The Return of Grumbly Tum!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles have returned again!

What a Yuk day it's been!

It started off last night, we all went to bed as normal and Holly and I went for our normal wee and a woof in the garden.

Old Two Legs 'Aurora Alert' went off  but he saw nothing and went back to bed. Then I woke up, not feeling too good, did a quick 'Wake Up OTL! I NEEEEED To Go Out NOW! and off we went, I headed for the back of the garden and OTL looked into the sky just in case he could see the aurora. No chance, as normal, next door had most of their lights on which blocks out the night sky in our garden, great for spotting foxes and hedgehogs but no good for stars and stuff like that!

OTL says it must cost them a fortune to keep all the lights on like that and it's a good job he doesn't have to pay their bill!

Well, after a while I came back in and we went through the 'Kit Inspection' and  'Butt Washing Ceremony' and at three thirty we headed back to bed for a cuddle and some more sleep.

That was until The Missus starts bouncing about saying that she can't get to sleep and it's our fault!

If she didn't spend all the time bouncing around then she would go back to sleep!

By the time we were supposed to get up we could hear the rain beating against the windows and the wind blowing as well, I stuck my head back under the duvet and went back to sleep!

When it got time to go out for a walk I had decided I really didn't want to go and Holly and the ferrets would have to go on their own, then I crawled under TM's fleece and went back to sleep with my tummy doing some really strange rumblings!

Down on the beach the waves had little white crests on them, so you know it is going to be windy.

The rain had stopped to just a few spots that landed like bullets on Holly's nose!

Wet & Windy!
 Both of the ferrets said that they weren't hanging about this morning and as soon as they had worked out which way was North, they headed back to the car!

No Dear, That Is EAST!
 Holly said that it was OK but charging along the beach just wasn't the same without me being there, still, she got her jog along the beach and then there was a chat with Max & Oscar who had their big coats on!

It's not the same without Old Bossy Paws!
They also met up with Barney and his Missus. OTL had spotted another terrier type heading their way so picked up the ferrets, just to be on the safe side.

Barney's Missus went Oooo and Ahhhh at the ferrets and shoved a big leather gloved hand towards Mr Brambles head. Hey Up! He thought, a Monster, and took a snap at the Black Leather Monster waving about in front of his nose. He missed but it was a warning to her for next time!

It wasn't long before they were back in the car and heading home.

Late morning we finally got some chicken, more for lunch than breakfast, but I just didn't fancy it. So OTL picked it up to stop Holly from eating it!

I went back to bed, under OTL's desk and slept the rest of the morning away!

At lunch time I still wasn't back to normal so OTL says that he will delay the walk until two thirty just to see if I felt better. Now, wasn't that kind? Of course, it had nothing to do with the rain pouring down and he could see a 'Window' at about  three fifteen!

Come the time, I felt a bit better and we decided that some fresh air would do me good as well, so, off we went.

When we got there the rain had just stopped, clever OTL, and Holly and I went off looking for rabbits.

Rabbit Chase!
It is amazing how a good chase after a rabbit or two can get you feeling better! Holly and I had a good run about and did some 'Ferreting About' in the bushes as well. In no time I was feeling on top of the world!

In fact, when I got back home I told TM that I wanted my lunch and enjoyed a good bowl full of chicken. It was cold but I enjoyed it all the same. Mind you, a hot juicy chicken with a bit of sauce drizzled on the top would have gone down a treat but I'll let her off this time!

The rest of the day has been passed snoozing under OTL's desk while he prints up those pictures of the churches, I think he is going to frame them and see if he can flog them at the forthcoming Church Fete in a month or two.

That should be fun, OTL flogging pictures and TM selling cards, a contest, and it's all for charity!

See you tomorrow and claws crossed for some more sun!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your grumbly tum, wasn't OTL good to look after you so well though. You must have felt really poorly to miss your morning walk. Archie sends you lots of licks and hopes that you're completely over it now. Loved the pictures from today. I hear Miss Snowflake is giving Mr B some orders. Good to hear you had your chicken. I bet Barney, Max and Oscar missed you. Hope you get a good sleep tonight without interruption, I expect OTL would be glad of it too. I'm sure OTL and TM will have a good competition, they both do lovely work. Have a good evening and hopefully get a lie in tomorrow. :) xxxx

  2. Poor Daisy, sorry that your tum has been grumbly, hope it feels completely better soon. Has good that you felt well enough to eat your glorious chicken even if it was late. Lots of sleeps today and the sound of the printer must have helped to lull you to dreaming of rabbits and running on the beach. Hope you all get a good sleep tonight then in the morning you will all be off to the beach to search for those sniffs. Lovely pictures today and will be watching out for the OTL/TM contest. xxxx
