 We think Lynne wrote the poem? A great wordsmith, like her on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/lynne.rawlings.75

Hi Jenny, John Jo and of course my beautiful friend Jess,We had a super holiday,
With all of you, you know,
In fact it was so lovely,

That we didn’t want to go!
The scrambled eggs were super,
They really did impress,
As did the tasty pancakes,
But not as much as Jess!She is your secret weapon,
Who worked her charms on me,
And for her licks and cuddles,
I’m as grateful as can be.
I’m missing her already,
But hopefully one day,
Us girls will all return again,
For yet another stay!Watch the post and take care,Lots of love,
Jenny, Anne and Lynne. xxxx

Just had to listen to Jenny’s latest idea. She’s going to form a village Book Club. They’ll  read only one book this year because the review process will take so long. The first book is called Fifty Shades of Gray. Next year they’ll move on to the trilogy of Noddy and Big Ears.

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.

Well shake my paw. What a turnip, I mean turn-up. First Steven Hester now Fred the Shred. Seems everybody’s got to work harder and get less. I’m going to have to pad carefully this year I think, otherwise I won’t get my boneUS  or any other rewards for that matter, and if anyone deserves them –  I do. I’ve made this place successful. I took over from the previous owner’s dogs. Useless they were. Overweight for a start – obviously been indulging themselves too much. Flipping Retrievers to boot – so too much hunting, fishing, and shooting and eating out with the jet set Red Setters. They didn’t lift a paw to get rid of the moles, squirrels and rabbits around here. Asleep on the job most of the time and, when not sleeping, just growling expecting others to mop up after them.  And they didn’t have my communication skills either. Just go and ask them what a blog is? Ha!

It’s all go here again. Got the plumbers in – re-vamping yet another ensuite. What do these humans do in them? Best not to ask sometimes.

It’ll look smart when it’s finished. I’m supervising to make sure it gets finished on time. It’s the Ross family suite and we’ve got a family staying  in it next week.

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!
