A Pleasant Monday

A very pleasant day here so far (4.11pm) with sunshine and a light breeze.   Tess and I have walked twice round the estate and also waited in for J, the new dog-walker.   She and Tess took to one another instantly and she is a 'terrier lover' which always helps as terriers are a law unto themselves, as any terrier owner will agree.

They had half an hour communing with one another and are now intending to walk together every Tuesday and Friday - starting tomorrow.   It is a relief that it appears to be going to work out.  I feel it is so important that she gets more stimulation than I am able to give her in just walking round the estate.   She adores friend S who takes her most Wednesdays and now to have two more days again should be so much better for her.  J was surprised to hear of her age, agreeing that she looked so much younger and fitter - long may it continue.

For some reason I had a very bad night's sleep last night so am feeling pretty ragged by this time and so shall not attempt to write any more.   See you tomorrow.

I get those nights, five nights a week Pat, so feel pretty crap most of the time. It also means that I fall asleep in front of the TV any time after 7pm.

So pleased Tess likes her new friend. I hope you sleep better tonight. A good night's sleep makes such a difference to one's day.

Pleased to hear that Tess has a new friend and will get to go on even more walks, that will certainly help to keep her fit and healthy.
Hope you sleep better this night.

Thanks all four of you for hoping I have a better night's sleep tonight.

I am happy for both you and Tess that you have a new person to take her on walks and no doubt she will become a good friend for you both. Tess sounds like such a lovely girl that anyone would love! I hope you sleep well tonight.

Similar weather here today. I was ordered to water Mrs G's new lavender plant which I planted yesterday. I've put it in semi-shade but she's worried it might need more sun. We'll have to wait and see. Nos Da for now and Bore Da for the morning. (welsh - but I'm sure you knew that). Ciao!

Just three hours sleep again last night, another day feeling crap. but at last, it is actually bucketing down with rain here, real heavy rain and cold.

I hope you're now feeling properly rested, though if your weather is anything like ours this morning neither you nor Tess will be venturing far about.
