A sunny start to the day. While Angus checks the irrigation system Sophie guards the front door.
On our first walk of the day the young cows wander over to see us. Sophie is not overjoyed to see them. Our pace picks up.
Back at The Rickety Old Farmhouse C-A-T is enjoying the warmth of the morning sunshine. C-A-T doesn't seemly overly alarmed by the presence of a ferocious dog in the house. In fact I'd say C-A-T was completely untroubled/ borderline oblivious to my canine companions presence. I don't have the heart to tell Sophie this news.
We're eating inside again. The weather nippy if not cold. Angus opens some wine for lunch. Opening a bottle three hours ahead of time makes all the difference. Sophie monitors me closely in the hope/belief that biscuits must surely be involved. Later this morning, and before lunch, Angus will take the dog car in for its service. I know it's time for a service because the dashboard has a doom laden message telling me how many kilometres I can go before 'attention is required'.
