Today is Thursday 28th May

Lots to report today!

First: the meds are doing their thing and Maggie is on the mend. Sadly, the poo has taken a backward step, but at least it’s clearupable.

Second: our Plan B for the screen curtain sort of worked, except it was too short and too light in the wind. Still, I have another idea and amendment which shall be explored tomorrow when we take the unsuitable item back for a refund.

Third: Hubby has replaced the venetian blind in the small bedroom as two of the slats had split, and he’d already replaced previous broken ones with the spares ‘down under’ that we’d left when we adjusted the height originally.

Fourth: Hubby has got himself a trundle trolley. He’s been after one for a while, even though we had nowhere to actually put it, but with the slabs for the shed base coming next week, it will be a godsend rather than trying to carry them  from point A to point B. Hopefully the delivery guys will put them out back rather than leave them on the drive,

Fifth:  we’ve had a blitz in the kitchen having found that ants were getting in, so it was all out war trying to find where and how. We’ve had the freezer, washing machine and cooker out and emptied the cupboards. We’ve sprayed everywhere with Dethlac and puffed with Nippon ant powder.
Outside we raked back all the loose stone, checked the water and gas pipes pipes into the house and along the damp proof course, and again sprayed and puffed.
No nest as such, but some pretty miffed insects. Hubby will buy me some more chrysanths and we can use the dried petals as we did last year which kept them out.

Sixth: I intended to send an email to the council today asking when they were going to come and cut the grass in our road and the cut through. As it turned out, I didn’t have to.
Like buses, you don’t see one for ages then three come along at once!
We had a guy with a strimmer, another on a sit-on mower, and a third with a leaf blower thingie cos there was no way they’ve vacuumed up the cuttings! I wouldn’t have been surprised if there was a mad exodus of wildlife, especially as someone had seen a snake in the long grass. It could have been a slow worm, but imagine the potential lawsuit should a child have been bitten by an adder because the grass hadn’t been cut.

Got a gem coming up for you next as it deserves a post all to itself!

Keep well and safe everyone.


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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Glad Maggie is getting on the mend. Let’s hope not too much disruption for her in the digestive department and that she remains free of any other infections.

    Yes, the trundle trolley will be a god send than carrying and you never know, it may come in use for other projects.

    Good day for you all.

    Wow you’ve been very productive! Me – well I managed to wash the shower curtain and do a load of laundry besides. Other than that I did a little sewing and went for a walk… quite the lazy day today. Sparky (my husband) was up and down all night with an intestinal ailment. He’s napped today and says he doesn’t want chili soup for dinner. So it looks like I’m going to have to figure out something else. Maybe some cream of rice cereal…

    • We have days like that too.. Today hasn’t gone at all as I’d expected or planned. I’m exhausted, and the dog is being unco-operative in the bedtime wee stakes, so I’ll probably have to get up in the night.

    I hope the fly screen gets fixed soon 💜
