It's driving the dog mad to see me doing this on this particular Monday
Suitcase. check. Flip Flops. check. Luggage label. check ... Uh oh, they're leaving me. Little does she know that her Mummy is taking a few days off work to be at home with her and there are plans afoot for Coco to have her very first visit to a beach if the weather permits. But as far as she is concerned suitcases being packed are never a good sign.
Well Monday has been going on for quite some time for me this week. There was a horrendous thunderstorm right overhead at about 4am which woke me up, scared the living daylights out of me and led to me rescuing a frightened pup from her bedroom (aka the kitchen)and bringing her upstairs to be with us. It went on for ages and a house not far from us was struck by lightening. They heard a loud bang, went to turn on the lights to find they had no electricity, and when they found a torch they discovered a hole in the ceiling of one of their bedrooms. This is why I hate thunderstorms!
Did you have a good weekend? We spent a lot of ours picking up our 'children' from airports, train stations, and hen nights. It was a 'good to have Jon home for a few hours, watching a couple more episodes of Season 3 Breaking Bad, long dog walks in the sunshine, eating Mary Berry's slow cooked Asian style pork belly for Sunday lunch, mowing the lawn, eating all meals outside, checking the weather forecast for Lake Garda, looking round properties with a house hunting daughter, and another trip to the airport for Jon's return flight' kind of weekend. The kind of weekend that you need a holiday to get over it. Funny you should say that ...
