It did not stop raining today and it would of been really miserable had it not been for the fact that I was visiting my sister in law who is not my sister in law any more for she is no longer married to my husbands brother! That not withstanding I have been friends with her girl and woman for 47yrs. Yes I was thirteen and she was fifteen, when we first met. Both of us sitting on the 97 bus not sure whether or not to talk, Then when we both got off at the same bus stop and started walking in the same direction we broke the ice.
We have been solid since, I like to think we are more like sister even though the in law title is now debunked. We have been through thick and thin and weathered some nasty storms!
Talking of storms , today was wet! So we stayed in the warm and drank coffee, had parsnip soup for dinner and chatted about all sorts. Our children, grandchildren …( my first grandchild as yet unborn, D already has one ) husbands, houses, my son’s new home, her daughters job, her granddaughters triumphs. Of course we talked of the dogs the beautiful dogs.
The dogs have two beds in the kitchen dining room. They take up a lot of room! One bed ( a huge bed large enough for them both ) fills an alcove. The only trouble is that one dog , the younger one always insists on laying on top of the older dog. So D hit on a brilliant idea, get the husband to put a separator down the center of the bed ….. each dog then could have his own space and the extra bed could be removed !
Well they were not too sure at first but no one likes change do they?
So after a while they settled down and after their duvets and cushions went in, all was looking cosy!
So we thought , we turned back to our photos and our coffee and time ticked on. The dogs were happy, the dogs were comfortable , the dogs seemed very quiet and settled ! Job done, well done to D’s hubby the problem of the younger dog flattening the older was solved!
Well it was wasn’t it…………………… er? not it was not!
Nope, no it was not! It just goes to show you just cannot help those who will not be helped! You also cannot teach a cheeky dog new tricks.
The time came for me to go home. It was dark t was wet and it was actually flooded! I have not had the pleasure of driving through flooded roads before ! I did not like it but I remembered my husbands words of advice and I got through and after what seemed an age I got home safely.
So it was wet cold and windy in the real world today but I was happy!
