Today I woke up to grey skies and fog apparently due to a Saharan sand cloud that is currently covering many parts of the British Isles. I felt it was too depressing to take a photograph of this and I decided now that the Rape Seed is back in bloom that I would show a photograph I took around this time last year instead.
Having had a lovely Mothers Day on Sunday, I have been busy at the office as I will be finishing tomorrow for a weeks annual leave and I cannot wait. We will be off to Scotland on Saturday and I am looking forward to many more photo opportunities of the beautiful scenery which I will share with you on our return.
We will be taking two of the four paws with us this trip whilst Monty and Buster are off on their own little holiday at a local kennels. Monty is six now and has never particularly liked traveling and as it's such a long way we decided it wasn't very fare to make him come a long. Buster on the other hand still needs some work on his manners. We were told when we took him on last October that he was lead trained and loved to go on long walks. Well if that was supposed to be the case I think someone forgot to mention it to Buster. D is not a small built man by any means but on the first occasion on which he took Buster out almost ended up in a hedge as Buster pulled like a train at the excitement of being out. He has come on a long way in the few months we've had him but on this occasion we felt it would be better if he stayed behind to keep Monty company. The couple that run the kennels have many years experience and a large paddock for the boys to run about in. I'm sure they will have a ball but just like it used to feel the night before any of the children when on a school residential trip I am feeling a little apprehensive today.
So these two will be packing their little bags ready for their first holiday. Romeo absolutely loves going in the car and watching the world go by. The decision to take Rufus was more out of the fact that the holiday was already booked when we agreed to take him on and as he's had two new homes in as many months we didn't want him to feel he was being abandoned again. Debbie out groomer told D that he cried the first time he left him with her he must of thought he was moving home again and wondered what on earth it was he had done that was so terrible that he was on the move again. Still he is very much a part of our family and home now and won't be going anywhere else to live again. He seems to be another one who likes going in the car but unlike Romeo he just tends to curl up fast a sleep.
I have books stored in readiness on my Kindle so all that remains is for me to decided which crochet or knitting project I should take with me although I will be on the lookout for wool shops whilst away probably much to D & number 3's disappointment.
Hope you all have a good week and don'y work too hard will you.
