Another day out

Another sunny say. Up early to go to the surgery to give a few ounces of blood for testing. Dropped a bag of old clothes in the Sally box, then coffee in Waitrose.

None of this is getting me the exercise I need. So after breakfast Reggie and I did nothing much. Waiting for Claire to come home for lunch.

Once that was over, Reggie and I set off for Sissinghurst. Although I did the driving!

Today we tried a different route around the estate and I may have bitten off more than was sensible as I was a little cream crackered when we got back to the car.

Sissinghurst has an active estate and produces a lot of the produce for the restaurant, plus Kent is sheep country.

Even I was surprised to see a small field with four pigs nosing through the mud.

Once we got back to the castle itself,  I had Reggie on the extendable lead. 


He had slipped into the moat. He had gone down the bank to the water and fell in. He chose a bit tbick with green algae.  I got most of it off and we hurried back to the car to get him dried off. 

In the end I managed around two miles. Gradually building up the distance each day.

Poor Reggie, was he surprised to go for a swim?

More surprised than me. I was a bit inattentive as I had overdone it a bit.

Not far pre stent but it was a little too warm and I had him on the long lead!

Saturday we had more snow. Although we didn't get too much but what we did have froze overnight before it got topped up. On top of that...
