Today is Friday 18th November

Hubby had a blood test at 8.40 this morning and as expected, his INR is out of range.
The necessary dosage has been calculated and he’ll go back for another next Friday.

We have thus spent the rest of the day putting the finishing touches to the lounge, which included replacing some tiles.
I think I mentioned we had a couple of tilts, but what we didn’t expect was lighter tiles  and one box where the tiles were 2mm short on one side. Hubby was able to use those for the cut edges, and although I noticed two tiles of a lighter shade the day we laid them, we’d both missed two tiles as you come through the door alongside a third that changed colour half way across.
Out of the 80 tiles we purchased, we have about a dozen left over, but half of those are a a different colour. A complaint is going in to the manufacturers, especially as we had ensured all four boxes were of the same batch and colour code.  We don’t expect any compensation as we’ve used them but feel they should be made aware that their quality control let them down in this instance.

We’ve had a juggle of pictures too, and noticed two pieces of one of our puzzles were missing. This set off alarm bells as we hadn’t noticed and I had visions of them having been hoovered up and discarded. Luckily, they had fallen down behind the picture so were retrieved and replaced.

While Hubby was clearing up the bomb site that was our spare bedroom, I took the dog for a walk. She has been so good these past couple of days, she was deserving of some quality time. I did the Kela route but my back was giving me serious trouble by the time I got home. This was nothing to do with her, just the way things are at the moment and I wish my MIR appointment would hurry up and come through. I’ve taken a painkiller and now sitting with my feet up with a cushion behind me. Maya is crashed out on her cushion which is wonderful as she has so much more space.
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 re-arrangement has given Maya the room she needs to stretch out! Quality Control is slipping everywhere!
