The order of the day here. It has been a lovely quiet, sunny day and Tess and I have had two short walks round the estate. It has done us both good. New Year is not a particularly happy time as it holds so many memories - but it soon passes. Tess is about the same walking-wise but certainly no worse and when the vet rings on Friday with the results of the tests I shall ask what he thinks to enrolling her at the Hydro pool (only a couple of miles away).
Coffee with four friends this morning - a pleasant hour and lots of laughs,although one of the four has worries about two of her dearest and health problems. There is something comforting about sharing worries like this with friends and I hope she gained comfort from us.
Friends called when I got home. S and T had read about Tess on yesterday's post and called round 'sick visiting'. Of course she was delighted to see them and watching her with them I did get the feeling that her movement was a little better with the introduction of the anti inflammatories.
Apart from placing an order with Tesco for Thursday delivery (my grand daughter and her family are coming at the week end) that more or less sums up my day. Now curtains are closed, dog has been fed, scented candle is lit, almost time for the News and a couple of programmes I am looking forward to. Shall I stay up to see the New year in? I doubt it - I can see myself in bed for eleven as usual. But a Very Happy New Year to you all.
