sunday days

Last Sunday none of us wanted to do any work & we all wanted to get outside, so R, H, Holly & myself hopped on a bus that was heading out of the city. We got off (at the wrong stop) and headed for the animal shelter. We were handed the leads of two rescue dogs & the 6 of us headed out into the woods. Walks at the weekend are good at the best of times, but walks with dogs just seem a ton better. They started off so nervous but by the end of the walk they were dragging us all over the place and quite content to demand our attention. I fell a little bit in love & wanted to bring them home with me! We'll definitely be going again - it was lovely to get outside in the fresh air & know that we were doing a little bit of good at the same time.

It was my favourite kind of winter - cold, clear and still and we managed to accidently time it so we were walking during golden hour - it couldn't have been more perfect. I feel like I'm comfortable with my new camera now, it seems like such an odd thing to say but its weird having buttons in different places & its taken some getting used to!

This week has been another crazy-busy one, Thursday I left the house at 8:30 and got back after midnight! It's a good kind of crazy though. I'm looking forward to a couple of slow days before Monday shows its head again.

Do you have plans for the weekend? Have you ever walked rescue dogs? 


  1. Didnt know you could walk rescue dogs! Sounds like a great idea :) xx

  2. That's so kind of you to volunteer. My 2 dogs are from the Dogs Trust and if I lived closer to one now, I would definitely do this.x
