I was driven out of my bed at stupid o’clock again by the cacophany coming from B’s direction and the coughing fits that have returned with a vengeance. God, I thought all that was behind me!!
I’d love to say that I’ve made good use of my time since I got up but nah…. I’ve been facebooking and net surfing. I found this article that made me laugh, it’s about a little Christmas mouse that sings, ‘Jingle Bells’ – or not. You decide.
Dog walking was fun yesterday, I met up with my sister and niece with one of their dogs Rio, an Alaskan Malamute and went for a nice long walk around the nature trail. This dog here isn’t Rio, it’s just a looky likey.

The dogs ran about 15 miles each as they went nuts chasing each other round and generally behaving like a couple of giddy kids.
At one point they jumped over a brook, raced up the hillside and ran full tilt into a wire fence that they hadn’t seen, first Twitchy got bowled over and then about three seconds later, Rio did exactly the same. They both scrambled to their feet and did that looking around thing that humans do when they fall to make sure no one had seen them do it. Unfortunately for them me, Steph and Sam were doubled over laughing. The poor dogs stood there dazed for a minute, looked at each other as if to say, ‘what the HELL was THAT?’ and then Twitchy staggered back to me and wouldn’t leave my side again for the rest of the walk. Poor thing, it scared her half to death.
