Best laid plans of mice and men apparently don’t apply to mothers!
You may recall I was anticipating a beach trip today and lots of photographs … here’s what actually happened!
First off I did get a nights sleep – my first in a week. Second off the Cairn had to go to the vet first thing for a staple in her wound – so everything got delayed. We got to the town and had agreed to pop into a big department store – I had a rather generous gift card from there as a Christmas present and a national paper was running an offer for a few days which made that voucher worth120%. We got out of the car and as we walked to the store Mother says “I don’t think we will do the beach today it is too cold … don’t you think?” well actually I didn’t and I said so. We got back to the car and Daddy asked where to next … Mother said she had nothing else to do and I said neither had I and it would have been left there except Daddy then asked why we needed dog towels with us. I said we were going to the beach but it was okay I would walk the dogs when we got back to the house so he over ruled Mother.
I took the boys on a lovely beach in the roaring wind – it was what the wee man needed. He normally covers around 25 miles a week and had done about 1 mile this week – no wonder he is behaving stir crazy with one of the other dogs?
As we set off there was another first for me – a Snow Bow …
It really was snowing and hailing as that appeared – really strange.
I also took a portrait of the bitch who always greets me like a long lost friend when I visit … she has a nickname because she always looks down in the mouth and I referred to it once as her “mooey face” so she gets called Moo or Mini Moo (and answers to them!)
… and then because she is a bit of a diva she decided to show me her best side in action close up …
Yes it is blurry … but I will miss Moo when we go home tomorrow.
I have spent the evening being quizzed about food items I could take home with me … how many ways can I say “I do not eat refined carbs and especially sugar”?
Better get some sleep before the long car ride tomorrow …
