Hey everyone, how was your weekend?
I spent mine camping! Here is me outside our tent.
I wasn’t too impressed with having to stay on a tether line all weekend and frequently got tangled up. But apparently I’m wasn’t trusted to roam freely with so many people cooking sausages around us. I was hugely insulted if I’m honest, as if I was going to steal them! So I preferred spending time in the tent with my new squirrel toy.
It was also crazy hot and I spend alot of time covered in a wet towel trying to keep cool.
My wasp hunting skills were needed loads because silly mummy had a yellow cup and was drinking fizzy drinks so as you can imagine, it was a party for the wasps round our tent.
I got to watch some of a falconry display but there was a vulture hopping around and it looked like walking dinner to me, so mummy thought we’d best take a walk at that point.
She’s such a meanie!
The camping weekend was actually a geocaching event and although I don’t really cache, having come home I’ve now set up my own account and I’m trackable. So if anyone would like to ‘track’ me, let me know and I will pass you the details.
The campsite wasn’t too far from home and was a good trial run for our next trip when we go to Wales in a few weeks.
Did you go camping this weekend?
Today is my daddy’s birthday so I wanted to wish him a very happy birthday. Later we are going to have some birthday snuggles. But in the meantime here we are chilling on the sofa together:-)
Happy birthday daddy! Sending you loads of love and licks, from your little girl xxxx
Last week after my WW post a lot of you wondered if I hadn’t been around because I was lost in the long grass. I wasn’t lost, but I have been stalking about a lot as it’s rabbit season and I’m on the hunt!
I’m not sure if you’ll be able to see them, but there were loads about!
I’ve been having so much fun chasing them! Bunnies of Essex watch out, I’m after you. Sorry Speedy but they live in the park so the way I see it, they’re fair game!
Do you like chasing rabbits?
Yesterday it hit 36°C in the UK – craziness!
Mummy has been taking me to the river in the mornings so I can have a cooling swim, and through the day I have plenty of water and fresh air. I’m pretty good at finding cool places to sleep so funnily enough I think mummy and daddy are suffering more than I am!
At the height of the heat I made myself comfortable in front of the fan.
The weather reports are saying we may get thunderstorms today, so I’m hoping that will cool the air. If not, then it’s more frozen treats and swims for me. Can’t complain!
There are lots of warnings across social media about being careful when walking on the pavement in the heat, about making sure to avoid walking during the hottest parts of the day, and most of all not to leave us in stationary cars. So please be vigilant.
Keep cool everyone. I’m heading back for a nap :-)
At the weekends we often walk over Pish Park where fearsome cows graze!
As you will see from the following video I took my life in my paws by walking passed them. Seriously it was very harrowing and I’m amazed I survived. If you watch to the end you will see my relief.
Do you like cows?
My park has been awarded some funding for a major restoration. Needless to say it currently looks like a complete mess. Once it’s finished it should be fab, with a new coffee shop, new pathways, and a new-look bandstand among other things.
But while that’s happening, my park is covered in scaffolding, and there is all kinds of craziness going on. Like this:
Well anyway, yesterday I decided to inspect the works being done and somehow got stuck behind this barrier. Kinda looks like I’m in jail!
After 87 hours mummy finally moved the barrier and let me out. Apparently I could have gone into the bushes and around it, but where’s the fun in that? I like mummy to feel involved in my (mis)adventures :-)
Have you ever been put in jail?
Today I have a fun guest post from http://www.foodpackaginglabels.net/pet-food-labels/ – Enjoy!
Fun Pet Food Labels for Decorating Your Fluffy Friend’s Food Canisters
We consider our pets equal members of our family. Since we are doing many things together, such as going for a walk to the park, watching TV, jogging, sleeping, going to vacations etc., they deserve the best care. When it comes to preparing food, we are making the same effort for theirs as we are for our own meals, since food plays a very important role in maintaining a healthy life. We choose the best foods rich in protein, vitamins and other ingredients that are good for their development, and we even cook for them. After all, food is one of the ways that can make them feel like home.
However, keeping our pets’ food fresh and organized can sometimes be quite complicated. Since their food usually comes in enormously big packaging, we are constantly trying to think of good and handy storage solutions. Placing pet food bags in the kitchen might cause a mess. The lack of some kind of cover or lid on the bag may result in wasting the healthy food ingredients and spilling out food. The best way to prevent this and organize our pet food is to store it in some kind of storage containers or a plastic boxes. Still, we have to mark the container in some way to make it recognizable. We have a fun and handy tip for adapting and decorating the containers. For this mini project we’ll need:
- Fun Pet Food Labels
- Self-Adhesive Paper
Instructions for use:
Simply download the labels, print them out and apply them on the canister you chose to use to store your pet food. They will make the canisters look cute and amusing, so you can place them in the kitchen, in the pantry or anywhere else in the house. You will no longer have half-eaten packets lying around the kitchen, and preparing food for ALL members of the family will be fun and easy.
