Before the heat sets in .
The Bozo Family are here by seven. ' The Font ' wonders if this enthusiasm for early morning starts has something to do with drainage engineers wanting to get their work done before the heat sets in.
What appears to be a large green glass fibre boat is delivered. Monsieur Bozo proudly informs me that this will be the centre of the new filtration system. Tomorrow some 'experts' will be here to install it. Until now Angus had been unaware of the filtration system or the need for 'experts'. Could it be that the new drainage system at The Rickety Old Farmhouse is over engineered ?
More roses are transplanted.
To say Bob and Sophie are happy would be a huge understatement. Excitement, exotic smells and morose lads to throw the heavily chewed starfish. Apart from sausages what more could a PON ask for ?
Sophie wears a look of angelic contentment. Humans find the presence of builders irritating. Dogs find their presence invigorating.
'The Font' attempts to water the transplanted roses but the pipe to the well has been mysteriously 'severed'. Two glasses of Haut Medoc are had with dinner.
