Cupboard Love – [British] the insincere affection shown by children or animals towards someone who they think will give them something that they want. – Collins Dictionary.
When I arrived at the Minion’s field, I found little ears sticking up over the drystone wall.
I knew what they wanted.
They made it very obvious.
Something to do with the contents of my pocketses.
And so I duly distributed kissing smiley noses as I went (I adore Waffle’s cheesey grin!)
It was the same when I got home too. This time I was collecting the haynets and filling them. I was shouted at by Sóley while I was in the stable. I told her to wait until after lunch – when we put out their second haynet.
Meanwhile, indoors, these two have not stopped all morning. I look on benignly saying things like “they will sleep well tonight”!
Please come back if the film hasn’t loaded – we just have very slow broadband (sorry).
