Off to the supermarket. Bob takes up his resident guardian spot in the back of the 'Loonj'. The dog car is now reaching the stage where white PON hairs are permanently entwined into the boot carpet.
The supermarkets festive taxidermy display has been taken down. The tableaux of stuffed wildlife eating other stuffed wildlife consigned to a store room. The Japanese ladies on the Sushi counter have returned. Where they go to in December and the early part of January a mystery.
The cakes on display in the bakers clearly indicating that the locals are still working off the excesses of the Christmas season.
A major milestone on the road to recovery. Sophie gets walked onto the village green. Her harness attached to a lead in case she gets any ideas of chasing a cat or a white van.
