and the back garden this morning! icy and still covered in snow up on the grass and borders!
And this weekend we'd planned a small trip away travelling on Saturday to return on Sunday ! Staying in a lovely B&B which had an animal sanctuary attached ! But after reading and seeing the weather forecast for our area and the areas we were to travel to and through ,we altered our plans.
When we left early Saturday morning it was snowing but not settling on the roads thank goodness has it was a long journey ahead. After about two and a half hours the snow stopped and it was just a very grey day which did improve but remained bitterly cold.
Messaging home we were told it was still snowing! But when we crossed the Severn bridge into Wales the skies were bright but cloudy.
View from car window, no time to dilly dally! So we made our destination four hours and twenty minutes from home. Stayed a while and then headed back to beat any incoming bad weather that was predicted. A long and very tiring journey but worth the effort.
Because the area we were going into was due to get a heavy snow fall Saturday night to Sunday morning!
Because the bear that Percy was hunting, was found and caught in Wales. Here's his photo...
Asleep in Percy's cage ! Looks like a large beast to me!! After a nights rest the 'bear' is starting to settle in, feeling his way about and finding his large feet!
So please allow me to introduce Paul's new Golden Retriever puppy. His name is Casper, named from our first retriever of Cassie and our last Jasper. He does have a Kennel club name but not one I'm keen on or wish to share on social media for safety's sake. He is darker than he appears in the photos which is great because Paul wanted a dark one.
So 2018 appears to be the year of Babies and Puppies in the household and we couldn't be happier !
Of course we'd taken down the fence panels between us and our neighbour and left it open cause we didn't have a dog! So what did we do ... buy one! So last weekend we got these new fence panels in !
On the doll front, I had a couple of outfits arrive which I'll be sharing over the coming week. The log cabin is set to arrive tomorrow, Monday! and because we've gone off on a tangent and bought Casper this weekend nothing's been done towards that ,but then due to the bad weather nothing would have happened anyway!
So I'll be trying to fill the blog with some Sasha photos and stories plus also keeping you up to date each Sunday with events in the garden. It's just as well I'm starting to feel better than I have all winter! Now if we could just have some proper Spring weather things would be perfect!!
Wishing you all a lovely health fun filled week ahead
