Day 64....one more sleep ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ˜. Iโ€™m going to have an early night soโ€™s I can get my beauty sleep and be ready for a big day tomorrow.
I got my first pressie today from Aunty Corinne and Uncle Michael. What do you think of the likeness? I love it ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅฐ. I already know Iโ€™m having steak for my dinner so I canโ€™t wait ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹.
Today I got a lie in as my hooman went to the shops (without me again!). When she got home we manned the phone for the takeaways and I played football in the garden and went for a quick paddle in my pool. It was a tad chilly due to the weather today, I hope itโ€™s fine and warm tomorrow. โ˜€๏ธ
I think there might be lots of pictures tomorrow so best get to sleep now soโ€™s Iโ€™m ready for the camera.
Keep safe and well and we shall see you as soon as we can

Day 63....only two more sleeps until a little someone (hint hint) turns 10 ๐Ÿ˜. Iโ€™m sooo looking forward to my steak ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹.
I helped supervise the completion of the bench today. Now it just needs to be painted. Just right for social distance between two mates and a bottle of wine ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘.
Very tiring work it is supervising though, I needed to have a nap.
Iโ€™ve also been told off tonight big time! I might go and sulk for a little while ๐Ÿ˜’. Iโ€™m sorry to my fur friend Alice, apparently Iโ€™m not supposed to try and chase you off or fight with you. I will try to be good from now on, cause I donโ€™t like being told off ๐Ÿ˜ž.
The Hogsback Tea has been racked and tapped and the thumbs up seal of approval was given this evening. If you like real ale, then bring your pint pots along and we can fill them up for you.
Another fantastic Friday takeaways, donโ€™t forget we are here again tomorrow. Phone (01306713250) between 2&3pm or email us gladys@thecrowncapel.co.uk by 3pm with your order. We will have it ready at your allotted time.
And last but not least....itโ€™s my birthday on Sunday, just in case you didnโ€™t get the earlier hint. Iโ€™m so looking forward to my day, hope the weather is going to stay fine (even though my hooman wants it to rain for the garden). Iโ€™m gonna play with my ball all day, and splash in my pool and have steak for my dinner ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹yummy.
Hope you all keeping safe and well, and I shall see you all really soon.

Day 62 ..... another beautiful day in Capel. Today I got to go out and have a wash and blow dry at my friend Becky Robinson house. I feels sooo much better now, and look bootiful for my birthday on Sunday. (Thatโ€™s if I donโ€™t play in the garden hehehe).
Tonight we held the Zoom Gin Club from the garden with special guest (Key worker) all social distancing. Thanks to @craftginclub for continuing to send out our monthly sample bottle, today we tried Monaco. Apparently it was rather good but unfortunately I wasnโ€™t allowed to try any ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ. Then it was out on The Street to listen to the lovely Sally Eliza Cranham singing with her dad Bob Cranham playing the guitar. Lots of support for NHS and key workers (even the bus was in the right place/time tonight ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘).
And guess what?? Tomorrow itโ€™s Friday again!! How fast are these weeks flying by. So as itโ€™s Friday that means pizza (if youโ€™ve ordered it already) or fishy n chippies for dinner. Phone is manned between 2pm & 3pm tomorrow or you can email us by 3pm with your order. Mmmm fishy ๐Ÿ˜‹, perhaps if I give the sad puppy dog eyes Iโ€™ll get some for my dinner.
Keep safe and well and we shall see you as soon as we can.

Day 61 was a beauty! Such lovely weather, I was in and out of my pool all day to keep myself cool. That Aunty of mine started sanding the front tables down, getting ready for social distance opening. Fingers crossed for the end of June. I then went for a ride in my new wheels in the cool of the evening. Iโ€™m very happy with them as it means I can keep up with those hoomans of mine, cause I only have little legs. I even managed to jump out by myself when they stopped. ๐Ÿ˜
Donโ€™t forget Gin Clubbers, to pop in and get your jar this afternoon. The zoom chat will be at 6.30pm. Itโ€™s a racy little number from Monoco.
Remember to order your pizza tonight for Friday from thestonebakedcompany.com. And if you want any sides like coleslaw or chips or chicken wings then let us know your collection time and we can have them ready for you at the same time.
Keep safe and well and we shall see you all as soon as we can

Day 60....,that softy has gone out for a drive in the car so Iโ€™m hijacking her blog ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜ธ. Iโ€™ve even come out to her garden, problem is Iโ€™m not sure who that other one is. I can see why Gladys loves being out here so much. Great sunshine, lots of space, not sure about these birds though. They keep flying off before I can talk to them. Oops, sheโ€™s back. I best off quick and get the cigars ready for poker later ๐Ÿ˜ธ, else Iโ€™m sure she will complain. Nice speaking to you all. Lady Love Pera (First Maincoon of the Crown) (plus Gladyโ€™s fur sister).

Oi! What you think you up to Lady Love? This here is my blog and I have the last say on it.
Iโ€™m sorry about my fur blister peeps, she doesnโ€™t get out often, and is very jealous of me going out in the car. The only time she goes in the car is to visit the vet ๐Ÿ˜.
Anyway, what a fab day we had today. I got to go for a drive in the little car, and I got the front seat ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€ (I did call shotgun). Then I spent time chasing my ball and hanging in my nice clean pool. I did have to keep an eye on Lady Love as well to make sure she didnโ€™t get sunburnt. My hoomans were very busy as well, I think they getting ready for my bday on Sunday, but never too sure as they donโ€™t give much away. I hope it includes steak or burgies or sausages, or perhaps all 3 ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹. The tomatoes have been planted thank you Dot. Now Iโ€™ve got a request for you all as well, if anyone has any old guttering they are not using them could my hooman have it please, think she is using it for her planting, but seen as I donโ€™t have thumbs then I get off from having to plant things ๐Ÿ˜.
Iโ€™ve been told to mention Gin Club for those members is this Thursday, please call in for your sample before 6pm on Thursday.
Another great Crown Capel zoom quiz night tonight. Many thanks to all that took part as well as our quiz mistress Corinne for putting it all together. Congrats to Ali (Mandy)and Mr Bear for being this weeks winner ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.
Letโ€™s hope this weather keeps up for a few more days (weeks) so we can get some more jobs done.
As always keep safe and well and we shall see you as soon as we can.

Yesterday was day 57.... my hoomans decided to do the Eurovision marathon so thatโ€™s why my post is late๐Ÿ˜Ÿ.
I had a great day playing in my garden though. Even the fur sister came out. She does like to taunt me whenever she can. At one point I lost my ball into the pond area and she just sat there looking at it and me, I swear she was laughing and saying hahaha you canโ€™t get in here but I can. I had to give sad puppy dog eyes to my hooman to get it out for me.
Then I lost it in the hedge (yes I know again!) so this time I decided Iโ€™d help take some of the hedge out to make it easier to get in future ๐Ÿ˜. Very good helper I am hehehe.
After such a big play day, it was time to man the takeaway table and say hello to all the peeps that came in. Big thanks to my friend Andrea Whelband who dropped in some telegraph cucumber plants for the salad bath, we are going to have some seriously good salads here once all these plants start to grow ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹.
Then it was time for my hoomans to be entertained by that google box thingy. Some of the sounds coming out last night hurt my ears ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ, but for some reason it amuses them so I just had to put up with it. I took myself off to bed and left them to it. At least today is Sunday so it means we get to have a nice lie in and relax today. Hopefully the fur sister want swat my bum with her claws today.
Keep safe and well and we shall see you all soon.
