We all have days like these, when we seem to stare into space but see nothing.
Hubby asked me if I was OK and I said I was fine, just feeling a little ‘detached’.
We had a few games of darts this afternoon, and were well matched, having some high scores, and a few silly ones. I was over 250 behind at one time, but Hubby couldn’t get his double. I managed to get down to double 2, then he got his double 1, so I think he was just being kind and waiting for me.
Overall, I lost 3 – 0, but apart from that first game, they could have gone either way.
Since then, I’ve just been sitting here, not doing very much, going through my reader, and drinking endless cups of tea.
I’ve walked the dog on my own a couple of times, and we’ve just got back from walking her together. She’s very alert and content at the moment, but that could be because the injection hasn’t kicked in fully yet, though if this is how she’s going to be tonight, I certainly have no problems with that.
I’d had a phone call earlier from the elderly lady whose vet we were thinking of using who weren’t very helpful. She was surprised, but admitted she had been going to this practice for thirty odd years. She told me that there is something going on in the park and wondered if I’d heard anything. Other than 8 geese deaths being investigated, I said no.
She was chatting to one of the workmen on her early walk this morning and it’s not just geese that are dying. All of the ducklings and now the last brood of goslings are also dead, as are more geese and a lot of ducks. The experts have been called in and it’s believed they are being poisoned. As to how or why is not known yet, but for the time being, we have decided the park is out of bounds for Maggie and probably a lot of other dog walkers are thinking along the same lines.
If it is deliberate, how cruel, callous and senseless an act on defenseless creatures and it makes my blood boil. Maybe that’s why I can’t put my mind to anything just now.
