Monthly Round-Up | March 2017

Hello all! Happy Sunday.

I thought I'd do a little round-up post for March, as we were absent from the blog for much of it. There isn't any particular reason for this, it was just a very busy term at work (I'm a teaching assistant) and we didn't get out and about as much as usual. I thought it might be fun to recap some of the main happenings in March.

My Etsy Shop Reopened!

My etsy shop (where we sell dog bandanas!) was closed for a few months after Christmas, whilst we gathered new fabrics and worked on new Spring stock. We still have some of these beautiful patterns left, and you can currently get 30% off with code APRILFOOL at checkout. It would mean so much to me if you'd head over to the shop (which you can find here) and check it out; we have tie on and slide-on designs, in a few different sizes. 

Archie Turned One!

It was Archie's first birthday on the 16th March! I know, I know... I can't believe I didn't write a special birthday post for Archie at the time. It was all a little bit hectic; I was working, and then I went off on a crafting retreat the day after his birthday, so it all just escaped me. Plus, to keep it fresh, his birthday cake arrived the day before his birthday, so that didn't give me much time to squeeze a photoshoot AND blog post in before I went away. The cake was from Arton & Co and we were really impressed with it. Both dogs thoroughly enjoyed it and Archie had a lovely birthday walk too. I can't believe he's already one, it feels like yesterday that he came into our lives. 

Our Trip to Yorkshire

Last weekend we headed off to Yorkshire for a weekend by the sea, and we reviewed the dog-friendly Ox Pasture Hall Hotel; you can find the post here. It was our first trip with both dogs, and we had a lovely time but it was certainly eventful! I've definitely learnt some dos and don'ts when it comes to travelling with Winnie in particular, and will be putting them into practise when we visit our family's caravan next weekend. Archie was such an angel as a puppy that travelling with him was no bother, but now he's learnt all Winnie's naughty habits, we have two monkeys on our hands!

So there we have it, a little March round-up. I hope you're having a lovely weekend, and that April brings you lots of fun adventures! 

Chloé, Archie and Winnie
