One might say it’s a little wet here

The day has dawned drenched in rain, such a contrast to yesterday!
Maggie and I slept in until 7.35, but then she wanted to go out and having had her jabs yesterday, we weren’t taking any chances just in case she had a reaction.
Hubby was far from happy donning the yellow suit to take her, so after I’d washed and dressed, I made sure the boat was warm, clean and tidy with breakfast ready and the kettle on for his return.
radar-mapAs you can see, our part of the country is under a thick band of rain which has been with us for the past 2 hours and according to Accuweather will be with us for at least another two. We are not exactly grounded, but let us just say the boat is going up a bit.

We have two sets of friends who are travelling home today, and do not envy them in the least.
camping us caravanOur couple took their caravan away for the week, planning to split their stay in two areas. Sadly their car broke down and they were recovered to their first site which is where they stayed awaiting the car to be repaired. They were able to hire a courtesy vehicle so were at least able to get out and about and enjoy their surroundings.
Unfortunately they could not get a refund from the other site and are now unable to get in even for one night so are planning to return to the marina a day early.
They have had a good time though as they haven’t been a couple that long, so are enjoying the learning curve of a new relationship. Hubby and I think it’s great.

MSM is also on her way home from a few days away.
We’ve asked if she needs anything brought in but she told us she’ll stop on the way to do a bit of shopping. Since her op, she is still limited as to what and how much she can eat, but is improving all the time. She anticipates being home shortly after midday.

As for us, we aren’t going anywhere.
I’m glad we did some shopping yesterday and have stuff in for our two day stew. This will work out rather well as if the cooker goes on Sunday, it will be takeaways or basic microwave goodies until the new burner is in position. Having to change the worktop means it’s not as straightforward as it sounds as Hubby will have to don his plumbing hat, cap off the gas supply (will be disconnected from the bottle anyway) and do a little bit of 12v rewiring in readiness to moving the fridge.

So I’m sitting here on the bench with the dog asleep at my feet, a cup of tea by my side and have just finished going through my reader. Lots of challenges to get stuck into so there may well be a fair few entries from me again today. Sorry for the inundation.
It’s only 10.30 and both of us are edibly twitchy. Not good, NOT GOOD!
Too early for dinner, but we can prepare it which means raw carrots. I love raw carrots and not just because they are ‘free food’ and ‘speed food’.  Besides, they’re good for you and supposedly help you see in the dark.
There might be something in that as you never see a rabbit with specs do you?
(I know, the old ones are the best)

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.

    The English weather (for me in the Lincs/Hunts/Northants area) was actually one of the reasons why we decided to emigrate! I cannot honestly say that it was the main reason, but it was certainly a factor! 🙂
