By the way AC wrote some of her novels on Burgh Island off the Devon coast. We lived on the Island for a year over 20 years ago when my OH managed the hotel. Fascinating Art Deco place. It was reached at high tide by a sea tractor.

Good  morning all,

I don't post very often but try to keep up with you all. 

Glad Puncdoc is feeling a little better and hope Hosta and DD are soon on the mend.

It's a lovely day at the moment and the plan today is to clear a big branch of ivy that is blocking the entrance to the bottom field. 

I took my new pup out for her early walk about 7 a.m. and she was really frightened because a fox was screeching nearby. Normally nothing scares her. I also saw an owl. Tawny owl, I think. I hear them often but rarely see them.

Have a good day all. Must go and work off some Christmas choccies.

Happy birthday Hosta.

Morning all,

Sorry some are having awful weather. I was wondering how your pooch is coping with the heat Pat. I'm glad I live near Verdun as he ensures we always have good weather.

I've been planting a small sack of daffodils that my daughter gave me. My 9 week old puppy was a great help! She's having a nap now. I'll be glad when she can go for a proper walk when she's had all her vaccinations as she has so much energy.

By the way does anyone get security warnings when on this site? I'm useless with computers but my SIL put Vipre anti virus on for me but still get warnings saying I'm not protected.

Have a good day all.

Just saying Edd .  Hope you enjoyed Newquay.

Great news Punkdoc.

GWRS Do you live near Epworth? We used to live in Haxey, the next village.

Awful afternoon and my new puppy doesn't like the rain. Such fun walking in the garden in the pouring rain 4.00 in the morning when she wakes up and I know she'll need a wee.

Hello all,

Sorry about your SIL  Punkdoc. My son had a thyroid cancer scare two years ago but was a nodule and had most of the thyroid removed. You'll know much better than me but if it's any consolation it's one of the better cancers to have (if there is such a thing).

There was a little on the news yesterday about the bush fires in Southern Australia. Really terrifying.

I'm also worried about Verdun. Has he been in touch since Ed was in Newquay?

Night night Pat. Don't let the flickies bite. My Scottish Gran used to say this.

That's a good idea Lesley. I've tried to do some Christmas ( are we allowed to mention the word  yet) preparation before she came such as present wrapping. I bought a puppy crate but she cries when I put her in. She had vet's checks yesterday and the vet said to let her cry but easier said than done.  We were told to do that with our children but I never could.

Good morning all.

Lovely photos Liriodenron.

The mother that  Hosta mentioned should be sent on a holiday destination with no internet connection. I read about a device that can attach an IPad to a pushchair. Don't parents talk to their children anymore? My son and family are waiting for an engineer to mend their Sky dish and he said, ' It's awful we have to talk to each other',  but I   think they are enjoying the experience. My grandchildren can hardly believe that when I was young there was only one hour of children's television.

Thanks for all  the comments about my puppy, Kizzy. She is supposed to be a standard labradoodle. My brother said it's really scarey as she could turn out to be an intelligent labrador. I can see why the advice is not to have a new pup at Christmas as she takes up so much time. I think the decorations and tree will have to be well out of her reach.

She's a labradoodle, Dove, but mostly labrador.

 So sorry so many of our little gang are having hard times.

 This is Kizzy my new puppy. She is helping fill the huge hole in my heart after losing my German Shepherd recently.
