Bad blogger!

Cant believe how quick the time is flying by.....

Ian has had two weeks off, so we have been doing what you should do when your on holiday relaxing! .........well some of the time, Ian had a list of places he wanted to visit and things he wanted to do on his time off, I say Ian as really, as I don't work, I get to do what i want to do every day!
This is an amazing photo, as none of our dogs cuddle up, but as you can see the two collies where really tired after, a long weekend away at an agility show, followed by a 4 hour drive home and an evening beach walk!
Bad Harry had two baths over that weekend having found "Fox poo" to roll in, good job we where in the caravan and not the tent!
So we have gone on some lovely walks with the dogs, woods are my favourite especially at this time of year, with the leaves just starting to fall, but it's still warm under their canopy and both the woods we played in, we don't do normally, Cardinham Woods (Bodmin) and Kingswood Wood (on the way to Mevagissy) both had rivers, so we where able to wash them off, without them actually realising that was what we where doing!

The beaches are still quite busy, good for the dogs for socialising, although Mindy after her first beach walk was back to going far to far away from us chasing seagulls, so she was back on an extendable, she just runs and runs, she cant hear or see you when she gets into that "Zone" and for me it's too dangerous.
We went to Newquay Zoo, for a couple of hours one day, not as big as Bristol Zoo, never seen a "Sloth" before, so I suppose it was enjoyable, in a strange way, I'm not into Zoo's. Ian always calls Harry a Sloth, so I had to take a picture of him sat in a tree doing nothing or was he "Sleeping"

I would like to go to Combe Martin and see the wolves, one day!

I love watching the Penguins, could do that all day long.

We went to Mevagissy a small fishing harbour, just out side of St Austell, we have been there many times before but not since we moved down here to Cornwall.

As we had to walk past the "Pixie" Gnome garden, so had to take a photo, for friends who are mad about them and have loads, we did buy them a few, years ago and when we went camping at an agility show one time, we popped a few in their garden when no one was looking........we did own up in the end!

On another day, we went to Healey's Cyder farm, which for me was the best trip out! we sampled many Cyders (pear the best) and wines and jams, chutneys and mustard, had a guided tour and a tractor ride, tickled a shire horse and smiled at a big hairy cow which for the life of me I cant remember their breed name.....

Along with our trips out, we have caught up a lot, on some projects that needed doing, the "loft" shed roof needed replacing, when we rebuilt it we used a lot of the old corrugated roofing that looked great, but over the winter we realised it wasn't so good for a shed that we used as the "loft" so all the trophy's, camping gear, pictures and photos and having pulled out some photos that I had thought Mum could scan onto the computer, memories of me when I was a child, riding horses, playing with school friends etc...and finding them wet and totally ruined, I was devastated, all gone, just have to try and keep them in my mind new roof it has!

Ian wanted to replace the breeze block steps around the place with granite ones which he managed to save from doing the driveway, they look great just one step left to do. We also needed to raise the concrete around the side of the big long shed and slop it so the rain water would go a different way, so I was the wheel barrow girl, as the last time when I did the mixing up of the cement and concrete I think I lost count on a couple of loads and so it didn't mix too good and would not set!!

Ian at the moment has just finished welding up a base of a seesaw for Sue and is just about to start sorting out the wiring on the Disco, so that we can charge the caravan battery and fridge, whilst towing.

That's why I'm catching up blogging, oh and the bacon's defrosting ready for a bacon sandwich! Yummy

Although I should be outside, staking up some baby trees, before winter winds and I should do a close cut with the mower around the edges down the bottom in the agility bit and pull up the last of the carrots.......I'm on holiday you know!
