Bright and early our visitors arrive fresh off the boat tomorrow morning. The house is immaculate and I have cooked 3 different curries and a very British cake (Mary Berry’s Victoria sponge) – Floss did the icing.
As a reward for all our efforts, and because they must be checked daily, Flossie and I went to see the ladies at Sandness for some time out and relaxation. We deserve this.
(you could eat your bloody supper of the floor if you wanted to – please don’t)
Fivla is looking very well.
Flossie checked her for “wellness”. Fivla is Floss’ childhood pony (ride and drive) so now in my book Fivla is what is known as an SEP – Someone Else’s Problem – Flossie’s!
Lyra is also very “well” or well-rounded.
Lyra has given up her usual Summer feral behaviour, which is always tiresome, and now embraces life and anyone who turns up.
We don’t take carrots so this is a genuine happy-to-see you hug.
The old ladies could be found a little way up the huge field.
Vitamin has put on weight since being released from her enforced diet lifestyle with Fivla.
And I think it suits her. Being on a permanent diet to accompany her best friend, Fivla, has no doubt helped Vitamin but she is allowed to put on weight in the Summer. Everyone else does.
Delia is looking wonderful.
She is an old lady and Summer makes her happy. That is all that matters. She walks very freely and there is no stiffness.
We are all keeping a very close eye on Fivla and her weight.
It is a fine line and I can see that.
Come the winter, Fivla will have nothing extra but the contents of her hill field at Lyradale and she will have to share it with The Minions.
