Today is Saturday 29th August

Another month almost over as the year progresses.
Our routine hasn’t changed much, though with the dire weather of late, we are content to stay in.
We had a wayward compost bin lid which decided to fly over next door’s fence, except it was a different next door to what you would imagine. Hubby had to retrieve it from the property at the bottom of our garden, she of the fence that is only hers when it doesn’t need a repair.
The lid is now inside our compost bin with a brick on the top.
The flowering plants at the bottom of our garden in what we call the junk plot have been flattened in the 65 kph gusts of wind.

Walking round the block with Maggie this morning, I noticed some storm damage and memories of our own fences of that design in the cottage immediately sprung to mind. The fence concerned does not belong to the property where the broken panel is lying, and the couple that live there are elderly and in very poor health, she currently being in hospital and he being on morphine for back problems. He has maintained the fence in the past, but could not do this repair himself and the owners are unlikely to as it is a holiday let.

It’s another miserable day. The dog is restless and will not be getting many walks as showers are expected throughout the day and it will be a case of dodging the rain.  It’s all rather depressing, but does have a plus side insomuch as the holidaymakers will be staying in or away altogether, so hopefully when we do get out with her ladyship, we won’t have to dodge people too.

I’m doing a chicken curry for dinner today and will throw in some peppers and a chopped carrot for some colour. Poppadom (2 syns) and coconut of course  (1 syn)Photo: June 2018

Keep safe everyone and have a  great weekend.

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.

    The weather is such a pain, it’s sunny here at the moment! And deep excitement as hubby has suggested we visit M.I.L’s house…I have not been anywhere apart from the Drs, hospital or the vets for months!
    Your dinner look lovely 😋

  2. Pesky weather. Yesterday was winter here. Today is at least dry but super windy and cold. Feels like it’s set in now.

    I guess there is an upside to the rain and wind… Your curry looks delicious!
