Weak eyes are fondest of glittering objects.

London wet and miserable. On the way back Tony Blair's former press secretary seen sitting on the floor of the airport being stared at by a quizzical and unblinking French child.

Bob and Sophie have been enjoying themselves. The lure of the compost heap  proving to be irresistible. They've excavated a hole between the fence posts and squeezed under it. ' The font ' is confronted by two grass stained, green, mouths full of silage, monsters. An inverted wheelbarrow is placed over the hole. The little angels are washed.

In the afternoon Bob and Sophie return to enacting the great escape.  'The font' finds two, by now completely black, beasts. Bob has learnt to bounce off the wheelbarrow, land on the fence, flatten it with his weight and then allow his little sister to walk over him into forbidden territory. They are washed again.

At the airport Bob can be seen contentedly activating the motion sensor on the sliding doors that lead into the arrivals hall. Sophie is asleep. Angus asks if, in his absence, the little angels have been well behaved. He gets that recognizable ' what do you think ?' look.

Today will be spent trying to devise a fence around the compost heap that is PON proof.


  1. Looks like similar weather to that I encountered on a trip to London last Friday. Moderate rainfall enough excuse for the flight from Heathrow back to Aberdeen to be delayed over a hour. At least I didn't have to wait for hat boxes...
    I'm sure Bob and Sophie will calm down a bit in a couple of years.
    Cheers, Gail.

  2. We're thinking a brick structure around the compost pile--perhaps a tall, brick structure.

    1. That plus watchtowers, a minefield and an electrified fence might do the trick.

  3. I had a similar soggy trip from Stansted to Rodez yesterday. But this time at least I landed at the correct airport which is more than I can say for my flight to the UK last week. I was met at the airport by a smiling collection of bobbles, mud and fluff with four paws that answered to the name of Merlin but it cannot be the same beautifully groomed, sweet smelling PON that I left behind 5 days ago.
    How nice to see Mr Campbell in something other than a scary suit.

  4. "Bob has learnt to bounce off the wheelbarrow, land on the fence, flatten it with his weight and then allow his little sister to walk over him into forbidden territory."
    That in itself is as comical as it gets. The two angels are a tag team....I love them more every day.
    Thanks for my LOUD morning laugh today....

  5. PON proof enclosure? Don't forget to apply for the patent.

  6. Hmm...looks like you have a couple of Willful angels on your hands! ;)

  7. Can anything be PON proof?
    I have my doubts.

  8. Rupiec says Good Luck with that Angus.

  9. Perhaps you could purchase an extra pool cover to go over the heap?

  10. We are wondering how that PON proof was working for you ???
