Change and chocolate ahead

Ted and KizzyKizzy and I were kindly invited by the maid and chauffeur to accompany them on their caravan hunting trip recently. They have a nice ‘van ( I spent a week in it last summer while we moved house) but I think the chauffeur craves a little more space to relax in after our walks on the proms of England.

As you can see from the photo, there were lots to choose from but at the moment our little Milly, the Avondale Dart 380/2, is awaiting her first trip out of 2016. So where will we go? Well, we have a weekend trip in May to West Yorkshire to look forward to, and this year I think we’ll be spending more weekends away, with being relatively close to the seaside hotspot of Skegness!

You may think I’m joking, but there’s a great promenade there, and more than one cafe when dogs (they often specify ‘small’ but that does apply to Kizzy and me!) can pop inside with their owners, as long as we are good and keep our paws firmly on the floor.

The Club on the telly and spring in the air

Candy was explaining to the presenter of BBC series Great British Railway Journeys about the origins of the Club, and a fine job she did too!

Ted watching tellyAs you can see, I was engrossed, and while the maid scrambled to find her camera, I watched intently from my perch on the ‘buffet’, as the chauffeur calls it. However, after a couple of shots the maid’s camera battery failed. Honestly, you just can’t get the staff these days!

Now we’re into February, it feels like spring is truly on its way. We’ve seen daffodils flowering early and even blossom on some trees, so it must be almost time to get Milly the caravan out of storage and check her over.

Ted is feeling festive

Ted at ashbyAs you’ll know, Cumbria has come off worst over the past few weeks, with devastating floods followed by snow last weekend. So it would be lovely to think that kindhearted caravanners will support this beautiful county’s economy over the Christmas period.

Quite a few Club Sites around the country are staying open over Christmas and into the New Year six of which are in the Lake District. The Eskdale Site, for example, is open until January 13, and is set in beautiful countryside with plenty of dog-friendly pubs (no doubt with roaring real fires!) to enjoy after a bracing winter walk.

Ted at CranwellIt will be Kizzy’s first Christmas and she is already enjoying the festive feel mainly wuffing at dogs on TV that are advertising seasonal gifts and products. There seem to be so many animals on the telly at the moment that we rarely get to watch anything in peace!
