I Had a Lovely Day
I cannot remember the last time my birthday has been such an enjoyable day; thank you again to each of you who contributed to that.
The most fun of the day, if I am honest, was the Postie’s visit. We have several different posties and this week happens to be the turn of Mr Grumps. Mr G wears his bluetooth headset and plays the music loud in his van oh and he clearly does not like dogs. When the female posties have to come her the boys get fussed over when it is Mr G;s turn h firstly tries really hard to push everything through the letterbox only resorting to knocking if he has no choice.
This morning he had to knock the door. Pup likes to get there first, Dog likes to get there first too and I end up tripping over both of them while the peer out of the window to see who it is. Yes I know I could train them not to do this but actually I like them to make themselves known and visible to callers; anyone who has less good intentions takes a clear step back as the top half of the stable door opens and two furry faces come forward! So there we are, Mt G outside already standing back; Pup and Dog at the door and me behind them.
I open the door with a cheery good morning, thank you as the mail is tentatively passed to me over two doggy heads. He is caught out everytime and forced to wish me “good morning ” in return … I will get him to smile when he says it – it just might take me another 5 years! Sorry I know it is mean to taunt naturally miserable people but hey it’s my birthday why can’t he be nice?
Next up was the dog walk … what a mess! This is litter blown by the strong winds we have had from a construction site. If I owned that site my staff would be down the site collecting our rubbish before it got onto someone else’s land.
And no that isn’t loo roll! It is a sort of fabric strip that was holding bundles of material together.
After that I set off for a site meeting at the building I would like to have for Project Tick Tock. It was everything I expected and so I can move on to the next stage which will be about plans and costs.
A really excellent day and only one fly in the ointment … normally I wouldn’t waste the energy swatting a fly but if I leave it as is then I will appear incompetent! and anyway it is my birthday so I have an excuse …
I had a lovely day and I am finishing it with a big smile on my face …
