This morning I have been preparing rooms and making up beds for my imminent visitors. Kat flies into Bergerac from Bristol on Thursday and Sarah arrives in Toulouse on Sunday via Abu Dhabi and Paris. The weather has suddenly turned cooler so I have put warm duvets and quilts on the beds. Hopefully we will still have some warm days in September but I suspect the nights will stay cool.

Paul is in charge of food today and while I’ve been playing chamber maid he has prepared a pizza from scratch for lunch. I’m trying to cut down on my food portions because I want to avoid putting on weight while I’m unable to cycle or hike but it’s so hard. Rick is quite a dainty eater which surprises me because most dogs like to wolf down their food as soon as their bowl is put down. Sometimes he seems reluctant to approach his food but I have discovered that if I sprinkle some imaginary fairy dust from an empty bottle over his bowl he immediately tucks into his dinner. Hey, don’t knock it if it works!
