The reason being that my daughter and family are on their way to Singapore on the first (11 hours!) leg of the journey home x The house is empty .... quiet ... and tidy ! Sigh xx I will see them on Skype .. but wont be able to touch or hug them for a long time .... I have been looking at pictures and remembering the happy month that has JUST FLOWN away ...
BUT being D..D..and D just wears you out .. and if we look hard enough the silver lining does shine through xx
FIRST .. I had a long and chatty call on Skype with my middle grandson in Perth, Western Australia
SECOND .. the Postman brought me ...a little bit of sunshine ..
....well there was a sale and I had a coupon .. what more is there to say? lol x
THIRD.. well I have to explain the back ground to this ... SAM has a rough, thick coat that keeps him warm and dry in all weather. I have a BIG coat that keeps me warm dry and snug. GUS.. has a short coat that ..yes.. lets in the cold and rain.. the weather at the moment is AWFUL.. and a train of thought was set in motion x In 2008 (the receipt was in the bag!) I bought Gus a coat.. he never wore it because he growled snapped and REFUSED to have anything to do with it... TODAY I was taking NO prisoners!
It was put on .. at risk of life and limb.. both of us!...
OH ! I have been laughing for hours over this x I had to DRAG him out of the house and up the street.. I think he was embarrassed to be seen in public ! He-He x
He tried to shake it off.. AND he scrapped it on everything he could! It has cheered me up no end xx When we left mum and dads bungalow he had to be dragged again xx lol x I think the gentle shush-shush as he walks soothed him eventually though ..
Gotta love him xx... he has done his bit to cheer me up.. and so he had an extra biscuit when we got home x
Hope you have found something to keep you feeling cheerful to-day xx
