Getting ready for the Howlidays

Well I know they are still a long way off but the Ogre has been busy making lots of Berner things add to our shop. Hopefully that will mean she can buy us lots of goodies & pay for all the baths the K.I.T needs.

The Ogre has made some lavender sachets and the lavender comes from our own garden.

She has also decorated & lined some lovely little wooden boxes, the lining is our favourite paw print fabric.

She is now going to get making some hanging decorations & some pressie tags.

Don't forget you can also buy cards from our Zazzle shop.

Shorne Woods

The Ogre took us to a lovely place this weekend. It was really big, we should have taken a picnic with us as well as lots of water.
There were lots of shady spaces
Lots of things to climb on

We think this was a little place for people to rest & have a small picnic

We found a Troll bridge, but no Trolls
We stopped for lots of photos

The Ogre thought this tree would make for a good picture, we did not 

Now this is more like it, we found the Kingdom of the Faeries. This was a very special area where the kings or Elders would meet to trade or make laws

Each one of the Thrones was named for the kings of each Kingdom, you can't see it in the photo but their species was carved into each Throne, Faeries, Elves, Dwarves but many of them were broken & we could not read them anymore.

Shorne is a very ancient woodland & we found the scars of many battles.
We had a lovely time & will go back again but the Ogre did say the price of parking was not good (£3 weekends & bank holiday, £2 the rest of the time)

A new place to walk

On Sunday we went for a walk with thousands of other Berners, it was the Bernese World Wide Walk. 

We went somewhere new to us. It wasn't very far away, not like the beach was when we met up with others before.
This time it was a place called Trosley Country Park.
It was a nice place with parking (you had to pay though) but there were parts where you were near a road.

We took the smaller walk with everyone, around the Woodland Walk. There were some people with walking sticks so they couldn't walk too far & we stayed on the built paths.

We took lots of photos but these are a few with most of us in.

We were very well behaved, especially the KiT. There were lots of areas where you could stop for a rest but we didn't really need it.

The Ogre took lots of pictures of the 2 of us in the Bluebells, they smelt wonderful & there were just so many of them.

After we had all gone round the other ogres decided to go to the cafe & have some food & drinks. We really hadn't walked enough for us so we went back out & took the Downland Trail.

That is when we found the Faeries, hidden away from everyone.

Eventually we made our way back to the car, most of the other ogres had left by this time. We had another long drink then lay down ready for our trip home. By this time we were quite tired out.

No surprises today, well maybe one

It was lovely weather today so we got to go to the Heath. 
We met some Firemen whilst we were there, there was no fire but we think the were "in training" so we left them alone.

We kept our eyes on them for a while, just to make sure they were ok. 

The Ogre made us pose for photos again. It takes her a long time to get us both looking in the same direction & of course one of us always has to spoil it, usually the KiT.

Just having a little rest before carrying on following the red markers so we don't get lost.

Well the Ogre never managed to get a picture of the running dog but he came pelting around the corner and straight past us. The KiT gave chase & the Ogre started shouting again. 

The KiT got almost out of sight before she finally turned and came back. The Ogre had started running the same direction just in case she didn't stop. The little dog was well out of sight, much faster than the KiT.
We had already visited Katherine the Mermaid's lake, she still hasn't returned & there is only mud left where her lake used to be.

We came out of the wooded area & back to the grass where the sun was still shining.
We met a little black dog which was frightened of us, he said we were too big so we sat down & shared some treats with him to show we were ok. Unfortunately the KiT got bored & started running around so we had to leave.

Hope the weather was nice where you are. Have a lovely day.

A battle with a Dragon

We took the chariot to the Kingdom of Farningham again today, we wanted to check on the Trolls that had been chased out of the forest. 

We found their bridge had been re-built, this made us think that they had come back so we went in search of the baby that had been left behind.
The baby was happy & well, a bit older now and able to look after himself. He had re-built his home with the help of some Ogres he had befriended,

So we set off to explore the rest of the forest.

There were lots of Bluebells flowering, they smelt wonderful.

We managed to find a watering hole. The KiT jumped straight in. The Ogre turned the air blue, screaming something about how we had only just had a bath & didn't need another expensive day at the spa. The KiT has been banned to the kitchen now we are home.
Then we turned around to visit the Fairies and were met with utter devastation. What had happened? We knew instantly that there was a Dragon around, no other creature could do this so quickly.
It didn't take us long to find the Dragon. A massive battle ensued but we triumphed. We brought the Dragon down & the forest is now safe.
We made sure all the fires were out but there was just so much that the Dragon had destroyed. It will all eventually grow back but for now it looks desolate.

We had a great day, we are now both very tired so time to catch some ZZZZ's
