I think we were lucky that we chose to walk Ellie over the fields instead of The Butts, along the river where we often go. Gossip has it that the emergency services pulled a body from the river. The place is swamped with police cars.
It was wet and muddy over the fields but Ellie loved it.
Later I went into Deal to do some shopping. Everywhere was packed so I didn’t stay too long. By the time I arrived home Mal had sorted out the Christmas tree.
The big football game in the evening! England v Wales and yes we won. Glad to see Foden playing this game.

We took Ellie for a walk in the rain and then later Daisy arrived for an overnight stay. She is the goldie we had before who doesn’t want to go home. She really is a sweetie.
We watched the football and then of course we had to have wet walkies.
Then drying two goldies!! I have Ellie is trained to come in and lie on the towel, not with Daisy! She thought it was a great game to run around and let us try and catch her but we couldn’t stop laughing!
Thought for the Day – “Dogs are not our whole life but they make our lives whole.”
No rain today and so we took Ellie to the “Beach Buddies” at St Mildred’s Bay. We haven’t taken her for a while and again she chased around with all the other goldies.
It was really nice to meet Barnaby too who is an assistance dog, a guide dog for his blind owner who had a short while off duty to play with all the other goldies.
I spoke to his owner and hadn’t realised that they retire the dogs at 8 but are thinking of extending it to 10 as they don’t have enough dogs. The one I am sponsoring at the moment is Grace, at the beginning of her two years of training.
Ellie slept most of the afternoon! Mal went to the allotment to do some weeding. Unusual to be weeding this time of year. I watched the football.

The sun was out and no rain and so we took Ellie to Minnis Bay.
She loves it down there and ran and ran. She is now much faster sinTce she has lost 6 kg. She has a new lease of life, which is excellent.
Back home in time to watch Wales get beaten by Iran. Very pleased about that!
I then spent about an hour sorting out Hatters Christmas meal. I can’t believe they can get so confused about when it is/what they have chosen and what they have paid!! A good thing I keep very methodical records of everything. Mal says “it’s because they are all old!!” LOL. One had given me her choices but had paid no deposit and ignored my emails??!
The England game in the evening, disappointing and frankly boring!

Shopping in the morning and I bought a Christmas tree on the spur of the moment! Fresh ones seem extremely cheap this year. Mind you, it may be bald by the time Christmas arrives. I was obviously the first person to buy one as they had to get a screwdriver to undo the crate and then the young lad kindly carried it out for me and manoeuvred it into the car. This was in Lidl.
My theory is you get much better customer service at Lidl and Aldi than the big supermarkets and I love their selections this time of year particularly.
We watched the Brazil game in the evening. A fantastic second goal for Richarlison, Just a shame he doesn’t score like that for Spurs!
Thought for the Day – “One day your life will flash before your eyes – Make sure it’s worth watching.”
