New Year's Day

It has been such a quiet day here today, barely a soul has passed my window.   I can only think that everyone had such a celebration last night that they are sleeping it off today.   Me?   I was in bed by eleven o'clock and fast asleep before the New Year arrived.   Time was when I celebrated but not any more.

The weather here for the last two or three days has been beautiful - clear blue skies and brilliant sunshine.   It has, of course, meant frosty mornings but a small price to pay.

Tess is still struggling with her walking.   I am beginning to wonder if she has hurt her front pad.   Friends T and S noticed it when they called to see how she was.   She is constantly licking it.   I have looked at it carefully under a bright light but can see nothing but it does look as though I shall have to visit the vet again shortly unless it improves.   He is set to ring with the results of the blood tests before Friday so I shall speak to him then.

Don't know how you all feel but it will be nice to get this week over and done with and get back to some kind of normality - even if that does mean wintry weather after this unseasonably warm spell.
Until tomorrow.

I have enjoyed today. No pressure to do anything. Next week will not be much different but at least I will know what day it is, probably.

Today has seemed strange to me too. We arrived home yesterday evening and had a very early night - a couple of hours before you! My other half went into town first thing to stock up on food then took part in a New Year fell race after lunch. I just ploughed my way through a mountain of post-holiday washing. I am, however, having a glass or two of fizz tonight in belated celebration of the new year.
I hope that Tess's walking issues are soon sorted out. Best wishes. JC

I shall miss the tree and decorations when they get put away tomorrow but I am feeling ready for some normality and a bit of routine once again.
I hope Tess will be OK. X

Heather said...

It will be good to get back to normal won't it? Although I enjoy putting up a few decorations I always look forward to getting them back in their box and having a good old tidy up.
I shall venture forth to the supermarket tomorrow for some fresh fruit and vegs. I managed to avoid it last week as I was so well catered for.

Bonnie said...

Yes, I too will be glad to get back to whatever "normal" is these days. I hope the year starts out well for both you and Tess!

Such a worry with Tess. Sure she will be fine. Your vet sounds like a good un.

It's at times like this that we wish our pets could talk to us and tell us where they hurt.

Maybe Tess has got a bit of inflamation in her paw - it is hard to keep her off her feet I expect.
Tomorrow I need to get down to doing some jobs in the house, washing, tidying, ironing. Our bin men come tomorrow so I know we will be back to normal - just not sure what day it is. My daughters arrive back from their holiday in Norfolk tomorrow then we will have to figure out a way to get the daughter who lives near Thirsk with the two girls back home again if our car is still at the garage!

How I hope Tess' problem can be resolved soon.

I have a hard time figuring what day it is now. Didn't even know what day my birthday is on.
I love my tree this year Wild Douglas Fir and tiny white lights that is all and beautiful and will miss the snow globes and cards. I usually take down decorations on January 6 Epiphany. We leave the lights up so the Three Kings can find their way. I'm Polish and that is what my Mum always did.
I hope Gud Dug Tess will feel better soon.

Lucy has always had problems with her front paws, they tend to bleed, the vet says it is normal in spaniels. I know she hates our gravel drive, and has a wooden plank for getting to the grass. Also it is the time of year when grit and salt is sprayed on the roads against ice, that could be the problem.

It is good to hear that you all have problems remembering what day it is - hopefully it proves I am not going ga ga. Thanks for calling.
