On Saturday, OH and I were honoured with a visit from the lovely Kate, of iRamble.Â Despite a certain lack of confidence in driving herself, this intrepid and determined lady set out on a long and unfamiliar journey with only a lisping sat nav to guide her.Â Unable to determine whether her faulty ‘Susan’* was instructing her to take the ‘firft’ or the ‘fird’ exit at a critical roundabout, she ended up lost in the wilds of the fens and it was only the lightning synapses of a local, (moi), who saved her and guided her safely to our house, where the dust bunnies and unwashed dogs were waiting to greet her.Â Pretty good, considering how many interesting drugs are circulating in my system right now.
As you can see, The Princess was entranced to meet another greyhound person.Â In fact it was quite a while before they were able to enjoy the couch together, because the Princess has a way of blocking the progress of those she likes, by standing firmly in front of them so that they can’t get away but have to stay and pet her, so Kate spent quite a while two feet from the front door, till I took pity on her and called the dog off. Tee hee.
Even my shy and spooky Pirate allowed his grubby self to be fondled and cooed over, which is quite an honour.
Kate is great – she is just as she seems online: bright and sparkly with a certain air of elegant hippydom.Â She’s pretty too – and I love her hair!Â It was so good to see her – we had some fun, and for a few hours I was able to forget the pain and fatigue. She got to see the famous Depp Room (a privilege granted only to the select few), and silently running her gaze around our poster-bedecked hallway, she agreed that, in all probability, I was every bit as insane as she was herself.Â And she got along with OH, too!
Thanks for taking pity on me, Kate!Â And for the cards, gift and chicken stock, too!Â The dogs are already wondering when you’ll be back!
* All sat navs in this house are called ‘Susan’.Â So was the one OH hired in the US.Â Sometimes I wonder about that …
