After the dual traumas of their bath and grooming Wilf and Digby decided that yesterday should be a day entirely devoted to rest and recuperation. They dutifully settled down to watch as the recently delivered acanthus plants were carefully set out in the flower borders. When the gardening show became too repetitive or slow one of them would wander over with a ball or a toy - a gentle but persistent reminder that true happiness is found in a game of catch. Their day was only marred by the arrival of Madame Bay who came to give 'Deegbee' and 'Wolfee' belated birthday greetings. One sight of this statuesque, multi-coloured figure heading towards them while making strange trilling noises and they were off. There is a limit to how much excitement a boy can face in a week.
