We thought we'd put our orienteering skills to the test the other day.

We tried to find North by looking at the moss on the trees.
We have been told that it grows on the North side of their trunks.
OK, moss.
So this side of this tree must be North.

And this side.

And this side ...

In the end we decided it was easier just to follow the signposts.

On our last outing to Chiltern Open Air Museum we spotted a bunny.
We were keen to get to make a closer acquaintance.
The bunny was less enthusiastic.
Can't think why. 
It disappeared into Northolt Barn.
Possibly the biggest rabbit hutch in the world.

Angel tried to follow, but could only fit her head in.

Blooming marvellous

We went for a stroll round the Chiltern Open Air Museum yesterday so that
the Madwoman could goggle at 
all the burgeoning signs of Spring.



 Yep. Small, but definitely crocuses.


Bored now.

Sleeping position # 4

Sleeping position # 4 in an occasional series

The Harvey Smith*

(can be loosley interpreted as 'go away and stop disturbing me
while I'm snoozing, and you can take that camera away too')

Perfect in every way

Learning the ways of the Force am I ...
(and it's nice and warm under this fleece)
And no, thank you, but my bum does not look big in this. 
I am a wippitt so look perfect in everything.

The Body Beautiful

We've just had a spa day.
The Madwoman didn't actually go as far as putting us in the bath
thank goodness, we just had a good going over with the 
jelly mitt grooming glove. 
Followed by having our coats wiped over with a chamois leather.
Then the horrid bit: nails clipped and then buffed with a nail file.
Followed by refreshments. Well bribery really. 
So long as we keep telling the Madwoman we are terrified 
of having our nails done, the treats keep coming. 
She hasn't yet twigged it ...
Then we had our teefs brushed.
And we took it in turns to lick each other's ears. Yum.
And finally, the most important part of any beauty treatment ... the nap.
Zzzzzzzzzzz .....

Checking in

The Madwoman went shopping.
When she returned home, we welcomed
her to the newly installed Checkpoint Archie & Angel.
Well, you can't be too careful about who you let in.

Nom nom nom ... found some contraband ... nom nom ...
may have to confiscate this ... nom nom nom
