Here are my two bed buddies from last night. Surprisingly we all slept very well, not a murmur came from either of them and I had an undisturbed good nights sleep.
After an early morning walk, I took Rocky back to his garden while me and Henry went to the car boot sale. I went to look for the man I bought the tent off last week, he said he would bring a shopping trolley. There was more sellers there this week, the hot weather has brought them out. The man wasn't there though, I was a bit disappointed because I thought I was going to bring a trolley home. Oh well, keep looking. Someone suggested Freegle, but you have to sign up to be a member before you can browse the list if items, and I don't want to. I looked at Freecycle but there are mainly wants on there, not much is being offered.
I am trying to get Henry to walk properly on the lead, he has had far too much freedom and thinks he is in charge. He pulls all the time to go in the direction he wants to go. So I kept him close to me on a short lead at the car boot, he didn't like it much. He is what you might say at the 'stroppy teenager' stage.
I needed some fruit juice so I called in the cash and carry on the way back, as I was passing. Last time I got three of these cartons for £1 to try them, because the label is one I haven't seen before. It tastes fine, and can be diluted to make even more drinks, so this time I got 12 for £4.00. Should keep me going for a few weeks. It's out of date by one month, but it doesn't matter, it's cheap enough.
Henry got excited when we pulled into the car park next to the big pond. It's more like a lake actually, it has a path all the way round and dogs are allowed to go in the water. The police take their dogs there for training. I felt a bit sorry for him after dragging him round the car boot, he felt a bit sorry for himself as well, but soon cheered up when he got out the car and made a dash for the waters edge.
Another hot day, I had to retreat indoors for a while to cool down. Outside it was like being in an oven, not that I ever have been, but I felt as if I was being roasted alive. Still not finished the garden makeover, although I was able to get on with it a bit when the sun went round the front of the house at about 5pm. I've got to lift three paving slabs which have a gap underneath them as they are raised on one end with a piece of timber. I am hoping there isn't any frogs or toads underneath. I have already disturbed a frog and had to relocate it to another part of the garden. Plenty to do romorrow, Toodle pip
