Before heading out for a walk I tutored Cousin in the art of making oneself handsome just in case we should meet any admirers on the way! So a snuffle here and a brush there meant that I was spruced up ready for my potter. Although pottering is about taking a relaxed attitude to life it is important to not look untidy!
Another part of the Art of Pottering is not to overdo things... we had a little wander up the lane but best not to overdo it! There's always another day to do strenuous things!
