On into the New Year

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. We saw the New Year in with our usual group of friends. It was touch and go as to whether we would join them as we have both had what seems to be known locally as 'The Lurgy ' basically a nasty cold and cough. The girls both decided against their New Year parties as they too were brewing the bug. 
New Year's Day found us out on our normal New Year walk. A good way to blow away the cobwebs. This year we walked up onto Felton Common where you can literally stand directly under the flight path for Bristol Airport just across the road from the start of the runway. It's a great pass time waiting for the planes.

Then watching them pass directly over head.

The airport has developed a lot in the last few years. The road has also been moved over. When I first came to live out this way there were traffic lights to stop the road traffic when a plane was landing.
Sadly more extension is planned.
Poppy also enjoyed her walk on the common and took no notice of the planes. She met quite a few other dogs which was quite a novel experience for her.

So now to my resolutions for 2018? I would certainly like to put some effort into starting blogging every day again. The perhaps to catch up on all those jobs I have been putting off. Let's see how long that lasts!
