Chasing the leaves!

Leaves are everywhere! Oh how we love chasing leaves! Each time Batty starts to sweep them up we just go chasing in! It is lovely to see the wrinkles on her face tighten with rage! We always have the upper hand because we can run faster! The ducks enjoyed the peace and quiet until we Read More…

Forgetting one’s age exhausts others.

Coco and Pika here! We are slightly concerned that Batty may have forgotten her age! She took her eldest Granddaughter to Blenheim Palace for a special day where they walked for over six hours. They also had a beautiful meal in the Orangery there. Granddaughter was exhausted! Then she whizzed down to Bournmouth, the next Read More…

Tennis over!!

Thank goodness we are back on an even keel! Honestly over the last two weeks we have had the shortest of walks and suffered so much tension. It has been nothing but tennis! First of all we had to cope with a dog walker for a day at Wimbledon. How anyone can sit and move Read More…

The Quiet of the House and Countryside

Not so! Batty does not believe in all work and no play!  Her mantra is “ENJOY” So each day we went Read More…

Fussy plus that Boot!

Yesterday was the hottest May day since 1944! So instead of just lazing around we were bundled into the car to the Garden Centre. Fortunately Batty is very fussy in the heat. She won’t leave us in the car for a moment. So we trudge round for the perfect colour of Geranium! All found and Read More…

Have I got Nits?

Hi Daisy here reporting from Budleigh Salterton. Just had Batty down here for a few days. On arrival she gave me some attention and then plonked herself  into a chair and the chatting started!  There was silence for a short while. She sat there scratching her head.   “I think there is a spider in my Read More…
