Millie is getting to show her age - nine! She still has her moments of erratic behaviour, darting about all over the cottage and flying in and out of the back door into the garden but these moments are getting fewer. Also she is beginning to show a little middle-aged spread. I sympathise with her because I'm at the same sort of stage in life myself.
Larry has been busy rug making recently. The rug in the picture is for our dining room. He's done a lot more since the picture was taken. In fact he's reached the half way stage and now he's put it to one side because at last the parts for his new project have arrived. He is going to make a beautiful rug for his daughter, hopefully in time for Christmas. There was a hold up with the canvas. They didn't have the right size so he's had to wait and wait. Now he needs to get a move on to finish the new rug in time for Christmas. He's worked out that if he works on it for three hours every day, he should finish it in time. I'm not so sure it's possible but we'll see.
In the meantime, Millie is looking after this one till he has time to get back to it.
