We decided to have a field trip this morning and have replaced our bathmat which was beginning to hum rather than sing in the shower. We’d washed it in the machine before bu it didn’t spin that well and took ages to dry outside. It also looked rather tired.
Having parked at the top end of town, Maya had a good walk and we treated ourselves to a cooked breakfast, of course sharing our sausage and bacon.
She was introduced to a maltese cross poodle puppy which was about the size of her snout, and didn’t quite know what to do with it. It was a plucky little thing and we had to be careful she didn’t bounce on it in play, but the owner was lovely and the dogs were OK with each other.
We went in to see our friend in the essential oil shop, getting some more tea tree oil for Maya’s cream mix as she still has the occasional flare up of eczema if we’re not careful about not letting her sit on grass, even in our garden.
Town wasn’t too busy and they were putting up the Christmas decorations in the pedestrianized precinct using a cherry picker.
Maya was fascinated and sat down to watch.
There are a lot of empty premises now, and two adjoining shops seem to be in the process of being outfitted as one. Time will tell.
I did some shopping and another hike has occurred, this being the 500g of dried apricots we had been buying to go on our cereal/porridge in the mornings. They were £2.19, then went up to £2.29 which is what they have been for a while. They are now £2.65 so we shall not be buying them as often, just like everything else really.
We added 2 more potatoes (42p) to our stew so it will do another 2 days after today now.
Maya has been spoilt with bacon and sausage and turned her nose up at her dinner, even though I crumbled some cheese into it. Oh well, when she’s hungry, she’ll eat.
