My day started at 5.10 when Maggie wanted to go out. I dragged myself out of bed, donned joggers, slippers and a coat and let her outside into the garden. No messing about, squat of the bot, and back to bed.
Up again at 6, just wanted to sniff around this time.
By 7 she was whinging so I let her out again, then decided to give up trying to get back to sleep and got dressed.
I took her for a walk at 8, no poos, but two wees, and of course because it had been raining we had to refresh our familiarity with the grass……….. practically every blade. A ten minute walk took me forty minutes.
The air is fresh after the much needed rain and the garden is harmonious with joy at having a drink.
Monday is weigh in day, and I’ve had another sock gain.
This makes two pairs in the last few weeks, but I’ve been comfort eating and somehow two packets of chocolate biscuits and some peanut bars leapt off the shelf into the shopping trolley when I went in. Hubby will be doing the honours from now on. I’m still two pounds within target though, but I will be making a better effort this week to try and bounce the scales the other way.
We have invaders in the greenhouse that have a passion for radishes and we have lost every single shoot to ANTS! The ant powder has been applied and so have the dried chrysanthemum petals. We shall be going up the road later to buy flowers so that we can start again as this little tip we picked up last year really works and kept them out of the house.
Not much else on the agenda today. Last day of our three day stew for lunch, then tomorrow fish for Hubby and a pasta bake for me.
