But only if it will come when it's called. Otherwise everyone else who might be there risks getting molested by it. I hate getting attackef by 'friendly' dogs. I'd never have let my child slobber over someone if we were out for a walk so I don't see that it's alright for a dog to do it.
I agree that one has to keep a dog on a lead unless there is suitable space to do so. Recently I cam across a dog on a main road that was off its lead. Wrong place to have the dog off its lead. What if it had suddenly run into the road?
Suitable places are those such as parks/commons/forests etc where there is lots of open space and few roads.

I've just cancelled our main summer holiday, which was always going to happen but feels very sad. I'm hoping the boys might come and stay with us here and we can have some days out. I've rebooked for next year but that seems a very long way away.
Yea, I know it sucks big time. Last week I should have been travelling back from a holiday in Orkney and next week I should have been heading to Cornwall...

We should have been attending a family wedding in October, and also another event to celebrate my birthday. Everything now cancelled, and we are having trouble getting a refund for plane tickets out of BA. The furthest we are likely to get for a holiday this year is Inverness, and even that is looking doubtful just now with the ferry company vetting people about the necessity of their journey before they are allowed to board.

You can always stretch your tricycling wings Misterioso! Next target: Tescos. Then the CalMac jetty (testing brakes beforehand!)

The carpet on our stairs and landing has a bad moth infestation, so I have taken it up. I can't believe it is actually made of wool, as it is a really horrible old brown one. I was hoping that the floor boards wouldn't be too bad and I could leave it for a while, but they are terrible, including several holes! So I will have to get new carpet when the shops are open. The walls are also in a state, so I am now painting them as I might as well do it before having new carpet. All because a few insects decided my floor was an excellent place to raise a family.

We had problems with those a couple of years ago. Our carpet was put down when we moved in in 1988 (new house then), but does now need replacing as well as the room decorated. But we got rid of them. They laid eggs round the edges of the room ,and by lifting the carpet slightly and vacuuming them up a few times, the numbers gradually reduced. last summer there were just a few, and we haven't seen any this year yet. We were stymied by me having open heart surgery end August and just as we were going to get things organised for this summer we have lock down. Not sure what order to do things. The list is decorate (more than one room needs doing), two new bathrooms need fitting, the whole house needs double glazing, and the drive needs relaying (roots of a 'preserved' tree are lifting the block paving). Oh and the two cars are 8 and 10 years old now. We're into 6 figures easily now !

Does anyone else find it particularly annoying when pupils' parents repeatedly don't ring you back, especially when you know they are locked down (or should be). It's only their child's education.
