Assieds- toi confortablement.
The weather forecast said it would be a cold,wet day with torrential downpours. It turns out be to be bright and sunny.
A sale of brassicas in the wrought iron market hall. We buy a 5 kilo bag of brussel sprouts. '' Picked this very morning " says the farmer . Some cynics believe the local farmers actually buy their products in the local supermarket, repackage them and sell them on at a profit to gullible foreigners. This I'm sure is expat folklore.
The sun brings out some pilgrims in search of the Holy Well. Sophie greets each and every one. Exhausted having guarded her house and flock, she falls asleep. She snores.
Turkey curry for dinner. The family diva settles in the kitchen to oversee its preparation. People can come and find her if they want. Bob stands at the front door. Every inch the host. A look on his face that says " Assieds-toi confortablement " . What contrasting canine characters.
