Its been a while since I joined up with this linky, so long its actually changed hosts! If you have not heard about it then, it’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in life – or the not so ordinary. This weeks ordinary moment is the new lease of life I’ve been given. Last year, we impulsively bought a pup. When I say impulsive I mean it. Mr B and I dropped the kids of at school one morning, by the afternoon we had a puppy in our arms. Totally unexpected and a “what have we done” moment sunk over us mid evening. Saying all that she has bought so much joy to our lives and has given me a new lease of life.

Its become an ordinary moment to drop G and H off at school and return to an over excited puppy. Somehow she now knows, that on my return we go out for our morning walk. One I really look forward to. I am able to clear my head whilst the pup runs around manically. I am able to breathe in the cold fresh air, and its something I have become to love. Those that know me, know I hate the winter. Fleur has changed my opinion, because actually the winter season is truly beautiful.

On our return home, we flop on the sofa, Fleur with my blanket, which she has taken quite a firm liking too, and me with a cup of tea and a cheeky biscuit. Every day is the same. We walk and we have a snuggle before I do my jobs for the day. She has given me a whole new lease of life. I would never just go out for a walk on my own before but she has got me out and loving the outdoors. They say a dog is a mans best friend, but she is no doubt this mamas best friend.


I am linking up with Donna over at What The Redhead Said for this linky. I am hoping I can join in weekly! One of many new years resolutions!

      Haha! I was shocked that we even came home with her, is was definitely the best impulse buy!

    Aww she certainly sounds like a lovely puppy to warm to. I miss the Golden Retrievers we had in our family. #ordinarymoments

    Oh bless her! It must be such a massive change having a puppy but a lovely one and great for children to grow up with. I always think dog walking must be so therapeutic too x

    I miss those enforced daily walks – like you say, such a great way to clear your head. I feel a bit like a walk without a dog is a waste!

      I would very rarely go out and walk on my own, so its been lovely to have a purpose to get out and enjoy the fresh air! Thanks for popping by x
