I have escaped onto the computer to do the blog as a tactical avoidance.
Neils' Mum is coming to stay this week and we are trying to clean and tidy the house.
I have the same attitude to cleaning that Ryanair have to their customers. I know it is there but I have absolutely no interest in doing anything that would make life easier. I detest cleaning the shower, and suspect that doing it a tad more frequently than bi-annually (or when it looks really scuzzy or when people are coming) would help matters - but why anyone would want to spend time doing something so boring when there are a million and one more interesting things to do is beyond me...
Anyway, on to more interesting matters. I had a phone call this morning from Dutch Bird - "Put on the Kettle - I'll be with you in five minutes" says she.. turns out she had been to get the bread this morning and chosen a greener method of transport. Ahhhh....
I have been scouring the forums on line (avoiding that housework again) to find a replacement collie for Keith and Margaret. Keith has been pining for another dog since they lost old Tess a while ago, but Margaret was a bit more unsure that she could replace her old friend (well, its not replacing but you know what I mean).
Still when I found an advert that fitted the bill it didn't take too much persuading to get her to consider a new addition and guess what - they ended up rehoming two!!!
Here are Keith and Mags with Belle and Badger
Mags and Badger
Of course as chief instigator I had to go and view the puppies with them, and how I ended up coming home without one is still a mystery to me. They did all have prospective homes which helped, but still, I could have stuffed one in my pocket....
Lastly a short clip of the latest foal at work trying to bend her legs to reach the grass. Not easy when they are so long!!
