Today is Monday 13th March

It was lovely and sunny at 7.30, then we had dark skies at 7.40 followed by heavy rain before 8. Aren’t there just days you wish you could stay in bed?
Not so today as I was taking our friend to the surgery for a minor operation on her foot.
We arrived in plenty of time and I said that if she couldn’t walk afterwards to call me and I’d come to her with a wheelchair.

The treatment room was upstairs and she had a plastic shoe guard over her bandaged foot. Typically, the lift was out of order but she said she could manage the stairs. I told her no way and spoke to two staff chatting and asked if we could use the ‘other lift’ which is for staff and behind secured doors. There was no problem and our friend managed to get to the car with little difficulty.

She had some shopping to do as did I so I did that for her and the latest thing missing from the shelves now other than eggs (not ONE in the supermarket) is McVities Digestive Biscuits. You can get either of the chocolate varieties, but plain?
That would be a no.
A different supermarket and I was able to get her a small 225g pack for Β£1.19. What a rip off, but it is one of the few things where she is brand loyal so something I will be on the lookout for when I shop.
She has to go to her own surgery on Wednesday for the dressing to be changed and we are free to take her so that works out very well.


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.

    It’s wonderful to see how you took care of your friend during her minor operation on her foot. It’s heartwarming to know that there are still people out there who are willing to go the extra mile to help others. Your kind gestures and willingness to help are what make this world a better place. Even though the weather wasn’t on your side, you still managed to make sure your friend got the care she needed. It’s also funny how you mentioned the missing item on the supermarket shelves, McVities Digestive Biscuits, and how you managed to find it for your friend. Your attentiveness and consideration for your friend’s preferences are admirable. It’s these small acts of kindness that can make a big difference in someone’s day. Keep up the good work! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜Š

    I remember my mum saying to me when I used to get her shopping; “Don’t forget the biscuits….the good biscuits.” Yes, that Netflix TV advert comes to mind πŸ™‚
