It has been one of those ‘speed-weeks’ for me. It hardly seems like my last Sunday Musings was posted, and here I am again. The week has passed by in a flash.
My regular routine was disrupted by finally having to get the brakes done on my car. Most of you may have read about what happened, but in case you missed it.
The decluttering (sort-of) came to an end on Tuesday, when the last seven bags of clothes and shoes were dropped off at a local charity shop. We have used four different charity shops over the past couple of weeks, and spread the bounty around different causes. The lady at the last shop was very pleased to receive my donation of clothes and shoes, especially a two-piece suit still in its dry-cleaning bag. Apparently, they rarely get men’s clothing of good quality donated, so she saw that as a real bonus.
Ollie’s medication came to an end, and his fur has still not grown back completely. The last few weeks have seen him sleeping much more than usual, and it is plain to see his age is catching up on him. It will be his tenth birthday next Saturday, and his new toys have already arrived, and been placed out of sight.
The weather changed a lot this week. Strong wind arrived, cold and gusting. Despite above-freezing temperatures all week, that cold wind felt raw when I was out and about. Then last night, we seemed to be in some kind of ‘eye of the storm’, as gales and torrential rain lashed down on Beetley, keeping me awake on and off all night, and causing noises that upset Ollie, and had him barking loudly at 3 am. I had to get up to settle him.
That has passed now, leaving a dull, damp day that is completely uninspiring at the moment.
Our grand-daughter, Maeve, was two years old yesterday. There was a party to celebrate, at a venue in Wymondham. I didn’t go, as it would have meant leaving Ollie for too long. However, I think the noise of 18 very excited small children using a ball pit and soft-play castle was not something I regret missing. 🙂
I hope you all have a good Sunday, and that the weather is much nicer where you are.
