Woke at 6.45am after a disturbed nights sleep.
Walk to the beach but not on the beach long this morning as there was a man with a very large black dog which was not on a lead and came straight for me and Toby, the large dog launched at Toby who growled but shot behind my legs, which is unusual for Toby, the black dog stood looking at both of us and it’s hair was raised on its back, which I did not think was a good sign and was now a little nervous, I asked the man as he got nearer why no lead he said ” it’s friendly “. Could have fooled me! When the man came closer he looked like he had dried blood around his mouth, and looked unwashed. I started to walk away with Toby, but the dog kept following, I asked “can you please put your dog on a lead” the man just laughed and said she chased a few runners yesterday”
In the distance I could see another lady coming down the steps to the beach with her dog, that was it the black dog was off, the lady shouted ” get this dog on a lead” so the man not in any hurry headed over, my time to leave quickly. I could hear growling and snarling and the lady raising her voice again. The next thing a couple of joggers, the black dog spotted, you can guess another problem more raised voices.
Back home, to a more relaxed atmosphere 😊 I bake a cake, Saturday is baking day!
The weather is gorgeous again so I do a spot of ironing outside in the sun, relax for a while, then start on cleaning some outdoor furniture, greased and wrap up for the winter, as the weather is going to be changing.
I have also been doing the winter hanging baskets and planters
We do still have a bit of life in the summer pots, but they are slowly starting to die back now
Making the most of this glorious weather today, love being outside in the garden
Sunday 22nd September 2019
Woke at 6.20am only because the dogs where crying at the bedroom door.
6.40am. The rain came down the thunder crashed and the lightning brightened the sky, what a change in weather in less than 24 hours.
9am We did eventually get a break in the weather so took the opportunity and went to the beach with the dogs.
Back home breakfast and sort out collection of family for Henry’s Christening at 1pm over in Burnley. Quick photo before we leave
We get ready and set off just after 11am which gives us plenty of time for picking daughter up and grandsons. We set off down the motorway heading towards Brierfield, we have not drove through Brierfield for over 2 years, since we moved away to The Fylde Coast
Pick daughter up and grandsons and we are off, we arrive at the church with time to spare, but youngest grandson takes poorly so they had to get a taxi home ☹️
The church is very busy for little Henry Christening, he is a very popular little boy.
