Lovely photographs. I really miss having a dog. You can't pat a little cat in quite the same way. (I do try but ours aren't having any of it!)

Isn't it glorious? We had lunch by the river yesterday, unheard of in mid-April. I think the Edinburgh Boy looks as if he is plotting one of his mad escapades in that last picture. I hope you caught up with him.

Nice to hear the weather is finally coming good after the hard winter you've all had
Love the look on the black boy's face - warming his body like an old man lol
Take care

Nice to see some photos of your dogs again. Like "Liz" - your first comment on this post, I am missing having a dog dreadfully but Husband's heart will not be melted.

"..When she needs to rest for a while..." That photo is beautiful!

So sorry about Miss M's OS - it's a cruel disease. I'm glad to hear she's doing well so far!

Love the spray circles!

These made me smile. So glad to see that you too are experiencing such amazing weather.

St James Park is full of tourists and local workers taking their lunch on the lawns. In fact, I felt positively Pymesque with my lunchbox and my newspaper watching the world go by. Today that included a man walking along nonchalantly with a python in his arms...

The Edinburgh Boy looks how I'm feeling about the weather at the moment- just soaking up the sun. Didn't realise I'd missed it so much. Next thing you know we'll all be moaning about being too hot...

Liz - yes, being without a dog means a big gap but cats give you affectionate head butts and can be very comforting!

M - The Edinburgh Boy is surprisingly well behaved when he's out with Miss M. He's taken on a very protective role and rarely lets her out of his sight!

Lindsay, you'll just have to keep reading appealing dog stories to your husband - or take unilateral action . . .

Pam and Cathy - glad you liked the photos, the glorious weather we've been just lends itself to being out and about with a camera.

Jay - Miss M is on a palliative homeopathic regime and this is helping enormously.

Colleen - nothing quite like London's parks when the sun is shining. Great for people watching.

Rattling On - the hotter the better as far as I'm concerned; I can never get enough sun!

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
