Ellie and I went out at 6am and we had a long walk along the river and as far as the golf course. She loved chasing around the fields and getting wet in the long grass with the morning dew.

There really are some lovely flower baskets down by the quay.

Mal and I then went into Canterbury and we had lunch at Chom Chom. The Thai Green Curry was exceptionally HOT but delicious.

The afternoon was spent in the garden.

It was a nice day and so we took Ellie to Stone Bay. It has to be one of her favourite walks. There are always a lot of other dogs there BUT dogs are only allowed on the beach until 10am (it changes to full use in September).

I looked at the weather forecast, no rain early so I took Ellie down the river. Even though I had a waterproof coat on, we both came back drenched. I really don’t know why I bother with the forecast.

The rain eventually stopped mid afternoon so Mal and I went to Deal. I managed to find another lovely dress for our holiday.  In fact we have booked two holidays, Italy and a cruise oh and also a caravan holiday . I don’t think I’ll be dressing up too much for the caravan holiday!

Sainsbury’s , where we normally park,  have changed all their parking system. They give you a ticket when you buy your shopping, £10+ and then scan it in the machine on the way out. I’m not sure what happens if you haven’t spent £10 as the old money accepting machines have all been covered up.

Mal was doing his work (teaching teachers online) and so I took Ellie out. She decided to have a mammoth run and I knew she was OK as it was right across the cricket pitch but she stopped in the middle and started rolling! Oh no fox poo in the middle of the pitch. By the time I got to her, she stank. Lead on and straight home and she had to have a shower but at least she doesn’t mind going in now, just walks right in. She knows! It was very humid so maybe she decided it was time for a shower.

Mal and I went out to have lunch at Faversham for a change, we rarely go there. Mal was pleased they had Baked camembert with garlic for a starter so that is what he had. I can’t think of anything more sickly……I had the mussels.

The weather was nice so we sat in the garden in the afternoon.

Thought for the Day – “We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. So don’t stay mad for too long. Learn to forgive and love with all your heart. Don’t worry about the people that don’t like you. Enjoy the ones that love you.

Monday 27th August 2018

Ellie and I were out early and a long walk by the river. By the time we were back on the quay, they were setting up stalls for today’s festival.

A lady at one of the stalls made a real fuss of Ellie and started chatting to me…..she came from Famagusta!

After lunch Lou, Rhys, Ollie Oscar and Josie came over and we all went to the festival and took Ellie with us. There were really a lot of people there, especially for the duck race. They evidently made £7,000 for charity! We had a good spot near the finish line.

It’s such a shame so many of the events were called off yesterday because of the rain.

Sad to say none of us won and so to drown our sorrows we went to the Crispin Inn for a drink.

Back to our house for some pizza.

We really had a good time. After they left we watched the football. Just as well they didn’t stay to watch it as Spurs (my team) beat Man U (their team) 2-0!!

Sunday 26th August 2018

Just Ellie to walk and so I was up early and we went for a very long walk along the river. It rained in the middle of it so we had to shelter under a tree. I didn’t expect that!

Sadly, in the morning they cancelled the aftrernoon’s  Festival events on the Quay. Such a shame there should have been music, picnic, fireworks and all sorts of other things. We planned on going, so instead walked round there earlier before the rain began. I think we had been back home for five minutes when it started. A lot of rain.

In the evening we met up with Dom and Jemma. They are going to travel around India starting in October and were telling us their plans.

Saturday 25th August 2018

We walked the dogs down by the river, the last time together for a while.

Later Lou, Rhys and the littlies came for a cuppa and to collect Roddie. I think Ellie was sad to see him go.

Lou, Ollie ,Oscar and Josie came back in the afternoon and we all went to Sandwich Carnival.  Rhys was back at work.

There weren’t too many floats but we listened to some music and then went to The Crispin for a drink.

After that they came back and had some tea.
