MG went off to Belle Meres in Provence this morning as tomorrow she is moving into her new abode so he has gone armed with his tool box, ready to hang pictures, move furniture, lift heavy objects and do anything else you can think of to assist the moving in process. Crusoe and I are home alone and the weather has turned thundery; grey skies and constant drizzle, we are both feeling a bit flat.
I think I am going to cheer myself up by assuming the recovery position on the sofa to watch something feelgood, I will give Crusoe a pigs ear to nibble on, so that should sort him out.
Tomorrow, I am going to be busy again, I am off to the UK on Wednesday for a week, so I will have to start preparing, I am really looking forward to it, a few days in Yorkshire to visit friends and family, then I am taking my Mother off to London for two day's for a much needed city hit, The Grace Kelly exhibition at the V&A, A visit to Leighton House Museum, Afternoon tea at The Wolsely and a trip to Liberty's are all on the agenda.
Crusoe is also going on a short break. MG does not return until Friday, so he is going to stay with Mattie and Douglas his bosom border Collie buddies, their owners, close friends of ours, are into very long walks, so he will have lot's of fun.
I leave you with the spoils of all our hard work in the garden.
