Our internet connection is slow and erratic, which is not surprising as it’s been raining off and on all day and doesn’t seem to like damp chilly conditions.
We’ve collected our second chest of drawers which is now in situ in the bedroom and tomorrow will be spent sorting out whatever is lurking under the bed. The town was busy despite the bad weather, and collection did not go as smoothly as yesterday when Hubby was in and out of the showroom in less than ten minutes. Today there were over a dozen people inside and only one person serving as they’d had a delivery and floor staff were all hands on deck to get it unloaded.
Maggie has reverted to her cantankerous self by not weeing or pooing on our walks, despite bothering us to go out. She won’t go in the garden again and both of us have got more than a little damp taking her out only for her to do nothing. So far today we have had just one wee on our first walk and an extended poo after she’d bypassed all the usual grass places only to do it on the pavement on Hubby’s shift at 2 pm.
We’ve heard on the radio news that banks may be doing away with free banking and charging their customers for holding an account, and also that the Post Office intend to start charging at their ATMs in a bid to recoup some of their falling profits.
A bit of a dismal day.
However, our neighbour sent a text at 2.30 asking if the kettle was on, and came round for an hour. She had a better night’s sleep last night, mainly we think because she’d fallen asleep on the settee in the evening and when she woke up, went straight to bed without turning on the bedroom TV as usual. She awoke at 1.45, checked the time and went back to sleep, then didn’t wake up again until 5.45. This is good news to us as she has not been sleeping well for months. She looks less strained today.
Lunch today was home made cottage pie with a cheese topping. Hubby polished off his share in two sittings with no after effects and is well pleased with himself. So am I as it was proper food. I haven’t decided what to do for dinner tomorrow yet.
