On a freezing morning in January, Roxie and I took my fourth Traveling Tap out for a walk around my brother’s new home in Leatherhead, Surrey. As always, I put her through the wringer. And as always, she obliged. Click here for more of her adventures.
Because I didn’t have time in the city, and when I went to Surrey there was no wi-fi, I could not update my blog on a regular basis. I’ve divided this series of posts into six parts: four parts covering my stay in the UK, a Traveling Tap post and a Stories of Eve post. […]
