Today is Saturday 18th June

It’s official and yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far here in the UK. Temperatures were unbearable for all three of us, but it looks like the weather is due to break. It was 26ºC  (78.8F) in the hall at 4.45 this morning. I let the dog out and there was moisture in the air, so left the door open and opened the bedroom window as wide as it would go. It’s just after 7am now, has dropped to 20ºC (68F) and we have a light drizzle. It’s very welcome.

We bought the news gates yesterday afternoon. We’d measured up and priced materials a little while ago and as Maya’s chest is well above the top when she stands on her hind legs to look over them, we think she could easily clear them if something was of interest enough. Our budget was £160 but we saw some panels that are ideal for the job, much lighter and Maya will be able to see out so might not jump up. Even better, although higher, we can use our existing posts and gate furniture, so just had to buy a new lock.
It’s going to be a cooler today so despite the drizzle, that’s our agenda for the day.

Take care and keep safe everyone.

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.

  1. The break in the weather hasn’t reached us yet, but from the look of the sky, it won’t be long. We really haven’t coped with the heat, so desperate to stand in some rain!
