My new office

I am back in the laundry, actually well, doing the laundry!
Hubby was ill in the night and had to get up at 2am to get to the toilet block.
I let him sleep on this morning, and walked the dog for well over an hour.
She seems to have a favoured place for her ‘poo’ and did plenty of  wees for me.
Mind you I walked her a fair way as I intended to have a shower when I got back, and her being tired would mean she would sleep and Hubby would get a little bit more of a lie in.

To be honest, the day has not started all that well.
The internet is still down and though I can get access here in the laundry, Hubby can’t, so we don’t know what’s going on.
Luckily for us the machine was free to use, but the dryer is in use for at least an hour. Not that we intend to use it as we now go to the launderette to use theirs as it’s hotter and we need less time. It equates to an extra 50p, so for us it’s worth it.

We had a phone call and Hubby had to go back to the boat to check on something.
On the way, he dropped his glasses into the drink. Great. I’m glad to say they are only a cheap pair you can buy over the counter, but they are his reading glasses, and therefore he can’t read anything even if he could access the internet, or use my PC.

Back to my walk:
We have a pigeon tree on the dog walk here. I describe it as that as in amongst the sparse leaves were 21 pigeons, and one solitary crow in the tree next to it. Almost like a King on his throne and his loyal subjects in the cheap seats.
We rarely use the dog walk now as it is still awash with sticky leaves and dog muck, and Maggie seems to refer the avenue route anyway, probably because it’s further.

The avenue has its own fair share of fallen leaves, in fact they are of the maple and sycamore variety too, but she doesn’t seem as bothered here. Maybe I’ve got it wrong and it’s not sap that’s causing her problems (e-ew!)
Anyway, from the avenue, we walked up through a cut through (with doggie bin), along the back road, past the shops, and back down the avenue, then I continued up behind the Theatre in town, past the Blue Cross doggie charity shop, and down by the river.
I walked over the bridge, along by the lock, back up to the main road and home.
As I said, I was out for over an hour. It was a beautiful morning, though I was glad I had my benny hat to keep my ears warm!

As I finish my post, Hubby is taking the laundry up for drying.
I have instructions to check out a BT package on the internet for oh yes, internet access aka mobile broadband. Sometimes I feel my life is going round in circles.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Still having internet problems, that’s too bad, hope Hubby is feeling better now.
