“Come on dogs!” Came the cry from Batty as we were soaking up the sun on this beautiful November day! “The forecast is for very cold weather to hit us within the next few days!” What was she talking about?
Immediately we were thrown into moving bags of manure and pricking ourselves on all the rose cuttings. We were informed that it was essential to get these prickly beasts well covered!
Then down in Devon Daisy was being rushed from shop to shop to find a special heater for Tilly, a Norwegian Forest cat, in her little summer house. The problem is that she keeps on bringing mice into the house and anything else she can catch! Babs is fed up with the hours spent chasing animals around the place at night! She has a a net to catch them in but her sleep is severely disturbed. So the summer house has been equipped with heating and very warm bedding.! So spoiled!
The cold spell arrives! Yes very cold first thing in the morning! Not a chance of a lay-in! Off to catch the spectacular sunrise. Once at the top of the hill the clouds hide the sun! However, we find the horses are also feeling the cold. They have an extra coat though!
Coco’s mother is taken up to London and buys a new winter coat. It looks so snug! Oh to be warm! A cuppa would not come a miss!
Have a great warm week!
“Winter is coming.”
