There must be a bit for me

There must be a bit for me

It has been lovely at our Bolehill Cottages (click here). For the last few weeks Master has been working over in Buxton so has been taking idiot brother with him. Why? I have no idea as I am sure he just gets in the way all the time. Idiot brother claims that he is an integral part of the ‘Project Management team’ and is constantly helping to sort things out and making suggestions. I personally think he is an idiot and he will be getting in the way all the time. For instance he came back covered in Magnolia paint the other evening. He claims he was helping with touching up some bits of wall master had missed. I don’t think master saw it that way.

Did someone mention FOOD.

Anyway while idiot brother has been away I have been able to check out my mats, find new little snoozing corners and get in some serious snoozing time without the idiot waking me up barking at something. I do get the odd prod from mistress to see if I want to go out but have learned that if I keep my eyes closed she leaves me alone. Why would I want to go out – it might be cold or even wet out there. Mistress did take me over to see them both one day and trust me it was boring. No proper mats to sleep on, no food, and constant banging and clattering. How is a dog suppose to get some rest with that noise going on. There was one interesting moment when lunch time came around and they all sat down for sandwiches. I thought for a fleeting moment someone might have brought something for me. But oh no. I just had to sit there while everyone else got fed. No I think I will stay at home and leave idiot brother to his ‘Project Management’.

A walk from Monyash – Blue

Me

Me at yet another stile

As mistress’s knee has been playing up the last few weeks we haven’t had much of chance to go for walks. I keep asking master to take us but unless mistress organises it and makes him go he is just stuck in front of his computer. I have all sorts of problems getting him off it so I can do my blog. Master has even started taking us out for our morning constitution. What a pain. Mistress is great as she just lets us run around and enjoy ourselves. With Master it is “Blue this way”, “No Blue”, “Blue Sit”, “Blue Stay”. He seems to have a thing about ‘training’ at the moment. Come on it’s early in the morning lets save that for later.

It was a very big Ice-cream

It was a very big Ice-cream

Well Sunday was such a nice day at Bolehill Cottages that mistress gritted her teeth and decided we should go for a short walk. Well of course we didn’t realise it was a short walk, until we got back to Monyash after only a few hours. I suppose we should have noticed  there was no frantic packing of sandwiches. The other problem we had, was that as we haven’t done this walk for some time, so there was a lot of stopping to admire the view. At least we were off our leads for most of the time, so could go off and explore.

When we got back to Monyash mistress of course  had to stop at the Old Smithy for an Ice-cream. Nothing for us mind you. It was a very big ice-cream so mistress did let master have a few licks.

Although it was a  short walk it was a very pleasant change and I think mistress’s leg coped.

Where has she got to?
