Italy lost. And not just a little bit. :(
We've had a lovely day, though. Mycroft couldn't come, as he finishes school for the summer next Saturday! Where has the year gone?? But he didn't seem to mind too much - I suppose knowing you'll be off school for two whole months will do that for you :)
We had a great walk, although it felt later when we finished than it was because the clouds were ruining our light summer evenings. Still, we didn't get too wet or anything, even though Danger tried to drown me in a river :)
Have a picture of a haystack.
Sherlock: Can I climb it?
Sherlock: Just a BIT?
Sherlock: But it would be easy! I can see a way up!
Lestrade: Can I climb it?
Jo and Lisa are very good with Sherlock - possibly because Jo is as happy to dive into hedges for bugs and root about in the mud for animal tracks as he is. Although she's not the one who has to do the washing... might change when they have one of their own :)
And, on the subject of washing, here are two very clean boys, who were just about to get very, very, dirty... (but also didn't, on this occasion, have to do the washing).
That was just before the really muddy bit started, not long after we'd got the bike and had a little ride to get used to them. After that, you wouldn't have been able to see us - we'd have faded into the background.
