In Devon on a mac
I'm currently in Devon, with the family and RTL. We're staying in Georgeham, just down the road from Croyde where we stayed last October, and it's a fabulous place. Unfortunately, the weather is decidedly mixed, but there's still plenty of fun to be had walking on beaches and generally doing outdoorish things. Fiona's sister and their family live here, so it's good to be able to catch up with them. An added bonus is that RTL has found a soulmate: Fiona's sister's dog, Holly, who's a lot smaller (she's a terrier), but seems to love rough and tumble with the bigger clumsier RTL (both pictured above).
One complication is that RTL is on heat, and bleeding a bit, so we have a special pair of dog knickers that we need to apply when she's in the white-carpeted rental house. Because it's a bungalow, RTL has decided that she'd like to sleep with Fiona and I in our bed. Hmmm.
Wine? We've had some, most memorably a deliciously mature 1999 Montus Madiran. It's still got some distance to go, but it's drinking really well now.
This post has taken longer to write because I'm doing it on a very flash Mac - and this, unbelievably, is the first time I've used one of these!
