Sounds like a lovely time. I've been out romping in the woods with the pup. She's growing like a weed at the moment. I can see her turfing us out of bed soon. She's not doing too bad though. Her recall is improving all the time.
That's great. I knew you'd sold in Cheshire because you had to move in a hurry. I lost track a bit after that. Good news about the retirement plan. As an 80s tv character once said (with a cigar in his mouth) 'I love it when a plan comes together'.
