.....Mow the lawn

Or Cut the grass !!!!!

Well Paul and Amanda this one's for you!
I had a polite email telling me off!

In Paul's own words!

Hi just read your latest blog . Now then Angela you lived in Bristol with a Bristolian long enough to make you almost Bristolian!
We don't MOW the LAWN we CUT THE GRASS !!!!!! just thought I 'd remind you .

He he got ya!

Anyway back to the serious stuff!

It's very strange just having one car, I have to remember to take the dogs leads and my foot ware out after each trip out, as Ian needs it during the week to go to work!
We are learning to plan each week, this week I need to take the dogs to the vets, they all need weighing and Red has to have her Cartrophen injection and poor Buzzy keeps going lame on a back leg after a long free run. So after arranging that, I then had to arrange picking up the dogs bones on the same day. So I will have to drive Ian to work and then do all the trips out, at least that day the dogs will get a different walk! ...and then remember to go and pick Ian up after he has finished work!
Luckily the food shopping is done on line, so that is okay.
It also means walking from home with the dogs, which involves 20 Min's lead walking before they can run free for 20 Min's to then go back on their leads, to walk 20 Min's home again. It's not an exciting walk for me, although the view is great you can see the sea in the distance but it can be rather noisy, if the wind is blowing the wrong way, as you can still hear and see the A30, but the dogs don't seem to mind.

I keep telling myself it's only temporary.

I had arranged to go up country this week to see my Mum and then go on up further to have an agility lesson, but that all had to change after selling the Bongo, anyway Ian suggested I went up country just to have the lesson and chill with Auntie Elaine, so after teaching the babies on Saturday off I went - Luckily my buddy and instructor had a free slot for us and the caravan was free - Thanks.

Wow what a lesson - poor Elaine had a lot of areas to sort out and I'm not sure whether she managed it all in the time we had together, but over dinner we wrote it down, just so I could have half a chance of remembering key areas.
Mindy was great and she coped with working and playing in a new area-well most of the time, she did tell us that Max was watching the other side of the fence, but she managed to get her self back on track!
......and Yes, Elaine and Dawn are right it's my handling that is letting Harry down (I did know that really!)

You really do need regularly 1-2-1 lesson folks, it's great having group ones too, but .........

Anyway the following morning we took all nine dogs in the same van! out for a walk. least driving home the dogs where all quiet and slept, before they knew it we where home!

I'm getting really excited - not hard I know, as Mum and Adrian (my Brother) are coming down to see us all next weekend and this will only be their second visit, since we moved here, so lets hope it's not raining and we get to have a nice walk around the gardens. I'm so excited!
