It's bitterly cold. At the end of the ridge where the trees peter out the wind hits us full in the face. Bob and Sophie find this invigorating. They roll on their backs, chase invisible things in the drainage ditch and gaze at the eagles hovering over the apple orchards in the valley. They would happily spend all morning in these frigid conditions, tails high, noses twitching, eyes wide. Their master 'encourages ' them home. Bob has one last theatrical 'pounce' on something only he can see.
Back at home Sophie finds her empty yogurt carton and glares at it. One day it will learn to refill itself.
We go to the cafe. The PONs view a trip in the car as a great adventure. Sophie , being the family diva, takes up 65% of the floor space. Bob sits in what's left and and looks out of the back window.
Christmas is officially over. The mayors secretary takes down the two garlands from the yew trees by the war memorial. The length of silver glitter and the two red baubles that she'd attached to the cypress tree blew away in the gales. What took two minutes to put up takes a minute to take down.
When you live in a community of 67 souls it's amazing what there is to record. Bob and Sophie monitor it all. Life is so exciting.
Wonderful television.Why this series was dropped in the US is a mystery to Angus : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a551d9_iZIU
