Oscar winners have a list of thank yous as long as their arm but I’ve really only one for the moment and that is to http://annegoodwin.weebly.com/ a friend I made at Arvon some years ago now and whose increasingly confident and always enjoyable blog is one major reason, probably the major reason, I’ve have tried my hand at this blogging lark. So ta everso Anne. We must do another walk in your lovely Peak District this summer.

As Harry cleared up, Sally rubbed Milton’s head. “Cute dog.”
