Today is Friday, May 1st

White Bunnies and all that.

May brings a variety of anniversaries and birthdays, including ours and mine. It will be 24 years since my Dad passed away, and Mum would have been 98 this year.

The day started at 4.41 with Maggie wanting to go out. The usual squat bot, and back to bed until 6.30 then another paw to go out. Not a perfect poo but at least it was identifiable.
I got up at 7.45, took my BP and checked the weight. I’ve lost a pound so the scales were being nice.
Maggie’s had her first walk and is a little stiff in her shoulders. The damp weather doesn’t help so we’ll keep her warm and massage her joints which usually helps plus we can give her some anti-inflammatory medication later. She didn’t want her breakfast this morning, but that could be because I didn’t put extra chicken in it.
Dinner today is fish for Hubby and tomato pasta for me, so I’ll add some grated cheese to it for her. She should have been a mouse.

Hubby is checking out new laptops as mine is failing fast. It doesn’t help that I’ve worn off a lot of the letters so have sticky labels on most (thank you self adhesive card letterings), but it keeps buzzing and beeping at me. He’s already repaired the cable, and it would appear that the circuit board has a crack in it. Good having my own personal laptop engineer, and because we have identical models, he can use mine for spares. The only problem with his is the X key, which only works periodically.
Finding a replacement is turning out to be a game as should there be a problem, local suppliers aren’t open for returns and ordering on-line faces delays of weeks rather than days. Let’s see what happens after the 7th and if anything is reopening.

As usual, not much on the agenda today. The weather is a bit iffy, but we’ve washed the dog blankets and they were dry in two hours. The sky is sort of patchy blue, grey and white so you never know what’s going to happen.

Enjoy your day everyone and keep safe.


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.

    Have a great day Di.

  3. The first of reopening is starting today. Yesterday a lightning storm passed through the area, it crashed a tree that I remember walking by in my teens. It had to be over 100 years old. Have stress free day and stay safe.

  4. I’m glad that Maggie is feeling better and that you have your own personal laptop engineer. 😂 Have a great day, Di.

    I hope you find a new laptop soon! And I hope Maggie’s joints are ok! Sending hugs to all of you! Xxxx
