T’is a quiet evening spent by myself and two of the pups – quiet if you don’t count the fan of the air conditioner and the odd creak coming from downstairs.
I managed to shower, beautify my feet AND wash my hair in one day! I’m exhausted. O the neuropathic pain never lets up. It’s like a fire that alternates between smouldering and blazing. My stiff back feels like its fusing into one bone with the ever present blade of the knife stuck horizontally in its lower regions.
My dogs brings me a lot of companionship. Tonight, it’s peaceful: Oscar sleeping to my right; and, Twiglet, his son, sleeping in the middle of both my legs.
Just looking at them makes me smile.
I bought a secondhand book off Amazon, recently, called Women + Dogs by Judith Watt and Peter Dyer. It’s filled with photography of famous women (actors, singers, writers, artists, athletes etc.) together with their dog/s. The opposing page offers a mini biography of the woman and beast/s. It’s quite fun reading.
I also managed to do some admin work (I’m always behind), then take Chester for a jog. I ride the mobility scooter on top speed, trying to miss the loose stones and pot holes and speed humps on my road, whilst Chester runs alongside me. We also dodge the big cars. When they pass she gives them a good telling off as only a Jack Russell can!
Tomorrow, I’m getting bath rails fitted so I can hopefully properly bath again. My body will thank me for the warm soak with Dead Sea bath salts. Showers are too dangerous with all that balancing and standing.
Tomorrow, let’s hope for more sunshine and happy moments.
Thank you for dropping by 🙂 I will pay you a visit soon 😀
