So how is it going and how is everyone feeling, spirits lifted due to the amazing sunshine? I really hope this weather is giving you all a new lease on life as it is certainly doing that for me.
I do want to highlight the importance of being hydrated for yourselves, your loved ones including your pets. I had an anxious experience on Bank Holiday Monday when taking my dog for a long walk and he over heated, I had to urgently get water/fluids in him but thankfully he is alright. So this made me think you can never be too careful and that getting dehydrated both human and animals is to be avoided at all costs.
