We had a lovely Christmas. We started the day with the dogs opening their Secret Santapaws presents.
It's another charity based event and such great fun.
You are paired with someone with the same number of dogs as yours so it's very fair too.
As well as treats they had toys and personalised towels, all very much enjoyed so thank you Secret Santapaws.
I have a new studio apprentice.
I could be vying for space in the not too distant future! Perhaps I should have signed Olivia up for the sketchbook challenges too as she is such a good artist.
Yesterday was our Twixtmas Pointy Blast.

The light level was still quite low so a lot of the photos are a bit on the dark side.
It was fabulous to see 18 dogs all having so much fun together and not a cross word between them as always.
Even little Tully is one of the mob.

It's an amazing beach for dogs as there is nowhere for them to go and it's huge when the tide is out. there were several other dog groups and plenty of room to zoom.
In preparation for tomorrow's new year I have joined the 30 day Sketchbook Challenge with Susan of Magenta Sky and the January Challenge with 64 Million Artists. Both promise to be quick think things so lets see how long I last with those!
I've braced myself for a new round of healthy eating, not diet. I am, one day, actually going to win on that score too. Tum does suffer a fair bit since the gallbladder op so even more reason to try and get it right!
My email box has been having a major clear out too ready for the new year. I've unsubscribed from more places than I care to think about but that should me less time sifting through the rubbish!
John is spending today playing with his motorbike in the garage so I'm putting something Moroccan in the slow cooker and going to play in the studio.
I've chosen Complete as a word for the New Year. I have plenty on that score to try and get on with!!
Have a happy, healthy and creative New Year!
