We’re Mr & Mrs B, originally from Leeds & Sheffield in the north of the U.K. We love food, craft beer, neurotic rescue dogs (note to self, need more of these), weird vintage stuff, geeking out & exploring.
I’m Mrs B, lover of crafting, Disney, Jack Daniels, vintage stuff, Pinterest and photography. Hater of dessicated coconut, spiders and Summer Pudding (just why?!?!!).
Mr B loves guitars, computer techie stuff that I don’t understand, Welsh rugby union & being from Sheffield, drinks Hendersons Relish by the pint. Dislikes fish, wasps and will make an odd whinnying sound when surprised by mice.
Crazy rescue dog 1 is Sheldon, a 9 year old French Bulldog crossed with a butt-hole. We rescued him at 20 weeks and were his third family, because he was the a nightmarish puppy from Hades. But, with his late big sister Cleo’s help, he’s now a hilarious little clown of a dog with major Napoleon Syndrome. We love him very much. AKA Shelly-Belly-Boos, the Moog, Chubbs.
Crazy rescue dog 2 is Freya, a 5 year old Spanish Podenco. Used by Spanish hunters to catch rabbits and often neglected and abandoned, she now snoozes in the sun with her best mate Figaro, one of our barn kittens. Barney is kitten 2, less sweet natured than Figs, but does a little happy dance when he’s eating, so, possibly my spirit animal.
New for 2020, we now have 2 barn cats. We found Mama Ripley, and her 3 babies, Newt, Figaro and Barney in our old chicken house, and with the help of a rescue charity, everyone was trapped, neutered and vaccinated. When they were big enough, they came back to us to live as barn cats, but we sadly lost Mum and Newt to the road within 2 weeks of each other. After a year and much patience , the dogs are mainly indifferent to them, and they spend regular time inside with us in their special wine crate bed.
Animal count now 4.
