Me Time

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.

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.
