Getting back to normal, slowly

*news just in* you can now buy the paperback of H.Y Hanna's debut novel: Big Honey Dog Mysteries #1 Curse of the Scarab over at Amazon. You can see my review of the book here.

Barbie's leg is slowly healing, and we have attempted to resume normal life as much as possible without overdoing it. We revisited the Kinky Lizard recently, which we reviewed back in June. We had to park in an expensive car park since we didn't want Barbie to walk very far. She did enjoy the flowers and the lovely spring day though!

We also tried out a new winery in the Swan Valley, Edgecombe Brothers. Honey the Great Dane had been to visit and recommended it, so we decided to give it a try. The cafe seating area is very garden-like and it was a great place for the dogs to chill out. 

There was an 11 week old staffy pup running around off leash, and his kids were not doing a very good job of keeping an eye on him. The first time he romped over to our table, Bender got up and he got scared and ran away. He came back a couple of times later though and didn't seem scared at all by the end. The only problem was trying to stop Bender and the puppy playing underneath the table. Unfortunately we didn't get a photo, but his name was Shadow and he was adorable!

We ate some lunch (I had a potato frittata which had more eggs than potatoes), and then we went for a very short wander through the winery. 

They were both very satisfied with their day out and slept all afternoon when we got home. Hopefully Barbie doesn't feel like she is missing out on too much life whilst she is still in recovery mode!
