And I have the majority of the day to myself!!
Hubby has gone off with a friend to the shooting range about 30 miles away, so while the cat’s away, mousey will play……… well sort of.
Our neighbour sent me a text saying the neighbourhood tabby cat had left another calling card. Apparently it sits on her raised veg plot frame and defiantly stares at her through her patio doors after leaving a dead mouse in the dirt.
I offered to dispose of the corpse, which turned out to be a little field mouse. I don’t mind mice, as long as they’re not indoors. You might like to read here, here, and here
Now that I’ve hopefully made you smile (especially the third post referral which still makes me chortle), time to get on with the day.
I honestly don’t know what to do first.
I’ve done the washing and hoovered right through, and will be having a large jacket (baked) potato with cheese and mixed veg for my dinner.
Hubby had his breakfast as usual and I hope his upset tummy from yesterday has settled down. He was having an affair with the porcelain and lost 2½ pounds. I am jealous of the weight loss, but not the reason behind it of course, especially as he seems to be eating all day whereas I am struggling keeping to my food plan to get back in control of my weight and just have to look at the wrong thing for a pound to appear.
Now that the puzzle is finished, I have the dining table free so I could do some cards. I was thinking of my aunt who kindly sent me some more woolly hats, and if she would be able to get out to buy Christmas cards. I have loads of trimmings so could easily put together a dozen and post them off to her.
I could also have a session on the keyboard as I haven’t played for a while. Might help my nerves and ease the frustration as Maggie is being an absolute pain in respect of letting us wash her feet and give her her meds. Both of us got angry with her this morning, so all being well she will have a sleep and we can start the day afresh. The good news there is that the inflammation and swelling seems to have gone down. We take her back to the vet tomorrow for a follow up appointment,
