Went to our partner dog club last night, there were so many guest people there I didn't know, that by the time we finished obedience and security work it was almost 10pm. Nemo was not obedient - he had one of his "naughty child" turns, romping around the field with his ball and refusing to come back to me. He has a jaw like a crocodile, once he clamps it shut on a toy I have no chance of getting it out of his mouth until he's ready to let go. He is embarrassing when he does that. At times like this I could cheerfully strangle him ! Having said that, later on he was superb at security work even though he hadn't ever seen that "baddie" before. Charlie also didn't seem bothered by facing a new person, just performed his required exercises perfectly. We did get a pretty heavy rain shower during the evening but it cleared away after about 30 minutes. I always keep a set of dry shoes and clothes in the van just in case, there's nothing worse than driving home in soggy shoes.
Yes Mel - there are lots of nice things about retirement, you can choose what to do when, no pressure. no stress, and if you don't feel like doing much today you don't have to. Now where's my paint brush? Want to put a new coat on the garden gate before it rains again.
Me too TE - what did they think they were doing? I can't believe they hadn't seen what that Iceland long throw could do - after all, the Icelandic team used it throughout their progress through the rounds.
Interesting to read that Brexit is not a done deal until a bill comes before Parliament for discussion. If the bill fails to be passed into law then we can't leave the EU anyway, even with invoking article 50. What a mess this all is.
Columba, glad you enjoyed your Midnight Sun race. Maybe one day I will still get to do it. I am now up to 10km slow jog and walk, recovery continuing. I am so glad to be running again (sort of !) and it doesn't seem to be causing me any problems so I shall continue to slowly increase distance and tempo.
