We have had pops, bangs, whizzes and whooshes for the past half hour, and not only are they are still going strong, but they’re getting louder, so hopefully the grand finale frantic megga whoosh and almighty bang is literally minutes away.
Luckily for us, Maggie so far isn’t too bothered, curled up on her cushion asleep, we think probably a combination of yesterday and the antibiotics. We know some that we take make us sleepy.
I’m rather glad about that as anyone who has a pet that is terrified of this horrendous noise will know how futile it is trying to comfort them as they quiver and shake. You feel helpless and angry that people are so inconsiderate, and sometimes we are real killjoys and pray for rain!
We tried some calming medication but it didn’t work for Maggie, so now we make sure there is a dark place she can hide if she wants to and that she has 100% access to us.
Hubby is watching a film on Youtube and has turned the volume up a little.
Previously, we’d put our DVD ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ on as that is noisy and she’s used to it because we’ve watched it so many times.
This particular display is less than a mile away at the clubhouse down the road.
It’s all very pretty, as we can see the coloured sparks through our closed blinds, though it wasn’t advertised, as is the one scheduled for tomorrow three miles away.
Hopefully it doesn’t mean fireworks for two hours.
And that’s just the weekend. If last year is anything to go by, there will be a lot of fireworks going off on the estate throughout the evening, and it will be a nightmare picking a ‘quiet moment’ to get her out to pee.
