Douglas Diary Summer Holidays 2018
Back at King’s Bromley – The weekend
I do apologise to my reader for the temporary format change (3 days) and delay with my diary. My kennel has not sunk and we are all fine. The truth is my bearded one is running out of megabytes on his device (he helps me, as he keeps mentioning, I’m a paw typist) and it will be another few days before he gets a new allowance! He must therefore use public WiFi to continue posting my entries – this might mean a visit to a pub he mutters or something not always available. As we are not moving a brief summary of this weekend follows:
Tamworth to King’s Bromley was our last journey for a while. Ahead of us were just the two Gascott locks plus the three locks approaching our home Marina at Fradley. The weather had taken a bit of a down turn. My bearded one who does not like driving my long kennel in the rain, bravely donned his condom suit and lashed himself to the tiller. All to no avail, the weather remained calm and dry and we enjoyed the journey, with even sunny out breaks gliding into our own home berth at King’s Bromley in time for tea. This appeared to be a G&T .
It was lovely to wake up in my familiar hunting ground at King’s Bromley. I chased three squirrels this morning. Damn nearly caught one.Today’s it is the usual end of cruise jobs for them and they were both very busy, doing things like washing cleaning and shopping, I went into a lot of shops and we spent quite a time in my short kennel too. I did a lot of sleeping. (My picture today) We visited long haired’s daughter and family in Nuneaton for supper at The Royal Redgate Country Pub, they said it was very good, I of course was under the table and got nothing but a drink of water.
It was a bright sunny morning as I walked my bearded one around The Marina. The inside of my kennel resembles a laundry, my long haired one is very busy washing and ironing and my bearded one has got the paints out, he is on the roof to finish some work he had started a week or so ago. The sky has suddenly gone quite grey. It is rather windy and as the paint was nearly dry on my roof trim (signal red) it started to rain. My bearded one had to stop work and have a little siesta.
Tonight, later this afternoon, we are going to take my short kennel to go and visit with my bearded one’s eldest son James who lives at Castle Donington, this is only about half an hour away in my short kennel.
My diary will resume in its usual daily format when we start cruising again. I thought you would like a picture of me this is how I sometimes relax.
