Feb 7th – Geology….. Makes you wonder

We took the 4 legged children for a walk in Parc Natural de la Serra Calderona. It was gorgeous, fab scenery, fresh air and very few people, but as we wandered along dirt tracks, surrounded by mountains, the mind started wandering (as normal). What wildlife might still exist in the caves high up in theContinue reading “Feb 7th – Geology….. Makes you wonder”

Jan 30th – Travelling with dogs…..

Travelling with our 4 legged children has it’s disadvantages…. You never get a lie in, you can’t take long walks around a town taking in the sights, you constantly trip over the blighters in the motorhome, and they sometimes roll in stuff you couldn’t imagine how bad it smells. But the advantages far out-way theContinue reading “Jan 30th – Travelling with dogs…..”

Jan 26th – 4 legged children

Today’s shot is of our 4 legged children (Callie, Alfie and Velvet). Their lives are so simple. They don’t care where they are in the world; what the weather is like; who the prime minister is etc, etc. No stress…. Their wants are very simple: Food, Play / Walks, shelter and sleep. If there’s suchContinue reading “Jan 26th – 4 legged children”

Jan 23rd – Good times

We stopped off last night with friends that are living their dream. Having sold their place in the UK, they now have a stunning place in rural France. It needs some work but they are excited by the prospect of their project and have great plans to put their own stamp on the place. OneContinue reading “Jan 23rd – Good times”

Jan 22nd – The first day of our little jaunt

We had an interesting night in a cabin with 3 dogs, and needed to be up at 5am (uk time) to get off the ferry. It was very cold but our spirits were high, looking forward to our trip. As we headed off, deliberately avoiding motorways to enjoy villages enroute, the dash thermometer got downContinue reading “Jan 22nd – The first day of our little jaunt”

Jan 18 – My turn to cook??? You’re joking, right???

I am incredibly fortunate to have married a lovely person, and a fabulous cook, which has led me to become a little lazy when it comes to sharing duties in the kitchen. My excuse your honour, is that there is no way I would live up to the incredibly high standards of Denise…. But IContinue reading “Jan 18 – My turn to cook??? You’re joking, right???”

Jan 17 – Does he work for MI5?

Owning a dog (especially a Large Munsterlander) can be very therapeutic. They are great characters, and you never know what might occur next…. They also get you out in all weather (as I found out earlier) when today’s photo was taken. Now, back to the title of this post…. Well, Alfie is obsessed with lookingContinue reading “Jan 17 – Does he work for MI5?”

Jan 16 – ch-ch-ch-changes…..

Some changes in our local field today. I felt sorry for the guys out in the weather which was pretty wild today. Different people see change in different ways. For example, some people living in Rogers Close will now have enhanced views across the beautiful countryside toward Frome. Others might think about the impact toContinue reading “Jan 16 – ch-ch-ch-changes…..”
