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.
