Once Sir Noodles felt that all of the pugs had been conquered, we headed to the pub for a bite to eat with Stu-pot.
He’s been visiting us from China where is a fancy pants tea ambassador! ❤
Stu has an amazing Tea blog by the way, check it – http://teaearlgreyhotblog.tumblr.com/

If you live in London you should check out the poppy installation currently at the Tower.

Fish and Chips!! Yummmmmm.

This is Stu showing me how to take an appropriately obnoxious selfie because apparently my attempts at selfie taking were not obnoxious enough. 😉

It was a brilliant pug & London event-filled day! And then it was bedtime for all! Cheers! x

A Weekend in Worcester…

It was that time again.

Work. Sleep. Work. Sleep.

We needed a break!

One Friday afternoon a few weeks ago, we piled the family into the car (pups included) and headed North for a couple of days of respite.

Goodbye London, hello Worcester!

Pronounced “Wooster” Not “WAR-CHESTER” (as I continue to do despite knowing very well how it should be pronounced).

Our friends live in a beautiful old Georgian house filled to the brim with antiques nestled quietly between neighbouring farms.

Meet Sir Noodles the Paperanian

In a feeble attempt to curb some of my cute animal hysteria, my husband and I acquired the fluffiest little bundle of cuddles in November.

Like ANYTHING could curb my addiction to darling little creatures.

When we got him at 6 weeks old, he was barely bigger that my hand.

IMG_0766

He has grown like a weed!

IMG_0250

He loves to eat my hair…

And my face…

Clocking in at 6.5 lbs now, he is almost as big as a small cat.

But bath time transforms our little bear/fox cub into a drowned rat.

He is always on the move!

And even though he is unbelievably adorable, he is a quite the feisty little beast.

IMG_0816

And he loves his daddy more than anything…

IMG_0848

Which is funny, because so do I!

I love my little London family!
