Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Mummy is grumbling about the weather. It has been very wet and warm, which is great for the grass growing but lousy for her roses. They need hot sunny days to flower and all this rain is making them soggy and droopy. Me and Nellie really don’t care about mummy’s roses. We are more interested in being allowed inside to snooze of the cool tiled floor and carry out our kitchen inspections without interruption. Mummy says this wet weather is making it difficult to get washing dry. She says she has had towels out of the line for days on end, awaiting to get dry. Mummy and Daddy are going out to the Royal Agricultural show over in Feilding this afternoon. Mummy says when she was a little girl, going to the agricultural show was the high-light of the year. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in the land.
