All this rainy weather means my dog needs a shower everytime we come back from our morning walk. He doesn't seem to mind and stands really quietly while I wash him, though there is a knack to shampooing and rinsing BEFORE he shakes himself! He loves nothing more than rolling around a muddy field with other dogs, so it is a small price to pay.
We took a trip to Holmfirth at the weekend to one of the wonderful ART Markets. There are lots of stalls selling beautiful, quality handcrafted goods. I bought a couple of Christmas presents.
If you are nearby and fancy a trip there is another Art Market this Sunday. More details at:
