Well we’re all home. It was a long day in the car, but despite the rain it wasn’t a bad journey. Mum insisted we listened to an audio book and then got annoyed when I wanted to talk to her instead. We stopped for me to have lunch and a quick walk at the airfield and then went to collect the others. Ari and Shadow were so pleased to see Mum and me of course. We even managed to buy fuel at one of the service stations on the way home, so that was one worry less.
Loving the garden
When we arrived, I took the others out and showed them the garden. They love it as much as I do. I ran around with Ari, while Shadow stayed closer to Mum. We went up through the orchard and then round the back of the pond. It was great fun to have them here at last. I’ve found a path through one of the flower beds that is huge fun to run through.
We had to stay inside while Mum showed the fence man what would need doing in the garden, so I couldn’t check him out. Mum was impressed though, so I suppose I’ll have to trust her judgement on that one.
We all sat in the garden room for tea. It was great. I had the best spot on the settee next to Mum, but then Ari tried to climb right up onto where Mum was sitting. It was really funny. Shadow was fed up that there was no room for her, but all of us on a two person settee would have been difficult. We did get a bit wound up when it came to bedtime and we didn’t really know what was happening, but we settled down eventually.
