Now before I sign off today, I must apologise for not visiting your blogs over the last few days...
Friday was spent either sitting in or avoiding traffic jams on M1 whilst picking up our son from University & this weekend I am trying to pin hubby down (without pain - I promise!) and finally finish the Christmas shopping.

And as usual I'm multi-tasking - I am currently trying to find a good breeder of West Highland White Terriers
(KC Registered/Assured with no history of health issues)
So if anyone can recommend any UK breeders I'd be most grateful.
