Yesterday we attended the first Paws in the Park event hosted by and in aid of St Nicholas Hospice. Well as we have discovered there is always a drama to contend with but luckily this time it wasn't me dishing it out, I behaved perfectly (I can when I want to). We had a milk problem (i.e. most of it had gone off) so Paul (a very friendly chap who happens to be very close to Catherine) was dispatched off to find some milk. All this was happening early on Sunday morning, before the shops were open so quite a challenge but Paul rose to the challenge and triumphantly turned up with enough milk for the day so disaster averted. I have to say that the English are very good at diverting potential disaster, we French quite like to get in touch with our Gaelic temperament, which is all part of our charm. Or that could just be me, I quite like to charge around looking busy and authoritative but actually I have no clue what I'm doing (but please don't tell anyone as I like the je ne sais quoi of it all).
More about the actual event though, it was absolutely fantastic. The sun shone, the vibe was great and the dogs were absolutely gorgeous. We thoroughly enjoyed the event and we were so busy. It was rather nice to get so many compliments about my handsomeness (it hasn't gone to my head yet but it may in the future) and the coffee and teas were also a resounding success. As you can see from the picture we also have tables and chairs for people to relax whilst having their drinks and food and they proved very useful throughout the day for all of our customers.
So the day was a resounding success and I just hope that St Nicholas Hospice raised a lot of money for themselves, this is such a good cause and it takes a lot of money to keep it going, I'm very pleased that we went along and supported. Hope you did too!
