The brain is a wonderful organ. It starts the moment you get up and does not stop until you get into the office.



It pours with rain. The little angels are kept indoors. 'The font' knots an old pillow case and gives it to them to play tug-of-war with. Sophie hasn't quite got the hang of tug-of-war. She grabs the pillow case and disappears with it . Bob accepts this antisocial behaviour in stoical silence. However, when Bob gets the pillow case Sophie goes into her crazed diva routine. '' My life is ruined. Do something about it !!! ". We end up rug surfing in the long corridor upstairs.



Bob and Sophie have a long walk along the valley by the river. There are lots of badgers and their cubs about so the PON posse are kept on their leads.  The plumber arrives at eight. He abseils down the well. Bob and Sophie are keen to become actively involved in the replacement of the water pipes. Their enthusiasm is not welcomed. They get banished indoors. The morose lads pick cherries in the orchard.



The European parliamentary elections on Sunday. The first poster appears on the notice board outside the town hall. A rather stern looking man glares out over an untranslatable slogan that says 'liste antiremplaciste'. Closer scrutiny seems to suggest that the stern man is against everything. His website is succinctly captioned '' le-non.fr ". No. Short, sweet and nihilist.

  2. Was that a very very early morning (or late night) walk where you saw the badgers, or do badgers of France profonde keep different hours to those in the suburbs of Nottingham?

    1. The PON's have an enthusiastic attitude to life that has their owner out and about before six.

  3. Happiness is not a house bound PON. Torrential rain kept Merlin indoors yesterday. He sulked all day. He could win medals for his efforts.
    Muddy walk imminent, followed by the necessary bath thereafter, along with, no doubt, another oscar winning performance.
    I hope the banshee has been banished?
    The gentleman on the poster, barring the costume, rather has the look of a Tudor cardinal.
    Have a great day.

  8. When the house was chosen, did you ever think the upper hall would be such a vital space?
