Amie's Valentine's card from Molly and Lisa
When you've had a bad day, with maybe more bad news to come, the wonder of my blogging friends is that they are always there. My friend Lisa sent this to Amie from her dog Molly.
It couldn't have arrived at a better time than today. Lisa and I go back a few years. There are times when an emergency crops up, especially when anything with four legs around here always wait for the weekend to be ill. Lisa is always at the other end of an email with advice if ever we need it.
Everyone is well around here, so don't get me wrong. What on earth could be wrong when you wake up to such a beautiful day. This was Dartmoor this morning.
To good to stay in bed or hang around inside after such a bad Winter.
We like going to Totnes Market on Saturdays. One of us likes it more than the other as they sell real cheese. By real cheese, I mean cheese that doesn't have a cellophane and plastic wrapping. You can also get to test everything first.
You can always tell the weather is getting warmer as the buskers appear on the street.
The guy sitting in the corner sounded good, shame I didn't get a better picture.
I'm not sure if there is anywhere else in Britain that you would see kids busking.
I'm sure their parents were around somewhere.
They needed a bit more practise bless them, maybe they were there for the cute factor with their violins
I always like to go to Totnes, it has a castle.
I pass it but have never been to the top of the hill to take a closer look.
As I said it's been really wet around here this week. Ames had to have her coat on just for a quick visit outside. She normally trots in hotly followed by
Frank, who waits to be dried off. He has his own towel in the kitchen.
He doesn't always get it right. The idea is to stand on the mat by the door before coming any further into the cottage. Tries hard.
The back roads really were wet and soggy this morning.
Maybe the water theme is something I need to get used to. We came home and realised we have a water leak somewhere under the cottage floor. Why are they called Emergency plumbers if they can't come out until after the weekend ?
Might have to sit back and see what happens on Monday, in the meantime, I have a new book to read from lovely Lisa. She remembered my passion for Alice in Wonderland. I have only had time to glance at the cover. It's going upstairs in the dry.
Lisa has a lovely fun, and colourful blog, you can find Lisa HERE
In case I'm not able to make another post for a while, reference, the cottage floor being dug up with a pneumatic drill.
Thought I had better show you the tomato's that were planted earlier in the week...... they're growing.
