This morning I went for a little stroll with my camera and Lola. Have you met Lola? I don’t believe you have. She’s Daniel’s springer spaniel and comes to work with him every day during the week. If he should be working at weekends, which he doesn’t often, Lola tends to say in bed with Dan’s partner Nicole where it’s warm and she doesn’t have to run about. All went well until she heard something move in the mist, then she was off like a rocket and refused to come back for me. I didn’t even know where she was, but Dan came out and found her, which was just as well as she was off to the vets at 10 am for a booster. She’s only a year old and a springer so she’s a little bit barmy. I think she went off to play with the sheep that are currently keeping our grass down for the winter. They aren’t ours and as ‘luck’ would have it (bad luck more like) the farmer they belong to turned up at the same time, but fortunately she wasn’t actually worrying the sheep, just playing so he didn’t mind too much. I shan’t be wandering off with her again though if she won’t come back when she’s called.
It was a glorious morning.
The starlings were all ready for the day!
The shopping expedition went well and presents were bought so it looks like I’m almost there. If I get a chance tomorrow I may even put up the tree and then Christmas will really have arrived!
