Today is Thursday 25th February

Hello and good morning!!
The washing is done and outside in the hope that it will dry significantly to finish off indoors. Joggers and towels today, so they always take longer.

We’ve had a lovely walk in the park, and so did a lot of other people, but we managed to keep our distance, though Lottie and Robin don’t take any notice of that.
A pair of rather rotund pugs (or shovel dogs as Hubby calls them) they’re not in my top ten of favourite canines, but they do have a certain charm. Lottie is the traditional sandy brown colour with a black face, and recognised my voice. She shot off the grass in my direction, well as fast as her chubby legs would carry her, and thrust herself under my hands for fuss. Robin is black and would not be left out, so she waddled over in her own time, pushed Lottie out of the way and wedged herself firmly on my foot.

We walked up onto the prom, and it was busy! Everywhere we looked there were people, so we played dodgems and walked back through the park to avoid three couples in all directions on the back road! We would have come back through the estate, but there were three people with their dogs at the end of the path, so we came straight home.

I have had notification that my first jab is in the pipeline.
Now I just have to wait until I get a phone call with a date, which hopefully will be one day next week or the following weekend.
I have also had a letter from my consultant and having reviewed my files, it has been decided to keep me on my cancer meds until 2029. My mammos will continue until 2024 as a matter of course. I just have to book a bone density scan soon as I have to have one of those every two years which can only be arranged via my GP.

Day two of our stew today, which will whizz up lovely to a thick broth for Hubby. The protein drinks and puddings are also going down well and doing the job.
I love it when things come together!

Take 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! 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.

    That’s great news.

  2. It sounds like a lovely day with much accomplished. I am happy your hubby is getting to keep down some yummy food. You getting your shot is great news.

  3. My mother’s present cancer treatment [tamoxiphen] is for life, Di. I hope you got your washing dry. It’s raining a lot here so I am using the tumble drier. I don’t have time to keep rushing outside whenever it rains when I am working.

    • Hope your Mum is doing OK Roberta. I opted for Letrozole rather than tamoxiphen and it seems to suit me OK.
      We’ve just taken the washing in and it’s dry! Hurrah!!!

  4. What a lovely visit from those pugs…they have a personality for sure! ❤ I took Sir Ziggy into the groomers for his nail clipping, and NOBODY in there (except me) was masked. A woman came in behind me with a beautiful black and white spaniel (of some sort), who was frightened and kept trying to hide behind his mistress. Ziggy looked put upon but endured the clipping and now he won't snag his nails on my rugs and couch throws. I realize the vaccine has been rolled out for a lot of folks, but not for the groomer (who is younger than I am) nor that woman with the spaniel. I guess they think it's safe now…but I think that's crazy. I was masked of course and got some mighty odd stares. Whatever.

    • The pugs were cuties. Hubby’s had his first jab and mine will be coming up soon, but we’ll still mask up when we shop or likely to come in the vicinity of groups of people. Wonder if the spaniel was a springer? Maggie’s dad was a liver and white springer spaniel, but black and white is also popular.
      Keep safe.

    Glad you got to have some puppy time! Sounds as if things are looking up. I got my first vaccination today and have my second one scheduled for March 25th. I’m hoping we’ll be able to travel come August!

  6. Glad to hear that you will be getting your shot soon. My husband is due for his first installment in mid-March. Lord only knows when I will get mine. I enjoyed your interaction with the pugs.
    There is a guy in town here who breeds them. He will sometimes walk four of them at a time. I’ve chatted with him while the pugs swarmed me snorting. I’d laugh and call out, “Oh no! I’m being pugged! Help! Also glad to hear that you are getting your puppy fix. Take care. Begonia

    • Thank you. I love all dogs, regardless of breed, age or size. I have my preferred breeds, but will fuss them all if allowed. Lovely memories of rotties, GSDs and labs, and of course our beloved Maggie.
