Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence. Abandoned that and the videos are now back up and running.

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

My Host…

Missing dad already.

Well Andy, I ate enough for both of us at mum’s. A chocolate cheese cake has been frozen just for you and I’m sure mum wants you round as soon as possible. Your hound went past me when I came home to see if you were there; he didn’t fancy a walk and moped off to the sofa. We finely got out at 6pm and bumped into lots of Louis’ friends and foes. He settled down as soon as we got home; no play, no pestering with toys, wouldn’t have a smacko. Let’s hope he gets over his feelings of abandonment soon or I’ll get him to a shrink before he slips into a deep depression.

Can’t do enough for a good company…

It’s Easter Sunday, glorious weather for a holiday change and what am I doing? Folding shirts and packing my case as I’m off to Japan for our yearly design review meetings and a week of my feet dangling over the end of the bed.

It’s a relatively late flight out from Manchester; around 3pm and then off to the dreaded Heathrow for another few hours of waiting. After that it’s a 12 hour flight to Tokyo, then another wait followed by a flight to Hiroshima. I’ll leave the house just after midday and will get in the hotel around 9pm tomorrow night.

I travel back Saturday and will get home the same day for a change, albeit around ten at night. So I will lose Easter Sunday (and the second biggest meal event of the year round at Sue’s ma’s), Bank Holiday Monday plus next Saturday.

Louis is lying on the sofa looking at me – he’s seen the bags and knows something is happening. He’ll keep Sue busy whilst I’m gone

As the title says…you can’t do enough for a good company!
