And in today already walks tomorrow.
Caroline , the new cleaning lady , suggests that '' it would be good if we had a lighter hoover to clean the top of the curtains ". Angus points out that this would mean we would be a four hoover family. Five, if you include the one that Caroline brings with her. The look I get in return tells me I'm spreading bad karma.
The ladies of the women's cooperative are very much into karma. They are also into Bart Simpson hairstyles, dungarees, hand woven alpaca pashminas and chanting while sitting cross legged on the floor . Recently they have established a collection of wallflower filled zinc baths . These now line the pavement like a row of brightly coloured battle cruisers. This makes parking difficult. Angus has a sneaking suspicion they are also into grow your own, smoke your own recreational pharmaceuticals. However, some thoughts are better left unvoiced.
Bob and Sophie spend their day barking at pilgrims on the lane, digging up the lawn and trying to find a way through, or over, the fence into the compost heap beyond. We stand and watch as Sophie runs up Bob's back and attempts to vault over the fence towards the silage beyond. After half a dozen attempts she finally recognizes she's failed. In the evening Bob finds a pair of 'the fonts' shoes left unguarded on the floor of the study. These are quickly chewed.
