Grand daughter's weekend - lovely
Just had our 13 year old GD for the weekend. And what a lovely weekend we have had. She has a 7 year old Basset a really lovely tempered dog you could ever wish to meet.
We took her up to our allotment on Saturday so she could be loose and because we had nothing in our beds she could run around to her hearts content. She does spend alot of time in the house!! on her own. She went completely mad running up and down the paths. My GD has a bed in the allotment where she grows flowers and heathers, she also has a large trug which we have made into a pond. Honey leant over the pond to have a drink and fell in head first with only her hind legs sticking out.
So we all grabbed her and yanked her out, she seemed no worse for wear.
Just a little shocked. She settled down after that.
We managed to get all the beds rotorvated, after having no rain for a good two weeks. We also planted our two first early potatoes.
I have lots of things going on in the polytunnel. Our GD loves spending time at the allotment. On Sunday we did a five mile walk all together it was wonderful, the weather was brilliant, and the dog and the GD loved it. So a good time was had by all.
Finally I made a Delias roast vegetable lasagne for tea, not expecting GD to stay (she is not keen on veggies). She stayed and ended up having seconds of the lasagna, absolutely loved it.
Today we have spent all day in our back garden, which is not huge, weeding and clearing lots of things. We have a resident male blackbird which is very tame and spent most of the day very close by. It looks like it might be feeding young.
