Well its bank holiday weekend again, we are off taking the doggies out after breakfast.

We had an eventful day yesterday, we let the cats out for the very first time (never again!). Misty our eldest stayed in the back yard with the doggies, just veturning a bit further would come running back after 5 minutes. Toddy was the same all day but after his tea he thought he would go exploring, after a few hours we were very worried, by 8pm last night we were frantic, not a sign of him anywhere. We had to climb over a wall and go into all these brambles, we found next doors cat and he ended up eating all the cat munchies.

At 1.30am this morning I was woken up by Maisy, she needed to go out, I could hear a cat crying, I ran back in the house and got Paul we both got dressed and went looking, not a sign of him at all. When we got back, our eldest cat Misty starting crying and screaming, think he was missing Toddy and was calling out for him. Paul opened the bathroom window and shouted Toddy and the next minute he was there. I flew down the stairs and ran in the back yard and he just snuggled up against me. They are not going out ever again, we would both be nervous wrecks. Then it was 3am and our adrenaline was at top flow, think it was 5am before I got to sleep, Toddy is non the worse and is now safely snuggled up on the sofa ......awwwwww.....

While we were off on holiday we managed to get the front garden sorted out, we've planted some ferns, a flamingo tree which looks lovely with pink leaves and a silver blue spruce which is destined to be covered in Christmas lights.

We've picked the style and material for the wedding dress this weekend and the lady who is doing this for us seems very nice. We've also picked the colour of the mens waistcoats.

The bridesmaid dresses have been picked, however, Debbies sister doesn't like the colour we've selected so we're having to go back again next weekend to pick another colour . . . Aaaaaarh!!

Hopefully this week will get better!!

We did not make it to London, as all the trains were booked up and they want £110 return each for us to travel and then they could not guarentee a seat!! think the rail system in this country gets

We ended up going back to the coast with the doggies what another fantastic day, I cought the sun again walked all way down to the beech and remembered I had left the sun tan cream in the

Lucy was reluctant to go in the sea again and Paul had to go pick her up and walk across the water with her, she is so funny as Paul was walking with her she was trying to paddle with her front she did not relise she was about 6ft from the was in stitches with laughter watching them

When we got home we have all been relaxing and Zippy has been trying to talk again, he is nearly saying "HELLO" or might even be "EH OH" not sure yet, i just keep singing and chatting to him, we have moved his cage to the other side of the room and I think he is a ickle bit more happier.....

Time to do some jobs in the house tomorrow thats if it aint hot and sticky again.....

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen . . . . it won't do any good though because it's just as hot in every other room! It's very hot and humid today and it's forecast to get even hotter tomorrow with a chance of the record temperature for Britain being broken! Think it's time to move to Iceland

We ended up not going for a walk on Sunday afternoon, it was just too hot and just standing in the sun for a few seconds was painful with us being burnt from Saturday. We missed out on the walk last night for the same reason, hopefully we'll be out tonight when it's cooled down a bit :-) We won't be going anywhere without our factor 30 sun cream for a while

We're both very tired today, it's almost impossible to sleep at night and then just when we manage to get to sleep, Maisy jumps on us (at exactly 5.30am every morning) and starts licking until we get out of bed.

Bye for now from a very hot & sticky Yorkshire.

We made it to Cayton Bay on the Yorkshire coast yesterday, the sun was shining and everyone appeared to be heading for the East coast. We got there about midday, just in time for the hottest sun

The path down to the beach was a bit steep to say the least but it was well worth the climb down, the beach is lovely, nice soft sand, plenty of rock pools and the sea not to far away (you need a camel to get to the sea on some East Cost beaches

We went paddling for the first time in years, Debbie waded across a large pool and Maisy followed and started swimming on this her first proper day out!

She never hesitated about getting in the water, she jumped straight in and have a great time splashing about.

Lucy was having none of it, she's been on the beach before and she's not too keen on getting wet, she just sat on a rock sulking with the three of us at the other side of the pool

Lucy did get across eventually, up to her knees in water . . . very brave. Maybe one day she'll have a go at swimming, until then we'll just have to carry her across the deep bits

We're all shattered today, I think we were both roasted alive yesterday, our shoulders are a very nice shade of red We've been out for an early morning stroll round the park, I think we'll go down to the country park just own the road this afternoon after we've done a bit of shopping for some sun tan lotion and a gallon of after sun!
