7:00 am and it's quite clear the PONs are expecting to be entertained.
Bob finds 'Lamb on a Rope' under the shrubs by the far gate. This keeps him occupied for all of two minutes. His sister then announces that she wants to join him in savaging it. The village noise level increases exponentially. Angus is finally cajoled into a full fifteen uninterrupted minutes of playing throw. Sophie shrieks with delight.
Angus takes the top cover off the pool. It then starts to rain. Sophie sits and watches.
The roses are pruned. It starts to rain more heavily. This year the roses have been under planted with sixty lavenders. So far there hasn't been enough sun to make them grow. There has however been more than enough rain to make sure the lavenders are well watered in.
Having made phone calls to men in dark suits Angus wonders what to do with his day now that it's raining. He opts to start painting the dark bookcase in the dining room grey. This requires sanding, applying undercoat and a sense of balance when standing on the top of the step ladder trying to reach those out of the way places. It's always at this point that 'The Font' opts to call for a chat. After two hours he is rather disillusioned with the lack of progress. He's also not sure about the colour. Bob watches on with a look on his face that says '' You'll need at least three coats on that ".
Various messages come through to reassure me that the missing sofa, lost Danish chairs and delayed carpets will make it to Scotland . The art work is en route from Edinburgh. The table and glassware that the suppliers swore would be delivered has magically become '' out of stock ".
