The weekend began with a gloriously sunny walk up Bamford Edge again. We wanted to see it on a finer day than the snowy one we had experienced previously and it was wonderful, however the wonder came to an abrupt end. Doug somehow did a Houdini out of his harness and bolted off after a couple of startled sheep. Kyle set off in hot pursuit across the heather-covered moorland, but not until he had covered at least a kilometre did he manage to catch up with the pup, who had since lost the sheep and wandered up to a nice couple who held onto him for us. I jogged to catch up, carrying both of our bags and then tried not to lose it upon finding Kyle clutching Doug whilst mid asthma attack. Not the relaxing start to the weekend we'd had in mind!!
The following day was much more relaxing, with a leisurely stroll at our favourite dog walking spot. Later that day we began our latest mission to spring clean the heck out of our little house.
After our initial start of sorting out our stuff and cleaning with Kyle, I continued on and off for the next five days. The piano which was in my studio was moved downstairs and chairs were moved to my parent's, bags of stuff were either donated or recycled. I cleaned and scrubbed and space was somehow created by trying to be a little bit more clever with the layout of the rooms. Whilst it is still not quite finished, it sure looks and feels so much better.
My garden has gone a little crazy this week with the alternating heavy rain and warm sunshine. It makes me so happy to pop outside to see how it is all coming along. I really can't wait until the gooseberries and strawberries are ripe enough to eat!
