The Week That Was…

Joke of the week:

I have two this week, a literary one and a parenting one!

It just feels like a week where we all need an extra joke to chuckle at!


A much talked about topic within our household is Zeus’s weight. He’s our 7 year old husky who got very fat at one stage. He is the definition of a food addict. For the last year, he’s been on a carefully portioned diet, we also have to supervise meal times because he eats superfast and Diva, our german shepherd, eats superslow, she also has three times the amount of food as him. When we weren’t supervising the eating, he was wolfing down his and then muscling her away from her bowl to also eat hers. He became a fatty boombah and she got very skinny. So, supervised meals, small portions, daily exercise, and he’s slowly slimming down but he’s getting there. Huskies have a very different metabolism, quick to gain weight, slow to lose it. Despite his trim figure and increased energy levels, he’s still obsessed with food. This pic is classic him: Adrian is eating a left over chicken parmi and if you check the door, you’ll see Zeus, sitting to attention, as though he’s willing a piece of parmi to come his way. Keep dreaming big boy!


Book of the week:

It has to be this, for no other reason than I finally conquered it – and also enjoyed it!


What I’ve been watching:

Still going! Last season…

Mary’s stepped it up a notch and I’m enjoying it quite a bit.


What I’m reading right now:


Until next week… ๐Ÿ™‚โ˜•๐Ÿ“š

  1. To me Zeus looks gorgeous – overweight or not! “Conquered” seems the right word in connection with Wolf Hall. The sheer number of pages has so far prevented me from making an attempt. Glad you found it worth the effort. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Nawwwww, Zeus! He’s so beautiful! And hey, I can totally relate to his food obsession ๐Ÿ˜… My pants are getting ever-tighter the longer this pandemic goes on… I admire your willpower on his behalf. If he were mine, I’m SURE I wouldn’t be able to resist slipping him a treat (or five!).
