Gentle walks.

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.

Seeing Tess happy with her visitors and not any worse must have been such a relief for you. Your positive outlook shines again s post, no doubt also helped along by the coffee morning with your friends and upcoming visit from your granddaughter and her family.
Happy New Year to you, too!

I am sure the garden is plenty of exercise for a day or two to let the legs heal.

May you and Tess have a peaceful, happy, and healthy new year! So sorry about the vet visit yesterday, but happy to see such improvement already. Makes the peaceful uneventful days all the more precious, doesn't it! Stay safe and warm as this winter marches on.

A Happy New Year to you and Tess - so pleased that she seems a bit more comfortable today. I too will be going to bed at my usual time, hoping to be asleep before the fireworks are set off. Sweet dreams.

I did stay up and it is almost 2am - just got home but did not want to go to bed without wishing you and Tess a happy 2020.

Happy New Year, Pat. Congratulations for making it to 11 pm. I think I was asleep before 9! Wishing you and Tess a peaceful, safe new year.

The hydro therapy would probably be too much, very small gentle walks and a wander in the garden is going to be more comfortable for the wee soul. Sometimes we push them and don't realise it's too much.

If you have the ability to type quickly, you may consider transcription jobs. You need to have good headphones and the ability to keep up with what is being said. Often, the companies will have their own formatting guidelines. Familiarize yourself with these prior to beginning. Once you have, you can begin transcribing.satta king
