We just came back from a few days away. Well….it was supposed to be a “few”, but turned out only to be two. Saturday, Sunday, returning Monday. Now we actually went because of the dog. Let me explain….in a word, Fireworks.
Fireworks are the bane of our lives. From the last week or so in October, through to the middle of November, these things are let off randomly around where we live. Not including the big main “event” on the 5th. Our dog is terrified of them, and scrabbles on the floor, runs around the house, hides in the darkest cupboards, in an effort to escape. She shakes and pants and panics so much, its awful to watch. So, this year we booked a little place in the middle of nowhere, in an effort to get away from them.
It was a log cabin, surrounded by hills and water. (not the cottage pictured though)
Lovely walks in Autumnal woods
Being here was so relaxing and peaceful. But there were still fireworks. So we came home again. Because thats what we do. So far the night seems quiet, so fingers crossed. But the colours at this time of year are quite stunning – my phone doesn’t do them justice, sadly. But still….I love the countryside.
Hubby allowed me to post this – only because “its the back view” he said. He isn’t keen on getting his photo taken, ha!
