R.I.P Maisie

Goodnight for the final time, beloved Maisie.  Life will feel very different without you, most loyal and loving friend, but we are so much richer for having known you and loved you these past thirteen years.  Thank you for all the adventures and the happy memories you leave behind.  We miss you so very much x

Snow at last!

It might not much, but it was very exciting to wake up this morning to a sprinkling of the white stuff. All plans for the day were swiftly cancelled until almost all of the snow had been scooped up and thrown at one another.  After an apprehensive start, Pippa thoroughly enjoyed her first ever snow day.

Happy New Year 2016

Happy Christmas 2015!

Double figures!

Happy 10th Birthday James!  After an early birthday treat at Twickenham, James spent his actual birthday with Charlie testing out his new penknife and fire starter kit.  We ended the day with Bond birthday cake and a sleepover.

It's that time of year when things start to get exciting at Knole park.  The rut is just beginning and this big guy is grunting away and flashing his antlers.  He has very little competition from rivals at the moment, a couple of young stags ventured into his patch but were quickly sent packing.  It's pretty special to see wildlife like this at such close quarters, and on our doorstep too.  And with plenty of trees to climb and places to hide, it was a great afternoon out with the family.
