It’s National Puppy Day!

Yeahy! I couldn’t let this day pass!

Most readers of my blog will know that two members of our family are our dogs, Rosie (Collie) and Mille (Pug).  We love them, they are such characters so I thought I’d embarrass them both by showing their puppy photo’s as it’s National Puppy Day. Continue reading “It’s National Puppy Day!”

Mud? Who cares!

For as long as I can remember I have been around dogs.  I grew up with dogs and as soon as I left home and was able to care for one myself well, I didn’t hesitate.

Dogs have been a major part of my life and I can’t imagine my life without them.

I have spoken in previous posts about selling up to live on a boat, well the business I sold last year was a Dog Walking and Petsitting business which I set up and ran for four years and if we hadn’t made the decision to move away and live on our boat, then I’d still be there dog walking and Continue reading “Mud? Who cares!”

Thursday Photo Prompt – Ahead #writephoto

“Mummy mummy, that’s a man!” Amy was excited as she tugged at her mummy’s arm, “look, over there!” she pointed,

“Where?” said her mummy as she looked in the direction of where Amy was pointing, “I can’t see a man Amy.”

Amy tried again, “He’s there, over there!” Amy pointed again, but her mum wasn’t seeing this man anywhere, “he’s got funny green hair!” Amy continued.

“Shh Amy, if there is a man, he might hear you!” Amy’s mum looked again toward where Amy was pointing, frowning and shaking her head she said impatiently, “Amy there is no man, now come on”  Amy’s mum pulled Amy in the direction they were walking, embarrassed because she could see I was sat with my dog, Rose on a small rock eating my packed lunch and knowing I could hear them.

Amy kept looking back in the direction of where she had pointed, obviously frustrated and upset that her mum hadn’t listened to her.   They quickly disappeared down the path, I could hear Amy crying.

“We can see the man can’t we Rose?” I whispered in Rose’s ear.  Rose pricked up her ears and wagged her tail, “If Amy’s mum had just stopped, given her a little time, patience and used a little imagination, then she would’ve seen him too, wouldn’t she Rose?” I shrugged and looked back at the view in front of us, “he does have funny green hair!” I said as I bit into my sandwich.

#Throwback Thursday! It’s time to sell up and live on a boat!

(First posted 5 Mar 2017)   This was more or less a year ago now and when I think back to the amount of work which went into actually achieving this I’m really quite amazed it only took a year.  From selling a business and a house, to packing up, I wrote another post on de-cluttering, storing everything we couldn’t take with us to the boat, then moving on, (doesn’t actually sound a lot does it?) What a year!! Just made me smile when I read this again, we’d just come back from our first visit to Canada and during that holiday had made a BIG decision…   It’s time to sell up and live on a boat
