Playing catch up again

We’ve been out and about today so blogging has taken a back seat and I’m playing catch up.
After our fitter left just after 10am, we decided to go shopping and asked our neighbour if she needed anything or perhaps if she’s like to come with us?
She jumped at the chance, so we went to Skeg and have had a most enjoyable day in her company.
We stopped off to let Maggie have a wee and walked round the lake to check on my new pet, which she hadn’t seen before.
She had a little bit of shopping to do herself, and as we had nothing that could spoil, we decided to have lunch out which was a lovely cup of tea and a chicken salad roll made to order with no spread or mayo. We sat on a bench in the shopping precinct whilst Maggie scrounged off all three of us and people watched.

There were people and dogs of all descriptions, shapes and sizes, one a five year old cocker spaniel that was absolutely gorgeous but a little nervous. It didn’t help that a pair of brats were bombing the pavement close by with ‘snaps’, little cracker balls that exploded on impact with a hard surface. If they had come any closer, I intended to have a word with the parents, but they moved away from us up towards the Esplanade and amusement arcades.
Back at the car, we gave Maggie a drink, then headed for home.

We got back just after 3pm and had a very welcome cup of tea, our neighbour returning home about 4.  She said she was pleasantly tired, so all being well she should sleep well tonight. I hope so, as she says she hasn’t had more than four hours a night since her husband passed away. It’s hard to believe that was five weeks ago now.


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! 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.

    A day relaxing!

  2. That was such a kind thing to do. Does she get along with Maggie? Would Maggie stay with her for an hour or so?

  3. Nothing like a cup of tea after a trip. I really understand the lack of sleep thing.

    Good to get away from the pc occasionally. I must do it too, one of these days…

  5. This reminded me of our trip to Chicago. Don’t think I’ve so many dogs of all shapes and sizes before!

    • There are hundreds here, and I’ll fuss them all if given the chance. With the holiday season upon us, more visitors with dogs, but sadly most don’t clear up!
