Pretty butterfly. Loads of them on the buddleia this afternoon.


That’s for sure! Totally under the paw, but I don’t mind. Time with just me and Poppy is time well spent. She’s been so good to have around through all these lockdowns.

Nah she was contemplating a snooze. We went to a secure dog field today, with another dog. Much ball was chased, and tunnels raced through. Wore them both out pretty well.

Pensive puppy.


How much?! My water bill is under £10 a month. But then I don’t often use the hosepipe & there’s only me to wash (& occasionally Poppy).


She usually is - unless she's standing at the door glaring at me because she has decided it's bedtime. 20:50 every night. Which is not my idea of bedtime!

Puppy got trimmed & floofed.


An ideal opportunity for the Hairy Bikers.

It isn't. A welcome change!

Yuck, just had to resort to antihistamines. Got bitten several times when mowing the lawn a couple of days ago. Nasty bites & today I've felt queasy & light-headed. My throat has felt a bit closed up too, so hoping the tablets will take the edge off the reaction I'm having. Might have been better to take them when it started, but hey!
I wouldn't mind, but I had socks and hiking boots on, yet whatever got me seems to have got through those defences. 😡
