Christmas day night as my husband, David and I were about to retire. I had a brain wave. I went and checked that we had enough sausages and bacon about the place and suggested to David, that we could have breakfast a bit later in the morning, having a good old English fry up and thus skip lunch and get out for a good walk with the children and dogs.
I don't often do a good old English fry up. We don't tend to eat very much fried found, but as an occasional treat it goes down a real treat. I do like a bit of Brown sauce along with my fry up and rather than HP Brown sauce, which is made now in Holland. I like a Brown sauce that I consider is head and tails above HP sauce in texture and taste and it is still made in the UK by Wilkin and Sons Ltd based at Tiptree, Essex, England. You can find this Brown sauce in most supermarkets and if you have not tried it yet and like Brown sauce, you won't be disappointed.
So we had our hearty breakfast just after 10 am, this morning, got the dogs that were not coming with us run out and the house chores done, and then set off for Saunton Sands beach just after 2 pm with Millie and her Granddaughters, Blottie and Bumble in tow.
Where we live it is on the side of the Taw Valley and our home sits in what locally we refer to as ,'the lew of the hill.' The word 'lew' in this case comes from Old English meaning “warm, sunny, sheltered”and often I can leave our home with hardly a breeze in my face to walk just above our home and be nearly blown over, as was the case today at home it hardly seemed much of a breeze, but at the beach it was really blowing, it was dry and mild though. Got a few photos of the dogs running about and some lovely landscape photos with the low Winter sun coming through the clouds.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
