I will be setting off to England tomorrow morning to see my family. I am so looking forward to seeing my daughter and grandsons.
I haven't seen Mr A since last Sunday. He is working at a hotel in Gumbet. As it's commission only and there aren't many customers yet, he has been staying in personnel accommodation to save money. He will come home this evening and take me to the airport tomorrow morning and head off back to work.
The dogs have a routine now. Blondie and Sammy stay in the dog area at the back of the house, and Megan in our garden, with her bed on the balcony. After much changing around, this arrangement is working. Blondie's confidence has grown and so has she..she's getting so big now! She and Sammy get on well, and Megan and Poppy spend the day in the garden together..they have become good friends.
Every morning around 6.30am, I let Megan, Blondie and Sammy out and they go for a run over the hill at the back of the house. It's impossible for me to attempt to take 4 dogs out on leads for a walk, so this is a good way for them to get exercise. They return anything up to an hour later and I feed them. I do the same thing early evening, and after an evening of barking (in response to dogs barking all over the village), they finally settle for the night.
While I'm away for 10 days, Mr A will be coming home every night and staying in the house, so they will be looked after and their routine won't be interrupted.
I've managed to get my camera working because I want to take lots of photos of the boys and their birthday celebrations, so I'll bore you with these when I return.
See you in 10 days time.
