Let the festivities begin!

This is following on from yesterday’s Happy Half Year post as our invitation to MOH has been accepted! Hurrah!!

We saw him last in February when we went down for Mum’s funeral and he kindly looked after Maggie for us for the day. We mentioned then about having ‘Christmas’ in July and that he was welcome to join us, especially as I have a pud in the cupboard already with his name on it.

MOH and us go back a long way, 30 years for me and 29 for Hubby.
MOH was married to my best friend when I lived in Bath and kept in touch after she died in 2000. He’s seen us through a lot and been in our corner when the chips and our morale were down. Likewise we have been there for him.

He was over the moon when we included him in the purchase of the boat by asking him to go with Hubby when we had the survey done.  I stayed home dog sitting and preparing an evening meal. We got him at the helm when we took her out for a trip up river, and he visited us a few times afterwards, though conditions weren’t ideal for another.

He’s already visited us here once, so will see some changes.
He’ll be bringing Buddy, so as our spare room is a little cramped for the two of them, we’ll put him up on the sofa bed in the lounge.

Having no TV means we shall have old fashioned entertainment, like walks along the beach, cribbage and scrabble. He likes to go out so there are some places we’ve found locally that we can visit, and if he wants a field trip further afield then one of us will stay home with the dogs if he wants company. We don’t make plans as such, just have ideas on how to spend our time and make sure I’ve got plenty in. Having a new cooker means I can do something other than 2 pan dinners, but I shall have to get some baking dishes as I haven’t got that many! Argh!!!!

For those new to my blog, MOH stands for My Other Husband. We wouldn’t stand a chance as a married couple as we have absolutely nothing in common and are competitive playing games to the extent that it almost comes to blows, but he is more than a friend, he’s family and it will be so good to see him!

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 recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
