Hello there! Thanks ever so much for your comments on my last post! Last week was fairly hectic and I was quite glad that the School Sports Day was rained off on Monday of this week! I don't know if they'll be able to re-arrange it as the weather doesn't seem to want to play ball!
Last Thursday was a fine day followed by a fine evening - so the dogs were put on their leads and we returned to the fields where we had seen many butterflies previously. As soon as we got to the fields though a strong gust of wind blew in our direction and the butterflies went to ground.
I caught sight of this little mite who appeared to be gripping onto a blade of grass for dear life as it was being swayed this way and that! It's wings looked very feathery.
The dogs love running in the long grass. It tires them out pretty quickly especially Charlie, our dachshund, with his tiny little legs. He was very naughty again and found an area of fox poo to roll in, so it was bath-time for him when we got home. Charlie is a good dog whilst at home - it's only when he gets outside that problems occur, whereas with George, our spaniel - he is a good dog outside but naughty indoors - he chews the skirting boards in the kitchen during the night!
He had a trip to the vets last week for his booster vaccinations and the vet said he had good teeth, the OH said, "Yes, he's been using the skirting boards as a toothbrush!"
On Friday evening we heard a commotion outside and being the inquisitive type I went upstairs to do some curtain twitching! We saw a horse and carriage pull away and then another arrived - I said to the OH, "Have you seen what's outside?"
He said quite non-plussed from the lounge - "Oh, I heard in town that three schools were hosting their Prom night and some were going to be travelling to the Prom in style!"
Of course, non of this had been mentioned to me or KP!
These photos were taken from our upstairs bedroom window. I love shire horses and these two looked great!
And they were off! Can you see the pink fire engine in the background this also carried girls going to a Prom - on the side was written "Girls just want to have fun!"
There was nothing like this in my day. I suppose it's all been transported from America as all things usually are.
Saturday night saw us attending the Year 6 School Disco!
KP and friends.
But it was mainly the girls who were dancing - I don't know why most of them removed their footwear!
Sunday was spent quietly at home, watching the heavy rainfall and we're still subject to a hosepipe ban!
Until next time,
P.S. As many of you commented on my last post - it would appear that Blogger is now saying that my last posting was 3 months ago! It's better than a year ago but it's still pretty frustrating.
Please keep me posted if you see any change - for better or worse!
And finally, "Hello!" to my newest follower Maria from http://www.roseytintedspectacles.blogspot.co.uk/
