Beautiful snow Dacha. I wish we got proper weather like that rather than the poor efforts that just make the place look mucky.

Glenys: good luck with your diagnosis. Diabetes can be so well managed if you stick to the diet carefully.

I can only find nonsense on the television so the hound and I have retreated to bed to listen to the radio. I don't seem to have the attention for books at the moment.

Hosta; I do love watching Spikeys. Ours seem to have disappeared. Unfortunately I've seen many on the road as a pancake impersonators so I am not holding out much hope.

It's been raining all day here Hosta. Not enough to give everything a cleansing soak (if only car cleaning worked like that) just enough to stop us doing anything outside.

Morning all. Late start here.

Clari - will your OH have time to view the Autumn colour that is so spectacular in Japan? If I ever go to Japan, I would try to time it for either Cherry Blossom or Autumn leaves.

See original post

 I doubt it unfortunately. Last time his holiday photos consisted of a shop that sold bluetooth electric toilets that he found at the train station.

Hi Lyn and Clari. It’ll feel strange for a while Clari, but at least it should be easier with only one dog.

See original post

 Pat; fortunately I didn't find the extra dog any more difficult even with her meds etc. Both dogs are quite laid back which helped and we've plenty of space in both the house and garden for them to get up to mischief.

I think Reggie is feeling a little lost now!

Morning all. we've gone from two people and two dogs to one person one dog.

Our doggy guest has gone home all in one piece and no doubt sick of the sight of grass and now my OH is off to Japan for work. I think the house is going to feel rather quiet! 

Have I missed much This week?

Did someone mention vodka?

The hounds have had their final walk; I think we've mastered the art of balancing a 3 year old and a 14 year old with the aid of a spare lead around my waist to attach the older dog too to keep a hand spare. We just have to hope there is no cat interaction.

Today the day and night was perfectly balanced. It's all down here for us til spring.

Ob; supper time is 18:00 for our guest. Her body is like some hilarious alarm clock based entirely on her next meal so I don't think we'll be snoozing much longer.

I'm not one for clothes shopping; have been known to have tantrums and cry in Mc Donald toilet just getting simple things like new jeans.

Pat: disconnect the phone!! He'll be no good to anyone if he doesn't rest.

Left the hounds home alone for a little while to see how they'd get on: I don't think either moved an inch. They're now spark out in the lounge: hard life!

I've got some exciting news for my office team tomorrow. It's a long time coming but it is going to be a hellish 5 days while I get everything in place.

Anyone for another mug of tea?

Hosta: I've always found it ridiculous that the rules state, Normally, a 20 minute break for six hours worked but never have a rolling
