follow my leader


Daily my brother and I 'walk-about' our new territory.
It must always be that 'She' follows.... (shadow woman).
The lead must ALWAYS be slack...
I must not be disturbed by being followed (even when I go deep under a bush under which She cannot follow!).

.. wherever it may be... I must be free to go..

.. whatever I pause to investigate...


.. or lick...
I am free to do so (harness? pah! I ignore it!)

.. every shrub is our domain.
She must wait as mere onlooker.

the corn in the field running along our garden is golden
Cornwall has welcomed us.
We have Internet access but only just and have to crouch in the corner of the garden to get a sufficiently strong signal (but it IS a signal). Our vision of sitting on the sofa and visiting you all at leisure is to be modified but visit we certainly will because where there is a Will there is a way!

A trip to St Ives last Wednesday. We spent the day there because it was Mr Haven's Birthday!
Coffee at Carbis Bay Hotel and a walk across the cliff into St Ives for lunch and shopping and just to enjoy the beauty of the place.

... a daily walk-about ...

and a full inspection of each and every cupboard almost complete.

ever at ease

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” Gandhi

For the first time, our holiday in Cornwall will not be an Internet black hole because Mrs H believes she has organised it so we can be online!?
If we do go silent it is all her fault (but we love her anyway - 
I am hoping I can live up to expectation - Mrs H x).

We all leave this Sunday.
The dear Haven Seniors and brother Haven (he is not a Monk) will be driving up to stay at our home, enjoying a 'home from home' holiday.

Paws crossed we can join you while we are away.. but if not we will so relish our return.
Love Darcy and his brother Bingley

reach for the stars



.. try it lying down...

sky high yet still grounded

 ... I may not reach them, but I can look up and imagine

What do you mean... a little eye contact would be nice?!
We have snoopervising to do and it doesn't involve you (until dinner time) ...
