We're back...

Not that any of you realised we had gone I'm sure, as I managed to answer a couple of comments. We have been to see DS & FDiL and our two grand dogs S & M. Really enjoyable visit. DB & DS finally managed to clear their garden and patio of the last of the rubbish whilst FDiL & I stayed home to have a good woman to woman chat. I love having these kinds of chats with her as we both know we can say anything to each other without embarrassment.

We went out for a meal Saturday evening at a nice 'local' Italian place. When it came time for us to leave, the heavens opened and a cloud burst was in progress. Knowing we would get soaked before reaching the car, FDiL & I started skipping and dancing and generally messing about much to the astonished look of the people in the restaurant. DB & DS walked several paces behind us trying to look like they didn't belong with us!

Both S & M needed the fur on their ears cutting as they were beginning to pick up too many grass seeds and other things. Here is a picture of M after being finished. You can just see the back of S in the background having hers done but no picture to show you as I forgot to take one!
We had driven to and from them with very little in slow traffic or hold-ups at roundabouts etc. Whilst they had quite a bit of rain, B. has just been round for a cup of tea to let us know that we have had little rain other than a quick heavy burst Saturday evening. I thought that might be the case as none of my overflow water barrels had topped up!

Might need to cover the plastic milk cartons differently as some has already started to flake off. Mind you, once the flowers really get going this will be covered.

  1. We have rain, rain and then some rain. Oh and I shouldn't forget the wind! Those spaniel eyes get me every time. Alfie, and by the looks of it M, can work them to perfection! Xxx

    1. Her eyes are rather cute aren't they. She is currently on heat for the first time and sticking to J. like glue!

  2. Glad you had such a lovely visit with J and S. We had some rain over the weekend, and howling wind, but things are back to relative calm, and the sun has come out again!

    1. Yes, it was lovely. Didn't do too much so that was a nice break.

  3. It sounds like you had a lovely visit. I'm sure we all have that friend that you can have genuine heart to heart chats with :)
    Best wishes.
