Grandpa’s beach.

Myles’s Dad had always talked about a secret beach that was on the Gower. It was never busy as you had to walk a fair distance to reach it.
We had one failed attempt walking over the cliffs from Pennard but turned back.
So today on Father’s Day we walked from Caswell Bay along the coastal path and found Grandpa’s beach.
It didn’t disappoint. Happy Father’s Day.

This is Rio, my kid’s school mascot. Rio is a blue raven and is teaching the school kids about their rights as children.
I promised Rio he could make an appearance on Doodlemum as he has told me how well travelled he is!


Nothing like a play in the park after school.

Crocheted by Grandma, this is blanket. It is Bonnie’s special thing.
Blanket gets arranged lovingly around her crate by Bonnie to make a handy pillow, (yes my dog likes a pillow).
Blanket is always brought out when we return home to great us.
Blanket smells, of dog.
But blanket is loved.

RIP Butter.

Evie discovered Butter’s body on Sunday morning. She was outside and showed no sign of attack, she’d even laid her egg. Only just a year old too. Poor Evie was really upset (and it was one of the females we’d hatched out last year).
She’ll be missed.

This mummy can…

…run 13.1 miles in two hours and thirty two minutes! It was quite a warm sunny day for Swansea so I’m very happy with my first attempt at a half marathon! Having Myles and the whole family shouting for me at the finish line was very emotional and lovely!
Thank you for all the messages of support, I carried them round with me with my little stash of jelly beans and water.
Thank you to all who kindly donated, it means so much, off to hobble over to the kitchen to make packed lunches for tomorrow now.

Flying Sat navs.

That’s me told, thanks Evie.


No not me!
One of my chickens is broody at the moment so I have to go in at various points throughout the day, (when one of the other hens has laid her egg) and remove the poor hysterical thing away from her adopted clutch.
It’s been a month now…

The waiting game.

From green to orange to red. My mouth’s watering thinking about it.
