The quote on Jenny’s diary page today:
 
‘To get money you must spend it’  : Titus Maccius Plautus 254-184BC, Roman Playwright
 
Obviously no relation of Titus Arsolus or Mick Jagger
 
But first cousin to Speculus Accumulus and Jenny’s dear late mother
 
Wisdom indeed but us Wooffies don’t have to bother about all that.

Got trouble with my ears this morning. Jenny was screaming at Mo Farah on the TV last night , then at Tom Daley. Wow what a result Team GB have had. I’m wagging my tails to bits.

Hi,  Jess Jarvis here –

Enjoying the Olympics? Isn’t Jessica  fab-u-lous. Glad we share a name. Not sure I could cope with the hurdles but I’d love to have a race with her cos I’m pretty fast myself I can tell you. And I know how to BOLT when needed!!!

Andy Murray’s done well too. Warming to him now, especially as he’s a Wooffie  lover.

We’re chuffed. It’s all down to me of course, I’m top dog.

But credit where it’s due the humans have worked well.

Have you stayed here yet?

Not easy to get and not easy to keep but we’ve managed it!

We’re all drowned rats with webbed feet. I blame the government.

 Jenny and I have just back from a walk and jumped straight into the tumble dryer. Actually I prefer the hair dryer really.

But this rain can’t last, can it?  Oh hang on –  it’s Wimbledon coming up. First week will be alright, it doesn’t usually rain,  so if you don’t like tennis  why not cheer yourselves up with a short break down here? We’ve got some great offers on. You could always go on the river – ha ha

I do mix in good company. Besides Andrew, Simon, Ralph who were part of an expectionally talented group recording a CD of Schubert (Jenny is dying to have a copy of that), we also had people who were dancing at a local hotel, and the lovely  Peter and Abigail (they wanted to take me home, you c

More for my fan club

an understand why) who were at a wedding. How’s that for an eclectic mix. Didn’t know a Wooffie like me knew a word like that did you? 

Eveyone of course raving about the breakfasts as usual. They are  award winning!!!

It’s dodge the showers every time I want to go walkies at the moment. I’ve had to have the hair dryer on me yesterday, cos I was so wet. It’s a wonder I haven’t got webbed feet. The swans have of course and they’re more on the bank of the river than in it at the moment. Why do the weather people drone on every day and say the same thing. Be much easier if they just said – remember yesterday – well it’s the same today – full stop. Anyway it’s just as lovely around here when it’s wet as when dry. There’s plenty to do and see. The spring lambs are bouncing around in the fields. The trees are blossoming. Flowers are opening. Who cares about the Levenson enquiry! The only bugs we’ve got around here are in the compost heap.

Jess Ben and Chloe

Lands End here we come

Here’s me saying goodbye to Ben and Chloe this morning.  Thought I was going with them – got my lycra collar on ready! Ben is cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End. (1000 miles) in aid of St. Christopher’s Hospice near Crystal Palace, London. A Friend’s mother was cared for there last year before she died. The hospice needs £8 million a year to survive. Good luck Ben – it was our privelege to meet you and have you and Charlotte stay, and also to meet Chloe this morning as she joins you cycling today . Anyone can support Ben and the hospice via www.virginmoneygiving.com/BenGirling. Go on it’s a really good cause.
