Hello there! Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post! It seems like I've been away for a long time when truth is it's only a week!
The above photo was taken at the top of Gold Hill in Shaftesbury over a week ago. We were on our way back from Devon and wanted somewhere to stop half way. It was a glorious day, a complete contrast to today! We have seen torrential rain here and it's certainly the type of weather where you don't venture out of doors unless you have to.
A lovely red door. I loved the knocker. Gold Hill was where they filmed the advert for Hovis - "When I were a lad ..."
Looking back up Gold Hill.
We had our lunch in the Park - fresh pasties and cakes purchased from a local bakery. Very tasty they were too! KP and her friend enjoyed playing on the double slide and the swings. After our lunch we made our way out of the Park and stood to admire the views of the rolling countryside.
Charlie has been to the dog groomers. KP said that he looked adorable after his trim! Charlie does his usual trick of not looking directly at the camera!
Just before going to bed one evening last week the OH went to the kitchen to double check that the doors and windows were all locked and that the dogs had water in their bowl when he saw something jumping out of the corner of his eye! It was this little fella. We don't know whether he came in through the cat flap (which has no flap and is just a hole - you can just guess that Charlie and George have been responsible for its destruction!) or whether he was brought in by one of the cats. None of the cats were in the kitchen so if they had brought the frog in then they had quickly tired of it!
I wondered whether it was the same one that I had spotted in the garden a few weeks ago!
He posed rather nicely on the OH's hand before he blurted out, "The damn things just pee'd on me!"
After that he was quickly deposited outside in the bushes to avoid the cats getting at it.
A closer look!
And another photo!
The last one!
It has been raining here off and on, more on than off for days. The flowers in the garden have received a good battering!
We have finally been and purchased KP's school uniform. This was a bit of a palaver as the shop where she usually gets her uniform shut down due to the recession and the only shop which now stocks her uniform was a 45 minute drive away!
Last week Charlie had been to the dog groomers this week it was George's turn.
Charlie pined for George the entire time!
I don't believe it - he looked directly at the camera!
Here he is - looking out of the window, waiting for his pal to return!
Charlie has an exceedingly long tongue! "I miss George but I love you!"
Charlie and KP.
Looking at you, looking at me!
Last night there was a commotion in the hallway - one of the cats had brought a mouse into the house!
It had a lucky escape by playing dead.
I asked the OH to take it outside but that I would like to take a photo first.
"Don't take too long. I don't want this thing pee'ing on me as well!"
We know that little mousling is alive - why and how you may ask? Because the OH put it in the garage and it's not where it was left! "Why did you do that!" I asked. "I didn't want the cats killing it!" A big softie!
But now every time I go into the garage I'll have visions of a giant mouse skulking about the place!
Well that's it for now other than to say "Hello!" to two new followers www.sorcha-sidhe.blogspot.com.au and Bobbi at www.thelazydesigner.com.
Until next time,
