Dear Diary 10 March 2021

It’s been a funny day, not ha ha but disjointed and foreboding.
I guess the wet weather hasn’t helped. It’s been raining much of the day, but we managed a walk this morning and again this evening. Hubby went out on his own for an hour this afternoon because his legs were hurting and he had to get the circulation going. He got soaked.

We paid our last respects to our friend’s husband at 12.40 then came inside for lunch.
I’ve done a few posts today, but my heart’s not really been in it and I’m suddenly tired.
On our walk on Friday evening, we noticed an ambulance outside the house of one of our doggie owner friends. He has had two strokes in the last six months and we were concerned as the paramedic got quietly in the back and they prepared to drive away.
We hadn’t seen anyone to ask until this evening when we saw his son coming out of his house as they live next door to each other.
We didn’t like to pry, but did ask, and he said he was going to approach us anyway as he recognised us and knew we were friendly with his parents. It was terrible news. His Mum had had a headache all day on Friday and by Saturday, she was gone. It was also their 50th wedding anniversary.
The family are in pieces.

We are beginning to hate this place. It was as a joke we were told it was God’s Waiting Room, but we have seen so much death in our road over the past year or so, we are wondering what the hell it is here that is taking the nicest of people we have come to know.
I have already said how many canine deaths have occurred here, it is well over 20 now as we learned of another last week.

We are both more than a little subdued.

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 am so sorry it’s so hard when loss after loss keeps hitting you. The pandemic, lockdowns and every day really being the same is enough to make us all feel depressed. Sending you both love and hugs 💜💜💜💜
