Apologies for the blog hiatus over the past few weeks. We have been in school holiday mode doing a lot of this:
….. and then in Devon doing a lot of this:
…. as a consequence of which the garden is rather overgrown and the house very untidy. Added to which, I dropped the camera after taking the above picture, after which none of the subsequent photographs are downloading on to the computer – so even if I wanted to post some pictures of the overgrown garden and untidy house – I can’t! So there’s only one thing to do… which is start restoring some sort of order to the place…. Not a task I particularly relish, but it has to be done. I am rewarding myself an interim swim in a couple of hours’ time. Normal Blog service will be resumed as soon as possible.
The only other thing to report is that Tinker had her first birthday yesterday. How amazing to think that just a year ago all those six puppies were the size of small guinea pigs. What an awful lot has happened in the course of this year…
