It seems like only yesterday we were opening up for summer.
I’m still enjoying the autumn sunshine and spending as much time as possible
outside in the garden but Paul has got itchy feet. He always gets restless as soon as he has
booked the tickets home. His big concern
this year is calculating how much wine he’s going to be able to fit in the car
as the dog crate will take up most of the back seat. I’ve said that we can
leave all our clothes behind and buy new stuff in the UK, the wine supply is
more important. Rick will have a lot of
gear to fit in too - his bed, favourite blanket, harness, dog food, grooming
kit, tennis balls, doggy treats, collapsible water bowl. It’s like travelling
with a young child.
The months have passed so quickly this year.
Our trip to Spain, a brief return visit to Wiltshire, adopting Rick,
being reunited with our girls here in September, time has whizzed by. We are hoping Sarah will fly back to England
for the Christmas holidays, Kat will get some leave and we will all squeeze into our flat and have a
very merry time. But for now it’s still
October and I’m going to make the most of my house in the sun.
