'The Font' heads off to the local dog sanctuary with a collection of blankets, sheets, towels, 'treats' and a cheque. The cheque is how much we've saved by eating at home since Angus has been recuperating. Angus is rather surprised to see the total. ' It includes wine ' I'm told. The staff at the sanctuary are happy.
While 'The Font' is away a group of whistling workmen arrive and assemble three DIY reindeer on the village green. Some of the the trees that have been blown down in the recent gales are being recycled as seasonal art installations. Municipal good cheer.
The reindeer have a certain minimalist chic.
At the end of a long day Sophie decides that the sensible thing to do is switch off. Sophie knows how to turn 'switching off ' into an art form.
