so big, it means the dog can burn a bundle of energy while I get on with my to do list. I keep thinking how lovely it would be to help my parent's do up their garden. I keep looking at the garden selection on Fishpools as they have some gorgeous pieces. I would love to surprise my Mum with one of these Rattan Sofa Sets, it would make the perfect place to sit in the garden with my laptop and watch the dog do laps of the garden.
The garden is a area that has such huge potential, but no one has ever really had chance to do anything with. We all like to get out there, but I know that if we could get on top of it all, there would be even more reason to bring the BBQ out and make the most of that time in the year where we can sit outside and enjoy the great outdoors.
Keeping this puppy of mine entertained really will be so much easier once I can leave that back door open, or better yet go and sit outside with him. Currently he is in the process of taking whatever he can find out into the garden. He is like a magpie and gathers a collection of things he likes, underwear, bras, tea towels, paper that he shreds, plastic bottles that he likes to chew until they are ready to be recycled.
That puppy certainly keeps us on our toes but we wouldn't be without him.
