reflection.

l had no idea it was so long ago that l wrote my last blog. It isn't that l have been avoiding the blank screen, but stuff just seems to come at you from all angles...........

The dog, L=P is still not back to normal. She is having a major problem eating in bites. Food has to be pureed or else she behaves like a cat with a large fur ball rammed down her throat. the vets have taken x-rays, but have no idea the cause of her frothy vomiting each & every time she eats in a normal fashion. I always thought that horses were trouble, now it looks like dear old L-P is the cause of yet more wrinkles. hey ho!

So here we are November, Remembrance Sunday is out of the way so we seem to be in the count down to christmas, the mad rush to buy all things twinkly & tacky. The shops are playing, to gets us in the mood, carols & Christmas 'icky' pop. Out with the earplugs.

The shop is now quieter. We are closed Mondays & Tuesday from now on until easter, so that gives me a few days of normality. Lunch at lunch time for example, plus catching up with friends who feel that they have been deserted over the summer months. It's really hard to do nothing or very little after months of non-stop adrenaline overloads!

Don't get me wrong, there is still plenty to do. Meeting buyers, planning for next year, removing dust from the skirting. It's just so nice to be able to do what l want, within reason, without watching the clock or having to be smiley at all times.

'So here it is Merry Christmas everybody's having fun...................'

No, no, I'm in denial until December 1st. Enjoy your 'down(?)time, and I hope Lucy Piglet gets back to normal soon.

Hi Muddy,

Sorry to hear LP not a hundred percent yet, give her a pat from me and hope she is soon sorted. Very worrying for you.

So know what you mean about the winter being a time to catch up with kith & kin, who don't get a look-in during the summer - trouble is I have to deal with Christmas AND the busy summer season all at once here! Just trying to find a spot to put the darn tree at the moment, which in past years has gone in the entrance hall - but now we need to allow room for guests and their Large Bags to pass unfettered.... ggrrrr. Am buying right out of Christmas this year! Well, as much as I can....

You mean you're not smiley at all times ?

Oh heck, don't these dogs give us such worries? DO hope they can get to the bottom of it, and that she recovers fully soon. Glad to hear you can take it a bit easier... But, hmm, I'm with SM - total denial for another couple of weeks at least....though have to confess i did buy a few gorgeous baubles the other day. Jxxx

I've not blogged much either, Christmas, mmmm trying to be organised this year, but I bet it goes and beats me as usual

Gwen said...

Doesn't Christmas come too early these days? I hope the dog is better soon.

Grouse said...

I'm sure we've just had Xmas....what happened to summer? What did you think of the fibre-gel idea?
Good thing about 'down-time' is I will soon be able to pop up to see you!

Yorkshire Pudding said...

Oi! STOP TALKING ABOUT CHRISTMAS! It is only November! I think there should be a law that you are not allowed to even mention Xmas until December starts.

laurie said...
