A lovely blue sky!

Today I spent a lovely morning on the beach with Mummy!
We had the whole beach to ourselves!
I ran along the beach, dug holes in the sand and went into the sea.

We have had a great day, now I am tired so I am going to have a rest

Posted by Picasa

I took a walk down by the sea
And I listened to her strength
And I saw how tall I was
Realized how small I was
And I wonder...
Why the world should care for me?
I looked up into the swirling sky
Saw the clouds go rushing by
Realized how slow I was
And I saw how low I was
And I wondered....
Why the sun should shine for me?

Time to put your coat on!

Walking up the lane with mummy I spotted these chaps....
says it all really!
The sky looked very cold!

Hope mummy doesn't get any ideas of getting me something like that?

Do you think she will?


Well lets hope she sees more sense. I blame that ear ache of hers!

For more skywatching go here, and keep warm!

CC's me!

Me, after ANOTHER walk alongside Mummy's New Bike!

Mummy did some driving in the car the other day to see how far the lanes are which we go for walks on.

Handale is .6 miles to just past the duckpond.
Parkhouse is .7 miles from the road turning.

So we both think we prefer parkhouse right now.
Yesterday mummy got her bike out and we went to parkhouse from road end = .7miles.
Then we did it again = just over 1.4 mile.
Then we did it all again = 1.4 mile...
so in total yesterday morning we did just under 3 miles.

I had a good sleep after it all, whilst mummy and daddy were out on the motorbike.

When they returned I couldn't believe it when mummy put her cycle helmet on!

We did exactly the same as we had done in the morning.
So yesterday I jogged, trotted and ran for just over 6 miles.

I can tell you I was very tired.

Guess What?

Mummy has got one of these!
It was advertised in the Ad paper.....£65.
Daddy came home from work and took mummy to see it.
It had hardly been used.
Daddy said £50 and the seller agreed.

Last night daddy pumped up the tyres and mummy took it up Handale Lane (where the horses are)

Today mummy took me up Handale lane.....I was excellent mummy said.
I trotted next to the bike, running to keep up when mummy went fast.

Tonight, when I returned home from the workshop with Daddy we went out again.
Mummy said I was FANTASTIC!
We went up another lane to parkhouse Farm then back again.

Boy am I tired!

I will sleep well tonight.

Mummy said we are going out again tomorrow!

ABC Wednesday....E

E is for.....ENERGY!

Sniffing for disgusting fish!

To race up the beach!

To jump the walls!

To run in the sea!

I have so much energy!

A few weeks ago mummy got some floatable dog toys from Freecycle but we haven't had the weather to try them out at the beach! Today I can see the sunshine so, armed with my new rubber balls we are going to head for the beach!

I am sooooooooooooooo excited.
I have been having lots of walks round the village which I know mummy has shared with you but the weather has meant the walks are short.......and I like longer spells out to burn off my energy!

Happy ABC Wednesday!

And coming in at the last minute....

Mummy has been taking me ALL OVER lately as she is doing some sort of photo thingy on our village.
We have been out today and she has taken lots of photos.
The sky has been really lovely!
I am hoping we go to the beach soon, but don't worry about me, boy the walks!
Still! I'll sleep tonight.

Friday soon!

Grey Skies!

Mummy and I have had SOME fun this week, but the weather is really horrible.
The other day we went up Church House Lane to the church yard!
Can you see the sky getting ready to throw the rain down on us?
We JUST got home in time!

Still, things can only get better!
Happy Friday Everybody!

Grey skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.
Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya' decide to smile!
Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that "full of doubt" look,
Slap on a happy grin!
And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face
And if you're feeling cross and bitterish
Don't sit and whine
Think of banana split and licorice
And you'll feel fine
I knew a girl so glooming
She'd never laugh or sing
She wouldn't listen to me
Now she's a mean old thing
So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So, put on a happy face

I am exhausted!

Yesterday I was down on the beach for a full hour..................
home for a sleep?
Well that's what I was thinking.......
instead mummy took me up Handale again, but this time we went beyond the duck pond!
All the time mummy was throwing my ball!

No sooner did I fetch it for her, she threw it again!

We were out for a whole hour!

So today a little nap!

X is for.....

X is for xxxx kisses for mummy! name was first on mummy's birthday card!
Daddy had smuggled it under the motorbike seat!
Mummy had done all the packing so he had to keep it secret!

We gave daddy the card to give to mummy!
Daddy bought her a special badge which she is wearing all of the time!

It is debatable which letter represents which act. The less common interpretation assumes that X represents the four lips of a kiss and O the four arms of a hug. For example, the Oxford English Dictionary states that X is "used to represent a kiss, esp. in the subscription to a letter."[1] A more common interpretation assumes X as the crossed arms of a hug and O as the puckered lips of a kiss. Also, the order is normally spoken "Hugs and Kisses" which would correspond to the order that the X's and O's are written. Additionally, there is a more simple interpretation, based on the pronunciation of the letters X (sounds like 'kiss') and O (sounds like 'hold', as in 'I hold you').

The use of XOXO goes back to the use of an X or cross, which was considered as good as a sworn oath in times before most people could write and therefore used the X in the same way a signature is used today — a mark of one's word. An X at the end of a letter or document was often kissed as a seal of honesty, in much the same way one would kiss a Bible or kiss the fingers after making the sign of the Christian cross. Thus the X came to represent a kiss in modern times.

The "X" was also the ancient Paleo Hebrew letter Tav, and was a symbol of the Seal of Hashem (God) and it represented truth, completeness, and perfection.

The origins of the O as a hug are not generally known, although it is speculated that it may represent the arms wrapped around someone being hugged.


Well there you go, we learn something new every day!

Good to be back!

It is great to have mummy and daddy back.
They came to collect me yesterday and I was really pleased to see them.
Auntie Jane told them I had been a good girl.

This morning mummy took me down to the beach.
We played for a whole hour.
Mummy threw the ball and I ran and ran.

The cliffs are on the coast, further up is Whitby, then Scarborough, Filey and Flamborough Head

This is the North Sea where the ferry travelled over to Holland.

At the other side of the beach, further up the Coast is Newcastle, where the ferry left for Ijmuiden.

I am going to have a rest now as I am tired after my morning exercise.
Mummy has lots to do so I will have a sleep.

Sky over Scarborough Castel (The Keep)

I was right!
On Wednesday, after my walk Mummy and daddy took me over the moors towards Scarborough.
I knew where we were!

Mummy and Daddy are coming to collect me on Monday, so I will be back to tell you what I have been up to!
