We have been busy for the last few days swimming. Yes, it has been a chore but we endured it stoically. Someone has to!
So today, for me and my grotty back, we have had a day of rest. I spent a good few hours with the Minions in the school (catching, grooming, feet and leading) and then in the field where they reciprocated. Yup, they groomed me, chewed my shoes and led me to a spot where they could be hugged some more.
Hammy is a token Minion. He is their mentor – heaven help them and they actually get on very well, which is sweet to see.
I have had many animals over the years but I think I have never been so loved by The Minions. They are the most darling three boys (and Hammy) ever.
Silver, who found getting to know us difficult at first, has made a huge amount of progress. His learning curve is steep but the reward of being loved by him and his friends is probably the best therapy ever (for me).
These guys have given me so much – I may have had gin and feeling very soppy now!
