Five And Four
Following my 40 mins reminder of work I went on to Cwm Dulyn. I'd loaded the van with dogs and had Nico and Jezi in the back and the three older ladies in the front. Give or take a few choice swear words between the sisters it worked well and the walks were successful. Jezi was first onto the rock, followed closely by Nico .. their ears flapping in the sharp breeze that I was not prepared for. Much more windy there than at home today, Still I was sheltered from the strongest gusts on the lower path.
Tali of course headed straight for the water, as it was so cold part of me wanted to stop her, but common sense prevailed and I let her do what she wanted! The only problem she had was going down off the bridge. I think she couldn't quite see the steps and opted to jump it. Luckily I'd seen her apprehension at the top and got hold of her collar just before she launched herself off! I posted this photo on Facebook with the heading "Tali .. TAli .... TALI ... Get out of there it's freezing cold!" "Feck off!" Someone suggested that because Tali was standing in freezing cold water and refusing to come out that she could be going a little senile. You have to laugh don't you, they obviously don't realise that I've had almost 13 years of this, Tali always does what Tali wants!
On my way home I was picking up Steve's prescription from the Doctors and became aware of how dirty and scruffy I looked so I decided to take my mud covered waterproof trousers off before going in. I got home and told Steve .. "I was embarrassed so took my waterproof trousers off before going into the doctors. " He said "What? You took your trousers off to go into the doctors?" Haha .. Men they never listen!
Ross' show collars came, they are too small. What an idiot. I measured the one he's currently using at 26" and thought right I need the next size up, and what do I go and do? Order two 26" collars. They are lovely, but what a waste of bloody money. I'm telling you my train of thought has definitely left the station without me these days!
The weather is set to break after the week end .. disappointing, but we really shouldn't complain, weather wise it's been a wonderful beginning to 2018.
