There was a very muddy bit in the middle (put in, we theorise, by the bloke who wrote the book of walks who clearly disdains easy walking over a comfortably smooth surface, and wants you to be bouncing off into the hills all the time). What with one thing and another a 5 mile walk ended up taking over 4 hours, which was really too much. Poor Mollydog has been limping all week and we've had to cut her walks right back. I think she's gettin better now though.
I've moved the cats onto Burns Ocean Fish catfood. It's the highest meat food I can find and it also doesn't contain any battery farmed chicken, which is a bit of a win because I've not been able to find that before.
We had a Mighty Burning, and got rid of *most* of the pile of cut wood, last year's Christmas tree and the year before's as well (it's been rather too long since we last had a burning) and a quantity of bramble roots. Particularly pleased about sending the branble roots to a firy hell, though alas there are more where those came from.
The bonfire took soooo long to get going, despite the use of paraffin, barbeque briquettes, dry kindling and firelighters to get it going - we started it about 11amish, but it wasn't really going well till about 2:30pm or later I reckon. Most of the wood was pretty sodden: I'm quite pleased we finally managed to get it to burn so well.
I've been disturbingly idle this week and have done a big rush of work this evening in a (failed) attempt to compensate. Bad, bad me.
