Christmas catch up

Christmas came and went all to quickly, sadly for us a lot of it was spent visiting Dave's Dad who was found unconscious at home on the 22nd December he is still in hospital now and we are all very worried for him.
Christmas day was planned for us all to be together at Dave's sisters which we did and Dave and his brother and sisters took turns to visit. There was seventeen of us at the table and after dinner I got the kids up doing pyramids and a 'special' we call the chair.
First person sits on a stool ,second person puts their head and shoulders on first person's lap with knees bent and feet on floor , third person does the same beginning to form a square, the first person then lies back to the third person's lap..... then the best bit the stool is taken away and nobody collapses !! It only took us about twelve attempts as there was so much laughing.

Just Minis Xmas show

Fizzle's first show was just minis. I was pretty nervous that she would get into the ring and just go mad and run around not listening to anything I said, however her first run was the 1-3 agility and it went quite well, apart from at the end when I took my eyes off her and she went to investigate the crowd. Luckily we only lost time and she got her first ever clear round. I was really pleased with her run, considering it was her first time in the ring. Next was the jumping round which wasn't so good, she got completely distracted by the crowd and the atmosphere. We got eliminated but she stayed in the ring with me and for her first show I went home happy.

Next it was Mum's turn, her first run was with Ink in the 4-7 Agility, Mum had a really bad cold and had lost her voice, meaning that she couldn't give vocal commands to the dogs, she had to rely on her positioning and body language. The last jump showed that she just wasn't quite up to it!

Then she had a go with Tippex, who got it perfectly and they came second.
