A few weeks ago (yes, I suck at blogging on time) I took a brief trip up to Birmingham to visit my parents. I think the last time I was up there was Christmas 2004; I’d missed out last Christmas because of work committments, and I was under a lot of pressure to make the trip in the break between finishing at Aspective and starting at Venda.
It was a largely uneventful trip but I did get to meet Chalky, my father’s new greyhound. Like most greyhounds he enjoys nothing more than somewhere to lounge about sleeping, but I was surprised by just how placid he is. He didn’t even get up to greet me for about an hour! Isn’t he a cutie?
