Still life with BigDog bottom and new favourite tea towel (thank you Bruce and Reggie )
Big Old BigDog walking through the dawn.
I feel seen.
Eric is teaching the Bosnian Ambassadog how to chill.
Morning. The Bosnian Ambassadog may not have entirely got the point of treats but does believe they must be carried everywhere. Carefully.
Most favourite Christmas present. @saskiaarthur painted Sisu La Freckle (aka the Bosnian Ambassadog ).
Merry Christmas! Even from those of us who are Very Worried About Our Christmas Furry Ducks xxx
This is the 2am face of a Bosnian rescue dog who knows that dogs are not allowed upstairs but secretly likes to be a little bit closer to the sleeping humans. (Picture taken by nocturnal teenager ) #adoptdontshop
Thank you so much @reesewitherspoon and the wonderful @reesesbookclub for this early Christmas present. Will hang pride of place in my office (beside the picture of me and @nanookthebigdog ). And thank you to everyone who read it, and is still messaging me about it. I couldn’t be more thrilled xxx
So this wrapped last night. Has been so exciting to watch Felicity Jones, @shailenewoodley , Callum Turner and Joe Alwyn bring these characters to life. V proud to have another female director - @augustinefrizzell - at the helm too. #Thelastletterfromyourlover #skewingthosestatisticslittlebylittle
Um... the old one is still here...? 😂😂😂
So on Thursday evening I did my last event of the year - the Waterstones Piccadilly Christmas signing - where I got to hang out with two wonderful men: Mr Andrew Ridgeley, whose memoir of his friendship with George Michael and life in Wham is funny and touching (and yes, my 14 year old self was squealing ), but also (next pic ) Mr Alan Lee, the cult fantasy artist behind Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings, who, weirdly, was our family lodger when I was a child and who I hadn’t seen since I was six years old. Life, eh? x
This is the face of a rescue dog who really likes this log fire business but cannot work out for the life of her why her backside keeps getting so hot.
It’s the end of November and I want to say a huge thank you to @reesewitherspoon and @reesesbookclub for including #thegiverofstars this past month. Seeing the messages and posts from your (passionate! ) readers - and seeing what resonated with them - has been such a joy. I hope the next author enjoys it as much as I have. I’ll be reading along xxx PS edited to add if you all aren’t watching the Morning Show you should be. Episodes 6 and 7 are 🔥🔥🔥
Eric and Alfie love a good fire.
Look at this clever girl, our Bosnian Ambassadog, who has learned to wag her tail. Not much for your average dog, sure, but for a girl who was so shut down, and had spent her whole life in a pound, this feels like huge progress. I couldn’t have asked for a better welcome home. #adoptdontshop @savingsufferingstrays #wagtastic
