I'm Back!

Our family guests left yesterday and the house is back to normal from a space point of view, but we miss them already!

Two of many loads of washing are on the line. I doubt they will fully dry but even if half dry, will save on the tumble drying and can be finished off indoors if necessary.

I think we only lit the wood burner once or twice. The room got too hot very quickly so after a log or two, it was allowed to burn out. Extra people and animals certainly make the place warmer.

We have slept like logs, something to do with daily long walks and plenty of beach air. My camera died on the visit to Old Hunstanton, so I only got these two:

Although the sea was relatively calm, it was blowing a gale along the beach. After a quick swim and frolic for the dogs, we headed inland to get out of the wind.

A few days later, saw us (and huge crowds/dogs) at Wells next the Sea:

Once home, the dogs were pooped:

You are always warned about Springers and Labradors being boisterious but these three bound in first thing after their toilet break, greet you like long lost friends (re-connecting with the pack I guess), then go to sleep. They stay like that until a walk is mentioned, when their energy levels switch fully on,once off their leads.

However, back home, they have a quick drink of water then go back to sleep! Master L is the youngest so is awake a little more wanting a quick play before succumbing to sleep.

Mind you, they are exceedingly well trained and I guess that makes all the difference.

  1. We are going to go for a nice walk later even if it is cold, it makes you appreciate the warmth of being indoors.

  2. I'm glad you have had such a lovely time. It's been lovely and warm here too.
    I have had my washing out too. The first load dried nicely. The second may not dry completely but as it is tea towels, I can finish them off with the iron. Sheets tomorrow and I bet it will rain!!!

    1. Washing from the line is on the rack now. All towels washed and in the dryer for cheap drying overnight. Other than emergency drying, towels are usually the only thing dried as we like soft ones.

  3. We had a lovely long doggy walk yesterday in the mild air and warm sunshine along the prom at Llandudno. And yep, the minute we got home the dogs took to their beds while we were invigorated and raring to go, oh well, it made for a lovely peaceful evening.

  4. How lovely to have a winter walk by the sea. Us Cotswolders get envious as seaside walks are at least 2 hours away by car. Enjoy :)

    1. They are gun dogs so have to be well trained. Doubt if we had our own, they would be as good as that!
