Yeh but! Yeh but!
I forgot to mention the washing and ironing and the hovering  plus polishing the furniture and  mopping the floors oh! and  brushing the two dogs. I bet i have also forgotten something else important she told me to do.

Well folks!
The boss phoned last night saying she had arrived home safe and well in the Lake District and was fine. The following questions show where i am in the pecking order in our house-
I'm OK she said
how is lucas (the Dog)
how is Gizmo (the Dog)
Have you feed the Cats
How are you.
Must go using mobile phone.
Yep I come last after the two dogs and three cats. All i can say is lucky we ain't got any other pets as i would be lucky to get a mention.

We had some 'friends' come and house sit for us last year to look after the animals, and give themselves a 10 day holiday in France. I left the freezer and the cupboards full of food as well as the basic instructions on how to feed the livestock - donkeys, dogs, cats and chickens. These 'friends' are also donkey, dog and cat owners in the UK, but I found when we got back the animals had received the minimal of care, all of them were hungry, they had not properly moved the electric fencing to allow the donkeys access to more grass -they complained the donkeys broke out one day, I'm not surprised they were probably starving! The house was a tip and reeked of dogs - they had been left shut in all day early morning until about 10 pm the day before we arrived home and I think they had wee'd and poo'd in desperation.

Needless to say we won't be asking them back again!Evil or Very Mad

Hi Again folks.
The last installment of i'm in charge.The love of my life flew back into Limoges from liverpool yesterday.
Got up early Garden looking good grass cut and flowers watered, House clean and hovered and polished and floors mopped. All dogs walked , then fed dogs and cats before leaving. showered changed into glad rags and kicked the tyres and lit the fires on the old Landrover. Left at 0900hrs with bags of time to spare, At Silach on N120 flagged down for road side check by Gandames, all ok set off again just enough time to meet the 1045hrs flight as it arrived.
Got onto A20 at junction 45 all going well then just south of Limoges all traffic comes to a dead stop. Then it was klms of stop-start wall to wall traffic following a traffic accident. At 1100hrs pulls out mobile phone to phone the love of my life and realised i had left my little book with phone numbers in at home!.Spent the next 45minutes counting ambulances, Fire and rescue vehicles go by in the crash lane. Final got going again at 1145hrs passing scene of accident a typical french shunt bags of wreakage and alot of waveing of arms. Arrives at airport and by did i get a rocket ,none of this hi my love glad to see you and a kiss it was rip me head off time.
We travelled back with the love of my life nodding off, as we got to the A20 and headed south it was chocker north bound with slow moving traffic and south of limoges as we got to were the accident had been it was 20Kls of stop start wall to wall traffic.We arrived home and by were the dogs glad to see us. After the inspection( (Just passed i think) and a quick cup of tea it was off to Tulle for me to do the weekly shop.
I slept well last night knowing the love of my life was back safe and well , if not to happy with me.
