The summer torpor has arrived. Nothing stirs in the village.
At The Rickety Old Farmhouse Bob sits at the front door paws out in the sun, rump in the shade.
By late morning even the frogs have given up their battle with the heat and opted for sleep on the water lilly leaves.
Fresh almonds make an appearance in the greengrocer as does ..
A package arrives. A roll of muslin for the kitchen. It comes in a box and a mass of plastic bubble wrap. Who ever knew muslin needed bubble wrap to protect it ? The PONs spend a happy fifteen minutes bursting the bubble wrap. Bob pounces. Sophie takes it between her paws and bites until it bursts with a very satisfying 'pop' . Different styles. Different characters.
For the PONs the arrival of the bubble wrap has turned this from a good day into the best day ever.
