Snowdrops…

It was a fantastic sunny day yesterday, if you took away the freezing wind one could almost remember what it was like in the summer….almost haha!

The morning sun streaming through the trees at Cammo Estate…

Walking the woods and beach…

We have been enjoying the pretty mild weather lately. I would say we enjoy ANY weather that is not torrential rain! Thats the only kind we have an issue with πŸ˜‰ It is a very busy time of year just now, lots and lots of walks equals very tired doggies and a very tired me!

Everyone was pretty tuckered out after that, as you can see!

Today at Craiglockhart we met no less than four new puppies! It is puppy season! Such a shame that Craiglockhart is set to be developed on. I actually think it’s a disgrace that this beautiful established woodland (that is supposed to be a nature reserve!!!!) is being sold for a company to build flats on. It’s just not right at all… 😦

It’s freezing!!!

My god the weather hasn’t half turned!! It was freezing this morning, I definitely need gloves now! And so begins the search for waterproof gloves that are not extortionate!

Even though its freezing though the woods still look spectacular.

No honestly Ella, there are no ghosts at the top of the steps…

Back at home and its such a cold night that the dogs have their p.js on. No laughing!! We have nice cosy doggies who are not paying one bit of attention to the fireworks outside.

Still very much getting used to my Dads camera, there are some very funny shots in the bunch today!! Every one was wizzing around so fast the camera couldn’t quite cope haha! I have to say though, it may be poor photography but i like the blurry speedy ones! Some of them are hysterical!

Running free on Corstorphine Hill. Kobi did so well with his recall and had so obviously bonded to the pack that he was ready to be let off leash on his second day. He did brilliantly. I can’t wait for this wee man to meet Winston, I feel a bromance coming on!!
