Three days in one.

I have done far too much today.   Now, at a quarter to ten in the evening, having just taken Tess for her last walk round the block, I am really ready for my cup of Horlicks and bed.

As I have said before on here, I am a great one for making Lists and for crossing things off as I do them.   Today was certainly a List Day.  And a very long  List Day at that.   But I managed to do everything on the list before lunchtime and even included an hour sitting with friend E drinking coffee in our usual cafe.  (the other two 'regulars' couldn't come today).

Then it was home for lunch, a shower, a quick walk with the dog and then off to the Physiotherapist for my monthly session.   This always makes me tired but it does me good too.  I didn't return home until after four o'clock - time for tea and another dog walk.   I returned from the Physio to find that Tess had been sick several times, which was a bit worrying but she ate her tea as normal and has been for a walk tonight so I am hoping it isn't a deterioration in her condition.

My new leather jacket came today and I am thrilled to bits with it - it has cheered me up no end on a day which could have resulted in my being rather down at the end of it.   One thing I have learned over the last fifteen months is that one has to keep going and if things seem to be getting a bit fraught - find something to cheer up the situation.   That solution certainly keeps me going.

Weaver, I always read your blog but don't usually comment as so many others already have. But today I am first! Your regular readers are probably all abed by now. You are an inspiration with all your interests and activities. I plan to keep going just like you for as long as I can!

I don't list. I keep an even keel. z

I make a list of jobs for my partner, JL, to do - otherwise he would conveniently forget!

Nice for you to be busy. It's been raining here, and most of my work is outdoors; so I've been a bit lazy. It's raining again this morning. I may go lazy-crazy.

A day that busy flies by quickly. I hope Tess feels well and you had a long and restful night's sleep.

I occasionally scribble a list but then lose it. I know Tess has something serious to worry about but dogs eat gunk which they bring up cheerfully so let it be that...

I'm glad you are pleased with your jacket, I keep getting an image of you dressed as a biker chick!

Congratulations on having finished your long list before lunch! Good to know the new leather jacket has arrived and you're so happy with it. Waiting for pictures! :-)
Hopefully, Tess was just a bit under the weather and her healthy appetite and normal walks mean she's back to normal now.

Glad to hear your leather jacket arrived. Is there a motorbike being delivered tomorrow? :)

I never thought leather jacket wearers drank Horlicks. They used to be refused service in pubs.

It is a pity we don't come fitted with a little meter to tell us when to stop!
Hope Tess is none the worse for her bout of sickness and so pleased you had the leather jacket to lift the spirits.
You should take a day off today and do only those things which give you pleasure. That is an order!!x
I am going to look at my job list now, but doubt I will cross everything of today.
