My apologies for the recent lack of posts, we have had Owners parents staying over with us for a short while on a visit to London - which went really well. Just before they arrived Owner received the excellent news that Her job was safe - She even gets a swanky new title - however, the company managed to run such a cack-handed and dubious 'process' that it has left Her and Her colleagues feeling very bitter about the whole thing. Still, Her job is secure which is great news in these times.

As i said at the outset we have also had Owners parents staying with us. Their visit went much more successfully than either Owner or i could have imagined. It did, however, mean time for me without my collar or any obvious make-up which left me feeling very naked and somewhat bereft. The worst moments though where when i was accompanying Owner and Her mother around clothes shops and markets and was desperately trying not to look too excited and interested at all of the delightful and pretty items that were on sale!

However, we now both have our flat back to ourselves and so 'normality' can once again return and the toys can come back out from their hiding places in the loft. Lovely as it has been to have Owners parents staying with us we are both delighted to now be back on our own.

During the week Owners anniversary gift to me also arrived, namely the super pretty belly ring that She ordered. To my surprise Owner actually ordered two rings, one for 'formal' wear and one more casual. i adore them both! You can see them below;

the 'formal' wear one is the one on the left
We are now both excited at the prospect of my getting my belly pierced so that i can wear my super cute dangly rings. Both rings came from Tummy Toys. Also, now that the uncertainty around Owners job is behind Her we can continue with planning some of the, to us at least, exciting and dramatic developments we have planed for later this year.
