Much to Wilfs delight a constant stream of visitors to the house. The joiner came to say he'd start work again on Monday. He was followed by Aude, the chain smoking, bi-polar, decaratrice. She'll also be starting on Monday. Then the lunatic curtain lady returned. At this point Wilf and yours truly opted for a long slow amble across the fields. We came home to find ' the font ' chatting to the landscape gardeners . Guess what ? They also plan to start work on Monday. All we need now is the plumber, the gutter repair man, and a bee expert.
There's something about cold weather that tweaks Wilfs Polish DNA. Its minus 6, the ground is coated with a hard frost and Mr.Affable is in his element. On our morning walk we have to stop every ten yards or so while he rolls and thrashes around, indecorously, on his back. Pure unadulterated joy. No sign of self conciousness in this old fellow. Wilfs attitude : " You can't have a better tomorrow if you're thinking about yesterday all the time ".
