Goats milk yoghurt

I bought an ice cream maker to make the hooligans own ice cream (him indoors liked my own made stuff too, but I am not sure I am prepared to spend 15 minutes making custard again). Anyway for my little darlings ice cream,  I stuffed a piece of banana into the hole in the bottom of the kongs and whizzed the yoghurt and honey through the ice cream maker, then stuffed the kong.  Freezer for a couple of hours, and the hooligans had a lovely 5 minutes in the garden with them.  They keep licking their lips so I assume the sticky honey is lingering :)

I am not sure you need the gadget though, it would be just as easy to simply put the yoghurt in a kong and freeze it .... hmmm  However I got my maker on the tesco voucher exchange - it was half price, and spending vouchers that I got free.  So it was a bargain ;)

dog friendly beach

During the period March to October few beaches allow dogs.  We have one an hour or so away so the hooligans get to charge about and splash in the sea.  And dig.
Yesterday we noticed 2 dog wardens watching.  There were lots of dogs running about having fun and I hope the wardens  report back that the dogs had a good time, were well behaved and the humans  picked up. I will be sad if this bit of coast bans families with dogs.
