The Good, The Bad, and The Naughty

I woke up this morning feeling a bit down.
Nothing I can exactly put my finger on, but I was definitely feeling low.
After breakfast, Hubby and I decided to walk the dog into town along the beach.
Walking nearly always makes me feel a bit more human, I suppose getting out into the fresh air helps blow away the blues.
The beach is a wonderful stimulus anyway.
Never the same, it’s always intriguing and awe-inspiring.

It’s hard to believe that less than a week ago everything was white! Today it was such a contrast, warm and pleasant with plenty of walkers with or without dogs.

I dreamt last night that I woke up on December 25th having slept for 20 days. I put that down to pending long journeys, the forecast of more bad weather and the wish to have it all over and done with!

Still, the walk was the Good bit about my title.
The Bad was Maggie being sick on the pavement as we were talking to one of the local PCSOs. I didn’t feel her pull or hear her retch, and it was a passer-by who told me my dog wasn’t well. What a mess, still at least it wasn’t all over the PCSO’s shoes.
I cleared up of course, checked her nose which was nice and cold, and she seemed fine.
I walked her up to some grass but she didn’t want to do anything else so whatever had disagreed with her she’d got rid of.

The Naughty was not only the cooked brunch we had (Maggie had half of her free sausage which she’s managed to keep down) but the tea and cake afterwards.
Well, we were walking back.

Surprisingly I feel better now. Maybe I needed that celestial fix to boost my spirits.

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.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen snow on a beach. Lovely, even if it doesn’t last long. Walking outdoors is always good for a mood change. (It’s why I got rid of my treadmill).

  2. Getting outside makes me feel better. Even on a cold and unpleasant day, just feeling the air on my face has a rejuvenating feeling (though on those really cold days, it’s a quick rejuvenating feeling before I get myself back inside).

    Fresh air really does make one feel better! Glad it worked for you, plus the beach will always make me feel better! 🙂
