We have a 'no dogs' policy in our Senior Citizen's Centre where I work, so he was unceremoniously dumped in the shopping trolley and sat there patiently until his owner had finished her coffee!
This house seems to have been in a state of chaos for ages now. We have said goodbye to our lovely long-term German student, meeting her family and entertaining them with a proper English tea (cucumber sandwiches, scones and cream, the whole hog), at the same time as hosting the hairdresser doing Scary's and her friend's Prom hair!
Said Prom went very well, thank goodness
Then we had the packing for India, including the losing of the passport (which she had taken to the cinema to prove that she was 16 and forgotten about). At this moment Scary should be in Delhi facing an 18 hour bus journey! All with a back pack bigger than she is!
Tomorrow Starfish goes to London for a few days and The Runner and I will be on our own for the first time in sixteen years!
I wish I had some energy left!
