Unlike the New Year’s Eve fireworks I was unprepared for this mornings thunder and lightning. I was jolted out of sleep by a clap of thunder that seemed to shake the house to it’s foundations. As the lightning illuminated my room I saw poor Herc and Helle cowering next to my bed, quivering with fright and before I was able to give them any words of comfort both dogs had leapt on me and were trying to bury themselves under my duvet. It was rather cramped but pleasantly warm in bed with the three of us waiting for the storm to pass!
