I’m really sorry that I haven’t been posting this week. It’s not that I haven’t done things – quite the opposite.

On Monday I took Bobo home and was rewarded by a joyful reunion between him and Alice, his human. They had been apart for getting on for a year and they had a lot of news to catch up on. Alice has become a granny whilst he was away! After a while Bobo suggested very politely that he’d like a little time to himself to get used to being back home so he suggested that Alice and I should go out for lunch – his treat – so we went out and continued talking well into the afternoon.
On Tuesday I went to visit a cousin who is moving to France in the next few weeks. I would find it both difficult and expensive to visit her once she has moved so this visit was very important to both of us. Isn’t it amazing – the muscles in our tongues never seem to get tired no matter how much we talk!
Wednesday was Leicester. I lived there for several years so have quite a few friends there but I was visiting one old friend who sadly has Parkinson’s disease and is finding life trying. I stayed for an hour but didn’t want to overwhelm her. I took a small album of photos of my home which I had made for her. She’s never been here and is now unlikely to do so, so this seemed to go down well. After that a visit to Leicester market, always a treat. It’s the best market I know of and I bought some lovely fabric.
And then home. It had been a delightful short break but home is wonderful! I was shattered but yesterday I conducted a funeral and I’m catching up with everything.
Not the most exciting post I’ve ever written but I need to get blogging again!
