5yrs 2wks giant holes and stuff

Apologies for being quiet for a couple of weeks, in these lockdown times, well my life has been even more dull than usual, no nice meals in fancy restaurants, trips the length and breadth of England to visit people, my world has shrunk to our home and my once a week trip to Costco for 16 litres of diet cola.

Things have happened here at home, we had permission from the tenant next door and had a contractor in to bring the hedge in the garden down to an acceptable height and reduce the weight on the other side so it wasn't leaning into their garden.

We've had a big hole filled with water just in front of our driveway from a damaged water pipe for a few weeks now, we had contractors out yesterday to dig down to the pipe, make the repair and fill the hole in.

Michelle is back walking the dogs in the mornings 3 days a week - they absolutely love this, they both get 30 minutes each at the moment individually while they get used to walking with her, the goal in eventually they'll get an hour together once Michelle is confident the little darlings (buggers) will actually behave themselves.

This is how small my world has become, something 'exciting' happened this morning - I 'rescued' Winston from something awful and scary - he'd jumped into the bathtub (don't ask me why this is a fun game) except it had just been used - it was wet and he was trapped in there. Okay I'm sad but here are the pictures just because in his extreme distress at being trapped he also looks dead cute.




It looks like our cleaner can also return in a couple of weeks time - now THIS will make a difference in our lives, not bitching at each other about who should be doing what and when and because V is here we can actually leave the house - TOGETHER - Something we haven't done since March 8th. I have no idea what we will do, where we would go, but to be fair sitting together in the car in the queue at the Costa Drive-Thru would be 'exciting' after this long.

I've had swollen ankles (we think from the heat) I've been in to the doctors for a quick blood test to check thyroid TSH levels and kidney function just incase - my TSH is 1.2 for May - YAY I hear you say - but no - apparently at the ripe old age of 48 and in the menopause 1.2 is 'a bit high' for someone my age just under 1 would be more what I need to be aiming for - who knew it came it an 'age scale' on top of the normal ranges? Not me this is new. I presume that means 'tinkering' with my Levothroxine levels again to try and bring it down a little.

So anyway life goes on, I hope you're making the best you can of this very strange time. Take care xx
