Rain, Rain and More Rain

Rain, Rain please go away

It's rained for days!! and the UK is on course for having the wettest year on record!
Our fuzzy hearts go out to any folks that have been flooded.
We count ourselves lucky that we live in an area that doesn't flood

That has put the mockers on us getting out and about to find step photos for Saturday Steps!
We hope to be back on track soon

********


The Big Move



We had to say goodbye to this view as Ganny and Grandpops up sticks and moved

First there was the farm sale

Folks turned up to bid and buy Machinery etc

Then the packing up started!!!



Mom has been helping them pack and unpack at their new home. 
That's why blogging has been taking a back seat
Me and George have still not been to see their new home, all we know is it has a big garden with fruit trees and they don't have an upstairs so its easier for them to get about.
I hope to bring you some photos for the next Tess

********    






Out and About With Friends


Our Welshie friends Roxy and Roger

This is little Roger, Mom says he looks just like George when he was a pup, all legs and curly tail.

 We met up at Attingham Park.
But part of it was flooded!



 No surprise with all the rain we've had

********


Christmas Day

Mom said that Father Christmas wouldn't visit until me and George were sleeping!

I had to watch TV to make me go to sleep






"Wow George loads to open"



We would like to thank the friends that gave us presents and sent us Christmas and e-cards. You touched us with your kindness.

********

Breaking News

We hope over the next couple of weeks to catch up and visit you.
Get some photos for Saturday Steps.
Take George on his Birthday Outting!!if we get one weekend without rain



"Tess, you have a review to do about "Pet Face"




"This one you're doing with me George, as we both have to have a bath!!"




"No way, I don't do baths!"




"Sorry George, but you will have to, as its part of the review"


It's a wrap for this months Tess, thanks for stopping by
I'll make sure George has a bath BOL.





Wishing you all a
Very Happy New Year

Love and Hugs George and Tess xxx

Sounds like you and your humans have been busy. Very good idea for the grands to up and move somewhere easier for them, makes complete sense, but must have been a bit of a wrench for all concerned. George and Tess make sure you give them lots of hugs. Happy New Year to you all and look forward to seeing lots of steps and walkies in 2013.

YOU ARE BACK! OK, I was worried about you all, but now I know exactly what kind of work mum has been up to. That sort of work will definitely take your time away from the 'puter!

Georgie, take your bath, love. Tessy is right.

Tessy, you as well as Molly the Wally you are both journalists extraordinaires. LOVE YOUR DEDICATION to bringing us the updates and I wish you all a splendid new year! WE HAVE MISSED YOU SO!!!!!!!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Let's have a fun year! Anita

Happy New Year 2013 to you, your Family and Furiends!
I hope to see you more in the New Year, I wish you health, wealth, happiness and love with lots of treats and let's cross our paws for nice dry weather because I live in Wales and just like you its been raining non stop and I have been dragged out for wet walks around my Village rather than my usual fun loving strolls in the countryside!
I hope your Grandpawrents are settling in to their new home, hope your Mum isn't too busy and gets time to relax!
I hope to see those Saturday Steps, The Birthday Day Out and The Shampoo Review soon! George a nice warm bath is excellent in this cold wet weather, I had one today and loved it!
I'm glad you had a nice Christmas, it looks like Santa was very kind to you both!
Thank you for the update Tess!
Love, Licks, Hugs and Tummy Rubs from your Furiend Frank XxxxX

Happy New Year George and Tess and your parents!

You sure have been busy. Too bad your grandparents had to move so you can't play on the farm any more, but I'm sure you will have fun exploring their new home.

Eileen said...

Happy New Year George and Tess,
We missed you but know how busy your folks have been. Your Granny and Grandpops new place sounds nice, must have been a huge upheaval for them, hope they are settled now.
I see Santa was very good to you, he's a great guy :-)
Oh dear a bath is on the cards for George, hope he's good. We know it's not a big deal for you Tess, you're such a water babe:-)
Love Eileen, Martyn and Annie xxx

Scooter said...

Hey Tess & George!
Wow, it's so great to see you both and your pix are really fun! Looks like you've been very busy, but you scored big with all of your pressies. Sorry about that bath thing, but I bet there was a lot of mud involved with all of your rain.
Happy 2013 to your whole pack!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all. Now I know why you've been so busy. Moving grandparents is hard work. Glad to here that they are settling into a better suited place. Hope it's close to you so you can visit often.
Father Christmas was very good to you. So many wonderful packages to open. Mama said her WT used to unwrap presents like nobodies business! Only she thought every package on earth was for her!

julee said...

Happy New year George and TEss, boy have your peeps been busy busy....thank goodness there is a Father Christmas and he took care of you.

Haroooo! and Happy Happy New Year to yaz Geoge, Tess, Mom and Dad! :D

The new digs of your Granfolks sound great! A garden and an orchard and NO STAIRS - my Mom's with them when it comes to stairs - much easier to move furniture without them :) Will be fun to see photos :)

Luv the raindrops on your background. You probably wish they'd go away BOL - that park of yours is lookin like a pond eh? - still pretty :)

Lookin forward to lots of fun with y'all this year! :D

Waggin at ya,
Roo

Happy New year to you two! This was a really good covering of the recent events in your lives. The farm sale was a bit nostalgic for our mom...Age seems to be working on her lately. Hope that Georgie had a good bath. Bol!!
