Peace like a river.


The wisteria just starting to come into bloom. Spring arrived late but is quickly turning to summer.



Both PONs enjoy their illicit half croissant at the cafe under the arcades. Bob gives the waitress one of his  'I just want to say I love you ' licks of gratitude. This is a bracing start to her day.


At the garden centre what appears to be a hammock bed shrouded in a zip up mosquito net. There's barely any room for the bed to swing so can it really be a hammock ? 


Sophie remains attached to her latest doo-doo. The two previous toy lambs have been carefully hidden in the garden. So carefully hidden that Sophie can't find them again. This one she's determined to keep by her side at all times.


Sophie won't let Bob anywhere near her lamb. This doesn't stop Bob trying. In the evening we have a long game of touch rugby / savage my brother in the upstairs hallway. Finally, they fall asleep. Peace settles over The Rickety Old Farmhouse. 

Another day with two Polish Sheepdogs in robust good health and boundless energy.

    That's a lovely photo of Sophie and her doo-doo. Maybe if she stopped savaging Bob for a while and spoke nicely to him, he'd find the other two she's so carefully hidden?

  4. Perhaps the mosquito net shrouded hammock is for those nights spent sleeping out under the stars ? Saves on the repellent !
    Bob's morning kiss - a lovely way for the waitress to start her week...

  5. Sophie really is a beauty.
    Love your wisteria. Not many if those fine old vines left. New owners seem to pull them off the houses.
