A sunny Bank Holiday Monday!

Today was a bit grey to start with, but the weathermen had promised it would brighten up in the afternoon, and it certainly did. We spent the morning doing boring housey-work things, but then set off after lunch towards Henley. Lara fell asleep in the car, so we drove a bit further to let her sleep some more, and found ourselves at Christmas Common, a lovely spot that we've been to a couple of times. It's on the Ridgeway, the chalk ridge that runs through Oxfordshire, amongst many other places.
Here's a lovely photo of Olga and "the kids", and some more have been uploaded in to the "New Uploads" album on the left of the blog.

Jackson was really well behaved, maybe some of it was because he's so young and worried about us leaving him somewhere, but he never went more than 10 metres away from us, and came back everytime when called. He was very popular with other people on the Common, so much so that poor Lara didn't get any attention at all from strangers, which is very unusual.

He was very tired when we got home, and was happy to doze in his pen while Lara had an al-fresco tea on the decking. The weather has stayed warm and clear, so much so that I'm writing this post on the decking by firelight (hence any spelling mishtakes) with a beer.
