My Apologies

It’s been a long day having had another restless night and being on the road since 9 am.
I took over the driving after just half an hour as Hubby started to have serious pain in his legs and was unable to drive.

He had hoped that after an hour, the pain would subside, but it didn’t, so he had to take one of his megga bombs. However, this can affect his judgement and so he doesn’t drive when he’s had one.
I have therefore had five hours behind the wheel (with potty breaks for us and Maggie) on the way to MOH. It’s the longest time and distance I’ve driven for a long time though I must admit I have enjoyed it.

After several cups of tea and something to eat, MOH and I played two games of scrabble to help me relax whilst Hubby was ‘coming down’ off his meds.
They were close games, only 4 points in the first and 80 in the second (I won both).

I have only just got to look at my blog and appreciate your comments and likes today.
I’m afraid I will never be able to catch up with challenges and your posts over the next couple of days, so please forgive me.

It’s Mum’s funeral tomorrow. It will be another long day and I am going with an open mind. MOH is looking after Maggie for us and I will be writing a post on it in the next couple of days. Mum had chosen her hymns and what she wanted for the service. I shall sing my heart out as we celebrate her life.



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.

  1. So sorry for your loss. May she rest in peace. Heartfelt wishes go out to you and yours.

    Will be thinking about you Di (and Paul). Glad you posted this update. DM

  3. Michael says:

    Sing like you’ve never sung before Di. Give her the send off she’d be proud of, if not somewhat embarrassed by all the fuss. Best wishes for the day.

    Take care. We’ll be thinking of you all. 🙂

    You will be in my thoughts & prayers.
    As per leg pain, is this a burning pain down the back of his legs? If so, inversion therapy helped mine (L4 was herniated).

    • Thank you Jeanne. Hubby had some serious vein work done on his legs years ago and will always have problems. Sometimes elevation helps, but no two days are the same. He is also prone to DVTs.

  10. The Hook says:

    I’ve been there, old friend, and so you have my condolences and as always, my support and friendship.
    You’ll be drawing on strength you never knew you had over the next few months to get you through.
    But you will get through this.
    Mum will always be with you.
    God bless.
