We set off at 8.30 this morning and arrived home just after 4pm.
We were sensible though, taking three breaks of about half an hour each to get ourselves a cup of tea, plus another two just to get out of the car and walk around a bit to stretch our legs, all eight of them.
It has been an ‘eventful’ few days.
MOH has been a total brick and took a lot of the pressure off by looking after Maggie for us. Funnily enough, we haven’t actually seen much of him as we arrived late on Thursday, had the funeral on Friday, at A&E most of Saturday, our turn to return the favour and dog sit when he went to a concert on Sunday, and yesterday afternoon we were back at the hospital.
We managed to get in a lot of games of Scrabble though, joint scores being some of our best with 7 letter words coming fast and furious, even if we couldn’t always put them down.
In all, we travelled 705 miles, 226 of those from MOH to home today.
All three of us are shattered, so after a light snack and relaxing for a few hours by catching up on our respective blogs trying to unwind, it’s an early night.
Sleep well everyone.
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.

Almost…………. Maggie sleeps behind me and so far Hubby has managed to retain his side!
