Today is Monday, March 1st

It is another White Bunnies Day.
It’s dull and overcast, but still mild, though the heating did kick in early this morning.

Each day rolls into the other, though we try to change things around a bit and do things in a different order. Thing is you can’t exactly go back to bed at 7am and sleep through the night can you? Saying that though, I can usually nod off for an hour.

When I was working, the alarm would go off at 7.30, and Mum would have brought a cup of tea up to me having seen Dad off to work for 7am. I’d eventually get up around 7.45, maybe even as late as 8am, get washed and dressed, then out the door for the mile walk to work. I never bothered with makeup or tweaking the hair. I’d either pull it back in a pony tail or pile it on top of my head. It was rare I’d have breakfast other than that cup of tea, though Mum had thrust a piece of toast in my hand on occasion when I was flying out the front door if I was running late. The only thing I took extra care with was earrings.
With most of my friends, it was shoes, clothes or makeup, but after having my ears pierced in 1975 (once was enough thank you), I was always buying earrings.
I had so many pairs, I could wear a different set every day of the month to work, and have a few extra changes over the weekends. I could only wear gold or silver though, but today I can only wear gold. I have a few pairs left, but these days, I’ll stick to one pair for months.

It’s funny that now I don’t have to get up, most days I’m awake around 7, and Hubby has usually been up at least half an hour. On the boat it was the same, and Maggie and I would settle down for at least another hour, she taking up the vacated warm spot.

Blood test later this morning, then a little bit of shopping, then home for lunch. Hubby is looking forward to a cauliflower and broccoli cheese. I shall probably have a tomato bake with some extra veggies. Gotta show willing now as the flapjacks have made their presence known on the scales this morning.

Have a good day 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.

    I used to be crazy about earrings when I was younger. Now I just forget. Hope you have a good day.

    I got my ears pierced at about the same time. I became allergic to the metal and had to swear off the earrings. (I tried all sorts of different things but they never worked.) I just couldn’t bear the oozing and blistered earlobes! Now I never wear earrings but I do have some fancy necklaces and rings!

    • I used TCP and vaseline on mine when I had them done. I opted for sleepers rather than studs and drove my Mum mad ‘twiddling’ them all the time!

    I love when Nitro comes back to bed with me, he’s so warm and cuddly!
    sometimes he wont stay on the bed for long, if he’s too hot!

    • Maggie used to snuggle, and once when we were camping, she got so cold, she got inside Hubby’s sleeping bag, got right down to the bottom then turned round, and stuck her nose out of the top!.
