walking with Ede

My walks with Ede , down by the river or in the woods are such a joy-even in the rain!!
We meet some other dogs and their owners have become friends . The other day we had 14 dogs and they all got on!!

Back to it then!

Ede will miss the kids when they are at school- she will miss jumping into bed with them in the morning!!

Well the holiday is well and truly over what with- seems like Autumn is here. The kids are back to school on wed. I always have mixed feelings about this on the one hand i can get-on with stuff but i will miss the monkeys- the help they have given me. Poppy loves helping me out in the shop and loved trailing round the vintage trade fair with me at the ungodly hour! I always feel iv been a crap mum at the end of the hols , iv just faced the fact this time i am crap at doing parks etc and I'm better at baking cakes and walks around the river.

We are all dreading the back to it feeling of getting up early and homework - i am always procrastinating the fact THEY ALL HAVE TOO MUCH HOMEWORK!!

What a view from the terrace
Step into the villa

Up the wooden stairs

We lived in the pool as it was so hot

Villa Eski - garden Lots of rambling climbers and plants, just my type of garden. The smell of Jasmine -divine my favourite scent of all!!

Kas harbour

We all had the most relaxing holiday-something about Kas draws us back -The bohemian Turkish town steeped in history -with stylish shops and cool bars but no English stamp remarkably.

Boat trips to Kekova with swims , Canoeing too

Back to work now !! The shop will be open tomorrow -Sat .
