I am seriously fed up with this awful weather. We came home from Italy all suntanned, relaxed and happy, albeit somewhat jet lagged from the journey, to nothing but rain, cold and shortening days. We are now lighting the fire late afternoon, drawing the curtains before 8 and generally feeling down. One bright spot that eased our return to Scotland was an email we received while we were away, thanks to Mr FF's special Blackberry type device that unfortunately also keeps him in touch with business. It was a request to feed the lovely Peaches for about 10 days when we got home and this beautiful photo was attached. That is exactly where she is when we call round, the minute she hears the garden gate open she bounds to the front window to tell us she is hungry. We haven't been able to sit out in the garden this time, too cold and damp, in fact often its been raining so hard we've driven up to the cottage rather than enjoy our usual early evening walk but we have had lots of fuss and cuddles indoors. So now we've given Peaches back to her family, its still raining and that house in Italy is empty. If only Mr FF didn't have a full time job.
