Surely when I show my husband these photos he will realise that Rosie has been getting jealous of all the lovely 'cockapoo cuddles' photos that you guys have been posting and that she really wants a little friend of her own to cuddle.



She was fast asleep when I took the first photo (and snoring) but the sound of it woke her up and then she cuddled right in for this photo!

lol in our house my step dad doesnt get a choice. he has his bikes and we dont say how many he coan have or which one he can sell or what one he can buy next so he doesnt get a say in how many dogs we can have.

however, we dont ask him to walk, feed groom, or anything we may ask him to watch them the odd night if we are out, but we will pop them in the crate for the first hour or two then he will let the,m out for pees and thats it. so realy he cant complain.


lol you could always finde something you would normaly say no too or complain about and just let him get on with it then bring it up the next time you sugest a new puppy lol i dont think that tooo sneeky do you lol

God, you'd love our place - that photo is where I am sat now, in the new extension (that was built circa 1740)! We've got plans lodged at the council at the moment, LBC and all that, so we're going through the not so good part of owning period property!

Kendal, I like your style. Unfortunately he doesn't really have any interests that I disapprove of (not ones I know about anyway :D ). I will keep it in mind though and see if I can think of anything.

WOW - We have a pair of 17th Century Grade II Listed cottages in Suffolk undergoing some restoration (My home in my previous life - for the past 18 years). The Listing is a bit of a bug-bear but they (the two are now one internally) are Sweet-Chestnut framed dating to the 1660's.
I was an antiques dealer (or antiques Collector as Julia says) - and have amassed a large amount of 16th; 17th and early 18th Century fixtures and fitting - including Elizabethan Wide Oak floorboards !!! - and one day we hope to be able to build on a large plot in Bedfordshire - a grand green-oak framed house with Antique oak framed wings. I also collect period oil portraits; early swords; period oak furniture and Delft plates too xxxxx

My lovely little step-daughter says all my stuff is just - J...U....N...K !!!!!

They sound lovely! Ours isn't actually timber framed, it's a cob walled thatched cottage (c 1600) and the 'new' bit is stone built and thatched. The timber is the internal walls. It's such a mish-mash of different styles and periods that even the conservation officer got confused about what she shodl be protecting and what she shouldn't!

Some are just pen-pushers, others turbo-nerds and some just Jobs-worth ! - we worked out exactly what side of the fence our guy was on and eventually persuaded him that it was HIS idea to do all the work WE wanted - especially as I had restored many a period building over the years including wattle and daub, cob walled and lime render - so my suggestions were based on practical knowledge and understanding - and that once finished and we have photographed the whole place it would have been all thanks to him.

Your houses all sound lovely! In the next few years we are hoping to buy a couple of acres and build a big flat pack house (alot nicer than they sound haha), with at least 5 bedrooms... and I'll have a greenhouse, an annex, a shed, triple garage, swimming pool and tons of cockapoos running round in my garden ... ah one can dream :D

Yes, we are trying to work on a similar principle, given it is all down to one person's idea of what should be preserved and how. Apparently ours is well renowned for being completely obstructive, very badly informed and a total nightmare. So we've basically worked out what we want in very general terms and then we invited her assistant (she is too grand to come out) to visit and tell us what she thought and we now (hopefully) know how to approach it in such a way that will be acceptable to her. We've already made one massive alteration to our initial plans and when she saw that we were willing to take her views on board she seemed very happy. So the plans are in now, and it's just a waiting game at the moment.

Anyway, that's all for a different forum, I think!

Although, we're trying to find someone to rebuild our cob garden wall too, so if you know someone......
