After the Storm

Happens to be a fantastic song by Mumford and Sons, but that's not what
I actually had in mind.

After that very damp start to Saturday, got home in time to dry off
quickly and head out again with Nikki to visit the Bearder family. Back
in March of this year, they adopted a pup we'd been fostering, the
lovely Bella. She was a gorgeous, adorably little scamp, with an
effervescent, fearless love of life.

The skies were still battleship grey and pouring when we arrived, but as
we sat in their kitchen drinking tea, nattering and laughing at the
antics of the dogs, the clouds broke and the sun came out.

Needless to say, Bella is thriving. Growing like a weed, full of
curiosity and mischief, and completely loved by her new family.

The glorious sunshine held on long into the evening. We headed over to
Dad's for a BBQ with the family. Abandoned the car there. Ate too many
burgers, drank too much beer and walked home through the long, warm
dusky twilight.
