Looking for a rescue dog that will co-habit with 5 degus and 2 hamsters is not proving to be an easy task. I am slowing up on the search. I did tell my husband that if there was a dog out there meant for us then the situation will present itself to us. I am leaving it all to fate!
Having put that little task to one side I am left with another quandary… how to bring my husband around to the idea that we need a new standing lamp…
(Dog to standing lamp… smooth…NOT)
I know you can get reasonably priced ones but isn’t it always the case, when you see one you love, and it is expensive, you decide its too expensive but none of the others come up to that level after you have seen the perfect one.
The lamp I want is this one…
Isn’t it lovely, a little out of my price range at £135.00? I took a great opportunity and mentioned said lamp to my husband in a rare moment during the football when Newcastle United were winning. Catch him a good mood….
He mentioned something about saving for it. I think he was only half listening. What he doesn’t know is that we have a ‘savey club’ at work and since January 2nd this year I have been saving… £140.00 to date which is good in one month. He hasn’t even missed it from the bank or his wallet haha *seriously only joking*
Anyway… I needed to get the dogs and lamps out of my head and get on with some work, at work, but just before starting time I thought I would complete my morning ritual and check the local rescues to see what dogs were looking for homes….
*Rolls eyes incessantly at self*
I found Eddie, a 3 year old male boxer dog and Star, a 1 year old male Beagle mix hound.
It can’t hurt to email my hubby I thought… So I did just that.
I have just received his response…..
