Just gone six and the morning sky aglow with orange and reds. A shepherds warning that storms are on their way ?
Eagle eyed bloggers will note that the family diva has had a summer cut. Home trimming is much less stressful for owner and diva than a trip to the groomers. I tell Sophie that the 'informal' look is all the rage. She is also told that there were no deaths from Covid in the UK yesterday. Now, that's good news.
This mornings croissant looks the part but is 'underwhelming'. I'm guessing croissant quality may bear a direct relationship to how recently it's left the oven. This one has been on display for a good couple of hours and has lost it's joie de vivre. Sophie disagrees - she smacks her lips when presented with two croissant ends. She also emits some very loud snorts. The PONettes ultimate seal of approval.
There is a brief shower as we're finishing off the croissant. Dog and master scurry back to the warmth of the car. We're in the little Volvo today. The big Volvo is having problems. Having downloaded and transmitted the diagnostics Angus has made no less than 14 ( yes, that is fourteen ) calls to the dealer to find out why it's playing up. No response. 'The service manager will definitely call you back today' becoming irksome. 'The Font' wonders if ( after the ten week dispute with the little Volvo ) we've been put on a corporate data base that flashes up a sign that says ' Grumpy customer. AVOID ! '. Angus thinks it more likely that it's just abysmal after sales service.
We stop off at the hardware store to have glass cut for the terrace lanterns that were delivered with broken panes. While we wait there's time to explore the aisles. Paint colours in French stores are very different from those you find in Scotland.
