2 speed dogs.


A day when nothing happens. No builders, No electricians. No Emmenthal crisps.


Bob and Sophie make their own entertainment. Enthusiastically.


Finally, it's time for a nap. Sophie turns on her back and snores. Bob clambers onto his table.


Last year we tried standard roses at the front door. This year we're trying standard olives.


Within an hour of planting them out the wind's already blown one of them over.

A day that makes you wonder where the time went. Bob and Sophie, with their full on / full off switch,  have no such worries. 2 speed dogs.

Scotland play Ireland and lose..... again . A BBC commentator says it 'was a tournament played by four rugby playing nations plus the the Scots and Italians'. Sigh. This is the last time I'll hear this for another year  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSTa9a77Lp0

  1. Scotland can't even use the 'much lower population' excuse against Ireland. Oh dear.

    1. Who needs new toys when there are old ones hidden strategically round the garden ?

    A wonderful description for dogs - they are either flat out or out flat!
    What's Sophie looking so pleased about in her last photo - has she found a secret cache of Emmenthal crisps?

    1. More likely she's savaged her brother and is feeling happy with herself !

  4. I thought it was a valiant effort by the Scots - they were not lacking as far as attack was concerned, but (Oh dear!) their defensive structures were non est! Do they have a "defence coach"?

  5. It's all about "March Madness" and brackets here in the US where avid NCAA fans delay everything (!!) whether or not they're supposed to be working or even at work.

  6. The olive trees will be beautiful. And, at least there will always be touch rugby...
