This is an update of how we are doing without Her Maj.
Well, our lives are pretty empty. There is a big yawning gap. Myself, I see her everywhere or at least I expect to see her. A level of sound (and smell) is not there (the tippy tappy of claws on the kitchen floor, the bash of the door when she wanted to be let in, the barking at all intruders), the snoring. We all miss her more than words.
Monster is very odd now. He is lonely and sits mainly on her blanket. There is one in Daisy’s room too which he loves.
Monster is not very communicative with us at the moment.
He just wants his quiet time – though it might be because he is eating at least a rabbit a day.
(He does love BeAnne’s special blankie, though).
He is also spreading outward more.
As is his fur.
And so I occupy my days with making sheep, trying to go for a walk, riding, doing stuff and taking photos. I have little enthusiasm at the moment for my photography. Everything is an effort and there is no fun because I don’t have my constant companion shuffling about with me. She was always with me.
I took this on one of my late evening walks, just as the sun was thinking about going down, around 9.30 pm.
I don’t really have any plans – such a large part of my life has gone. I am existing at the moment rather than living.
