Forward planning

Tonight sees months and months of
thoughtful forward planning on our part
finally coming to fruition.
While the rest of the world will wake up tomorrow all bleary eyed
and feeling jet lagged after the clocks have shot forward an hour,
the Madwoman will leap from bed, fresh as a daisy.
This is because we have selflessly been getting her into training for tomorrow
by waking her up at 5am every morning.
She should be really grateful to us, but we bet she isn't.
In the meantime, please send any spare turkey morsels you
have going spare to us: Archie has tweaked something in his paw and is
hopping around on three legs looking sorrowful. Laser and homeopathic remedies and
ice packs have been applied, but we have more faith in the miraculous curative effects
of turkey.
Waiting for turkey 
Being bored because
walks are temporarily suspended until Archie is sound again

A bit of education

Yes, we missed posting a blog last week.
We know.
As usual, the blame can be laid firmly at
the feet of the Madwoman, who had failed to tell us
in advance that she has decided that in future
Sundays will be computer-free days.
So, plainly we cannot be held responsible.
We did put the time to good use though:
We took the Madwoman out for a brisk walk.
We spotted a seat that we'd never noticed before 
And yesterday we went to visit the ginger one at Bath.
We stopped along the way for a bit of education.
We are now recovering from car lag, which is a bit like
jet lag only without the jet, or having to travel to other countries.
Although Bath is a bit like another country:
we have noticed that there are lots of hills, but they lack the graceful elegance
of our own local ones. Bath hills are rather lumpy.
And much, much muddier and slippier.

Getting crafty

We've been keeping the Madwoman on her toes recently -
well someone has to, and we never shirk a challenge.
Because we are having lots of therapies at the moment,
including homeopathy with our nice Uncle Chris Day,
and acupuncture and laser with our new Aunty Phillipa,
plus various food additives to keep our tums and brains working properly,
we are apparently running up quite a few bills.
The Madwoman's horse Flash is also doing his bit -
we will be visiting him soon to congratulate him on his efforts.
This means that the Madwoman has been busy
making needlefelt thingummies,
which she hopes to sell to try and pay for some of our bills.
Work in progress on the thingummies
More work in progress.
A bigger table might be handy.
At the same she is busy making papier mache houndies
ready for the Kim's Home auction which will be kicking off 
near the beginning of May.
Naturally we are helping her as she glues and mutters and stabs and screams
(because she spends quite a lot of time stabbing her finger).
We are doing this by keeping out of her way.
That's us.
As always, supremely helpful.
