New Year Update - Part 2

22 Dec 2006 - Newquay
Andrew, Amy and their German Shepherd, Jasmine, arrived for the Christmas period; Jasmine is one large dog with a wagging tail capable of destroying anything at the 2 foot level; she also has incredibly large feet so steel-tipped shoes are the order of the day! The only real trouble we had was that she desperately wanted to play with Annette’s two Shelties; unfortunately, they didn’t want to play and there was a lot of posturing, growling and snapping and we had to keep them apart until the last evening when they all laid down in the lounge together. We did spend a couple of days on Lusty Glaze Beach with them and they were fine as can be seen on the accompanying photograph. I have included an extra photo of the Old Folks!

The Christmas period was a most enjoyable time; in addition to Lusty Glaze, we visited the rather splendid cafe at Fistral Beach; this trip included some shopping in the Surf shops, which had a Sale starting and some purchases just had to be made!!

Annette and Clive provided a splendid Buffet meal on one day but we left poor Jasmine at home to avoid more confusion. Christmas morning we all went up to Trevose where Clive was working. I had too much to drink and slept most of the way back - it is nice when someone else drives!

When Andrew, Amy & Jasmine left, the house seemed really empty but we were left with some lovely memories and a lot of beds to change and washing to do!!
