The first really hot morning of the year. The PONs are up and about early.
Bob and Sophie wait in the courtyard while I go to get the car keys. Bob does his best to hide his impatience. Sophie doesn't. She shifts from one foot to the other and stares.
After a slight disagreement between brother and sister over who should sit where, we head off to the bakers.
A ten minute, windows down, drive into the little market town. Sophie recognizes where we've parked and lets out a hearty '' choux pastry crumbs " squeal. Bobs tail beats against the back seat of the car - thwump-thwump-thwump. Life with PONs is a life full of squeaks and squeals and thwumps. They are not a silent breed. We order our cakes. The PONs look angelic and get given some croissant slivers. As all PONs know ' Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity '. It is turning out to be the best day ever.
On our return from the bakers Bob opts for a quick snooze in the shade. Sophie heads to the kitchen in search of 'The Fonts' yogurt pot. The angelic duo have segued into their summer routine.
