Upon the high seas

 A couple of weeks ago we took a trip on along the river Medway.  We were supposed to go the week before but there were wind gusts of 50 mph+ so thought better of it.





 Went for a big dog walk with a friend yesterday.  Had lunch in a village pub, then walked back, stopping of at a new brewery and tap room in town for a couple more.  Arwen was pooped afterwards!



Eastbourne Trip

A good portion of the Tonbridge Massive went to Eastbourne on Saturday to visit some of old friends that had moved down that way.  April decided to hitch a rid on the back of Jono's bike.



Long time no post

I quit my job a few weeks ago.  Leading up to that I was fairly stressed with work and on the Monday I decided to hand my notice in.  Seeing what had happened to Ross a few weeks previous I didn't see the point of doing something that was stressing me out and also something I didn't even enjoy.  Anyway, luckily I didn't have to do much handover so am now in the last week of a nearly 3 week break which has been great, the recent spell of good weather has certainly helped too.

I've now got a new role lined up and am due to start next week (the laptop arrived yesterday).  They wanted me to start this week but I really need the break so pushed it back.

Covid-19 Vaccinations

 I had my 1st dose of the covid vaccination last Monday and more or less felt fine.  That was until the night when I went to bed.  I was feeling a little tired so went to bed early but woke up multiple times during the night with night sweats.  The next day I was a little tired and run down but more or less fine then I had the same again at bed time although not quite as bad.  After that I was completely fine.  Weird.

Early tea

 We had early tea again on Sunday.  Same place as last week, this time with different friends.  Although it turns out the friends from last week and some other friends were also there.  Doh!


Here's Arthur making an escape attempt.

Brunch

After the walk we popped over to some friends house for brunch in their back garden.





Arthur's almost eating as much as Flo now.

 

Lovely walk

 I didn't have much time to myself this weekend (or last) so on Sunday I was out and about early on a long walk with Arwin.


Beautiful house

Waiting a long time for the ball I didn't bring

Blossom now fully out in the orchards

Not sure where she learnt the art of elbow smash


 

Spot the ball

 I launched one or Arwen's balls into this tree this morning expecting it to cascade down like a binomial machine  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m4bxse2JEQ 


I waited but nothing happened.  The ball never landed.  The tree was too big to shake so Arwen was left without a ball for the rest of her walk.  Sorry Arwen.

Maybe it was the spirit of the tree we took down yesterday enacting some form of revenge.
