Snow Play Time…

The so-called “Beast from the East” arrived overnight and we finally got about 3 inches of snow.  Now, those of you know my blog, know I love snow and have been waiting for a good snowfall since 2010, and today it arrived, but it did not last too long as the sun came out and the…

Puppy Party…

Saturday Mazikeen went to a puppy party.  The party only had 6 puppies at it, as the organiser keeps it to that level so it is not too overwhelming for all the dogs there.  Mazikeen had a great time, and again gained lots more confidence in doing things and with the other dogs there.  It…

I Am! by John Clare

I am—yet what I am none cares or knows; My friends forsake me like a memory lost: I am the self-consumer of my woes— They rise and vanish in oblivious host, Like shadows in love’s frenzied stifled throes And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed Into the nothingness of scorn and noise, Into the…

Lunch…

Bloody Plumbing…

So the dishwasher arrived on time on Sunday and the delivery men were fantastic, putting the thing where I needed it to be. But, and there is always a but, as I have mentioned in the past, the plumbing became a nightmare.  Where the washing machine drains out was not big enough to drain both…

Waiting Game…

I’ve bought a Dishwasher.  I bit the proverbial bullet and bought one.  We used to have one in our old home as there was a place for it, but when we moved to the village, even though this kitchen is five times bigger, there was no space for it.  Now, when I say no space,…

Winter Sunset…

I took this whilst walking the dogs on the edge of the fields, pine trees peppered about, the sun heading towards the horizon with only the beach and sea below it. .blogphotophotographpostsunsetwinter sun

Misty Woods…

I thought I would share my photo of the woods.  Although I would take the heat of the summer anytime, the winter has some lovely moments.  The mist was fading away, the bright winter sun was burning through, dappling the path and colouring the foliage. beautycountrymistnaturephotophotographwinterwoods
