My left foot

Things have a habit of going missing when you share a house with Bernese Mountain Dogs and Heidi (the ghost that hides things) Today I was struggling to find my left wellington, an essential when there is a lake of mud around the cottage. Making do with my beautiful and oh so patient wife's pair (several sizes too small) I set off around the Bonsai mountain on a recce to find suitable hiding places for "treasure" for our planned first annual Bernese Mountain Dog treasure hunt next summer. I explored a new section of the ridge, found several suitable locations within easy reach of an air ambulance and in The Cauldron found this item filling with rain water. One of the usual suspects can be seen leaving the scene of the crime.

We have a Heidi as well. It must be that because I don't have dogs to blame.

Mind you, next year I really want to get some chickens, so I'm sure they will hide things.
