And now we are home

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.

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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
