I think the two of them would get on like a house on fire! We haven't been to the sea as yet. Perhaps after my knee is better. When we took our retrievers, they loved it but wouldn't stop drinking the seawater so consequently were both sick (as dogs)!
I'm just about to have a Pimms. I can't remember when I last had a drink. I just don't like gin, whiskey, brandy etc. I can only stomach things that don't really taste very alcoholic (Dry Martini with lots of lemonade, Pimms with lots of lemonade). I used to like wine but as the meds built up I found even a sip burnt my mouth.
I hope the move goes well. We moved around so much earlier in our marriage we got used to it. Last year when we moved here it all went really well. We moved on the spur of the moment to be nearer to my son and his wife so we could help with the triplets. We had already booked a holiday so really we were very laid back. We got home to be told everyone in the chain was ready to move the next week so we didn't really have time to get stressed, we just had to get packing! I definitely think that when you have to do something you just get on and do it. I did have a bit of a meltdown when we got here though. After leaving our old place spotless, this place needed cleaning from top to bottom. If it wasn't for my daughter-in-law arriving with her degreaser and setting to work on the kitchen, I don't know what I would have done.
