Lambie was very depressed this morning. He hates the flies – they are everywhere outside at the moment and driving him mad. He follows me around with his head on the ground becoming increasingly agitated.
I hate seeing Lambie like this so, once OH has left for work, I let Lambie indoors to get some peace and quiet.
He was very tired. We had also been for our usual walk and he ran all the way home. He slept for a long time.
After lunch the breeze increased a little and the flies were less bothersome so we all sat outside.
Not a bad view from our picnic table.
We had some visitors and I duly showed them around introducing them to everyone here at Thordale and then onto the Minion’s summer fields where they were duly mugged and loved.
When we got home, I suggested a nice cup of tea and some freshly baked banana and chocolate chip bread. Flossie, our Star Baker, had been working hard in our absence.
Darling Lambie was still mooching around by himself but, once he spotted the banana bread, he got out his Extra, if slightly scarey now I look at the photo, Winning Smile. The one he saves when there is chocolate around!
Lambie was very good and only went round the table begging and smiling. I gave him three ginger biccies but no cake. That was reserved for our visitors. They had earned it.
It was good to see Lambie forget his misery and “work the field”! His depression had lifted and afterwards I went and found him ‘Ster to keep him company. I left them happily grazing together.
He does have a lovely smile! Very toofy! Good cake too.
