Just made it to morning……………..

It’s 11.30 and I’ve been up long enough to put the washing on and have breakfast.
It wasn’t that we were late coming home last night as the opposition didn’t mess about with their doubles, but Maggie was unwell again and had me up between 12 and 2.30.
Funny how it’s Tuesday night again as last week, but circumstances were different as we were away last week and home this, so nothing co-incides.
She eventually curled up on the other side of the bed to normal and was asleep by 3.
To be honest the lie in has done me good as I don’t feel tired, and actually in pretty good spirits.

Agenda today is not much, so I may well get my Christmas cards done this afternoon ready to post at the weekend. I’ve got a family birthday coming up, one which if missed may result in sulks and aggro towards the partner, which is pathetic, but not surprising considering the individual concerned.
This year has been one of ignoring/forgetting us so I will do the same next year, only sending a card at Christmas. I’m tired of it being all onesided, and besides, postage is expensive now, though imo it is one of the few things that offers value for money.
When you think about it, sending a letter/card from one side of the country to the other for less than a pound isn’t bad, is it.

As food for thought, the post that follows this one may be of interest (just ignore the date!)

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.

    Hope Maggie is over whatever was bothering her. I was supposed to have coffee this morning with a friend, but she was up all night with her husband who had such a bad attack of gout he can’t put any pressure at all on his foot. So I will be having a quiet day as well.

  2. I stopped sending out holiday cards a few years back when the cost of postage (and the cards themselves) became unreasonable – and when I realized that most people were sending holiday greetings via email, text, Facebook or Twitter anyway. We were getting fewer and fewer mailed cards, and it just seemed to be a dying trend. I’m ok with not receiving cards, and I trust my friends and relatives are ok with me not sending them.

    • The cost was one of the reasons I started making my own, and most are hand given to friends and neighbours. I have some extended family who I send to every year and they likewise to me. It’s immediate family I’ve grown tired with.
