A Day in the Life of ...

People are sometimes rude enough to ask what we do all day.
We usually tell them to go look at the lilies. 
Like them we toil not, nor do we spin - well, you just try it with paws. Or petals.
But we do manage to be busy.
Here's what we did on just one action-packed day last week.
Awoken at some ungodly hour by The Madwoman
She has no concept of a lazy morning ...

Off to Chiltern Open Air Museum.
A shipwreck on the village pond.
No sign of any icebergs although it was jolly cold.
A dummy (complete with a willy) was our next clue
that something was going on.
Apparently a grownup version of Horrible Histories
was being filmed.
Or possibly a second series of  Inside Number 9.
We think it's about time they remade The Wippitt of the Baskervilles.
Or maybe the Three Wippiteers.

Ah, the catering van.
Although as usual nobody offered us any sossidges even though we could
smell them cooking.

Film crew spotted.
Like the Madwoman, they don't appear to be very competent with a camera

and kept pointing it in the wrong direction.
Watched some actors.
They appeared to have lost the use of their legs when they weren't
actually doing any actoring and had to be driven around everywhere
in cars.  We remember meeting the Horrible History cast back when they were
filming their first series. They were able to walk in those days and were called actors
instead of arteests. Poor darlinks, we did feel sorry for them.
Apparently this was a re-enactment of the Brrrr War.
And it was very brrrr too, so we didn't hang around for long.
Could have done with a lift in one of the arteest's cars,
but no offers were forthcoming.
Went home.
Had a committee meeting about what to do next.
A vote was unanimously carried in favour of catching up on a few zeds ...
More? You want to know more?
Talk to the paw, I'm busy ...
