Thanks to everyone
I best have a big fat chook in the fridge.... and work it and work it SLOWLY.
If I can get a prep run. I will do this, too.
Maybe take the dog with me to my Yoga Studio and get my hubbie to treat him when he accepts the students. -did that way back- worked .... but something happened in betwen and he has become a lot lot louder.
I have never had anybody stay overnite.
And we are certain, my husband will take the dogs out and sleep in my flat at the studio. My friends are dear to my heart but unfortunately got nothing in mind with dogs. Can only get so much of their goodwill.
