Catch up

Hi all, I am sorry not to have got  back and thanked you all for your comments, but I have had a very busy couple of days. First, the show was good, the weather being much better than forecast, one little shower with the rest od the day a mixture of warm when the sun came out, to chilly and gusty at other times, but it was bearable. I got up at 4.45 am arrived at the show 7.45 am and home and judged around 35 dogs, a long and tiring day.  For anyone who doesn’t know i judge competition obedience, not breed, The dog’s intelligence not how it looks. , that’s my last appointment this year, thankfully, i do admit to getting tired especially the next day, gone are the days when I would go out clubbing when I got home. !

Sunday morning I hoped to catch up neglected garden chores, when my daughter phoned inviting me to a latish lunch, I do enjoy Jason’s cooking, so wouldn’t refuse.   A friend of Karen’s was also invited, and afterwards we took the dogs for a walk, Karen has 4, Sue her friend has 5, I’ve got 2 + got barney for a week, we met up with other friends, Dot and Fay and there dogs another 5, so that made 17 dogs in total, all getting on and having a whale of a time. I d wish I’d had the camera.

When we got back to Karen’s we decided to play on the Wii it was beat music  John Travolta style, you have to keep time and mime to the figure on the screen, gaining points, My 13yr grand daughter challenged me, and I beat her twice, Smile she was not pleased Smile typical teenager. bless.

I had an embarrassing moment on Monday when I was at the doctor for physio,

I  wanted to use the loo  which is just off the waiting room [only disabled or gents], there was no light, so Ire- opened the door to check where the 'throne' was, and did the necessary, saw a cord dangle which I thought was a light, pulled it, it was an alarm! ee-aw, ee-aw, next minute someone was banging on the door, and a red light flashing . ,  you never saw panties and trousers come up so quick, I came out red faced to a sea of smirks and enquiring looks, you never saw such a quick exit to the car park .

Hope to catch up with some of you soon.

Till I can, Thanks for now


  1. I had a similar thing happen to me when Jim was in the hospital. All of the restrooms have a cord to pull that turns on a red light at the nurses station. Somehow I got my arm just the right way to pull the cord. No siren or anything, just a red light at the nurse's station.

    Sounds like the dog walk was fun.

  2. Now that's a lot of dogs. I would have been so tangled. I always had enough trouble with one when we had a dog, :). Ah! Life's little embarrasing moments are what makes us human.

  3. Sounds like a fun day at the doctors for physio. I had the same thing happen in the hospital, but I didn't give a dam. I just said sorry.

  4. Back in the days of my misspent (single) youth I would get off work, grab a quick shower and bite to eat then hit the bars and clubs sometimes being astounded when I walked out the door in the morning and the sun was up. Home to change clothes and head to work and do it all over again that night. There was a time when I only managed 20 hours of sleep in an entire week. Once on deployment to Haifa I didn't sleep at all for the entire 5 days we were there! Not these days!

  5. Hi Arlene easing my way back after my visit from my sister. Seems you had a good d ay at the dog walk. Oh you made me laugh about light pulled on the emergency string. Enjoy your weekend. Sheila and Wile-e xx:)
