Today is Monday 27th July

Good morning! I made it and have been up since 8.30 am!
Hope you have all had a good start to the day. It’s raining here and I hope the holidaymakers are soggy and go home.
I read this morning that 21 people have tested positive for Covid-19 in a caravan park in Shropshire. Terrific…………. we’ve just had twenty ‘traveller’ caravans invade the football pitch in the next town. I am sorry, but we do not want them here, especially now.

Another quiet day is planned.
Maggie seems on the mend, she had a couple of walks yesterday and one already this morning. Her movement is more fluid but we are still being watchful.
Dinner today is the second half of yesterday’s chili and I’ll do some extra veg for me. I’ve had a small gain this week which puts me right at the top of my target parameters. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to get the balance right, my appetite is all over the place, though I know the cheesecake and rock buns haven’t helped, so I was lucky to get away with a sock gain.

Depression is settling in and that is definitely not good, so I’m glad I’ve got no yummies in the house apart from a packet of chocolate biscuits I’m keeping for emergencies, and my Fererro Rocher chocolates from my birthday are still unopened.
One nice thing about having our lounge at the front of the house is that I see people go by.
Most look this way and wave, which is really nice, especially if we haven’t been out.

I intend to go through my card making kit later and see what I have, then make a list of what I’d like to get tomorrow. I’m looking forward to craft shopping, so hope I’m not disappointed and find they no longer stock the things I like. I’ve tried their website and the items I use are purchase in store only which is a bit of a bummer. I might even make a few today.

Hubby has put a live Pink Floyd concert on his laptop, and it’s been great listening to real musicians and classic Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall.

Take care 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.

    Thanks for the laugh – “It’s raining here and I hope the holiday makers are soggy and go home!” ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
    I totally sympathise – in general for holidaymakers being there, but particularly now, when they should all be home!
    Hang in there. This too shall pass. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry you are feeling down Di, wish I could do something to lift your spirits. But I can send you a virtual hug.

  4. Itโ€™s like winter here. Awful. I had to run out to do an hours work. Town centre and I saw two people with masks, one being me. Full of tourists, no social distancing.

  5. Sadje says:

    Hugs and warm wishes.

  6. I’m sorry you are down. I think we all are to some extent. Some days are better than others but I’m glad that your hubby and Maggie are one the mend. Doesn’t he have a test tomorrow? Hopefully that will go well too.

    • Thanks Kate. Things are looking brighter as we’ve had a quiet day again and I’m feeling less stressed.
      CT scan tomorrow first thing in the morning, so we have an early start as the hospital is 35 miles away.
      Good thing is it’s an official appointment and we know where we’re going.
      Another good thing is that I can go to a proper arts and crafts shop for card trimmings and intend to spend as much as it costs!
      Not exactly retail therapy, but there’s nothing within a 25 mile radius of here so I’m stocking up! Just hope they have what I’m interested in.
      We shall also do our weekly shop on the way back, so it’s going to be a busy day, and lunch will be a takeout!

  7. I’m so sorry about those horrid tourists. They give the rest of us, who want to visit your country, a damned bad name, A pox on them! ๐Ÿ˜ก Small pox hopefully… Ooo was that too harsh? ๐Ÿ˜† Stay safe and I didn’t hear Ms. Maggie was poorly – is it her joints or her leg? I bumped Pudge’s ‘bad’ leg on the desk (He will insist on getting in my lap, and refusing to get down again, so I pick him up and put him on the floor…he was too near the desk and bumped his leg.) He was limping initially and tried to snap/bite (he gums) at me when I picked him up again and had a feel along the leg to make sure nothing was out of place or broken. He was walking okay again within a couple of hours and I suppose it was like when I hit my bad knee on the same desk. Agony! Here’s well wishes to you and to Ms. Maggie, and a premature departure of all the horrid holidaymakers who are being stupid. โค โค

    • The tourists are mainly from the UK, big cities where Covid-19 is rife so they decide to get away from it all and give it to us!!!! I could spit, but then I’d be arrested.
      Maggie has been stiff in her shoulder joints, plus licking her feet so making them sore, so she hasn’t been having her usual walks for a few days. She seems better today though and we’ve had four walks round the block so far.

    I know what you mean, I’m all over the place these days with my weight, I cant wait to get it right and start losing again. Its disheartening when we have a gain. xoxo

  9. murisopsis says:

    Perhaps my wish for you is coming true! I hope they do get completely rained out!! I hope Maggie is feeling better soon.

    • It’s been a warm and sunny day today, not that we have been here much until this afternoon. Town was really busy though and I only anted dog biscuits!
