Sunday 14th Feb: Driving For Miss Daisy!

After such an energetic day as yesterday, the Teens enjoyed a lie in...and so did we!
We had our usual slow start followed by the amazing Hilton breakfast.
This was no weekend for calorie counting!
Breakfast is always followed by a swim...we always ensure the Hilton's we book have pools, they are such fun for the Teens.
When we went to pack the car...look what I found waiting for me on my seat!
Any of  you remember the Milk Tray Ads?
Hubby has more than once taken on the role of the man who did all sorts just to deliver a box "all because the lady loves Milk Tray!"
What an old romantic he is....well I presume they are from Valentines card never has a name on it...but then neither does his!
What a couple of old romantics we are!
Around 3pm it was time to say goodbye to the East Midlands and start the next stage of our journey to the East coast....Lincolnshire.
By the time we got there the sun was almost setting.
And this little lady was the reason for our epic weekend drive!
Meet Daisy...the newest member of the family!
It is unlikely we will own a puppy in the immediate future ( never say never!) so have to make the most of other members of the family  having one!
She really is the sweetest thing (on a par to her "cousin" Penny of course!) and poor Millie, big "sis" has rather a lot to contend with!
Daisy is a is Penny, and they are very sweet indeed.
It was lovely to be up with FQ2FF and see all of her lovely handiwork for real.
I had already "met" Reading Mouse, but it was lovely to see him at home!
This stunning quilt adorned the staircase to our bedroom
And at the foot of our bed as this lovely runner...I just love these sheep....
...and this pair of love birds!
After much puppy cuddling and making the most of having wifi after 24 hours without it, it was time to say goodnight.

Today's Psalm:
   Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.


  1. On a par with Penny - how very dare you - surely what you mean is almost as sweet as Penny!
