Learning is not the filling of a bucket but the lighting of a fire.
'They' excavate a hole in the turf that's been laid outside the font door. Sophie is hauled onto an outside table to get groomed. The mud literally hanging off her coat. No sooner is she on the table than she turns on her back and falls asleep. Clearly not a girl who suffers from anxiety or stress. She snores like a trooper. Not a decorous snore but a deep contented ' I'm far away from here so don't bother me now ' type snore. Grooming is delayed.
Bacon, sausage and egg for dinner. The limits of their owners culinary kills. Half a sausage as a pre-dinner treat. Both PON's thoroughly approve of a little bacon and sausage with their kibbles. From the way their bowls are cleaned dinner scores 11/10.
Never throw out old clothes. Angus finds an old jumper, rolls it up and ties the arms around it in a knot. Bob spends two happy hours under the old bread oven in the 'snug' ( a spot that he thinks grants him the power of invisibility ) unpicking the knot.No expensive toy would have lasted half that time.
