A balancing act.


The two cheese ladies in the market both went into hospital on the same day for their cancer operations. Both were back at work a month later. We alternate our cheese orders between the two. Thankfully, each gives Bob and Sophie tit bits of cheese which makes this balancing act easier. This morning they have a sliver of Cantal and a small dollop of Gorgonzola. Bob gives the cheese lady a look that says ' I love you '. Later in the week the other cheese lady will get the same look.




In the afternoon we head off to the local market town. We've learnt to reverse the car right up against the car park wall. This stops well intentioned passers by from tapping on the window  and saying 'hello doggy'. Tapping on the window while waving your arms about has an 'electrifying' effect on Bob. We can vouch for the strength of the little Skodas rear window.

  6. Mmm...oh to be let loose in a French cheese shop - sheer heaven !
    We hope that you are coping alone 'Font', and the workers are working, and not taking advantage of Angus' absence. Perhaps Madame Bay is on call to help out should the lads get uppity?

    Sophie looks ready to support 'The Font' and do battle with the builders, electricians and Mr Red Trousers, but poor Bob looks quite exhausted - he looks as though he has been dropped from a great height That's a very smart tartan bed, but come on Bob, wakey, wakey, and keep a close eye on those men!
