Here are some of the daily doings of Plum and her owner.
But the pleasure is worth the pain, don't you find? I am looking forward to hearing Emma on the Radio Four website later. Perhaps I will be able to make out the sound of you getting depressed in the background. love, Jamesd
You don't imagine I was allowed to go anywhere near the hallowed portals of the BBC? No, I had to stay at home with Radio 4 droning on (probably Gardener's Question Time).But you got one thing right - I do make a very poignant sound when I am depressed. It is a small moan, pitched to cut through the strongest heart strings.Love from Plum

Dear Emma,I know this is Plum"s blog and I usually write to her but this message is for you and you alone. What a super, amazing, wonderful, beautiful and lively drawing this is! Plum practically leaps off the page and into my imagination. Thank you so much for this blog. I just love hearing about Plum's life... And by extension yours. And thank you for sharing with all of us.Ellie
Thank you, Ellie. That is one of the nicest comments ever. It makes all the difference to have you there, responding. It really does. We (Plum and me) are perked up, buoyed up, and encouraged by your words, and the day has a whole new flavour. xx Emma
How well I know that crazy excitement when a key is heard turning in the lock. There is nothing better than when papa comes home (unless maybe he comes home with a saved airline biscuit in his pocket...)
If only that were so. Instead, he brings countless little tiny bars of soap and bottles of shampoo and body lotion and conditioner and ear cleaning things and anything else that is 'free' in his hotel room. Emma and I groan. xx Plum
