One step forward…

After last week’s lament that nothing was happening it’s been a busy and fairly productive week.

Skye is going to be walked once a week every week for 3 months by a friend’s daughter as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Award challenges. Having someone to hold her lead while I walked with Tilly was lovely and although the limp is still there I managed to walk to the park and back without too much discomfort.Skye’s cough and cold have almost gone and she is much happier. Nino is still a confused little chap, he does have odd moments of clarity when his personality shines through and they are very much appreciated, like the sun shining from behind a cloud. I sorted out some photos earlier today and couldn’t help smiling at this one taken last summer


He looks particularly content sitting in the sunshine having his chest rubbed …he is much less sociable these days and rarely wants any sort of contact from either people or dogs.

My Venofer treatment is over for now so my Thursdays will no longer be spent feeling sick, the final treatment was better than the others as the Venofer was run in more slowly and I had worked in the morning so was able to come home and rest.

We have found an alternative tiler who will be putting the tiles on the wall behind the cooker next Saturday.The flooring has finally arrived and will be laid in the kitchen and hall next week. The floors have to be screeded first which will be interesting as the hall and kitchen are the main artery through the house but cannot be walked on for 3-4 hours once the screeding is done.

One roller blind is fitted, the other is a tiny weeny bit too long to fit but my son thinks he can alter the bracket to fit so I am having to be patient.

So the kitchen is getting back on track, I’m looking forward to seeing the tiles in place and having the flooring will be wonderful after weeks of concrete and asphalt.

  1. I had no idea that you were having health issues. I’m glad that you’re doing better. Is that your son in the picture? What a cutie!! Can’t wait to see the finished kitchen. Take care and keep blogging!!!
