'Memories in pattern and colour'

Tag Archives: home

Its been a while since Mr Bingley got his spot in the limelight so i just though i would share with you a little about his favourite activities.

First and foremost his favourite toy is Baby Pooh. They have been together since Bingley was small, and it is still Bingleys toy of choice. Baby Pooh was picked up from a bargain bin in a charity shop, but was in brand new condition. Now though as the years have passed Pooh only has half an ear left and his jumper is slightly worst for wear, and even a tumble in the washing machine fails to make him glow, but he is much loved by Mr Bingley and I have to admit Baby Pooh is very cute!

Although he may not look like it Mr Bingley is very clever, and sometimes he does not always get the chance to use his brain at its best. Although nibbling on Baby Pooh’s ears is fun, it does not stretch Mr Bingleys intelligence! So recently my family bought him a special ‘thinking’ toy for our favourite little man, it is a Nina Ottosson’s Interactive Dog Toy called ‘the brick’. And so far has been a massive success. I would not really call it much of a challenge for Bingley, as he worked out what to do first time, but it still keeps him busy for a little bit and makes having treats a bit of a workout for him too! The pictures make him look terrible grumpy…Believe it or not he does actually enjoy playing with it, I think he just has a serious face on because of all the thinking!

He is also very fond of a little game with his tennis ball, he does not go crazy over it like some dogs, but enjoys collecting the ball as long as it is in the comfort of his own home. He wont play fetch out on walks at all. In fact he thinks that is rather embarrassing so we stopped attempting that a long time ago!

My last pictures are possibly the most frequented of Bingley activities. Its a daily job Mr Bingley feels he has to do, in fact he sits in the armchair when he knows its 4:30pm and waits for the newspaper boy to deliver the paper! We have always allowed him to do this task as frankly its super cute and Bingley utterly loves collecting mail and the newspapers from the door. The only trouble is when you have not realised he has collected it and he then goes on to rip it up…Yes its very naughty, and quite frustrating, but hey, that’s why we love him! 😀

Thrifty Thursday: Repurposed wooden pallet bookcase

 

I love the rawness of this weeks post. It’s such a simple idea which needs very little work, and it doesn’t even need hanging up! Just prop it up against a wall, so its easy to move when you get bored with your room layout!

A word of warning though if you have youngsters, make sure there are no splinters, other wise it could be OUCH!
