Who are these people and what do they want ?
The builders are at the front gate at seven, the gutter men half an hour later. Miracles do happen. '' I said we'd be back when it was dry " says the senior builder with disarming enthusiasm.
After a full-on Marie Antoinette moment ( who are these people and what do they want ? ) Sophie retires to the kitchen. She is suffering a rampant hair day. Bob shepherds the morose lads and their ladders across the courtyard.
Bob also takes the opportunity to cock-a-leg and de-threat the wheelbarrows. Afterwards he looks at me confidently as if to say '' That's shown them. You never know what mischief wheelbarrows can get up to ".
A watchful eye is kept on the trailer parked on the lane outside the front gate.
All in all an impressive display of multi-tasking, PON style.
Finally, brother and sister settle on the lawn. Sophie catches up on her beauty sleep. Bob appears to be awake but his head is nodding and there is a suspicion the 'on' switch isn't fully in the 'on' position.
Sometimes humans fail to recognize how busy and full of responsibility a dogs day can be.
