Today is Tuesday 8th June

It is early afternoon on a hot sunny day and we have had stew for lunch. That may seem a little strange, but we’ve had five consecutive days of solid food and Hubby found yesterday’s meal a little hard going, so we thought time for three days of softer stuff.

We walked up into town this morning, and it was very quiet. We managed to find a collapsible stool which seems to be the right height to act as a foot stool for me to keep my legs up. We shall see how things pan out. If it doesn’t work, it will still come in handy as I can stand on it for those annoying things on the top shelf I can’t reach otherwise!
No ants in the kitchen this morning I’m pleased to report.

We walked back through the park and the greylag goose has hatched a family of five goslings. Two of the babies have orange beaks.
The main car park was almost full by now, but the one at the other end of the park only had about a dozen cars in it.

We’re not doing very much today as it’s too hot. We had hoped for some rain yesterday but it didn’t happen, so we are watering the garden in the evening so that the plants get the benefit of the moisture before it evaporates off. Things are looking very promising.

Have a good day everyone, and keep safe.


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.

  4. Glad to know that your house is ant-free now. The goslings are so cute! Great pictures, Di

    • Spoke too soon………. some more ants were coming in so we’ve had the hall carpet up, sealed under the threshold, and puffed with powder. We’ve put ant bait traps down where we saw them outside and just hope they take the stuff back to the nest and get rid of them that way. I hate disturbing nature, but we don’t want them in the house.

    Ants are evil! As for the goslings, they are very cute! I hope they manage to keep them safe!

    • The gosling broods here have been numerous and very successful. Not so with the ducklings, yet we aren’t seeing very many ducks at the moment.
