Coast To Coast

Red pin Broadstairs/ blue pin Trelawnyd

After most of the day on the road
We had a tea of crushed sprouts and ham
Without unpacking the luggage
The dogs have reunited and as one are galloping around the cottage one minute then
Climbing on Chris who is resting weakly on the couch under his laura Ashley throw the other
I have enjoyed our time in Kent
We even got out together on our own...which is a rarity 
So our New Years resolution is to have more nights out Together!
Fat chance tonight though
As Albert has just hurtled through the cat flap with a wide grin on his chops to be reunited with
best buddy Winnie!

It's like the bloody finale of Lassie Come Home
Not a dry eye in the house

  2. "It's like the bloody finale of Lassie Come Home" ... except perhaps for the tea and sprouts... and the use of the word "bloody."

  24. 'Albert heart Winnie'. By no means the first case of inter-species infatuation. It happens all the time in Disney.

  26. Good to have you back where you belong! Love the description of the reunion with the family. I hurry home after an afternoon away at Oxfam to see my dog again, though I don't think he is as glad to see me as I am to see him! ( He hasn't been alone) Happy New Year to you and the dapper Chris. xx
