Hubby had a bad night last night, which resulted in him getting up and dressed in the early hours to make a cup of tea whilst I (and the dog) snuggled down under the duvet, having checked that he was OK. If he wanted to talk about it, then I was there for him.
Disturbing and confusing dreams are plaguing us both, some we can remember, some we can’t, some based on the past, and some things we’d never normally, well, dream of.
He came back to bed at 6.30, just as I was surfacing from my own land of Nodd having dreamt about third party properties and giant pizzas.
I got out, and pushed him into the warmth of the space I’d vacated.
He said ‘Thanks, Love,’ rolled over and was soon snoring gently.
I got dressed to take Maggie out for her first wee.
It was a beautiful morning, a bit on the chilly side so I needed a coat, but clear and fresh.
We walked down the Avenue and I met up with three other dog owners, 2 with black labradors, and one with mixed heritage. All four of our mutts did their deed in various spots in the freshly cut grass in the cut through, then after clearing up and depositing the spoils in the appropriate bin, we all went off in different directions.
Trees are in blossom en route, and I must take the camera next time before it all disappears and the pavements are covered in pink dandruff. Even the alien spaceship tree is in colour, and yesterday when the three of us did the route together, Hubby and I wondered how difficult it was for the home owner to keep it in shape.
I’m not normally a morning person, not being very nice to know until I’ve had my first cuppa (breakfast is optional).
But these past couple of weeks I’ve been awake pretty early to such an extent that I want to get up and out with the dog to enjoy a quiet start to the day.
I suppose part of it is because we’ve been having such glorious weather and Nature’s dawn chorus beats any alarm clock. Most though is because Hubby has been having a lot of pain again lately, so long walks for him are unlikely, whereas I’m happy to do it two or three times a day if we have nothing planned (showers and laundry today).
The new trainers are great, no problems, and I guess I’ve already covered about seven miles.
