Blogging – The When and How?

“I read a blog recently about how long your blog should be and it got me thinking. Particularly the part on Frequency.” That’s something I saved as a draft over a month ago. In fact I haven’t blogged for the whole of August. I got engaged, I started planning our wedding and I just didn’t have something I wanted to blog about or the inclination to come to sit down and blog.

Since getting Kira we’ve attempted hundreds of sunset pictures with a few being really good. With the weather being so hot recently we’ve been taking our walks later […]

Hot Dog!

The last couple of weeks the weather has been gorgeous! And it looks set to continue! Sadly, this means that my facebook has been filled with sad stories of people leaving dogs in hot cars, walking them on hot pavements and over exercising them to the point of heat exhaustion. Today, we changed our plans because of how quickly it […]

One year on

“Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole” – Roger Caras Exactly a year ago today we picked Kira up and I think this quote is so true. Nothing really changed in my life other than getting a dog. We still live in the same house, I still teach at the same school but my life […]

Just take a minute to see

“What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.” – William Henry Davies With our lives so busy it’s often easy to rush around and not see the things around us. Today we took Kira for a walk. It’s a walk we do regularly, in fact we’d walked it Friday morning. But the […]
