Digitally Sweet Challenge - Pets

Well this week over on Digitally Sweet the subject is Pets! How could I not enter as my dogs have been a huge part of my life for so long.
This page is one of bitter sweet memories as both of these young dogs are no longer with me.
Willow was the daughter of the first Soft Coated Wheater Terrier we owned and Bronte is the mother of our one remaining dog Pooka who is now 14 years old and a bit wobbly on his legs.
These dogs are a joy to own but also so much hard work as they tend to live life in the fast lane, which can cause a few problems along the way.

24 Peaks Challenge

Earlier in the year the company I work for entered two teams into the Coins Foundation 24 Peaks Challenge.
I went along as part of the support team which included ferrying the teams around and moving the luggage into the rooms so that they didn't have to do anything, after all climbing the 24 peaks in 24 hours is a tough enough challenge so we did all we could to make their lives a bit easier.

The weather was foul with very high winds and driving rain, in fact at one stage it was so bad that it was touch and go if the whole thing was going to be cancelled. I think they did an amazing job and am so glad I was just there as a driver!

I am entering this into the Digitally Sweet challenge which this week is a sketch.

CD Sunday - Poetry Corner

Over on CD Sunday this week we are sitting in the Poetry Corner and  this is my contribution, I found the image on the Patience Strong cd by Joanna Sheen.

I hope you can come over and join us and visit all the team members blogs as they have some stunning work for you to have a peek at.

 It's a beautiful morning here with sunshine and blue skies so hopefully it will continue throughout the day and maybe we can tidy the garden.
