Jenny has got a new hatch back car. I don’t like it because I’ve got a new carrier and I can’t see a damn thing. Which means I’m not barking in the car any more at the traffic and any wooffies in other cars, there’s no fun in life now. She’s raving about it though, she got it from Pet Planet.

Hi,  Jess Jarvis here –

Enjoying the Olympics? Isn’t Jessica  fab-u-lous. Glad we share a name. Not sure I could cope with the hurdles but I’d love to have a race with her cos I’m pretty fast myself I can tell you. And I know how to BOLT when needed!!!

Andy Murray’s done well too. Warming to him now, especially as he’s a Wooffie  lover.

Jess Ben and Chloe

Lands End here we come

Here’s me saying goodbye to Ben and Chloe this morning.  Thought I was going with them – got my lycra collar on ready! Ben is cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End. (1000 miles) in aid of St. Christopher’s Hospice near Crystal Palace, London. A Friend’s mother was cared for there last year before she died. The hospice needs £8 million a year to survive. Good luck Ben – it was our privelege to meet you and have you and Charlotte stay, and also to meet Chloe this morning as she joins you cycling today . Anyone can support Ben and the hospice via www.virginmoneygiving.com/BenGirling. Go on it’s a really good cause.

The River Wye has been voted the best river  in England and Wales. Brilliant, because we are a 5 mins walk away! It was voted best because –

Easy to access – no restrictions

A great place to relax

Wonderful array and diversity of wildlife

Great for activities and sports – fishing, canoeing, swimming, kayaking

Last but not least

Walking the dog ( I know all about that!)

We had 15 Round Tablers,  from Penkridge 1178, staying last weekend on their way to Ludlow and points north. Here they are gearing up ( ha) for their marathon pedal after a marathon breakfast I can tell you. Nothing but nothing  left on their plates but bacon rinds to which I’m very partial  – thanks guys and gals. But not one of them had a basket on the front of their bikes for a cycling wooffie. Not very friendly was it, anyway bet I could run faster than you could pedal – Yeh! – was that the reason for not inviting me along?!  But really hope you got there and back safe and sound – do let us know!
