The day has got away from me what with one thing and another, but it has been a good day!
After breakfast, I took Kela for a walk round the block, then left her at home with Hubby who was waiting for a phone call. I walked up to town and bought a large tarpaulin for the back of the car to protect the upholstery under Kela’s quilt ready for when we have to take her out. I also got a night light for the bedroom so that she can see where she’s going, though last night she settled under the window for the majority of the night until around 7 this morning.
From there I went to put some credit on my phone as our calls to the surgery yesterday set me back almost £7!
I needed fruit having used the last of my blueberries and strawberries in my smoothie this morning, so went into the local Lidl. The car park was practically empty and the shop itself not too busy so I picked up more strawberries, four greenish bananas and some grapes.
Hubby had a prescription to collect, so as I was practically at the surgery pharmacy, I wandered down to get that and also the one that the doctor has sent electronically this morning. The girl retrieved it and filled it there and then, so nothing is outstanding.
Then I walked home.
It started to rain so I took shelter in the bus station as I didn’t have a coat, making friends with a 12 month old border collie bitch until it stopped. Hubby rang to ask if I wanted him to pick me up and I said there was no need as the rain was easing off and I’d be home soon.
I started off again and got home just after 11 o’clock, and had just emptied the shopping bags when the skies opened. What a deluge!! I would have been a drowned rat if I got caught in that lot! In total, I guess I’ve walked about 5 miles so far today, and we shall be walking Kela tonight as usual.
Pictures taken with my phone last night………. I found the zoom control!!!
Last night we let her take the lead sotospeak, and she led us into the park and across the car park. From there it was up on the prom and turning in the opposite direction, left by the cafe and back through the park to home. Speaking to her owner this morning, that is the usual evening route.
Kela didn’t eat very much yesterday so having checked it was OK, I put some boiled chicken and rice in with her dinner today. She didn’t eat it all, but did eat most of it, so that’s a good sign. The heat is likely to be affecting her appetite as it did Maggie, but her pain meds probably have something to do with it too. She’s outside lying on the drive fast asleep at the moment.
