Mine, I tell you, mine!

Guess what I saw in the second hand shop yesterday?
In fact I saw 4, but couldn’t see the price, and the shop wasn’t open on Sundays.

MOH arrived safely yesterday afternoon and we spent an enjoyable evening playing scrabble and catching up on the news.
We noticed Maggie was still favouring her foot, not her shoulder, so we got the torch and she let us have a feel around, even though we could tell it was uncomfortable for her.
Hubby felt something, and managed to remove two small pieces of fibre glass from her pad. I then put on some of the foot ointment we have for when she incessantly licks her toes, and she slept like a baby.
She’s still tender this morning, but we are hopeful and intend to keep our appointment tomorrow.

I rang the doctor’s surgery about my blood test results this morning.
It is obviously extremely important they discuss them with me as I can’t have an appointment for nearly three weeks, and even then it’s only with the practice nurse (or one of them).

MOH insisted on treating us to a full english this morning, and as the cafe is opposite the second hand shop…………………………………

We now have four chairs to go with our dining table for the ‘exorbitant’ sum of £15.
That’s for the four, not each, so I am well chuffed having been first through the door to check them out at 10am. We need to sand them down a bit, but they should be a pretty good match.
Getting them home was an interesting exercise though.
Luckily we had both cars as Bud won’t get in ours and three adults and two dogs, one of which has a poorly foot, wouldn’t fit in MOHs. So we shared the load and had two chairs and a dog in each. Hubby was a bit miffed at me because of a slight misunderstanding when I went to get the car in the first place, but I think it was worth it. The guys have gone out for some guy time leaving me here with the dogs.

Spaghetti bolognese for tea tonight, one of my classic two pan dinners. No problem!

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Hope you’ve solved Maggie’s problem and she’ll be enjoying her walks again soon. Great score with those chairs. What is that expression — “It’s the early bird that catches the worm?”

  2. Was what you found in Maggie’s paw new or did the vet miss it? Maybe there’s more there.
