Today is Monday 22nd February

It is late afternoon and we have had an excellent day so far!

Hubby’s INR has crept up to a much safe level of 2.4, so although he still has a way to go, he is in a better range. His INR nurse is well pleased, but he has another test on Thursday.
He went into the prescriptions office and was given a huge bag of protein drinks and puddings to help with his diet as promised by the doctor he spoke to on Saturday. He will be able to collect the rest tomorrow. He had an apple drink this afternoon which he said was quite pleasant, non acidic, and filling!

We went shopping this morning to stock up for the month on UHT milk, tea bags, cereals and a few other bits and pieces. We met up with a five month old jack russell and his owners, and he was so cute! I got trashed, and so did Hubby, so smiles all round.
Nothing needed for the freezer other than some more cherries as they are de-stoned and better value than buying fresh. I can also use them for smoothies as I’ve been sent some recipes to try.
We decided to buy an individual cottage pie and share it, doing extra veggies for me. We had hoped that the minced beef would be really fine so that Hubby could tolerate it. Sadly this was not the case, and he couldn’t eat it, so just had the mashed potato on the top.
He’s not going hungry though, and has done pretty well so far with breakfast, a gingerbread teddy, meringue nest and some peanut butter, though not all together!

We did some washing and put it out on the line before going out. Forever optimistic with the weather forecast, we’d hoped it would at least be drier by the time we got back.
Fat chance, so we stripped the bed and put that on while we had lunch, then Hubby went up to the launderette.
I had a phone call to say he’d been ‘attacked by a ferocious dog’, so I asked if it was Poppy, the little chihuahua down the road, as I had just seen her owner taking her out for a walk.
The attacker was a brindle and white cavalier King Charles spaniel who was ‘absolutely gorgeous’ and had just waddled over to Hubby and sat down.  It seems she always does that to people and likes to be fussed. I asked if she was small enough to put in his pocket,  and apparently not, but she would fit in the laundry basket. She was about 5.

We’d done a little bit of shopping for our neighbour too and she came in for a cup of tea just after lunch. She still has a nasty bruise on her arm from her jab almost 2 weeks ago. Apart from feeling a little more tired than usual and Hubby had some serious aches and pains last night which have now gone, he’s doing OK.
MSM rang us today and she had similar aches and pains, plus she woke up two nights afterwards shivering and unable to get warm. That had all passed by morning, and she’ll have her second jab on April 1st. She’s OK, though bored and fed up.

Whatever heat there was is going out of the day now, so we are winding down for our evening. Hope your day has been good too.
Tale care and keep safe 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.

    Hope you have a good day

  2. ❤ AW on the doggie luvs! ❤ All of the ones you described sound so beautiful and very well mannered! Chihuahuas can be vicious, but they're so tiny, that one simply picks them up (the owner) and they usually then calm down. Hunydog was very much a Mama's girl, and would get upset if someone even approached the car. They're truly 'one person' dogs…that spaniel sounds an absolute doll! How wonderful for your hubby! ☺

    • Love my puppy fixes. Ralph (black lab) is far from a pup, but he is totally gorgeous and so loving……. and not even mine!
      I once passed a car and nearly had a heart attack when seven chihuahuas lunged at the window, barking and snarling! I’d never been a fan, but little Poppy up the road is such a sweetheart, and she would fit in m pocket!!

    Back at work in both jobs today after my self-isolation ending last night.
    Caught up with some letter writing and posted them this morning. Other jobs followed. So a late lunch, but at least I won’t go hungry at work and will manage till home.
    I had not quite a couple hours kip in the afternoon. That was my day.
    Once home, a cuppa and sandwich and not long after, bed.

    What a great day – good news (mostly) and some doggie love – what more could you want?!

    I am amazed the protein drinks tasted good! I am glad hubby is tolerating them and liking them. Too bad about the cottage pie! Xx
