Its the well dressing season again. So mistress drags us all off each evening to see ANOTHER well. I suppose they are quite pretty if you are a human but if you are a dog then they are dead boring. Sunday was off to Ashford in Water (a few mins from our cottages (click here)) and then on to Over Haddon. At the Over Haddon well we all had to look interested as mistress had done some of the petling (she seemed to have done quite a good job). She disappeared down to the village for a few hours on Wednesday to help with the preparation of the ‘dressing’ and did quite a lot of ‘petling’. We all wondered where she had disappeared to. Yesterday evening we were dragged off to Tideswell and Litton to see their wells. At least we get a bit of a walk. Even if it is on our leads. Litton was quite a nice village. Strangely we had only ever been there in the dark, so mistress was very impressed with the village green and village houses etc.
We even stopped for dinner at the local pub. Well when I say we, I mean master and mistress had dinner and we had to sit and watch.
We have had a few cow free weeks recently which has meant I could get out and explore our front field again. But unfortunately all good things come to an end and they are back again. For a few days we had the youngsters which was quite fun as they are more nosey than the older ones. This means I could poke fun at them, through the fence, a lot easier. Anyway they have gone and we are left with the BIG older ones.
