Last night, Ted and I went to bed at 20.30. I make no excuse for this – I was utterly exhausted and definitely asleep by 21.00.
This resulted in me waking early this morning so, as it was getting late, lighter and I couldn’t procrastinate any longer, I took Ted out for his usual walk on my own.
It was very cold and there had been quite a frost overnight.
The dog walk used to be Floss’ job and I am missing her more than anything. She did everything for me and my life was relatively easy, I now realise and was possibly not nearly grateful enough.
I have put notes all around the house reminding me to do various essential and instantly forgettable things so hopefully I will stay on top of everything.
It was a nice walk – a few deer in the distance and lone golf ball.
I am sure Ted and I will quickly fall into a routine together. Before, Ted had been Floss’ perogative so it’s just him and me from now on.
He has a lovely Winning Smile so I think is happy with his set-up.
