A limitless capacity.
This morning is a morning for chasing round and round the oak trees in the garden. Sometimes Bob abruptly reverses direction so that he and his sister tumble over each other. A mass of fur and tails and legs. Bob barks, then Sophie barks, then they both bark together. A limitless, canine capacity to enjoy themselves. There are a times in a dogs life when their owners just have to watch and laugh. Other 'things' can wait.
After the illicit half croissant we wander off to the fishmongers for some tuna ...
.... before stopping off at the bakers. Today it is ' the day of eclairs '. A dozen varieties. Mango and Green Tea for ' The Font ' , Strawberry and cream for me. Slivers of choux pastry for the angelic duo.
No sign of the builders who promised to be here. Late in the afternoon the foreman phones to say they've been delayed but will be here on Monday. Or possibly Wednesday. I remind them him that Aude, the bi-polar decaratrice, will start painting on Tuesday. '' Don't worry. We'll work around her " comes the reply. Sometimes you get a presentiment of looming 'complications'.
