A group of Czech pilgrims click-clack down the lane at first light. We know they're Czech pilgrims because a large green Mercedes van with a hand printed sign saying '' Praha - Santiago di Compostella 2014 " slowly follows on behind . The pilgrims make happy cooing noises as they pass . Sophie yelps in frustration . Bob, ever the serious one, sits on his stump seat and stares.
Time to open up the cellar to stow away the pottery bought at the village fair . A stoneware orange juice squeezer ( '' why ever did you buy that ? " ) a collection of floral breakfast cups and a large white ceramic platter are placed next to accumulated earthenware mugs and olive oil bowls. In a thousand years time archaeologists excavating The Rickety Old Farmhouse will have a field day. Bob and Sophie love the cellar. It's dark and full of spiders and supposedly out of bounds. Life when you're an eighteen month old PON is magical.
