Mostly Good?

No rain today and it has been quite mild … so that was good.

Pup has had an excellent day with very little mouthing and only 2 indoor piddles … so that was good.

The pooch love in on the sofa has got to licking ears (which was tolerated) and sly nips at ears (which was less appreciated) … so that was mostly good.

I got a gift token for the supermarket which is for my Christmas dinner and my daughter might be coming to visit for Christmas … so that was all good

My complaint was hand delivered to the bank … but I heard nothing from them – the envelope was marked as urgent!

But generally I have had a mostly good day.  I didn’t feel as rough as yesterday and we had fun with housework … no seriously we did.  Pup watched me steam cleaning and hoovering; he assisted me in a little DIY task (he has a different dictionary to mine – assisted = got under my feet and stuck his nose in places it didn’t belong); he watched me dry mop to collect up all his junk modelling … with occasional sudden darts into the pile to grab something back he hasn’t finished with; Dog and Pup supervised me shaking out the smelly big dog bed; then Pup’s favourite bit – the dustpan and brush – it turned in to a wrestling match and I needed two pairs of hands really!  Fortunately all that housework tired Pup out so I got to wet mop and scrub the slate kitchen floor on my own and get the floors all safely dry for his next burst of energy.

My daughter asked about Pup's size so I thought a puppy height 'record' might be useful!

So everything was not bad and I was feeling much better and Toxic wanted to pop along and meet Pup.  I texted to ask what was happening and he said he was washing the car … I asked directly “are you visiting with Pup today?” … silence.  The silence dragged on for 4 hours and then a short phone call to “explain”.  I have suggested he needs to go have a long think and sort his life out … because I do not need the additional stress.

Unlike three months ago when he refused to talk to me about what was on his mind and I challenged myself to walk along a cliff path I am a bit stuck for doing daft scary stuff when I am stuck at home with Pup and no funds.  Today after he has blurted out his ‘secret’ he couldn’t share. I am in need of a serenity boost … I don’t see any windy days due so it won’t be a kite flight that helps … perhaps tomorrow I need to leave the pooches here and go for  a walk with the camera … right now maybe sleep will help.

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
