And what a day. I took lots of pictures but most contained the friends we went for a walk with and I'm just not comfortable publishing them online. Trigger had his coat off, although not here - it was still minus one this early on our way to see the Madams. Our shadows look like I'm standing with a camel :
The dogs were ecstatic to be out for so long..........
........and with their friend Bracken too:
The birds were feeling frisky
I love this one with number three coming in to land:
She did peck him and he did fly off:
A Nuthatch too tall for the camera.......
..........who found a rogue peanut amongst the seeds:
Mrs GSW is disappointed with the lack of vertical porridge:
I woke in the night to the hammering of rain on the windows and a feeling of inevitability. At least I didn't have to go and check if we were flooded. I had to take these with my phone, not wishing to risk the camera. They are taken at the bottom of the drive with the stream close to breaking point AGAIN and water pouring off the moor into it.
I'm trying to hang on to what it was like yesterday:
It's half term. Wasn't it just Christmas? OB and friend are shrieking upstairs as I write this and the dogs are fighting over a plastic frisbee thing. There are bits of the frisbee all over the floor. I don't know why I bother hoovering. Snippet is pulling Jack along the floor by the ear now. They need to get out. I did walk them after lunch and we all came back completely drenched. Jack can now outrun Snippet with ease. Poor Snip. He has to try and get his own back I suppose. Until next time, here they are (phone pic) looking innocent. We know better.
