Life is a bit of a yo-yo act, one day is good, another might be a bit more on the bleh side. So you stumble through that day and the next day is OK again. It's weird, frustrating too. But I grow used to it after a while.
Yesterday was a day off for me, which included a slight sleep in until 7:30 when I forced myself up - knowing the two little dogs we have managed to accumulate would need food, love and attention - like they always crave. Mum and Dad left early, about 5am to go do some spraying, where they would be all day. And Nick eventually left too for a date with the new girlfriend. Happy times, I guess.
Except that yet again I had a day all to myself with no clue, whatsoever, on what I could occupy myself with. Other than dogsitting the little munchkins who are actually a heck of a lot of trouble - especially when you add Frodo and Pippa into the mix. Eventually I decided to mow some more lawns, which has sadly turned into a common occurrence for me and they simply won't stop growing. Every hour or so going and getting the dogs and taking them for another run around outside for 10 minutes or so. Then popping them back inside and continuing with the onslaught of greenery.
That took up a few hours, I stumbled across a huge pile of feijoa's under one of our younger fruit trees so brought them all inside, and I was still going a little bit crazy so I then hauled out the vacuum cleaner and played around with that for a bit. I find the day slowly melts away when I keep giving myself jobs to do, sad I know, on my one day off. I guess I just get bored being on my own - I never realised how important it is for me to be around people, every so often speaking to someone who is actually able to speak back (without barking) can be quite pleasant. I just forget, until I'm by myself again.
At some point in time I found myself a nice comfy spot on the top lawn in the sun, to sit and watch the dogs run around like goofs for a while. They're playing tug of war over a willow branch and Pippa found it simply fascinating and also joined in on the fray - going slightly berserk herself. haha
But it's been a nice, sunny week and I'm now back at work again for a two week stretch - before taking three days off to get some repairs done on my car. The Airbag Occupancy Sensor, under my seat is playing up and needs replacing - so that'll be a day or two at the auto electricians to be sorted out. Airbags can come in handy from time to time, so fixing it is probably an unfortunate, necessary evil!
