Tomorrow is always the busiest day of the week.
Bright sunshine. The roses starting to come into bud. A sure sign that ice and snow are on their way.
Bob and Sophie spend their day in the garden. Lopping, nibbling and digging their specialities. My New Years resolution is to get the garden under control. Or, rather, that's 'the font's' New Year resolution for me. Mine is to get a season ticket to watch the Toulouse rugby team.
There's a strong wind whipping off the Bay of Biscay. After a couple of hours outside Bob and Sophie's coats have doubled in size. Fluff dried PON's. They come inside for lunch, doze for an hour, then hare around the garden.There's something about the strong wind that excites them.
The district nurse now visiting the very old farmer four times a day. This may explain why the geese have again escaped from his paddock and can be found milling around on the far bank of the stream. Bob and Sophie make a tactical retreat to the orchard.
