Chillin on Easter Monday

Whilst the Smiley Lady potters about in the garden(she’s covered the veg boxes with plastic sheeting over a frame and got very cross when I went under to explore) and continues clearing junk from the house (can’t help with that either)… Nothing else for it but to chill……

Rolo’s Easter Sunrise

Rolo was extremely surprised to be winkled out of his basket at 5am, bundled into the car and driven to Clench Common. There, released from the car, on a long lead (it was still dark!) he went into husky mode and dragged me 15 minutes uphill where 30 or so bleary eyed Christians and a few dogs gathered to take communion on Easter Sunday at sunrise. Despite having 10 consecutive glorious sunrises alas it was misty and damp but I’m glad we made the effort. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.

Good to see St George’s Preshute full this morning too! My first chocolate in 6 weeks…it’s going straight to my head and, I fear, my hips!

Easter joy to you all! P.s. Rolo is still trying to work out why I got a biscuit and a drink on our dark walk and he got nothing!

This is what happens in the afternoon when you get up ridiculously early!

Brill walkies

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

We had a marvellous long circular walk through unexplored territory yesterday! The smiley lady met up with an old school friend mid way between their homes which happened to be Brill, Buckinghamshire. Here’s the link¬†http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/media/947388/brill_boarstall.pdf. The walk takes about 2 1/2 hours – more if you are not brill at map reading haha. I thought the smiley lady was supposed to have been a scout leader once upon a time!
It was lots of fun – we started at a windmill (Brill) and waded through muddy puddles (well I did), saw bluebell woods just coming into flower, a yellow hammer, a skylark, a hare, a couple of wandering chickens probably playing chicken…it was a fabulous and exhausting walk (well, the ladies were exhausted – I could have done it all again!)

Rolo finds an early Easter bunny

A lovely sunny morning and the smiley lady took me out early as she has a big yellow monster on the drive and she seems to be emptying the contents of the house into it. I’m keeping out of the way! Up poo alley we spied the trees breaking out in leaf and I pretended I didn’t see a young grouse ahead of me running on the path as I didn’t want to upset her.

When we got to St George’s, Preshute I spied a strange creature in the tree perhaps lost. I hope it will be reunited with its small owner before Easter!

The smiley lady went to great lengths to plant potatoes in her new raised beds. I soon realised this was not a game and that I wasn’t to dig up the treasure and ‘fetch’. Now there’s netting over them. Presumably to keep someone off. Next doors rabbits?

Rolo spies a tractor

20140412-064659.jpg

Out for our late afternoon stroll yesterday ‘what’s that coming over the hill is it a monster?’ No Rolo. It’s a tractor. No wonder the birds are flocking round the newly turned earth!

Guess who’s back from his holiday

Well did ya miss me?! Spent the week with a golden retriever having lots of fun on new territory whilst the smiley lady went to Crete. Not much of a tan! I think she missed me though.

Great to be back on my territory… There’s a lapwing on the now ploughed field..the distinctive cry of ‘pee-wit’ and the aerial acrobatics! Blossoms out in the hedgerow.

This afternoon we planted some veg seeds in the strange dirt boxes in the back garden. I wanted to help with the covering with soil but she kept shouting at me and has wrapped the boxes in cling film and netting. I will be very surprised if anything grows! Oh and apparently she doesn’t want me watering it.
