Soggibottom's bucket O' Frogs.

I love it when a plan comes together. Except no one told me that the little lad who the frogs are going to has a grandad who has a frog phobia.. Grandad has to deliver them like it or not.
These are happy little guys, won't jump around and get out of the bucket I promise !

A few weeks ago another pair of redundant jeans was lucky enough to be recycled into a rag doll.

A little girl who loves the colour orange, loves the beach and loves collecting shells...

Thanks Alyssa's mum for sending Alyssa's photo with Shelley Rainbow.  As I said, don't you love it when a plan comes together.

Pop will be fine.. He will probably lock the bucket of frogs in the boot of his car when he delivers them. How was I to know about his frog phobia ?
Giggled all afternoon, but SHH, that's between you and me....

Sitting just a few feet away from our frog pond in Soggibottom's garden this afternoon, we didn't like to say to Pop, frogs behind you.   We kept quiet.......

In the meantime. Dust and more dust. It makes us wonder what are we breathing in, let alone the guys that are working down here digging the new water course that is intended to help with our flooding problem.  The time line promised was 16 weeks. Next week we start week 19.............
It's a constant struggle, with red dusty clay. It floats everywhere,  keeping all windows and doors closed is a good thing.

Even if the temperatures are high.
I really hope the new road that is going to go around our village is going to be worth it. The whole village is under a dust cloud. It's not just us.

This is our daily dust routine. Wet cloths gathering red stuff. From the inside not the outside.
Thank heaven for weekends. It all goes quiet and the dust settles.

Update on Frankie de tabby. He is healing AND AS USUAL EATING.
We believe he has a pair of boxing gloves hidden behind the cat flap, just in case he has to defend his space again. He is fine and send his luv LUV'S. Thanks so much to everyone who has emailed and asked about him. Frankie de tabby lives to fight another day.

Miss Mutt has been out and about on the beach this week.  Click on CATFLAP CAVALIER. you can find her there.
 Soggibottom hasn't been blog visiting over the last few weeks. We will be back and see you all again soon... promise x x x

I love the bucket of frogs. Reminds me of when my son was 4 (40 years ago). We had been invaded by frogs hopping down the street at night. My Dad took Brett and a paper bag outside and they filled it up with frogs. Of course, they let them all go, but they had the best time.

That picture of Alyssa and her dollie is precious; she obviously loves it. Frankie looks like one tough kitty; glad to know he's better. The frogs are too cute and Miss Mutt is a pleasure to see. Keep enjoying your summer.

It looks like you are having a fun and busy summer with crafting and family. I am glad Frankie is doing well, I had that problem with my old guy, he was always getting into scraps, but he was big enough to win, lol.

Oh yuck construction dust - I hope it settles soon! LOVE the froggies and Shelley Rainbow, Alyssa looks so pleased, well done my friend! Pop doesn't look so pleased, good thing you didn't tell him what was behind him. Glad to see Frankie feeling better and will go visit Freya!
