An ordinary life....

Shhhhhh...don't tell David!


Today was so warm I had to relocate to the living room as it was the coolest room in the house.  Bliss.

Poor Lola was struggling to settle in the heat and kept moving around the kitchen and lying on down on the cool tiles them moving again to another cool bit five minutes later.  This meant she was only dozing in short bursts rather than having her usual afternoon nap.  She followed me into the living room and lay on the carpet, enjoying the cooler temperature. 

I was so engrossed in completing my Tesco order it was only when I heard her snoring softly that I looked up and realised that at some point she'd sneaked onto one of the sofas where she isn't allowed (garden room yes, living room no) but she looked so peaceful and settled I didn't have the heart to tell her to get off.

She repaid my kindness later by digging up my precious lilac tree that my mum gave me before we moved here.  It's been in a large clay pot for eight years and finally planted it a few weeks ago.  I won't repeat what I said.

Holiday prep in full swing.  I hate this part of it.
