It’s 6.30 in the evening and the day is almost over.
We had a field trip this morning to return our diffuser which had stopped working yesterday. There was no problem with that at all and the new one has been doing its calming thing on Maya as she is snoring softly.

She wasn’t too bad in town but again a lot was going on. When we were in the oils shop though, she lay down on the floor and was very well behaved, again we think because of the calming effect the blended oils are having on her.
Hubby washed her belly this morning and there is very little trace of the eczema now. There are two patches that were really bad, but they are clean and just a little ‘too pink’, but at least she is not scratching or nibbling at herself. The tea tree and lavender cream is wonderful and she seems much more comfortable.
We did a little bit of shopping after having a trial of a journey into town as they are putting in a pavement and the tail back was over three miles when we joined it. Further up, they will be closing the road again from Monday, this time for three weeks, having only opened it in April following resurfacing which took 14 months! Luckily we have some local knowledge so can by-pass the major bottlenecks.
We had our water bill today and I was a penny out in my calculations. I don’t know what calendar they are using for quarterly billing purposes, but this one had 113 days and the last only 75. Still, my trusty spreadsheet shows we are still within budget for the year so I’m not complaining.
