Jumping cows. Soft food.
First light. The ' bad ' farmer rumbles down the lane with a large bale of straw for the two cows. They scamper across the field after him . Not every day you see cows jumping with joy. They tuck in lustily. He seems to be looking after them well. Possibly too well.
Late down to the bakers. By eight o'clock the shelves almost bare. The remaining selection of cakes appetizing but unadventurous. Two lemon meringue pies bought for lunch. A large slab of chocolate with red ' buttons ' is considered but rejected. 'The font' has to return to London for two days of root canal treatment . As a consequence ' hard ' food is off limits. Pasta for lunch and dinner.
The electrician phones to say he's found the problem with the upstairs dishwasher. '' It's your interruptor ". Angus has no idea what an 'interruptor' is but thinks it sounds plausible. The electrician promises faithfully to bring it back next week.
