We don’t know about you but we’re happy to be leaving January behind. Not only does the start of February mean a step in the right direction towards longer days and better weather, but for those who managed Dry January, pub stops are back on the cards. What better way to spend a Sunday than a nice, country dog walk ending with a roast dinner and a couple of drinks?
