That was an interesting few weeks.
We have just reached the end of a complete kitchen remodel. It took two weeks to completely empty the kitchen and set up a temporary one in the dinning room before the work began. The old kitchen was torn out followed by huge holes being gouged out of the walls and ceiling for the rewire! The kitchen was rewired, plastered, painted, new cabinets, and then the new tiled floor we had done in November was extended to fill the exposed areas created by the new cabinet layout. Now we just have to find everything we took out and return it to the kitchen, don’t worry we put everything somewhere safe… now, where was that? 😀
I found the past 2 or 3 weeks interesting as I had to hide in the bedroom most days with Hamish to stop him getting stressed by all the comings and goings. I watched a lot of television and Hamish did a lot of sleeping, mostly across me! We usually found a time in the day when the contractors were either taking a break or going to get supplies when I could get my buggy out and take the woofers for a run. Indy was more than happy to just lay down somewhere and watch the workers doing their thing, almost all of the polish workers were terrified of dogs so we had to keep him a safe distance from the kitchen, it’s a good job they didn’t meet Hamish he would have scared the bejeesus out of them. 😀 Funny people, who doesn’t love dogs?
My MS is much the same, I am still having the balance problems that have plagued me for months. I have an MS clinic appointment in two weeks so I will see if I can do something different that might help. The weather has been like a typical English summer, warm for a few days followed by chilly and wet for a week and then warm again, so I haven’t suffered the “hot weather exhaustion” that I have during prolonged hot spells. Now we are nearing the end of summer it is unlikely the weather will cause any problems this year. This is good because I won’t be as exhausted but bad because I love sunny days out with the boys.

Jan and her mate Doug came from a home with a very elderly owner who was was
going into a nursing home and, of course, couldn’t take them with him. IRR was
contacted to see if we could help. They have been together all their lives and have
a strong bond with each other.
There are other dogs available and always some being assessed and others still waiting to travel to The UK.
