Sitting here at the moment listening to a rather good selection of music Hubby has picked up off Youtube.
We don’t listen to the radio or CDs very often now. In the car the radio might be on for the news or traffic reports if we’re travelling any distance. I couldn’t tell you what’s popular in the charts let alone what’s at the top as the majority of ‘current’ music I’ve heard has been pretty dire, either noise, warbling or totally tuneless.
The day has been lazy. Apart from walking three bags of poo to the doggy bin by the cut through and giving Maggie a test walk of little distance to see how her joints are, we haven’t been out of the house other than the garden.
No phone calls and no visitors, it was nice to have some post, even if it was just bank statements, confirmation of Hubby’s CT scan next week and some scalpel blades he’d ordered.
Food has been snacky, I can’t say baked potatoes are cooking and it has been nice to just relax at home basically doing nothing at all.
Our blood pressures have reverted to normal, and we have calmed down after the trauma of yesterday.
I had over two hours nonstop driving picking Hubby up from the hospital last night.
It’s a long time since I did some night driving, in fact the last time was when he was in the hospital in the other direction about a year and a half ago following a heart scare. I got there to collect him at 4 am only to find him wired up and as white as a sheet having had an episode whilst waiting for me, so I ended up coming home on my own.
Last night, it was surprising the amount of people walking, on push bikes and other vehicles on the road between 1.30 and 2 .30 am.
I saw a pair of huge eyes staring at me from the middle of the road and as there was nobody else about, I stopped. It was an owl, a tawny owl I think, totally gorgeous and silent in flight when it took off. Sadly I saw a dead muntjac deer which wasn’t there when I’d first come home around eleven thirty, and three foxes on their nightly prowl. There were also quite a number of cats.
We thought about having an early night, but I know that isn’t a good idea when our minds are thinking about something else, so now, at nearly 11 pm, we’ve walked the dog to the end of the road to do her business and given her a dose of loxicom to help her sleep through the night. Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit more normal for all of us.
