Train Ride

This morning we have been for a ride on a narrow gauge railway. I would tell you the name of it but it slips my mind at the moment, I was having to much fun to remember the minor details.


After a spot of shopping we are enjoying a pint of beer with cod and chips before taking a boat trip on the Norfolk boards.

A good day but missing the dogs.

We have just arrived at the Holiday Inn Norwich after spending the afternoon looking around Norwich Castle Museum. We are just taking a break. Before going down for a spot of dinner. It's been a good day but I always miss the dogs who are at home being looked after by a kind friend.

Break to Norfolk

Today we embark on a three day break to Norfolk by coach so I get to sit back and take in the views instead of driving.

The return of winter.

This evening we had another snow storm, we've now had more snow this past couple of days than we had all last winter.
 Last night when I went to put the dogs in for the night Blondie was laid on the lawn unable to stand up and when I tried to get her up she cried out in pain. After trying one thing or another I eventually managed to get her in to the kennels. I worried about her all night and went out early as possible this morning hoping to see her up and about but there was no change in her condition so I called my boss and he told me that it is something that happens to her when she has had a lot of exercise which he admitted to her having that previous afternoon. She has had lots of tests done in the past and they seem to think that it's a sort of physiological problem so what I had to do was to lift her with a strap around her tummy and then just hold her there for a few minutes and she quickly recovered. It was quite amazing because she went from looking like she was paralysed to running around the kennels in the space of about five minutes. I can't tell you how relieved I was.

Dahlia planting in the memorial gardens.

Today I have planted another lot of Dahlia's, this time in the memorial gardens.

Dahlia tubers Border Princess loaded up and waiting to be placed ready for planting after first applying a dressing of bonemeal.

There are eighty five tubers which I have spaced out roughly two feet apart. I put them all in place before planting that way I can space them evenly.
I just got the job finished before a random snow storm, thankfully the snow didn't lay around for long
