We joined hundred of people on the beach at Llandudno today to watch the annual charity Boxing Day dip in the sea. Folks of all ages making a mad dash from the prom to the sea and swimming around for a few minutes in water that was said to be minus nine degrees ..... brrrrr, rather them than me !!
See this local newspaper report for more information, (my picture is from the paper).
It was also a brilliant doggy day out with dogs of every size and breed walking the promenade with their owners. Ours were totally overwhelmed meeting so many other dogs in one day. They are both fast asleep now tucked up in front of the woodburner basking in the heat. and no doubt dreaming doggy dreams of a trio of enormous Huskies and the strange little bad tempered Pug-a-poo, a Pug cross Poodle, who looked like an ugly poodle but with a Pug's tail (the only cute thing about it, poor little thing).
Once back home we got cracking to slightly adapting our new henhouse which in our opinion has a couple of design faults, so we've corrected some of them to suit our birds better and also added an indoor water drinker and food dispenser so the hens that want to stay indoors in the worst of the weather can do and still be able to eat and drink.
So one way and another it's been another busy day, and now it's time to crack open a bottle of wine and that box of Maltesers I spy lurking in the fridge.
I hope your Boxing Day was just what you wanted it to be.
