    Oh, the GSD looks so confused! I'm glad there are a few of us who are old enough to know better but don't care!

    I don't worry about anything really. Since surviving critical illnesses in 2009 and 2012 I don't waste calories worrying anymore. I'm just glad to be here and seeing the view outside is enough. I keep life simple, am easily pleased and any goals in my life are basic and easy to achieve. :)

    Thought you might enjoy some more pics from woodland. These are from our holiday last week in Southern Scotland - pics from our morning walks and last pic view from our accommodation @Pink_Minx there wasn't a sound at night since we were in the middle of nowhere, I was thinking of you and wishing for you the same silence

    Very relaxing. My friend stays on the borders, Wauchope Cottages. Dog friendly.

    Yes, that area is a bit south of where we stay but our accommodation welcomes dogs too. It's so peaceful Jan and ideal for walkers - both 2 and 4 footed varieties

    Oh, @13lizanne - that is so beautiful! We were just talking about going to Scotland for a holiday quickly in case another referendum means we'll need a visa to get there! Hope you had an amazing holiday.

    Also, thank you for thinking of me at night (I think! )

    ps - downstairs idiot has been loads better with noise, so I'm thinking my husband had an effect!

    They've been at it this afternoon. Alfie dares to try & sit in the bay window with her, she hisses & spits & they're off. Up the stairs, she dives under my dressing table & we can hear Alfie banging on the floor as he tries to get at her.

    Can't get more of an anti scream than this. 7.9 pre dinner, 5.1 post.
    I made some date and walnut cakes and although I used Total Sweet (xylitol so must remember not to let dogs have any) I'd been licking at the mixture on my fingers after scraping off spatula ... and a few more bits fell into my mouth...
    Hungry now and fancy a bit of said cake but it's homemade fish cakes for tea.....so best not

    Don't worry, I'm sure you'll be fine as you have towed before.
    Wauchope Cottages on the Scottish Borders are nice and DO take dogs, lots of dogs, BIG dogs

    PS @PatsyB check that the caravan site accepts dogs
