Rain arrived overnight and the air smells lovely. It has scuppered our plans for tackling some garden work at DS’s house. Next thing to think about doing is painting DGD’s bedroom but I’m not sure the light is good enough for that either, we shall see.
Ruby has just come back, very wet, from a walk with the other dogs. She doesn’t understand the house rules here so just occasionally looks sad. The other dogs would normally play with her but don’t want to, so she doesn’t understand that either. Two different packs now I guess.
DGD is a joy. All the pictures and videos make her appear bigger than she actually is. She has grown tremendously since we last saw her, but is still, to us, dinky do. As sad as that must sound, I am glad as it somehow makes her seem new born. Mind you, coming on for 12lb, I can’t hold her over my shoulder for long. I don’t know how women in their 50’s and 60’s who chose to have a baby, do it.
Having not slept well the first night, just 3 hours and too hot, we were all zonked out as we were out walking all afternoon. DGD was also worn out with all the stimulation.
