Dilwyn the Bedlington terrier started out as a dessert, he ended up as the main dish

It’s normally my wife who walks our dog in the morning but, with her not feeling too well this morning (I know a few people who have seasonal viruses at the moment), I took on the dog-walking duty.

What a difference a day makes.

This time yesterday, we still had snow on the ground but now it’s gone completely.

It’s also very mild, and in the space of a few days, the temperature has gone from sub-zero to double-figures.

I walked the streets around our home and even though it’s concrete and brick, it’s still a pleasant environment.
