Being away is great, but so is coming home. This is Gill and me with Pam and John enjoying the sunshine in Turkey. I am back and feeling refreshed, which is just the way it should be. I hope to blog more regular, if only I can be strict with myself. The dag has also been away for three weeks and has come back a very good dog. Gill is even starting to notice that he is getting calmer around the house. He still likes to jump up at people and we still won't leave him alone with Grace, but he is more manageable. Gill has just walked into my office and says she is warming to him. She has been giving him titbits today as she has been cooking in the kitchen. First Sunday in church tomorrow. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone.
