Outdoor Pursuits

Another catchup post today!

The summer is great for getting out and about. Especially in this country where you’re guaranteed a good spot of rain to really ruin your day!

Cambridge is particularly crap. I was promised lowest rainfall in the UK. Nobody bothered to tell me how it’s usually always overcast, grey, muggy and well, just a bit crap really. Sunny days are rare here! Fo sho!

However, I came from West Yorkshire so I know how to make the best of a bad situation. Ho ho! Next to the gym is a little paddock which has some “lovely” horses. The missus reckons they’re lovely but personally I’m terrified of them. Remember that scene in the Ring (2?) where the horse charges at the woman on the boat and leaps over the edge? How about The Godfather (1? 2? 3?) with the horse head in the bed? Yeah, not good with horses!

Anyway, here are some pictures of the evil beasts followed by a rare shot of the missus and then a couple more of Fleur taken in Epping Forest right before it rained! She is mental!

Anglesea Abbey and a little bit of Fleur

In more of my exciting catch up of pictures, I have these from back in June. It was the missus’ birthday and her dad took us all to Anglesea Abbey. Nice place but a bit of an overcast day that turned into rain so not great for pictures. Fortunately, Fleur was there to steal the show by running about like a lunatic!

My brand new niece!

I already have furry children as well you should know and now I have a furry niece. Although thankfully, not too furry!

The missus’ brother and his missus got a dog this year. A Hungarian Vizsla to be precise. She is beautiful but also very gangly.

Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce Fleur… (all shots taken on Midsummer Common)

She is a very friendly and quiet dog. Got on with all the other dogs really well. This one was my fave. He is called Augustus!

It was a bit of a grey and overcast afternoon but a lot of fun. I was hoping for some sun so you could see her coat shine but as we left it started to rain. Typical!

I wanted to give Augustus’ owner my details in case he wanted copies of the photos but I had no easy way of doing this so now I have designed and ordered a pack of business cards! They will be delivered shortly. Go me!
