My regular followers will remember that I have some lovely neighbours who spend 12months - every year - in the sunshine (that counts as 12 if our summer actually IS sunny!!).
The 6 months they spend here has disappeared again because this morning they flew off to the heat of Goa, India, yet again. I have had a lovely time with Val nipping here and there over the summer months and will miss that very much for the next 6.
Here she is on the plane this morning, just before take off.
