Good morning from Sophie . After a brief start of day walk with a slow moving Angus she heads for a restorative nap on the floor by the porch door . We have to walk around her if we want to get outside but at least she's not trailing mud through the house. 'The last wee house before Denmark' has a number of strategically located sacrificial rugs designed to absorb mud and water from getting too far inside.

Sacrificial rugs and 1950's French fashion.
The farm shop has croissants ready to pop into the oven. It is to be hoped that these 'artisanal' ( and artisanally priced ) variants are better than the tasteless ones found in the supermarket frozen food section. They come with no indications of what temperature the oven should be set at to bake them.
The supermarket has hyacinths by the bunch.
'The Font' goes shopping with Sophie and observes that Scottish east coast fashion offerings take their cue from 1950's French movies. St.Andrews maintains clothes shops that sell tweed caps to gentlemen farmers and resolutely impractical Audrey Hepburn clothing for their 'lady wives'. In defiance of progress ( and heated steering wheels ) this is a town where driving gloves can still be found - for those that want them. It is suggested to Angus that a trip to Stockholm for some new clothes might be in order.
