My day started just after 6.30 with a text from Hubby to say he’d had a really good night.
I was surfacing as it was time for Maggie’s first wee, but she decided she didn’t want to get up yet, so who was I to argue, and I had another hour.
I got up and had a shower, then set to to making breakfast for the two of us. No more meds now, so it was back to scrambled eggs. Her ladyship was not impressed as this was not the chicken she had in mind.
I walked her round the block and Hubby rang just as I was re-entering our road. I had decided to come back and cut the grass. Yes. Me. Without a safety net. Cutting the grass using the electric lawn mower, and foolishly told Hubby of my plans.
His anxiety went into overdrive. I told him I’d be fine, it wasn’t as if I hadn’t done it before, but he said he’d been there in case I’d flymo’d the flex or anything went wrong. I told him to ‘Trust Me’ which always makes him nervous, and let myself into the house.
It took me about ten minutes to do the front as it’s not a very big area and there are no obstacles. The back however took me almost an hour, but I cleared up the cuttings and put everything away clean and tidy ready for next time.
I took this with my phone, Di’s grass cutting effort!
Our red rose bush is in bloom, so I also took these:
Maggie was having a sniff as well.
The birds were happily scrabbling away after ants and worms after my hard work. The flower bed is alive with bees and although I was tired and a little stiff in my back, I felt a great sense of achievement.
When I came in, there was a text message from Hubby asking if I was OK.
I replied saying all was done, flex was intact, and I was going to get myself some lunch.
As it turned out, I walked Maggie again first, did the housework, then had a jacket potato with the last of the chicken breast I’d bought yesterday (Maggie had half), some mushrooms, salad and veg. No mayo today.
One of these pictures was also taken with my phone.
I have had a light snack of crackers, cheese and cherry tomatoes, have walked the dog for the penultimate time, and now looking forward to some blogging time and challenges.
All being well I shall sleep very well tonight!
