I have had the most exhausting weekend that you can imagine followed by the best day ever.
I was so tired and in so much pain over the weekend that I spent almost all the time in bed just resting and I didn't even have the energy to read. But yesterday as a result of 2 days of rest I felt really good. Whilst I still spent half of the day sitting down,I managed to catch upon the washing,cleaned the lounge and the bathroom in between my many sit down breaks!
PLUS.....I managed hourly toilet training with Beauty which showed a small amount of success.
Today I am hoping for a similar amount of success, with feeling better AND toilet training!

On Saturday night and Sunday night,due to the fact that I had been resting all day,I only slept part of the night and for the rest of the night I was convinced that my back garden was inundated by visitors and no I wasn't having hallucinations!
I have a number of gnomes in my garden which Beauty loves and one of them has a sensor which produces a wolf whistle every time somebody walks past him. And that particular gnome was whistling all night!
My garden is built in such a way that the only real entry is through the gate and that makes a hideous screeching noise when opened so I knew nobody had entered the garden.
So what could it have been?
I spent my wakeful time convinced that my garden was inundated by wild animals ie cats,rats or foxes
Or even the gnomes and SnoWhite and the other garden ornaments were partying!
But no.....
Yesterday I went to see what had been going on and found the answer.....it had been very windy during the night and the old piggy hutch door had been blowing open and shut in front of the gnome all night,setting off the sensor!
Well duh!

I had a brief vision of your garden gnomes wolf whistling people as they walked by...!

I hate those senior moments!




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
