Blue sponge ?
As soon as he hears Angus stir, Bob races up the stairs and sits outside the bedroom door. He makes it clear he's waiting to start his day.
Ten seconds later his sister joins him. She also makes it quite clear valuable time is being wasted.
There's been the most almighty storm overnight. Thunder and hundred mile an hour winds. Bob and Sophie being of good farm stock sleep through it all. Angus wakes when a large branch from one of the old oaks comes crashing down on the barn roof.
Around ten Angus remembers it's Valentines Day. A trip into town with the family fellow. We are torn between a blue sponge made with Armagnac or a chocolate praline concoction decorated with a large orange marzipan heart.
Bob is keen on the blue sponge but we finally opt for the chocolate praline concoction.
Just another of those quiet days. Too uneventful for a diary but too peppered with laughter to be totally forgotten.
