Look who came along for the ride ... yes, young Lulu.
She nabbed the pinwheel I bought for my uncle ... she's hidden it somewhere, but I'm sure I can
This afternoon we visited the Joviva chihuahuas, including the mummy chi (Kenya) of our new puppy, who was looking very heavily pregnant and uncomfortable.
Here's my son being totally taken in by young Roxie, the 6 month old puppy who stole our hearts. She belongs to the breeder's granddaughter, so we weren't allowed to steal her!
And in exciting news just to hand - my son starts this next Tuesday (at 4 am), at our local Baker's Delight bakery. The graphic design course didn't work out, formal education really doesn't work for him, so we're hoping this will suit him better. Fingers crossed!
It'll be us driving him to work at 4am (the bakery is only 1.5 km from our home), but he's well on the way to getting his driver's licence, so hopefully this will only be for a month or two. As he gets more experienced he'll be allowed to start work earlier (3am, then 2am, and eventually 1 am).
It'll be a shock for him after being unemployed for 2 years, but we're hoping the hours (he's a natural night owl), and the work (he's good with his hands, and has always enjoyed baking), and the social aspect (just a few nice blokes to work with, and not having to deal with serving customers) will suit him and the challenges his Asperger's presents. After 4 years of apprenticeship he'll be a qualified baker, and able to get work just about anywhere - no shortage of jobs. Plus he gets a free loaf of fresh bread every day (which he seems disinclined to share with us!).
