Made some serious progress with the raised veggie bed today. Just got to finish the side panels, do some reinforcement and paint it with wood preserver. https://mastodon.org.uk/media/uXWmiujtZ-4svKo9N8k
Spring in Ampfield Woods is quite pretty. 😄 https://mastodon.org.uk/media/JdPaQf21akNebd0N4sg
Working from home today because someone is coming to fix a problem with our heating. I hate almost everything about it, it's just too quiet and communicating with people is a pain! The home office dog is quite nice though... https://mastodon.org.uk/media/ToJuvQ0vAVhxNdVuYPA
This week so far has been brought to you by sleepless nights and expensive vets bills.
Our lovely but severely epileptic cat Oscar has been having a seizure every few hours since Sunday evening. They're very violent grand mal seizures, so take their toll. Fingers crossed he's feeling a bit better now.
Also spent £200 getting the dog's teeth sorted out.
I did NOT need this on my first two days back after being on holiday!
Does anyone find the existence of this mildly ridiculous. How is this even possible? Also it's only about £35!
I may also just be getting old...
Today I've been enjoying the sun. Mowed the lawn. Cleaned my car and now sorting out bits and pieces on it.
The airbag light came on the other day with is an MOT failure (mine is due soon). Turned out to be a loose connector. Fixed with a cable tie. Phew!
Also ordering it a new rear middle seat belt and some non-broken door trim. It is spoiled for a £600 car...
My Dad got it when it was getting chucked out of his office at British Telecom, some time in the late 90s.
I think my Dad may be getting a little sick of dog-sitting.
Got this message today: "Not quite so good with Cookie today. She had a 40 minute walk with Deborah and I this morning but planted herself about half a mile from home this afternoon and I had to be rescued by car. Then she snaffled and ate a frozen fish finger I happened to drop. I think anxiety has given way to cheekiness." 🤣
Just as well we're heading home on Thursday.
Down the rabbit hole we go! https://mastodon.org.uk/media/m1CHkj1Hz3yNzxdKKoQ
When in Rome...well close enough...
Also here's the salad that I made for lunch because when in Rome (well...Italy at least).
Two of these vehicles is suitable for the mountain roads of southern Italy. One of these vehicles is what the hire car company "upgraded" us to. Can you work out which is which?
On a side note, I really want a Piaggio Ape and a classic Fiat 500...
