Sophie starts the day in one of her 'lively' moods.
On our morning walk she has to be harnessed up. The family diva has seen a ginger cat and is keen to give chase. Bob hasn't noticed it.
Off the lead Sophie has a long and muzzle drenching drink from the old zinc bathtub by the village pond.
We sit on the top of the ridge and watch the kestrels dart across the skyline. Sophie has found an apple in the Very Old Farmers orchard. This she jealously guards while taking leisurely bites out of it. She chews noisily to let her brother know that she is in possession of something delectable. As Angus describes the vexed topic of a Palestinian parliament in East Jerusalem, Bob falls asleep. Jared Kushners peace plan will have to wait.
An almost perfect croissant. 9.8/10. The crust ever so slightly burnt but the dough tender and buttery.
Meant to post this last week but still worth listening to. An historical oddity recording the sudden silence at 11am on November 11th 1918. Aural history. Quite remarkable : https://videos.metro.co.uk/video/met/2018/11/07/5965684548800394248/640x360_MP4_5965684548800394248.mp4
