A day of contrasts

I awoke this morning really early, to the sound of very noisy birds, singing & twittering to their hearts content, not caring at all that there are people trying to sleep on this boat. I was quite excited because today I was travelling to London.   Continue reading “A day of contrasts”

A Pooch Surprise

Back in March I wrote a review on ‘The PoochOnezee’.  I originally wrote the blog post because I genuinely loved the product which I bought for Rosie, our Collie who loves puddles, water and mud and although I love walking Rose, the aftermath has never been much fun, having to use so many towels to dry and clean her in order to save my car and home from the splatter, so I was delighted after buying a PoochOnezee because it ‘did what it said on the tin’. It’s brilliant so I wanted to shout out about it, but I wasn’t expecting the surprise which came through the post after I wrote the review. Continue reading “A Pooch Surprise”

#Throwback Thursday – A cheeky little canal cruise to Sprotbrough – And relax…

I wrote this post last May, before we’d sold the house and moved onto the boat.  We are so looking forward to cruising soon as work commitments and other practicalities have delayed us, but in the mean time it was nice to have a look back at one of our favourite trips.  It was also our cats maiden voyage…

Posted May 2017 – With a long Bank holiday weekend behind us, Jon and I had asked ourselves the question…a short jaunt in Polly the camper van or a little trip out in the canal boat? Continue reading “#Throwback Thursday – A cheeky little canal cruise to Sprotbrough – And relax…”

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!”

Mud, Sweat & Fear!

Just your average weekend away in Wales

We decided we needed to get away for a few days last weekend so we said hello to Polly, our trusty camper van, packed her up and headed off to Coed Llandegla Forest, Wales for a blast on the bikes. Continue reading “Mud, Sweat & Fear!”

It’s all happening…

Moving onto the boat is becoming reality

The whole change of lifestyle and moving onto the boat thing is moving quite rapidly now. Continue reading “It’s all happening…”
