Belated Happy Easter from tropical England. We had a houseful of visitors including Blackberry the cat, who made it clear with tooth and claw that he did not wish to meet a dog, ever. So Blackberry stayed in the front part of the house and garden, while Otto kept to the back, his usual domain. It's possible that Otto is thinking of a career as a builder's mate as he's keen on bricks, logs and flints which he piles up in a heap on the lawn. Better than chewing the door frames, I suppose. He was also keen on retrieving pingpong balls unfortunately. Meanwhile, lying in the sun on the front porch, Blackberry kept aloof from all the sports, human and animal.
Smiled a lot while reading The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett, a short novel about what happened when the Queen suddenly became a keen reader. Here's an excellent Guardian review. A suitable book for the Kindle as it is subtly amusing rather than complicated. Do read it.
