I thought you might like to have a look inside the house.......
We are under Red Alert today for winds. Brings back memories of the last Red Alert when a hurricane descended on us on 24th January 2009. We were living in a caravan at the time, and we really got smashed up in more ways than one. The Red Alert is for avalanches as well. Since we live in the flatlands at the foot of the Pyrenees I don't think we need worry about having a ton of snow dumped on our heads.
Some of the fields are flooded, but not too much, and the loo is not emptying properly because the ground is saturated which is stopping the fosse from working efficiently. The puppies did four hours of early morning hooliganism before they collapsed in a heap. They are now asleep. They do not like the world outside, but Blue did a tiddles outside. Hooray! Meanwhile we continue to mop up from the floor puppy rear-end spillages.
I feel a need to be very strict with them, and refuse to be seduced by their plump velvety-ness, so I am not picking them up and cuddling them any more. I am mindful that in a few months time they will have grown bigger and will squash me if I allow them to sit on my lap. I am also encouraging them not to jump up, again mindful that one not does not want to be knocked over by a leaping lump of a dog. They are gorgeous, but they will be trained. Gussy does not like them at all, and has removed himself into the Hallway. Bools is good with them providing they do not wake him up too early in the morning. Lester is besotted.
Hope you enjoyed your wander through our house. Once again, apologies for zooming the camera around.
