I can’t believe I’ve missed the last two festive weeks in blog land. I hope that you all had a fantastic Christmas and are enjoying what’s left of any time off. I seem to have been living in some alternative world lately, so much has gone on yet we haven’t really done too much. We enjoyed a very quiet Christmas this year, the main reason being that Megan and I were both very unwell the week before and I certainly wasn’t up to doing anything elaborate.
There are a distinct lack of photos from this Christmas mainly as I’m the one who would normally take them, but what we do have are lots of photos from our new arrival!
Two weeks before Christmas (I know how crazy are we!), we drove to Swindon to pick up our beautiful rescue husky Maya. It wasn’t perfect timing but she was everything that we’d been looking for and we knew we couldn’t pass her up. She is 2/3 years old and when she was taken in was severely underweight. She’s still small for a husky and we have some work to do but her foster carers have done a fantastic job in the seven months that they’ve had her. Can you believe they were looking after eight huskies! Some of them waved Maya off in the window when we took her home!
The day after Boxing Day we had a child free morning and although the weather was bad I needed to get out if the house and blow away the cobwebs. We took Maya to Ogmore by Sea in the Vale of Glamorgan. It’s a stunning coast line where I have a lot of childhood memories and it was nice to create our own. The weather couldn’t make up it’s mind, when we arrived it was raining but there was the most beautiful rainbow, then the sun reappeared and the wind was biting.
Maya was rescued from London and had never experienced the beach before and it’s safe to say she loved it! I don’t think she expected the waves to be as cold but she had fun chasing them and playing with some other dogs.
