Time for another Sunday Sevens – the brainchild of the wonderful Nat at Thread and Bobbins, devised for bloggers to share seven photos of their personal week.
This week has been another cold, damp week when the temperature has remained in the low teens.
Although I’d love to have a bit of real summer – as opposed to real British summer – I have to confess to being a little pleased about the miserable weather. Hicks is struggling the minute it warms up or the sun comes, but this week – even though he’s not been up to long walks for a while – the cooler weather has allowed him to be his little scallywag self: disappearing off to chew a deer bone hidden in the undergrowth, making us think we’d lost him on Tuesday; abandoning us to play with another team at the pub quiz on Wednesday; and on Thursday trying to get through a friends garden fence at any cost.
On Friday, he was rather lethargic, but despite only having a 200 yard walk, he still managed to get stuck on top of a Devon bank.
Late on Friday afternoon he went rather more down hill, so I took him to the vet. She put him on antibiotics and, after a very quiet Saturday, he chased out after the rabbits when I let him out this morning. His tummy is quite distended though, so we still need to work out what’s going on there.
This Saturday was the day of our village music festival.
I helped out on the gate for a couple of hours then watched a couple of bands. However, still worried about Hicks, we headed home early to see that he was okay and to keep him company.
The rest of the week was very mundane apart from Friday when I found another wonderful stockist for The Dartmoor Yarn Company. I’m delighted to say, our kits and yarn are now also available at Cosy Corner Crafts at South Brent. Cosy Corner Crafts is a gorgeous shop full of wonderful fabric and yarn and wonderful of craft supplies, in the delightful village of South Brent, just 15 mins away from Totnes. Sorry no photo, there were two cars parked right outside when I was there.
And in other good news, Lovely Littlest’s knitting is still happening and the scarf is still growing 🙂
Hope you’ve had a good week!
