Winter walking

Glorious day today.

We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle

    Beautiful shots of the beach and your adorable dogs. I can’t wait to finally move to Orkney (once our house sells) so I can go on these sort of walks every day with my little girl and Westie.

      Welcome to the blog, Steph. Good luck with selling your house, it’s never an easy time, is it?

      Suzie, Griff and Nell say that they would love to share a walk with your Westie!
