Today is Wednesday 6th July

I’ve been up a few hours and it’s surprising what’s going on in our road between 4.30 and 6am.
Gru, he of the cheekiness using our neighbour’s bin for his garden waste a little while ago, walks his dog between 5 and 5.30. No doubt he has left the animal’s calling card where it fell as he never clears up, which is probably why he walks it so early. He hasn’t used our neighbour’s bin since I ‘caught’ him, but she doesn’t put that one out so early now as she’s an early riser and has plenty of time before the truck comes.
There are other dog walkers too, including Jack, the JRT we looked after last year when his owner’s wife passed away and I was asked if I could look after him on the day of the funeral.

He doesn’t quite know what to make of Maya. Still, the dog biscuit he buried in the garden is ‘safe’ as it’s been buried in concrete to stop her eating the stones.

We had a small shower around 6, but it didn’t come to anything, not even enough to dampen the grass, and it’s a lot cooler today.

A couple of guys have gone out to collect their morning paper, and another has an early walk on the prom before he starts his day as a driver. We’ve met up with him a couple of times when we’ve been early taking Maya up for her first walk. It’s 7.30 now and Hubby is still in bed as it was my turn to do the early shift.

Hopefully we should be able to collect our meds today. We put our order in last Friday and although the screen said they would be ready in two working days, we’ve given them four, but I shall still ring first. They do not appear to be that efficient to be honest. The shop is small and badly designed, with just one counter which deals with both sales and prescriptions. I was waiting in a queue of four people for almost half an hour once.

Have a good day. Keep safe and take care 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.

    I hope your meds are ready this time.

    • Thanks Lauren. The last couple of times we’ve rung to be told the prescription hadn’t been received until we pointed out it had been sent as an emergency from our surgery the day before. Surprise, somewhere else they could look and it hadn’t been downloaded. We shall no doubt soon see.

    Some people (I shake my head in wonderment)… I’m happy that Mochi is not an early riser… She’d sleep to 9 or 10 AM id we let her!

    • Oh how I envy you! It was 5am this morning, so that was ‘late’ for her. Hopefully when the winter comes, she’ll sleep later (please……………)
