A month on....

Greetings and apologies for silence for the last week or so. I somehow managed to obtain a very painful shoulder which stopped me from functioning properly. However, it is now on the mend so normal service resuming, to my great relief.

It didn’t stop me enjoying my birthday which was full of dear friends, lovely walks, sunshine (in between torrential showers) and good food. What more can you want?!

I now have a lot of catching up to do, but sent my novel off to an agent this morning (gulp) and need to get going again on the Daphne du Maurier book which has been somewhat neglected due to ill health and appalling weather.

I’ve just come back from a good blowy walk at Trelissick Woodlands - we actually escaped rain again today as well which was a bonus!

Above is the most wonderful picture that my good friend Carol did of Moll (scanning it doesn't n early do it justice). It is entitled MOLL IS NOT AMUSED and is of Moll as Queen Victoria looking really pissed off, which she does sometimes, when Carol’s dog Pilot is being Extremely Bouncy (he’s only a year old). Whenever I look at this I have to laugh - she has captured Moll’s Piss Off expression so perfectly!

So hope you are all ploughing through germs and wintry weather - at least we have daffodils a plenty, crocuses, and rhododendrons out now as well. The evenings are getting lighter, so spring really is on the way…

Love the picture of MOLL. Dogs are so expressive aren't they? Max gets the same expression when Lizzie is determined that he WILL play with her, whether he wants to or not! Hope you are feeling a lot better now.

That is just brilliant,
I love Moll's expression,
She really is a sweetheart and a great companion
for you,
I.m glad you're up and about again and the sore
shoulder improves.
Love Di xx
and a tickle for HRH aka Molls xx

A lovely picture to treasure. Sorry you have been poorly but, as you say, spring seems to be on its way, so that must lift the spirits.

Addy - yes and today the sun is shining too. Hope you are OK .

Thanks Di - though I have chopped the crown of Moll's head with the scanner!

Kim - yes, improving thanks. Dogs have wonderful expressions dont they? I get the giggles every time I look at that picture!

So sorry to hear you've been ill. But very glad you're back on the mend. Happy belated birthday!
