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:

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.

WOYWW 18th July, 2018

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog

I missed the last two WOYWW, as I had a lot on the first week and then was on holiday last week.  No crafting, but here's my desk this morning.  Just some statements to go through.

Happy WOYWW.
