As far as getting old is concerned, at least I’m not getting forgetful yet. Nor is my sister. Lucky us. I think I’ve got everything I want to take with me and have packed the car except for the coolbox. I’ve watered the greenhouse, picked all the produce and reminded Wink to keep picking and I’ve taken all the houseplants outside so that they’ll be easier to water.
Hop is hopefully sitting on her eggs still and has been for nearly a fortnight. Fingers crossed that a few hatch. Polly is very poor at sitting, but takes a turn while Hop goes for a drink and a poo. She never manages to squat on all the eggs, one or two are left out, but Hop is very conscientious. She is also walking better than she has for about 9 months.
My boot is supportive but not a pleasure to wear and my foot isn’t particularly comfortable. Getting it filthy, while washing the tennis court, then having to wash it, hasn’t done anything good for it. It took ages to dry out completely and yesterday, the sole of my foot was looking decidedly wrinkly from constant contact with damp boot. Fearing trench foot, I took the boot off for a couple of hours before going to bed, but it seems all right. Only three weeks more to wear it, which takes me nicely to the blog party. I think it may be removed a day or so early, as long as it seems healed.
I’ve bought a key safe to leave at the caravan. Last week, Tim’s brother and sister-in-law had a few spare days and asked if they could stay there – lovely to have it used, the whole extended family has an open invitation to use it. Getting a key was a bit complicated, but manageable, as Tim’s sister-in-law and her husband live nearby, but they are away quite a lot, visiting family on Jersey so, not wanting to bother the site manager, I think that finding a safe place and putting a key in the safe in the safe place will be good. I’m always afraid I might take the wrong set of keys with me, so it’s emergency backup for me too.
Silence from me for the next week, internet coverage is still very poor there. Have a good week!
