Good morning peeps,
Well it's been a soggy few days for us here and I don't mean from the rain! I noticed there seemed to be a lot of water by the back door when I took Dude in the field on Sunday afternoon & by Sunday evening we had a lovely water feature in the form of a nice little fountain outside the back door and water running around the side of the house and creating a waterfall all down the steps in the front garden & out into the street. It was quite a crowd puller, several people were standing outside my front gate looking at it on Monday, even Ali had to keep going outside to admire it lol. By the time the workmen had dug up the patio outside the back door & found the burst water main & repaired it my poor kitchen was soaked in water & mud & as we have clay soil the mud is more orangey than brown, so I have been a busy girl trying to clean it up & catch the cats as they come indoors to wipe the mud off their feet so they don't leave muddy paw prints around the house.
Today is new challenge day at
