Dog Blog: It is a tough life

Posted by indigodream on 26 June, 2009

When Sue goes gallivanting off to London being famous (not really), dogs have to go into the office.

It’s tough. First there is the mandatory sausage sandwich in the morning. Then they have to climb the stairs and get down to serious work.

This is despite things getting in the way:

Then there is the reading to catch up on

Boat blog: Weekend without us – photoblog

Posted by indigodream on 26 June, 2009

Cousin Denise has kindly sent on some photos from her weekend on the boat. They enjoyed using her as a base but son Rhodri says that they’ll do a ‘proper’ boating holiday next time and do some cruising every day! He’s almost tall enough to steer and almost strong enough to do the locks so it won’t be long…….

The boat does fit through that bridge - honest!

Peering over the edge - there's some big trucks down there; apparently they hit the aqueduct from time to time but it's still standing!
