Oh good grief. Just had to evict a huuuuuge spider from the bedroom. Luckily it fit in the spider vac tube – just. Still, progress; time was I would have left the house and gone to sleep at my parents’ place. Can’t do that now; at least I feel I have to be brave for the puppy!

I look at this bundle off fluff and can’t believe how lucky I am to have her in my life, particularly at the moment, when she’s all I’ve got!

All the foliage us looking nice and green, after a few days of rain. Today’s walk was along the “main road” (I live in one of the few counties in the UK which don’t have a motorway, though we do have some dual carriageways).



Then along a track



And back towards civilisation.
