Yippee! Summer's arrived - at last. The garden is looking lovely, and the air is scented with roses. It has been so nice to walk to the paper shop this weekend in a T shirt instead of a fleece and waterproof. I did however, get a bit melancholic - the river looked so inviting and it was on days like these that Ned took a splash. The sun brought everyone out and people in the village kept stopping to ask where my dog was, which made it worse. And then I was given Blemie's Will by Eugene O'Neil to read (tissues required !). We had Dylan over for tea yesterday - once a small bundle of black fluff, now a bouncy standard poodle with boundless energy, who provided plenty of "dogginess" to fill the gap for an evening.
