Operation Matryoshka – lead to Lavinia leaving her beloved MI5
The Berkshire Downs Lavinia knows very well having lived not too far away when growing up. When she had to leave MI5 she spent some time looking at properties in the area with a view to buying a new home. Photo (c) Jane Risdon 2018
Nothing restores Lavinia better than a strong cup of tea and a bag of liqourice unless there is alcohol on offer…Photo Jane Risdon 2021
The White Horse at Uffington in The Vale of the White Horse where Lavinia Birdsong decides to move after leaving her beloved London. Born and bred in the countryside not far from here, she prefers city life. She is beginning to adapt to birdsong instead of traffic noise – gradually. Photo Jane Risdon 2018
Molly belongs to Lavinia’s brother Snow and when he needs a dog-sitter Lavinia will have her for him. Molly is not too bright but loveable, even though she has a pedigree.
Lola is Snow’s other dog, snooty and aloof with an air of superiority, she is brighter than Molly but not as affectionate. She has a pedigree too and lets you know it. Lavinia dog-sits both dogs when she is able.
Often teased and bullied by Lola and Molly. Such a wise old cat Simba (c) Jane Risdon 2009
