Four generations

A small boy joining three generations of formidable women!

Timmy meets the allotment

Today was Timmy's first trip to the allotment. Nigel brought him down after I had spent an hour or so clearing weeds (where had they all come from?!) and planting courgettes. He seemed to like it there.

Next weekend I am taking advantage of the 'special offer' that Nigel gave me as my wedding anniversary present - I have compost bins in urgent need of renovation and replacement with my new compost bin that was one of my birthday presents.

Yesterday Timmy had his first trip to Shingle Street - it met with his approval. We also discovered that he is definitely a water dog after he launched himself into the stinky mud of one of the lagoons there. We had to keep the car windows open on the way home because the smell was so bad!
He wasn't so sure about the sea though. I suspect that he may not have been to the seaside before.
Here are Timmy and Nigel before the entry to the mud.

Excuses for not blogging for ages!

First Alfie came to stay... (and this is the only time he cried whilst he was here) and then

we got a new dog! This is Timmy, an eight year old Bedlington Terrier X. As you can see, he has made himself at home very quickly. We are getting to know him and he is a really lovely boy who loves his walks and his food.
I have done loads at the allotment. I am going to take Timmy for his first visit later today so will post a vegetable update after that.
