A Frozen Bean

As I kiss au revoir to The Bean who is flying back to Boston with Two Brains whilst I fly to the UK to spend time with family and friends, it seemed only polite to re-post an early blog from her. Rest assured she is working hard on her transatlantic flying blog. After all when you are a jet-setting Bean it is your duty to share your wisdom with the masses ….

Half Baked In Paradise

I am a dog.  My needs are simple.  Food (not necessarily dog-specific food), a bed (actually three beds – one up, one down and one in the car) and exercise.  In return I give total devotion and protection from the evil cat next door.  Serious  … it might look harmless but it’s actually extremely dangerous which is why I must attack it.

Today I want to tell you about snow.  I did not ask to come to this place (which took what felt like my whole life to get to and, even though I am small, I was squishelled in the car so tightly that to move risked the whole thing bursting on the peage) but I really do like it here.  I get to run around loads, I have discovered that I don’t mind getting wet and I rather like the snow.

Snow is white and it is…

    • She lives with me in France and is about to do her third transatlantic flight back to Boston with my husband – I’m hopping to London for a couple of weeks and she has to fly freight into the UK which she feels is de trop!

    • Thank you Andrew. They say women multitask so heaven knows what went wrong with me! Giving time to family (particularly my elderly mother and the 3 out of 4 daughters of mine in Europe) and working on rewrites of the book seems to leave the blogging plate wobbling precariously. Note to self – must try harder!

      • The third time I took my driving test the examiner told me I reminded him of Wonder Woman. I passed. These days I imagine he would be arrested but back in the naïve seventies I was just thrilled on both counts 🙂

      • I had to take mine twice. The first time I turned left and couldn’t understand why the traffic wasn’t moving. I had pulled in to a line of parked cars. No surprise that I failed.

  10. I look forward to reading The Bean’s experiences! She is becoming a very well travelled dog. Perhaps she should start an advice consultancy for other travelling animals. I’m sure she would much prefer to be with you, though, than in a kennel or even with friends.

    • Work is the greatest and hardest of excuses – we all have to do it but mostly we could do without it! I was in France for a week and then England for two. My husband AND The Bean came to France and then flew back without me whilst I went on to the land of my birth to stay with my mum and three of my daughters (the fourth lives and works in Malaysia). I had a lovely lovely time which kept me away from blogging to my eternal shame and flew back here a week ago. A couple of dramas ensued (back at home my third daughter has dislocated her knee cap for example) and jet lag took a while to shake off but I am back and firing on all four and ready to take on this mess of a house to get it looking hunky doodle dory dandified for the next installment. The best bit of the last 4 weeks? My little dog greeting me at the airport – she was SO happy … I wished I’d had a camera to capture that grin. Small pleasures. Take care my friend and I’m looking forward to reading your lovely posts again 🙂

      • I am so happy for you to have seen your daughters and someday you will get to Malaysia or she will get to YOU! ❤ I love the fact your Mum was there and 3 of the 4 kids. I bet France was pulling on your heartstrings but your husband and the Bean were waiting to give you true love and smiles, too. 🙂 🙂 I will hopefull sound saner next time we chat. I enjoyed this long and personal note. Happy Mother's Day this weekend, enjoy your place and make it a Home. ❤

  14. Hi Bean,
    I have a question for your human. If you don’t mind me asking, other than slowing down, what could I have done to bring Abdul’s life to the forefront of the post? I loved his feel for life and action behind his words. I would of loved to have had a conversation with him.
