Never Walk A Dog In Your Pyjamas......& Spring IS here


 
The last job of the evening is a brief dog walk. When bladders have been emptied and the grass verge sniffed, the terriers make their beds for the night and  I can settle down in my big armchair with my " jimjams" on.
My jimjams consist of a extra large pair of Chris' old pyjama bottoms and my second best Walking Dead T shirt....it's an eclectic look.
Last night, I had to take our oldest dog , Meg out for a very late wee. She' s a nervy character and never quite got her bladder working on the dog's final walk of the day...and so, in my jimjams, I sneaked into the lane with Meg on her lead.
I really should have known better
Pyjamas gape at the crotch
And car headlights illuminate every detail
So
Apologies to the two young women driving a white fiat...
I didn't flash  my goolies on purpose
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Errrr , on a brighter note
Life in Trelawnyd is lumbering into spring proper

The Welsh Poppies are flowering in the garden

The broody buff and her chicks are now out in their new run

 
And in the kitchen incubator, there is the little "peep,peep, peep" from the ducklings trapped within their shells, three eggs, so far, are showing those tell tale spider cracks 
from sharp little hatching beaks.
Hey ho

    I bet your local magistrate wishes he had a pound for every time he's heard that....

  4. They'll be dining out on the story of the 'Welsh Pyjama Flasher' for years to come, at least they didn't drive off the road in shock, and lets just hope it wasn't the local magistrate driving the car!!

    You can't beat watching eggs hatch out and those first mad tumbles they do into the world, lovely to watch, it can eat up sooooo much of your time :-)

  5. Can't wait to see pics of the ducklings. We had a batch in our spare room (and bath) a couple of years back. Gorgeous, but then they grew, and grew, and grew, so the farmer's market beckoned....

  23. "Errrr , on a brighter note..."

    What could possibly be brighter than a pair of dangling goolies illuminated by Halogen headlights?

  25. D'ye ken John Gray with his coat so gay?
    D'ye ken John Gray at the break o' day?
    D'ye ken John Gray when he's far, far a-way.
    With his hounds and his horn hanging out in the morning?

    If old pudden face can do it!

  26. Sweet little chicks and mum.
    The flowers are so pretty, and 'sunny'.
    You should don a 'cod-piece' for those late evening wee-walks :)

    1. You don't do you... I guess there's no demand.
      It's a lost occupation, like lamplighters and bus conductors.

  29. Ever think that maybe Chris wouldn't wear them anymore for that reason?

  30. My pal Al says that the only time he's seen Jason Isaacs (Jackson Brodie) in a toga is in his dreams! My overactive imagination must have conjured up the aforementioned image out of absolutely nowhere! Apologies all around today, then!

  31. Obviously what you need is an extra long lead. Then you can let Meg out to have a pee while you stay safely and decently in the cottage monitoring her movements....

    1. My mother used to do that with her own dog

  32. In the early morning I sometimes see a lady walking her dog in the street - she wears a respectable long black coat - but the pyjama trousers sometimes hang loose around her ankles - offending only Victorians, who, as I read, even knitted covers for table-legs, because even the word 'leg' was undelicate :-)

    1. Of course one sees only a tiny bit of those trousers - my sentence seems a bit ambiguous.

      Delete
  33. The Victorians did indeed prefer the word "limb" to the word "leg", but it's a myth that they knitted covers for table legs. They weren't totally bonkers....

  37. Wouldn't be surprised to see them back tomorrow night.

  38. Most of my neighbours have long since gotten used to seeing in my wellies, pyjamas and jacket taking my dogs into the field for a run first thing in the morning. They don't bat an eyelid anymore but we recently got some new neighbours who looked at me as if I had two heads as I ambled out of my front door this morning in my PJ's, with 3 dogs raring to go and a cup of tea and some toast to take into the field for my breakfast lol :-)

  43. Exposing the local ladies to a bit of... culture, eh? (Maybe they were too busy talking to notice.)

    How wonderful to watch ducklings hatch. I hope you share a picture of them. That would be just ducky.

  44. Goolies...oh how I love how you talk!

  45. I expect nothing less from you John than full exposure :D

    Spring is springing in Wales...hey hey!!
