Here's my desk this morning.



A few weeks ago someone asked where I kept all my crafting stash.  Some in my desk, but it's mainly in the two large sideboards, small console table and large console table.  Then my wood mounted stamps and punches are in the shoe organiser hanging inside a cupboard in my living room.

Milestone Barn, Gimingham, Norfolk 7th - 14th July, 2018

Last week I went on my first proper holiday (not staying with family or dog sitting for my friend) for about 30 years.

I went with my friend Hilary and all 5 of our dogs (4 Greyhounds and 1 Pointer).  None of the dogs had been on holiday before.

Our cars resembled this:



I noticed an article in the Homer magazine (Greyhound Trust) about dog friendly places to stay.  Oh and they didn't charge for the dogs.  After looking at the properties that East Ruston Cottages had, we settled on Milestone Barn.  It suited all out needs, especially mine being all on one level, having a wet room, toilet frame and shower seat.

Here's their web site:  http://www.eastrustoncottages.co.uk/


Here are some of the 109 photos Hilary and I took.

My photo does not do it justice.  We sat at the dining table looking out across the valley.

Can't wait for our week in October next year.

The Great Global Greyhound Walk 2 018

Last Sunday my Friend Hilary and I took two of our Greyhounds to The Great Global Greyhound Walk.

This started as an annual walk for Greyhounds and other site hounds to get together.  As the number of walks grew in this country, word got out to other countries wanted to take part.  This year there were 100 registered UK walks and 103 registered walks around the rest of the world.  The walk takes place on a Sunday in June, so everyone is supposed to walk on that day.  Obviously other countries may well fall on a different day, but they should walk on the same date that's allocated each year.

At the walk we went on there were 74 hounds.  Over 3,000 walked  in the UK and numbers are still coming in.  Don't know the total for the world yet.


Here we all are.




My friend is on the left of me in the blue fleece with purple t-shirt.  I'm the one in the short sleeved fleece slightly behind a lady with long hair.




Hilary took this one of me holding both our dogs.  My Honey is the one standing face on.


The weather couldn't have been much better.  The walk got done before the sun really got out and the temps rose.  A lot of the walk is under trees, so they kept us cool.

After the walk there was a tombola and raffle.  Various cakes were on offer along with drinks.  Most of us took a picnic.    We managed to nab a picnic table under a tree, so we were in the shade.   Later there were various games.  Some just for the humans, others for humans and dogs.  The sausage race was a great hit with everyone.

If you want to see more photos from walks around the world, just click on this link:

Honey Loves Winnie The Pooh

The number of times I look up and there's Honey with her Winnie The Pooh Bear.  She sure does love him.


He can be used as a pillow.



He can be used to block out the light.



Best of all he can be cuddled.




We hope you have a fab Friday and a lovely weekend.

A Leash Of Greyhounds

I went with my friend Hilary to a Greyhound walk.  She took her Greyhound Flora and I took Honey.  My Polly and Hilary's big Greyhound Milo would have found it too hot and the walk too far, so they stayed at home.  The walk was held at a country park.  Really beautiful place.  Most of our walk was under the trees, so they helped to keep us cooler.

There must have been around 25 Greyhounds.  If you didn't know by the Title of this post, a group of Greyhounds is known as a Leash.



Hilary took these two photos.

Honey leaning against  me and Flora standing.




Me with the girls.
