a meadow moment

I've been home a few days, and am slowing down to the pace of life, despite having much to catch up with. Quiet walks and sneaking in a moment lying in a buttercup-strewn field have helped me regain my sense of balance after a busy week away. It seems that Walter needed this too!


I had a lovely time, and managed to meet up with Kristina and Tracy at Petersham. The Teahouse was closed for a 'fashion do' so we legged it down to Mrs Moon. Quite simply the most seductive yarn shop I've ever set foot in. A small purchase was made, because I couldn't leave empty handed. Then there was a picnic on the green at Abinger Hammer with Ginny and her girls on a sunny afternoon.

Along with family gatherings and comings and goings, and a trip to the dentist which included the unexpected removal of an impacted wisdom tooth, I'm happy to be home for a little peace and quiet - briefly. It's festival time next week.

After having a toof removed, I wonder if you joined Walter in rolling on the grass too!

In my next life I want to come back as Walter! He looks so joyful! I am glad that you had a nice time away from home but it is nice to come home and reflect isn't it? x

Oh lucky Walter to be able to roll in a meadow!

And thank you so much for the most wonderful day out! I had such a super time.

And so sorry about your tooth. Hope all is well now.

From the angle of your lovely photos, it looks like Walter wasn't the only one having a roll in the grass! Do take some photos of the festival for us next week won't you? I expect I shall feel quite homesick ...

It's been the same here too - lots of lovely things going on - but not enough hours in the day. Enjoy your 'calm down' time Diana - can it really be Golowan time already!

Lovely pictures of Walter as ever - my goodness that boy is photogenic!!

Walter made me S M I L E - he would make a good friend for my little Bella, she loves to do just the same - especially with a ball in her mouth!
We love meadows too.
Thanks both of you!

Diana, your photos never fail to be unique. These are just great shots of Walter! So lovely to meet up with friends and family too. I hope there's now improvement with your tooth. x

Love those pics - one very happy dog. Now then, hate to say this, but viz your comment on mine, there are still two pups (girls) going on that litter... hmmmm....tempted? Really he is the most gorgeous pup and (so far) the best pup we've ever had. Really calm and fun and good. xxx
