My day started early with a giggle. Chris Evans played "How much is that doggie in the window?" and Daisy went berserk every time she heard a dog bark - barking back at the radio and trying to find where the dog was - it was so funny - all the more so since she was supposed to be eating her breakfast and just couldn't concentrate!
Today was my monthly hair shearing and so I took the opportunity to nip into Grimsby town centre. One of the by products of retirement is that I spend more time in slippers and need support from some insoles - it was time to get some slippers and insoles to do the job - they are hardly trend setting but very comfortable. Mind you for around £50 for the pair they should be!
Whilst in Grimsby I popped into Home Bargains for some puppy training pads and saw these Peanut Butter Oreos on special offer for 49p. I didn't buy any but seemed to recall that Happymum saw these in the states and we all thought that they were an unusual flavour.
The hairdressers went well - who wouldn't enjoy two hours of peace and solitude reading a book? I am currently reading the bookclub choice - "The Ice Twins". Its about a pair of identical twin girls who have decided to dress identically as well. Their parents can tell them apart by their personality but when one girl dies in a tragic accident, the remaining girl identifies her as A but then claims to be A herself and the parents begin to doubt themselves. All very confusing and quite dark. Its an easy read though - I am nearly halfway through already.
After the weekly shop at Tesco's, it was home via a couple of errands. By now the rain clouds had gathered and late afternoon was drawing close. The dogs mithered for their treat chew and the shopping was put away - all very domesticated.
Tonight I am planning to applique the very last Anni Downs block - with the aim of putting the blocks together over the weekend and attaching the thin trim. Block one of the Lynnette Anderson BOM is going well and I will be trying to finish that block this weekend as well. Mind you I am also hoping to get into the garden but I have heard tell of snow - yikes!!
Dietcokegate - sorry that I have not reported in but midnight tonight sees the end of the week and I can now reveal that not one drop has passed my lips! I have used a small amount of flavoured spring water as a substitute (no aspartame - I checked) and am proud of myself. I am not saying that I will never drink it again but I will keep going and try for a second week.
