Chasing Tuesday

It has been one of those days and to be honest, I have not done very much.
We did our little bit of shopping this morning, but Hubby refuses to pay £12 for a tiny tin of Hammerite paint for the boat so has chosen an alternative ‘finish’ in the three colours he wanted for the same price.
The new sander is OK and has done what it said on the box, so all being well Hubby can start with the painting tomorrow.

It has been beautiful here today. We did a late load of washing and have got that out on the line so hopefully it will dry before the heat goes out of the day.

So to the title of this post………. I have been chasing up things that were due and basically not got very far!!

I rang the breast clinic to find out when I could expect an invitation for my annual mammogram which should be this month following on from my September surgeries. It would appear this has been put back to November and the anniversary of last year’s thanks to Covid delaying the norm. The nurse I spoke to was one I’d spoken to before, but somehow it didn’t feel the same. The recorded message when I initially rang is different, and although I am now officially signed off from their aftercare apart from the mammos, it seems the first port of call is now the GP or in an emergency the NHS 111 service.
OK then, so I shall wait and see what is sent nearer the time and have a direct number to call. If I remember correctly, last year I rang it and was referred back to the breast clinic.

The second chaser of the day was to the water board. We received an email on Sept 1st to say our bill would be on its way soon.
The question is, how soon is ‘soon’ these days? We don’t usually receive a notification that a bill is forthcoming as it is usually received within the first few days of the relevant month (ie. March, June, September and December).
Seems our bill is not actually due now until towards the end of the month, so my phone call may well have thrown a spanner in the works and I might end up with two bills. Oh well, we’ve read the meter and will do so again tomorrow as is the Wednesday norm and at least I know that we are currently on budget for the quarter.

Not much else going on around us at the moment. The schools are back, so town is pretty quiet, but stocks in the shops are low and some of the produce I wouldn’t touch with someone else’s barge pole.

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.

    Sorry you were experiencing a “run around” with appointments and bills. We went grocery shopping Monday and there were only apples and bananas that looked any good! I had hoped to get some cherries or a peach or two but there were none in stock. Makes me wonder where they all are…

    • I’m seriously thinking of sticking to frozen fruit for a while. The bananas I bought three days ago (not the expensive ones which we’ll have one of tomorrow) were rotten half way through.
