The Positive Attitude Award from Tara.
What a day yesterday of lows of hearing about Sherry's daughter Nicole's death
and the dog having an operation.
And the highs of a promise of a visit from a good friend from Wales
tomorrow and an award from Tara@Living with Multiple Sclerosis
Please visit Tara; she is a wonderfully positive woman who is getting
on with her life despite and because of MS.
She also a website called Welcome to Creative Custom Canes
Her favourite quote is
"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." Albert Einstein
A good quote to be inspired by.
Thanks for the award Tara hope you have a good day today.
I will for sure with Spike playing with me and not giving me a chance to be unhappy.
By contrast yesterday was a whole day without our beautiful Spike wanting to play all the time.
Really noticed how Marleen missed Spike as the whole day she was here but not really present.
She did not come to life until Spike was back at 19.00 last night and then she started to tease him right away.
He loved it and loved being home running around and checking everything out, when he had he seemed really happy to be here.
The vet's loved him too and Richie noticed when he took him and when he picked him up that he had not been short of a cuddle as they all seemed keen to be nice to the little fellow.
When I woke up this morning it was because Spike came trotting in the room to demand access to his water bowl.
He has a very distinctive walk Richie always calls him gunslinger as he sounds like he is wearing cowboy's spurs.
If he tried he could not be subtle, he can't pretend like Marleen will to get his toy or the bed he is sleeping on.
She will just bark and he thinks the alarm has been sounded and goes charging off while she calmly hops into the bed he left with his favourite toy in her mouth.
Ah well it is a good sunny day I did my arm exercises nice and early and Richie took all the tension out of my legs with some leg exercises and a good leg massage.
After that THC and some more TLC soon had most of the pain at bay and I could start my day in style.
Be so good to see Gareth especially in the summer usually these days he is only here in late autumn and beginning of the year.
Nice to see him over in Amsterdam this summer.
Funny how some people you always miss and others I have met here I do not even remember anything about them.
Gareth is one of the ones I will always miss; he is such a lovely person really great to have around.
Really looking forward to his visit at 6 pm today.
Have a good day.
