I had a half day on Friday and then we all drove to Llanelli where we were staying in a Premier Inn before driving into mid wales to pick up our new King Charles cavalier puppy, Lola. Luc had been ill on Thursday and was not allowed back at school on Friday, so we were able to set off at 2.30pm.
The journey from Canvey Island took ages with a few stops on the way. In the evening, we ate at the Sandpiper restaurant (Brewers Fayre) that was attached to the Inn. Luc was really well behaved but Georgie was not on her best behaviour. The meal was very good though - I had lasagne which I hadn't had out for years..
At breakfast we appreciated how nice the area was. At breakfast we looked over a lake with loads of birds flying in. The Welsh scenery was really spectacular on the drive with brooding hills and mountains. A summer holiday at St. Davids might be the order of the day!
Georgie was ill (sick) on the way to Blaenpennal and so the puppy pads were used even before Lola arrived. The farm is in beautiful countryside and there were lots of dogs and horses. We picked up Lola and then I had a really long drive home. It's nearly 2 hours' drive to get to the end of the M4 and then the small matter of driving nearly the length of the M4, M25 and A13! We had sandwiches for dinner.
It's now Sunday evening and Lola seems to have settled really well but Buddy still isn't too sure!
