I know … I know … I really shouldn’t moan about something that is totally out of my control.
I wouldn’t even mind if we got full days of rain (like yesterday) and then full days of sunshine (like … when?).
Take today for example.
I went for a walk with Coco and Maeve about an hour ago … sunny and warm … lovely.
Just as we got home it bucketed down … I think it might have stopped now.
’tis a bit of a misery sometimes.
I really enjoy the teeny tiny moments of sunshine we get as I can then take Coco for a walk.
On Saturday I took her down to the lock and watched her be very nervous around the water … she is soooo not a water dog.
I walked onto the steel bridge and she went ballistic barking … she hates it when she can’t go where I am.
As soon as she saw me coming back she lay down and waited happily.
Maeve is great with Coco and I think she’s very brave around such a big dog.
Coco runs at a huge pace and Maeve always stays still.
I took a couple of photos of them both … and in the year since I’ve had Coco both Maeve and the dog have grown.
Maeve took all these shots … it’s fun to have some photos of me and Coco together … me looking windswept … Coco looking fab.
We also noticed that the level of the canal has gone over the actual gates so there were Waterways Ireland men trying to sort the electrics for the gate so it would open … there’s always the option of buckets guys.
My big plan for this week is to totally tidy and clean the cottage for Mary’s visit on Friday.
I had a skype vidcam call with her this morning and she actually said she’d love to help me clean (sick or what?).
I told her that if she saw the state of the cottage right now … she’d fall into a coma for the rest of her visit.
As it is … I told her that I’ll probably be cleaning for 4 days and she’ll come into the cottage and say something like ‘ Don’t worry … another few hours and we’ll have it ship shape’.
Have to think of a pile of rewards for all this effort … all suggestions will be taken on board.
And if someone says ‘ah Liz … the inner satisfaction of seeing the cottage spick and span will be it’s own reward … ‘
I’ll hunt you down!
I hope there are many fab and delightful moments in your week.
