Sophie starts her day with a shriek. This is of the ' I need to go out NOW !!' variety. Some mornings the shriek is at 6:35, others at 6:40. This morning it's at 6:43 and coincides with a tractor rolling along the lane.
To make sure I've got the message that it's time to get the day started Sophie scurries upstairs and stares at me as I lace up my shoes.
The family PONette finds something intriguing under a hall chair. Whatever it is commands her total attention.Our departure is delayed while she determines whether the find is , or isn't , edible. Turns out to be a small stone. Better luck tomorrow ?
We head off along the lane at high speed, stopping en route to say hello to the geese, the goats, the donkeys and the horses. Sophie stands in front of me when greeting the geese, goats and donkeys but she moves to a safer position behind my legs as we pass the horses. Horse greeting was something her big brother used to do and she's not entirely convinced it's a good idea.
At the supermarket the decorative Santas are in chic grey. Don't think I've ever seen grey clad Santas before. Angus conjures up an image of a Hanjing Christmas decoration factory that has had a shipment of grey material sent to it by mistake .
The supermarket also has blue wine. Bottled in Spain. 'The Blue Eyes of Lola'. There can be little doubting this appeals to a wine demographic other than Angus. Presumably it's white wine dyed. What would you drink it with ?
