Today is Monday 15th June

Warm, muggy, and grey today, but the sun is trying to brighten the day.

I understand a lot of previously closed shops plan to open today, though talking to fellow dog workers who happen to work in said shops, they are only working minimum hours with minimal staff and some outlets have reduced their opening hours too.
I have visions of people spilling out into the road like suds from an overflowing washing machine as they try to implement the social distancing, but then TPTB have intentions of reducing the 2 metre gap to one, if not scrap it all together (meeting being held to discuss today apparently).

Hubby has an emergency INR this morning following a prescription for antibiotics (which always cocks it up) as he got an infection from the last one at the surgery! The irony, keep safe and well having house visits, then go to the surgery who are intent on ‘good hygiene practices’ and ask you to complete war and peace before you even get in for treatment, and come away with a finger infection where the one-use needle went in.
As we are out, we shall do a top up shop of the basics, though we are intending to do a monthly shop sometime this week just in case the second C-wave hits next week or shortly thereafter as it happens to be 14 days after the lockdown restrictions were eased.

Dinner today is McCheese, and I’ll get some lovely fresh veg to go with mine and pack my plate out. Weigh in this morning and I’ve put on the pound I lost last week , so I’m still within target with a little bit to spare! All out back to basics this week, as sadly I did……..
It’s a new week, and hopefully there will be some good news on the horizon. The media has been so depressing and I woke up this morning thinking about budgets. I’ll probably end up doing a post on that so may use today’s top up shop as a basis.

Have a good day everyone and keep well

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.

  1. Hopefully there will be indeed some good news ahead! Have a good week!

    My goodness, I can’t believe your hubby got an infection from having his blood taken. The last couple of weeks have been a nightmare. Everything that could go wrong has fone wrong for everyone I know, including me. Let’s hope this week is better 🤞 stay safe and healthy Di.

    I realise people are suffering financially, especially over here, but I do think everything’s being opened up too quickly. We do keep out 2m distance at all times and have to queue outside even a large supermarket, if they already have their allotted numbers inside.
    Can’t wait for this pandemic to be on the way out!
    Keep Safe. 🙂

    • We both agree they have relaxed things too early. Our High Street stores were open this morning, apparently queues first thing, but when we drove by to see how things were, everywhere was pretty quiet. Our town will take a while to recover as business relies on the tourist trade. We already think the food market will fold as numbers were down anyway.
      Like you, we can’t wait for signs that the pandemic is on its way out, but can’t see that happening for quite a while yet unfortunately.
      Take care

    I hope your day goes well. All the best.

  5. We are not relaxed here yet. Our numbers have declined considerably and I think maybe by the end of June we will be open too. With masks and distancing. Some things are open now but not a lot. Love your quip on “suds from a washing machine.” Perfectly describes people. It’s as if they opened the jails and people are storming out. Maybe they are “storming the Bastille!” Sorry about hubby’s booboo. Can’t believe that they didn’t take care to make sure there was no infection. Nothing new on Maggie so I’m hoping all is well.

    • We take Maggie to the vet tomorrow for a check up and possible second ultrasound to see if the injections have worked. We hope so as she appears ‘clean’ though I’m wondering if we can expect a small discharge for another week or so as if she was in season. Something to ask anyway. I’m still anxious but I’ll be posting tomorrow with the outcome.
      We’re open here in town, no masks though, no social distancing, though they are limiting numbers inside the shops. Going to do a big shop this week so it will be interesting to see what is happening further afield.

    So sorry to hear your husband got an infection from the finger prick. Hope the antibiotics did the trick. Best wishes on Maggie’s next check-up. I’ve got my fingers crossed that she will have completely cleared the pyometra and is good as new!

    • Thank you. Hubby’s doing OK and the antibiotics are doing their stuff. His INR was within range today. Maggie’s check up is tomorrow. She is good within herself, eating and drinking well, active, and everything ese looks clean.
