I’ve taken up Pigeon Spotting again!!

Ok I may be a bit slow to understand human ways but I asked her why on earth would I want one of those in this heat and was she having a laugh! She explained she will fill it with cold water and pop it in the fridge. Then when it’s my bedtime she will put in on my bed right next to me. I wish we had a swimming pool. Or even a paddling pool but I have been putting my head under the watering can when the plants are given a much needed drink. Although I am not a foot person, in desperation I have also tried unsuccessfully to get part of me into the washing up bowl filled with water that mistress has taken into our garden to put her feet in to chill.
