Today is Thursday 31st March

The last day of March, and a quarter of the year is now over.
The weather is a mixed bag of hail, sleet, sunshine and a bitter wind.
Six weeks from today, I shall officially be an OAP. Time presses on and waits for no-one.

Another good night with Maya on her new bed, and although she got up around 2am, she settled again and slept until 5.20. I got up to let her out, but Hubby was awake so did it as it has been so windy in the night. We lost our garden hose reel which lay forlorn in the middle of the lawn last night when Maya went out for her final wee and intrigued her, and this morning our empty buckets had migrated from beside the shed to the greenhouse, so they had actually been carried over the fence in the wind.
I got a blanket and we all settled in the lounge for another couple of hours, so our day started just after 7.30. Not bad at all.

After breakfast, I walked Maya on her new lead. I’d tried it out yesterday and it was a vast improvement.
She has no option but to walk alongside me, so my arm is not being stretched or yanked if she pulls, yet it’s long enough for her to sit at the kerb or sniff. She also can’t walk across me.
Our walk this morning was on a different route as from the end of our road to the doggy bin is nothing but a mass of distributed dog mess. There is another doggy bin here on our estate so I went that way and the pavements were clear. Later walking Kela on a different loop on the estate, any mess was at least on the grass, so we have a choice.

Our friend is doing well and resting up. I went into town to get her a pill box with four sections in it and dropped that off, hence walking Kela for her this morning.
The market has been cancelled today because of the high winds, so it is only the meat van there and he’s parked up on the pavement leaving the road open.

Simple lunch of sausage, mash and beans today.
Take care 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! 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.

    Glad the new lead is working well! It is just above freezing here and we are getting a very cold rain with gusty winds as befits the end of March!
