With the dogs of course.
Hubby and MOH have gone to Skegness this morning, leaving me contentedly at home with the dogs. I shall be preparing our evening meal shortly, a nice and simple veg stew.
Maggie has an appointment with the vet this afternoon so we are hoping to get to the bottom of her injury and an Xray has already been booked for tomorrow as she will have to be sedated.
MOH is not one to stay at home. He likes to go out and about with or without the dog.
Bud is quite happy to keep watch should he go out on his own.
When we visit him, we all pile in the car and go off on a jaunt somewhere. A normal twenty minute or half hour journey takes well over an hour as we are shown back streets and distant views of areas we would otherwise not see.
It was interesting two years ago going to the old lock sites as we’d been on the boat just over a year and hadn’t been on the canals yet.
There is another reason for the trip this morning though, and that is fuel.
MOH has about a third of a tank of petrol, and there is no cheap local fuel here, the nearest garage charging at least 6p a litre more than a supermarket.
You could say it sees uneconomical to travel miles to save a few pence per litre when it will cost more than that to get there. I would agree, but as there is more to see in Skegness than here, it kills two birds with one stone sotospeak.
It also gives Hubby some time with male company, and it was quite interesting hearing their very differing views on a variety of subjects last night after our scrabble games.
With the beach just up the road, I’m glad we don’t have to use the car to go for a walk.
It saves us a few bob, which is just as well as we’ll be needing every penny.
Maggie is still resting, but disappointed that she can’t go anywhere other than the garden whilst Bud’s here.
