As a lot of my readers will know, I love to take photographs and have done since I was 14.

Tonight I would usually take Mazikeen out to training classes, I decided I did not want to go, although guilt slipped in for a moment. Lately, in the class, I think Mazikeen is bored too as the last few weeks she has starts playing up and ignores instructions.
