Double dose.

The weather all over the place. Nearly 30 degrees on Saturday.  Hail and 90 km/h winds on Sunday ( which pretty much did for the newly planted  dahlias and lupins ) . This morning grey and gusty. We're surprised to discover that one of the stone laying workmen is busily at work at 6:30.  We were told they'd be finished on Friday afternoon so this maybe a last minute rush to catch up.

The workman hasn't brought Jaffa Cakes. He is glared at then ignored. The family diva enjoys a brisk start of day walk down the hill followed by a  less brisk walk back up. The dog roses in full bloom after the rain.

Then its off along the motorway to the drive thru bakers. Three cars in front of us this morning. Mask wearing seems to be tapering off again - we seem to be the only people still wearing them . Purchases done Sophie and Angus then head off to a quiet corner of the car park to enjoy their croissant. The girl behind the drive thru window ( who did wear a mask ) was asked for one croissant but, following a conversation with Sophie ( who has yelped with delight ) , she's given us two. Such is the power of PONette mind control. Double curly croissant ends this morning.  Dog and master give this mornings offering a score of 11/10. 


To add to this mega stylish start to our day we then take a long leisurely stroll by the still closed shops. Sophie chases the car park ducks .A chic start ( by village standards ) to our Monday.

Croissants! What a great start to the week! I wonder why those roses are called dog roses? I love single-petal roses, but I haven't heard that name before. Somehow related to dogwood, maybe? The flowers are somewhat similar. Our adventure with the Japanese vaccine appointment this system actually went pretty flawlessly this morning. We logged on at 9 a.m. and had our appointments set by 9:15. I'll be getting my first jab on the 22nd. Meanwhile, it seems the phone systems are crashing, so it appears people are trying to call in for appointments rather than doing it online. Japan is a very low-tech high-tech place.
