Of course I don't mind! I'm getting good at this socialising thing...for those who don't know, I'm everso new to it, and beginning to understand there's not monsters absolutely everywhere.
After our long walk to the beach and back, Mum decided to get the camera out and do a mini photoshoot with me. I'm not really comfortable with being in front of the camera to tell the truth...but was willing to give it a go.
I felt a bit awkward at first...Mum said I was sitting as if I had a pole up my bum (rood!)
But it made her giggle - and I like to see her laugh - so we'll let her off. She also said I should relax a bit and smile for the camera - so I did...
OK - so I wasn't that relaxed - but we were getting there, and it takes a girl time to warm up a bit doesn't it.
Then something awful happened - she started to sing! If you've ever heard my Mum sing, you'll know she's no Paloma Faith and if I had fingers I'd have shoved them in my ears it was that bad. There was nothing else I could do but start singing too. Mum thought I was being cute and singing with her - I wasn't - I was just trying to stop the local cat population gathering outside.
I did my Elvis impression...
...and it all got a bit silly!
Silly's good - I like silly loads.
I'm good at serious too though - Look.
That's a serious face if ever I saw one.
We carried on chatting and Mum carried on taking pictures, and I began to relax and soak up the sun (there's not nearly enough of that in this country is there?)
And then it was done! It wasn't so bad after all. I got lots of treats, Mum's 100% attention and something to talk with you about on my first ever Wednesday with Willow. I think I did OK don't you? I can get used to this.
