Today is Thursday 4th June

and the heat is on!
or should I say the heating’s on!! We could not believe that temperatures had dropped significantly for us to start shivering as soon as we slipped our toes out of bed!
Checking the thermostat, the temperature indoors had fallen to 17.5º C (we like it through the colder months at a constant 18º C, 64 .4º F ) and outside because of the wind, the weather page said a real feel of 8º!
This is supposed to be flaming June, but someone forgot to light the burner.

Maggie had a good night, getting me up at midnight to sniff the garden and nothing else, but from the way she was moving, I think she had cramp and needed to stretch her legs. Back to bed and she slept until 5 when I let her out for a wee. No problems there.
We’ve walked her round the block, business as usual, a little soft, but good. Her second jab is due for 11.15 this morning.

Anyone noticed this?

Perhaps they’re re-thinking or (even better) they couldn’t implement it. Happiness Engineers please note, most of us don’t appear to want it anyway, so there’s no rush!!

Delivery of slabs today so things are moving towards Hubby getting a proper Man Cave in the very near future!
Uh-oh………… have just rung the garden centre and apparently our town is not on his route this morning!!! Argh!!!! The receptionist is going to contact the driver and find out what’s going on, especially as we had TRIPLE checked that delivery was today, and not on a Wednesday as we were originally told.

Callback……………. on for this afternoon so both of us can go to the vet for Maggie’s jab this morning, which I’m quite relieved about as Hubby can stay with her again.

Stay safe everyone.

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.

    Man- cave. Most important. I’ve spent a month clearing out the old outbuilding at the bottom of our garden. Not ideal, but it’s big! Now, finally, I have one… drills at the ready…. hope your slabs came! 😎

    Yes, the announcements from WordPress about the ‘change’ to the new editor don’t appear to be related to the reality. I’ve been using the new block editor myself already (it’s actually not that bad) so perhaps that explains why I haven’t seen the notice you’ve highlighted.

  3. Liz says:

    I was wondering too if they held back forcing block editor for what ever reason, with it not changing. Like you, I don’t care its not changed, but if one day I find it has, I will still switch to classic editor.

    Hooe everything goes ok at tje vets today and I do hope they keep their word and deliver those slabs this afternoon.

    • Maggie saw the new lady vet today and when she had her jab, she didn’t know it had been done. Now we’ve just got to get the meds in her as she’s turning her nose up at our master plan of corned beef!
      Slabs coming this afternoon and we’ve kept the drive clear so that they can drop them at the gate

  4. Yes it’s definitely two jumper weather.

    I don’t know why WordPress have to keep tinkering. So far every time they tinker I like it less. Their “improvements” are anything but.

  6. Sadje says:

    I’m glass Maggie is feeling better. I hope WP is reading your message.

  7. I use a link to get to my old classic editor so I haven’t been forced to switch yet. At some point they will probably stop supporting the old one and it will go the way of the dinosaur. I tried the new one early on and it was a disaster. I hear it’s better now. Not sure why they needed to improve it. We are in a similar situation to you. We have been waiting to get work done on the pavers in our patio. We started this process last year and “today” is supposed to be the day. However, if there is a cloud in the sky, they may cancel. One day last summer they showed up. It was sunny, warm and clear. They guy looked at the pavers and said they were too “wet.” They weren’t wet at all. Hadn’t rained in days. I’m thinking he wanted an early quit. So here we are. It’s 9 a.m. and no sign of them yet. Hopefully your delivery will come and all will be well. Hugs to Maggie of course.

    • Hi Kate.
      I’ve got a link set up back to the classic editor if I need it too.
      Hubby’s been doing the groundwork himself, which has taken its toll but he’s been happy to do it and keep occupied.
      Once he’s got his shed, I can see him tinkering as he’s downloaded plans for a model boat.
      Maggie is good. We saw the new lady vet today and she didn’t hurt her when she had her jab which is promising. She’s dozing at the moment. We’re having a game getting the meds in her as she’s turning her nose up at cheese and corned beef! Hubby will simply crush the pill up and add some milk, then use a syringe in the mouth!

      • Does it taste bad? I expect it does as she’s usually cooperative. If it does, crushing may not help. Whenever I had to give Metronidazole to my cats, it was a hassle as it tastes terrible. They learned quickly. One trick is to make sure you don’t get the smell on the outside of the treat. Good luck.

      • The pills are the same as she had before but different strength. It’s a new pack of corned beef and well within date. The cheese is also new and one she is familiar with. I think she is just feeling pretty yukky (I remember how I felt with my monthlies sometimes), but we have to give her these with food otherwise she’ll be sick. We’ve tried a sausage roll too and she ate that but left the pill! Hubby’s idea will work and we’ll give her treats afterwards.

      • Good luck and let us know how it goes. I wish they could put a tasty coating on pills to make them easier to administer.

      • we’ll get there.

    Sounds like good news all around – the slabs delivered, both of you taking Maggie to the vet, the vet visit going well, and Maggie doing better!

    • She is better this morning, though still groggy. At least she’s eaten something and Hubby has given her the first doze of meds for the day. We’re watching her very carefully, but the nose is cold and wet, when she’s asleep her breathing is steady, and although she hasn’t done anything in the garden since about 6am, she is going outside with us.

    Yes, I’ve changed to block editor but don’t like it. I’ve learnt how to work the system (sort of) but it is a fiddle and does lots of stuff I don’t need because I like a minimalist layout. I shall switch back and use the classic editor as long as I can. Ax

    • I suddenly found it had all changed some time ago but managed to go back onto the classic editor, hence putting a link to my own site in readiness should they do it automatically.

      • Mishmash Media Blog says:

        Oh pleased I’m not the only one! Don’t really see the point of using the new block editor unless you want fancy graphics and so on. x

      • I’m a bit of a technophobe, so basics rule as I just want to write and post with the occasional inserted photograph.
