Oh, Barney is precious! What a beautiful boy! And a lucky one - kudos to you for giving him a loving, forever home!

I was going to share Molly's great stash of vegan recipes for dogs and other wonderful, informative stuff for happy, healthy pups but I see she's also one of your followers, so I'll let her do it! :-)

Oh bless him, I'm so glad you took him, I'm sure it'll all work out and he'll have a lovely life with you! x

He is beautiful, look at that lovely smiling face. I hope he likes a bath after all that mud! X
Thanks everyone - he's adorable, though has trashed 2 tennis balls already... He needs to lose weight, but seems really fit for a 10 year old! We've got a few days off with him now, which is nice - but the kitties are in hiding upstairs, so we keep popping up & giving them plenty of cuddles too!

Congratulations on your very handsome new family member! What a sweet, adorable boy he is. <3

It makes me so sad that he was abandoned like that. Poor sweetie. He's so very lucky to have such a wonderful new home, though. I know you'll both love him so very much. He looks like a very gentle soul.

If you have any questions or need advice on anything, feel free to email me or contact me through any of our sites. I'll help if I can! :)

Oh, and make sure to keep us updated on how you all get on!
Thank you everyone again & Molly - we'll be taking notes from your blog, especially your yummy recipes!

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.

Travelling On A Budget

We often get shocked at how much folks are willing to pay for vacations. Even if we become billionaires...no don't laugh, you never know...we will no doubt continue to travel simply.  We love camping for starters, so we can't imagine not doing it and then there's a real joy in bargain hunting hotels and holiday accommodation.
We tend to camp if we can do more than 3 nights and the weather's nice. If it's not so good, then we usually look at self-catering accommodation and easily find great places. When we're on the road we tend to find cheap motels for overnight stays and book a few hours before arrival to save money. These can be anything from a motel chain to a more fancy pants country hotel...on our last trip to France we found ourselves staying in the grounds of a vineyard in Burgundy and it was lovely!  A lot of small hotels open up to business travellers out of season and when they still have rooms available, they reduce their prices and that's where…
