Floss and I are working hard, making space in the greeenhouse for the plants that won’t survive outside in the English winter.
Mostly geraniums, I think, but I take photos of the garden and show them to Mum, she tells me what to bring in and then I go back and we lug in another pot (well, Floss does most of the lugging).
Our early morning dogwalks also continue daily. I have now taken to gently placing undiscovered golf balls that I find in the rough on the green, cheekily next to the flag. I have a theory that I could start WW3 if Donald Trump, Putin and Xi Jinping play golf here because you just wouldn’t know how the ball got there, whose it was and how to play it!
Today’s walk was especially beautiful even though we didn’t see any wildlife today. But we did see a lone golfer in shorts and that is fairly incredible in itself because I am in my winter thermals and I thought I was fairly tough!
It’s been a bit of a day here today. Hard work. A struggle.
But every morning Floss and I take Tedward out for his walk and yesterday a large buck roe deer ran across our path, which was fairly amazing.
He then stopped in the “rough” and looked at us.
After a while the buck vanished into the wood. You can just make out his target bottom.
This morning we didn’t see anyone.
Just the full moon.
Anyway, forgive the useless blog. I am just finding things difficult. The early morning walk is very good for us, especially me at the moment.
Today Pepper and Monster went to see the vet – for different reasons.
Pepper had her second vaccination boosters while Monster was going in for the day – he needed an x-ray as he has chronic asthma. We needed an official diagnosis plus a treatment plan.
Daisy and OH took them in together. Pepper has put on a whole kilo since her last visit, so that’s good. She has discovered food now (everyone’s) and has a very healthy appetite, which is one thing less for me to worry about.
Monster stayed at the vet for the day, starving (we had visions of him eating the entire surgery staff) but apparently he was very good and well-beahved. Pepper happily welcomed her best friend home.
Meanwhile Monster welcomed the thought of his supper, previous breakfast (all two), lunch and tea! He missed them very much.
They are a happy, if odd, little couple.
Daisy also sent me this video. The first thing I said out loud was “that cat is a ruddy saint”!
