It’s another beautiful day here in the UK, and the wind has dropped so I was able to walk Maggie this morning without a cardy or coat. Poo in the garden was OK……. hurrah!
We are taking advantage of this glorious weather by washing our body warmers and fleeces as we can get them out on the line to dry.
Hubby has another INR test today here at home. Hopefully things will be back in range after last week’s shock and drastic adjustment which made it plummet by Monday.
I had a pleasant chat with our neighbour on the drive yesterday afternoon which made a nice change and broke the monotony. She has stayed inside other than shopping once a week (she walks up to town early) and although we have rarely seen each other, we have played verbal tennis over the fence and text each other every day. We saw her this morning when she got back from shopping and chatted for about fifteen minutes. I’d had a shower and washed my hair, so was towelling it on the drive. The sun was so warm that by the time I came in, it was almost dry, so no need to use the hairdryer which will save a few pennies on the leccy bill!
With plans for the fit over 70s to be ‘allowed out’ now, she may resume her daily walks.
I’d suggested earlier she join me with the dog but she wasn’t happy as keeping to the social distancing recommendations said it wasn’t the same, even though it would have been just the two of us. She has read that a lot of people have got themselves dogs to get themselves out. We know of one who did that when the caravan park she worked for as a cleaner closed for at least 3 months. She’d wanted to get another dog after losing hers a few years ago, and was now taking advantage of having the time to train a puppy. Winne (the Pooh) is a cutie by the way, a Cavapoo, (cavalier X miniature poodle). And yes, on an extended lead, I was allowed to fuss on our drive, puppy teeth marks all the way up my arm. Lovely.
Onward with our day then. Lunch is the last day of our stew, though it may do another as Hubby didn’t want any yesterday. Tomorrow we will be off to buy steak and the trimmings for our anniversary meal.
