We spend at least half an hour with her, the weather has been so good that after we've topped up the feeder and watered the greenhouse we've generally sat out in the garden, enjoying someone else's planting ideas and a different view of the hills.Sometimes we've put the cat food outside and and wished we'd a glass of white wine to enjoy in the early evening sunshine as we watch Peaches enjoy her picnic. There's always some serious fussing to be done, a chasing game, tummy tickles and best of all chin rubs. K and S are home today so our duties are finished, we shall miss our walks, seeing their garden progress and nuzzling Peaches' soft sun warmed fur, lets hope they have more holidays planned soon.

Our friends K and S have been on holiday for 10 days so once again we have been feeding the delightful Peaches. She does have an automatic feeder that dispenses five portions of dried food over 2.5 days but we still visit her each evening. We've made a little ritual of preparing dinner then strolling together up the back lane towards the hills and Peaches lovely little cottage. She is always pleased to see us and comes running to the window or round from the garden as soon as we arrive, generally crying that the feeder hasn't opened and she needs food immediately, but that's never true.
