Project 365 week 15

Sunday

DD2 had planned on going home today but she had been up all night with D&V and could not get out of the bathroom long enough to do anything. I knew she would not cope with Ziggy and I have to be at work at 8am. Granddad does not do nappies, feeding or crying toddlers so I made myself very popular by phoning DD1 at 7.30 am to ask her if she could come and get Ziggy before her hubby went to work at 8am and keep her until I got home. I did not have overtime so knew I would be back in the afternoon. DD1 was at a birthday party with the kids so she just took Ziggy with her as well and I picked her up afterwards.





Monday

DD2 felt better and was going home. She took Ziggy and the dog for a walk to tire the two of them out, fed Ziggy lunch and then headed home hoping Ziggy would sleep for most of the journey. They brought me some daffodils before they left.

We went for a two hour walk down the woods with Dixie.





Tuesday

A few bits and pieces to do in the morning, then home and out with the dog for a walk. She was loving running up and down the hills. Spot the orange harness - easier than trying to see the dog in the brown leaves.





Wednesday

We had to go to Stirling to visit DS1, not been since before Christmas due to various factors. Asked Fifi to come and sit in the house as did not want Dixie dog left as we have never left her before and we are away from home for approximately six hours which was far to long. Fifi had some baking to do for Thursday so she just did it while she was here.






Thursday

Hubby had an appointment for his bloods for his diabetes. It was a dry and sunny if cold day so we took Dixie for a walk round a local park, then did some shopping and went along the river on the way home. Dixie encountered her first squirrels in the park today. She is really enjoying being sociable with people and other dogs we meet.
 We walked for about 3 hrs today.




Friday

Some of you will have heard of Steven Brown art, he is based in Ayr and today was the launch day for his first book. Book not written by him but based on his characters. He was having a launch at the shop with the author in reading to the children and he was signing the books for you as well. DD1 had wanted a copy for the kids so I said I would pop along for her as I was in the town anyway. The queue was out the door and round the shop and taking over an hour to get to the front of the queue, decided not to bother waiting.




Saturday

My advancing age is showing in many different ways. one of them being that the weight of my laptop sitting on my legs is making my knee and my hips sore. So I bought an overbed tray to use on my chair, making life a lot less painful.





I still have 4 competitions running, No 1 only until tomorrow but feel free and enter them while you are here.

  1. Your new laptop tray looks very useful. I might need to invest in one too. The dog in the woods is well blended with the landscape. Hope the blood tests went well. How lovely to have a family around who might help when necessary. I wish my Mum lived nearby, I miss her so much.

  2. Ahh! It must have been sad to see your daughter & Ziggy leave....I'm glad she was feeling better.
    It sounds like you have done so much walking.
    The laptop tray looks a great idea. I could quite fancy one of those.

    1. Not sure if it was something she ate or a 24 hr bug.

  5. Love the squirrel shot and the colourful coo. I’ve just seen someone paint rocks like that and didn’t realise that it was based on artwork. Hope the diabetes bloods went ok!

  6. Great photo of the squirrel. It's good that DD1 was able to help out with Ziggy. My son recently bought a Steven Brown print for his room.

    1. Steven does a lot of amazing stuff and he is popular all over. A lovely man that finds the time to talk to people in the shop and interacts with the kids when they are in. Done a lot for the town including Christmas lights last year.

  8. I have a similar tray to ease the pain on my neck but I do most of my laptop stuff standing up by putting it on the ironing board. Hope your daughter is better now and those cakes Wifi made look lovely
