It was very windy but sunny and so we took Ellie out for a long walk. We headed for Wickhambreaux so of course Ellie had to have a paddle in the river. We walk along the Little Stour.

We have just heard we have more viewers on Friday. What would we do without David who looks after our house so very well? Kenny now has the plaster off his arm so things are looking positive for him.

We watched another ‘Strike’ in the evening. We are up to date now.

David told us that we are having another viewer today and we have even received feedback from the estate agent. Who knows. No matter how positive things seem we have learnt not to hold out breath! 

We took Ellie for her walk and then I went shopping.

Mal went to the allotment, there are a lot of squash there so I roasted one of them for dinner.

Wenderton Farm has now harvested 700 tonnes of pears and are now starting on the gala apples. 

In the evening we watched another episode of Strike. It reminds me a little of “Shoestring” from oh so long ago. We seem to be getting very behind with programmes we want to watch.

Demelza day and don’t we look smart? This is the “Monday Gang” minus Jack who was on holiday but our Manager, Lauren, was impressed that we had our Demelza T shirts on! It seems none of the other shops wear theirs.

We really do have a a laugh and the customers join in with our happy mood! A couple of them have said they love coming in on Mondays! That’s nice to hear.

Mal had dinner ready when I arrived home.

Lou and Rhys had tickets for the Radio 2 Party in the park in Hyde Park so Mal and I looked after Josie, Ollie and Oscar. An early start so we were at their house by 8. Poor Rhys had been working and only had 3 hours sleep. I drove them to the station. Unfortunately they had rain during the concert which was a shame. The weather in Herne Bay was a lot better and we took both dogs for a walk along the sea front in the sunshine! By the time we arrived at Kings Hall, we were all in need of an ice cream!

I cooked a roast for us all and then we watched quite a lot of the concert from Hyde Park and tried to spot Lou and Rhys. Amongst 60,000 people we didn’t stand a chance BUT they did bump into my sister and niece while they were there! Meanwhile my other niece, Julie, was running the Great North Run with her friends, dressed up as Minions and were interviewed on the TV!

We had a fun day with the kids.

We had sold several things on Ebay and so took them to Wingham for Hermes delivery. Ellie was with us and so our walk was around the orchards, They were very busy harvesting the apples and also the Wenderton farm pears.

I did sample an apple…delicious.

The sun was out and we had lunch outside. Mal popped to the allotment to dig up some more potatoes and spinach.

Spurs did well, we watched that game  and then the start of Strictly.

For some unknown reason Ellie woke me up at 5.45 and then went and layed down again!  I decided to make a cup of tea and as it looked as if it was going to rain later, I took her out for a walk. We didn’t get too wet. 

I then went shopping. Our bathroom scales have broken and so I  looked for some more only to discover that most of them had 15 year guarantees. I phoned Mal and as we bought ours from Amazon, he looked up the order and yes, ours had a 15 year guarantee as well! Mal contacted them and they told us to just return it post free. So we have ordered another from Amazon.

I have been bidding on a heated Hostess Trolley on Ebay. I just thought it would be a good idea for Christmas as we are having so many people for lunch. It was to be collected from Folkestone. I messaged the seller yesterday and made sure, even though it said in the description,that it was in full working order. Yes, they confirmed that it was. I have been the highest bidder for a few days and it was very cheap. It ended and I won it. I contacted them to ask when I could collect. They messaged back to say it wasn’t working. Oh yes, suddenly after I had won it at a very low price.  It was to pay on collection so there is nothing I can do about it. Total time wasters. 

In the evening I met up with the “No Hatters” at Margate Winter Gardens. We used to be the Red Hatters but Jackie decided to stop being Queen owing to ill health and none of us wanted to do it. But we still meet up from time to time. This time we went to see the Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons Tribute band. They were so good, they could have been the real thing way back then.  Jane even managed to get her photo taken with them after the show. By this time she was in love with one of them!

I do love these girls, between them they have no end of medical problems but always have a good night out!

Ellie has been scratching even though I applied flea treatment two weeks ago. I have a feeling it is probably the dead ones falling off her. Of curse we are surrounded by fields, farm animals and other dogs. However to make sure, I sprayed all the carpets in the house, just in case.

Meanwhile, we took Ellie to Minnis Bay. It was such a lovely day and the sun was out.  There were very few people down there now the kids are all back at school. We even saw a cormorant at the far end of the beach.

Of course Ellie enjoyed herself in the sea again. 

 

On the way back to the car my sandal fell apart. That will teach me to go paddling in the sea with them on! 

Back home and I hoovered the carpets again and flung all the doors and windows open to get rid of the flea stuff! Hopefully that has done the trick. The thing is I haven’t even seen any on Ellie but just in case.
