I needn't have been anxious about Carol and Rob looking after Ziggy today. Everything has gone swimmingly :) Carol arrived exactly when she said, at a quick glance she agreed with Dav es assessment. Rob mailed me to confirm this, and Carols returning Ziggy tomorrow, and all they want is the cost of diesel. Although Robs been in touch to ask if I want the front bald tyres replacing as they are balder than they are supposed to be???? I would have been riding on inner tubes before I'd have noticed :)
It is a happy house, because we are looking after a lurcher dog called Robbie, who'll look like a sausage dog, by the end of 2 weeks. He's been out for 6 walks already.
