Easter is coming up soon but I am trying not to mention it in front of Meg and Katie as those crazy dogs get so excited. Having said that they get excited by pretty much everything, they lack the finesse of us cats! Last year Katie was so disappointed at not getting to go on the Easter egg hunt that Phil made it up to her and Meg by hiding doggie treats all over our garden at Flamborough Rigg Cottage for them to find. Please!

 

There are so many fun things happening over Easter up here in North Yorkshire I thought I would make a list for you. Have fun. Try not to say that Easter word too loudly in frony of Katie and Meg, you will only set them off chasing their tails. I am off back to my window seat in the sun.
