So, today saw Mum and Dad's first house guests - my brother, Phil and his wife, Chris. They have a cockerpoo, called Penny, and another dog called Bonnie. With 5 dogs in the house - chaos reigned and Daisy took charge!!
Fortunately the weather had cleared up and so we were able to have coffee in the garden. It had been Phil's birthday a few weeks ago and I gave him a set of Dr Who biscuits - he was really pleased.
After a tour of the house and a walk up to the shop for a paper, it was then time for an alfresco lunch - complete with my home made lean corned beef quiche - mmmmmm! Now I am not saying that Daisy is spoiled - but she always seemed to be on a lap when I took a photo!
After lunch, and as the oldies started to flag, Phil and Chris came back to mine to walk the dogs up at the beach -and this is where my trouble started. As I opened the conservatory doors to let some air in , so a pigeon flew in and wouldn't go out - finally ensconcing himself on top of the radio and refusing to shift! As Phil returned, we followed the advice given last time and each held the end of a sheet to guide the bird out - but it didn't play ball - so I employed a cushion as extra "persuasion"!! We were so pleased to see the bird fly out!!
Tonight, we are all meeting up again for a meal at a local restaurant - the one we went to before that cooks the steak on the hot stone. Tonight I am trying out the tuna steak - mmmm
