Jan 1st, 2021!! -Time to reflect

Happy New Year everyone. Today’s picture is of Alfie, taking time out from his hectic schedule of walking. eating, playing and sleeping, to reflect back on the past year. Alfie reports that 2020 wasn’t so bad for him. He got to travel around Europe in January, February and part of March. When he got homeContinue reading “Jan 1st, 2021!! -Time to reflect”

August 25th – RNLI

We took the 4 legged children down to Cornwall for a few days, to see their Cornish cousins and owner. A trip in Dizzy (our motorhome) wouldn’t be normal unless we had some wild weather, and today was no exception thanks to storm Francis. This mean’t the furry friends needed to stay out of theContinue reading “August 25th – RNLI”

August 21st – Nosey neighbours….

Obviously not our lovely human neighbours, but our bovine friends in the back field. They are very inquisitive, watching me move various items from the cabin into Eric, the new workshop. The cabin is nearly empty now, and almost ready for a good clean and maybe a coat of paint. It’s been an emotional experience,Continue reading “August 21st – Nosey neighbours….”

August 19th – Artwork

We decided to change a picture in the lounge with a nice Steven Brown canvas of Effilumps It’s probably not everyone’s taste but we like it. That’s the thing with art, it is subjective. No rights or wrongs. Many aspects of our lives are subjective, and I think it’s interesting to hear other people’s opinionContinue reading “August 19th – Artwork”

Prior to the evening, I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about it, as we had been isolating due to Denise’s asthma, but it was great to eat out again. The staff at the restaurant wereContinue reading “July 25th – First post-lockdown dinner”

July 24th – Solitude or loneliness?

Today’s picture is from the archives, but I thought of this image after doing a tough shift for SHOUT. Some people may look at the picture and see a lonely dog, down on it’s luck in the middle of nowhere. Other’s may see a dog enjoying the peace and quiet, looking enviously at this sereneContinue reading “July 24th – Solitude or loneliness?”

July 16th – Neighbours

Today’s picture is of our friendly neighbour, ‘Power-tool Phil’. We were talking about old children’s TV programs whilst having our socially distanced coffee, and it would appear he is putting on his own version of sooty and sweep, either that or he hasn’t read the instructions on his new fishing rod ….. Joking aside, PhilContinue reading “July 16th – Neighbours”
