Day three was a porridgey breakfast before hitting the road to visit Mum in Manchester. After a coffee and an hour putting the world to rights we set off for Wyevale for a spot of 'ladies who lunch' with Bella as a furry member of the gang.
She gets a LOT of attention everywhere we go and she can get terribly overwhelmed by all these giant hands trying to pet her, so I had the brainwave of grabbing a Mouse Cat Bed and popping her in it on the chair next to me.
She soon settled down at the back where no one could see her and slept peacefully all through lunch.
After another coffee back at Mum's it was time to head back to the Van with little Bella sleeping again happily in the back if the car. She's moved up from her little zip up carrier and can now be trusted in one of the dog beds on the back seat ... of course wearing her little seatbelt to keep her safely in one place.
After the large cooked lunch I really didn't want or need much for my tea, so I decided in a bid to use up a bit more of the pesto to have toasted Cheese, Pesto and Red Onion sandwiches.
This small loaf from the freezer was too small to go into the sandwich toaster, so I briefly toasted the bread in the toaster and then finished the assembled sandwiches off in the frying pan.
Result = Very tasty 😀
And of course after seeing little Bella so happy in her Mouse House ... I just had to buy it for her. My logic was that after spending absolutely no money on food for home this week, I could easily justify a little splurge.
She played happily in her new den all night while I caught up on some TV watching.
