Let me introduce...

Here is my little Bellatrix, also known as Belle!!! She at times does resemble her name sake and is a little madame but generally we are getting along OK. Isnt she just a darling????

She is now eight weeks old and I think that she is starting to settle in. She has howled and howled but for the last few days she has started to settle down and is fitting in quite well.

My son wanted to call her Tinkerbell but I couldnt see Andrew shouting "Tinkerbell" in the park, neither can I hear him shouting "Bellatrix" which is why we settled on Belle.

I think she may be turning into a pampered pooch !!! Have you seen the stuff you can buy for dogs these days?

I have been so bury recently and there has been very little for me to blog about. We have spent today in the kitchen baking yummy cakes. I got to spend some time with my dear daughter and we listened to some Andrew Lloyd Webber in the background. Most of the goodies will be sent on their way with Andrew to work in the morning but we shall keep some for us.

Here is what we made, the cakes are to be made into Fairy cakes and so will need to be iced, Marshmallow Crispie cakes and Snickerdoodles (very moreish)

Oh your puppy is gorgeous! About the same age as my parents' golden lab puppy! And I love the new look blog!!!! How lovely to spend a day cooking with your little girl - hopefully Dot and I will do something like that tomorrow as she has an inset day. I know she has plans to cook spaghetti bolognaise for supper and I might point her in the direction of chocolate crispy cakes too! And then we might do some sewing or just read together - fun!

My OLD black lab is sitting at my feet as I write this but I totally remember when she was just 8 weeks old...10 years ago. Now we have lots of wrinkles and salt and pepper hair. Labs age so gracefully! Congrats on 200 posts and I'd love to win your giveaway.

Nice to see that bell is doing well, although i hear andrew is having a few restless nights with her.

Many thanks for the Fairy cakes and the Marshmallow Crispie cakes, they went down a storm in the office.
