A Nuffin Sort of Day!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret back again!

Well, we are pleased to announce that last night there were no Whizz Bangs going off. Mind you, the rain did help!

Holly decided that she would take up her 'Safe' position next to Old Two Legs and she stayed there all evening!

There is the possibility of some bangs tonight but, claws crossed, there will be too much homework for the Little Two Legs to be allowed out!

This morning it was rather cold and very windy, OTL got all wrapped up in his coat with a hood to keep the wind from blowing down his neck!

The Missus said he looked like Obi-Wan Kenobi!

Miss May decided to get into the ferret bag instead of sitting on OTL's arm but when OTL put her down on the beach she decided that it would be a good idea to get a move on and get back to the car as soon as possible!

Too cold to hang about this morning!
We were pleased to get back home and the ferrets had a great time rampaging around the house!

Holly and I spent some time snoozing on the bed until we got called downstairs for a bowl of freshly cooked chicken.

I must say, it did go down well!

Come lunchtime I gave OTL a shove and got him moving 'cos we wanted a walk!

It wasn't as cold but the wind was blowing which lowered the temperature to -2.6 degrees!

OTL says that is called 'Wind Chill' and it showed up on his 'Weather Station'!

There is a place where we could get out of the wind and it is surprising how the temperature goes up when you get out of the wind.
Come on, lets get behind the bushes!
Lucky for us, the rain in the clouds stayed up in the air but we did see some rain falling on Essex!

Just windy and cold!
 The lack of rain while we were out walking still didn't impress Freddy, he still wanted to get back in the ferret bag but OTL insisted he get some exercise 'cos he has to look his best for the Harrietsham Ferret Show at the end of this month.

I'm fit, healthy and good looking, I Don't Need Exercise and anyway, these shells are cold on my paws!!
 His humour didn't improve when they got to the grass path 'cos the wind just whistled over the top and made his tail cold!
Come on, get a move on I can feel the Wind Chill freezing my tail!
 Poor Freddy, he ran so fast that Wendy had to tell him to slow down 'cos she was out of breath!

OTL has been out to see the Accountant so I sat up at the bedroom window watching out for his return.

Not sure what is for dinner tonight but we did see TM wandering about with a pack of Gammon Steaks, so, with a bit of luck, Holly and I will get some nibbles later!

See you tomorrow!

  1. Evening little maties. Well it's been a really cold day here today, I didn't even want to go in the garden, my mum pushed me out but I stayed hanging around the door waiting to get back in, in the warm. I've only gone out when I really needed to go. I feel quite sorry for those little furball ferrets, they don't get nice knitted coats to keep the chill off them. Freddy is right, he is handsome and I don't reckon you can improve on perfection like wot he looks. Glad to hear that you and Holly chops got some nice chicken, I should think so as well after poor Holly was so traumatised with all them whizz bangs, I hope there aren't any more now. My mum has been working this morning and this evening so I've been able to snuggle and snooze. Hope the weather is a bit warmer tomorrow for all of us. Have a lovely evening and enjoy your muggings. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxxx

  2. Gammon Steaks that sounds good, I hope you got your far share but then you did have chicken this morning, a great surprise and very welcomed I sure. Your Freddy Boy is going to need some insulated shoes for beach walking, they will not only keep the cold out but also the wet but then I am full of good ideas and you are still waiting for that I-paws and that big expensive bag that dries you and gets rid of the mud. Christmas is coming so maybe and now Holly can't have carrots she will need something as an alternative! You are right about the cold and wind chill, I looked out of the window and it looked cold and the leaves were blowing so I thought "there will be a wind chill somewhere there". Tomorrow I am venturing out so if you can turn up the heat and turn down the wind I shall be very pleased with you. xxxxxx
