We are back in the Cotswolds, but at a different site as everywhere was full for the Bank Holiday weekend (http://www.cotswoldcampsite.co.uk), and although first impressions of the other campers wasn’t good, they soon left and lots of other lovely campers arrived, so all was good and they had a lovely farm shop with café too. We went for a walk around the site and we were so busy sniffing a lovely scent, we totally missed the little deer running out of the bushes and down the track. Mummy was very pleased we missed it, but she found out the next day why we were more interested in the scent. It turned out we found a fox den with cubs who were playing, but didn’t like us much, so no photos, I’m afraid, as mummy was too busy trying to drag us away. On Friday it turned from nice to hail, which we didn’t like much.
On Saturday we went for a really long run and then, after an alfresco breakfast, nanny turned up with Harley & Belle, so we went for a really long walk to our favourite pub, The Inn at Fossebridge. Everything was lovely until Belle had some of my water under the table and I decided to tell her what for. The only problem was, she told me what for even more and I ended up with a cut on my lip and I then felt very sorry for myself.
I was still feeling sorry for myself on Sunday so decided to stay in bed, but then mummy and daddy cooked breakfast outside again so I got up!
It turned out the pub was really rather close as after the lovely meal on Saturday we had walked nanny home a route that was only about a mile, so when I heard we were going to the pub again today I was quite excited, but turns out daddy had planned an even longer route for us today. Good job nanny was only here for the day yesterday, as I don’t think she would’ve liked an even longer walk. Jim was quite tired when we got there…well he wasn’t as he’s still young, but I liked to think he was as I was still feeling sorry for myself, so mummy consoled me with lots of chips!
When we got home, using the short cut, scratchy was very pleased to see us.
And then we all had a cuddle on the bed but Jim got pushed down to the bottom as usual…hehe!
Monday was Bank Holiday and we were all very tired so we decided to go to our favourite walk in the Cotswolds, Cleeve Hill. However just as we got in the car, it started raining, and by the time we got there it was quite torrential. We got up to the top but I really wasn’t happy about this, so I kicked off lots, and mummy got fed up too, so we headed back down. When we got back it had stopped and the sun was out again, so after drying off we sat outside again and daddy cooked dinner outside.
Although, it started to rain a bit again, so we went inside and mummy and daddy sat under the zipdee awning and out popped a double rainbow.
On Tuesday we were up very early and headed back to Thame to see some customers, so we had to sit in the car. It was very warm, so mummy kept the meeting short and parked us in the shade with all the windows open. Then we went with mummy to see nanny and grandad. That was great fun and Jim was very pleased to see Daisy. When daddy got back, we all went for a walk to play ball, which is really tiring as Daisy is very quick and I am not quite as quick as I used to be. Mummy tries to throw the ball in my direction but it doesn’t always work and Daisy does get it when I let her. Also she never gets tired so I have to keep playing so that I don’t show any signs of weakness. This is just between you and me, right? Molly was tired when we got back, even though she doesn’t even play ball with us.
Then mummy and daddy went kickboxing to surprise all their friends, who were really pleased to see them, even though only two weeks previously they told them it would be 4 months before they were back!! It was a long drive home and a very late night, but it was worth it to see everyone. In the morning we packed up and got ready to move. The brake cable had come off again, so daddy did one of his great repairs, although they aren’t that great otherwise they wouldn’t keep coming off!! Once he fixed it we left the Cotswolds and headed North. So, until next time, Love & Licks, Rosie xxxx
