Just Another Day

Nope, nothing to do with Jon Secada’s hit from 1992. I bought ‘Angel’ on a cassette years later and this was on the B side, though I think both were considered ‘A’s.
Anyway, today is just another day, except I am one year older and need a bigger extinguisher.
birthday candlesWhen I woke up it was raining.
Not the horrible torrential stuff of a couple of days ago, just a gentle smattering of pattering raindrops on the roof with its unique melody.
Hubby got up and left me to have a lie in (special day and all that).

A good hour’s snooze later and the rain had stopped so he took the dog out.
I stretched and got up, padded about in my bunny slippers and did the usual things every morning brings.
The rain started again, and I thought oops. Hubs is not going to be happy caught out in it, though I knew he’d taken the backpack of waterproofs, so he’d be OK.

I was pleasantly surprised when he got back laden down with breakfast!
And a card.
And flowers.
Also he and the dog were both dry as he’d taken the car to do his shopping and she had performed when requested during a dry bit.

Bacon rolls and latte coffee started the day off brilliantly (and no washing up, yay!!).
The card made me feel young and carefree (he couldn’t find a ’60 minus 1′, so opted for 21 and wrote ‘again’ on the front).
The flowers……. a bunch of ten roses of various colours (payday yesterday) .

And there were more to come:

bluebell wood bluebell wood 2 bluebell wood 3 bluebell wood 4 bluebell wood 5
We walked the same route on The Malverns afterwards, then went for a carvery on the way home (no washing up again, double yay!!).


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.

    Just love those swaths of bluebells!

    • They are fabulous aren’t they. We just came round a corner and there they were. Luckily the lay-by opposite the woods was empty so we were able to stop and take some photos. We weren’t the only ones to do so as four other vehicles followed suit. Hubby says it’s a popular place and he wanted me to see it.
