Who stole the champagne truffle……….?

Hmm…. I wonder who indeed!

I was sitting watching a spot of telly and could hear something rustle but couldnt pinpoint where from… so I got up and went to investigate…

Now I have no idea exactly how she managed to fly under the radar, but she did, in the kitchen I found my Irish Setter Naimh, in her bed, slowly and methodically making her way into my last thorntons champagne truffle that I got for my birthday…


Looking North ~ Our Walk with the Dogs.

Looking NorthOriginally uploaded by Towniesmallholder 

Its is such a beautiful day here today, the sun is shining and its almost spring-like, a perfect day for a walk with the dogs and the kids.I took the day off work today because the kids are off school for the rest of the week and rather than waste a perfect day we got our walking boots and fleeces on, and headed off across the fields with our dogs.


I have to admit to being a bit of a tree hugger when it comes to this particular tree.. for some reason I think its beautiful and I’m drawn to it for some strange reason… to me it is absolutely stunning.   The top picture is my son standing at the base of it facing north. The rest of the pictures below are of the rest of our walk… the spaniels in true fashion managed to find a big muddy puddle to paddle in whilst our irish setter just seems to run off and do her own thing 🙂

I took a few pictures of grasses and last years dried out plants.. they look rather stunning against the beautiful blue sky.

…..and Naimh

NaimhOriginally uploaded by Towniesmallholder

This is Naimh (pronounced Neeve) she is our 9 year old Irish Setter.

Naimh is my faithful companion, who sits with her head on either my lap, my arm or my laptop most evenings when i’m on here.

Its not very often you can get a good photograph of her as she usually disappears when I get the camera out… she’s a bit camera shy… but today a wee biscuit helped get her full attention.
