Twas more like goo-ey , runny chocolate Caz.
Shocking to dig - and it collapsed (and filled with water).
All done now though - funeral was today.

No , no sign of any snow here - did you get any in deepest South Yorkshire??

We saw some on the hills up Weardale when i was off work , and my partner works in Richmond (N Yorks, not Surrey!!) , and she said it was really bad over there on Wednesday.
She starts work at 6.30am too!!!

Working at a different cemetery tomorrow (Saturday) , and i'm also on call this weekend.

Woke up to snow on Wednesday morning but it was all gone by lunchtime.

Hope you don't get called out, digger.

We're going to our daughters for the weekend - we had planned a visit to Trentham Gardens but I think the weather will stop us doing that.

Had a look at Trentham Gardens online Caz - it looks very nice!
Hope you have a nice weekend with your daughter , a break from the football too eh !

No call out today , still have tomorrow yet though - and i was working this morning
Carried out a burial of a set of 'cremated remains' at a cemetery about 3 miles from where i live.
The council that i work for has 5 cemeteries.

My partner's at work today .
Still feels 'odd' and 'not right' , coming home from work etc and there's no Susie.

we've had no snow at all here yet , just rain, rain, and more rain.

Will you be getting another dog, Digger?

Yes we had a good time in and around Penkhull, the village where they live. We did go to Trentham but just around the gift shops there - bought some fancy cheeses and daughter bought boots and a hat. We were there just over an hour. Walked down their hill (it is a very very long hill) to a pub - which was more like someone's front room with barrels of beer, cider etc. It was good and we played games. Then we walked back up the very very long hill (my back didn't thank me for that!) and had a takeaway.

Today we've been to Warmington to The Bear's Paw for Sunday lunch - very nice it was too. And we had a good journey home.

Home yesterday from a few days in London with my daughter and family. Had a lovely time despite the sore knees from crawling all round after my grandaughter (10 months) and the chronic lack of sleep - she thinks sleeping isa waste of playing time!!

Oh dear Sixpence - not good on 'old' knees that is it!

I had stupid accident yesterday evening - I picked a load of washing up from where I'd been sorting it on the bed and put it in the washer. After a few minutes we head a clunk, clunk, clunk so went to investigate and I'd picked the home walkabout phone up with the clothes and was gaily washing it! It didn't do it any good!

So, after going to the supermarket with my friend this morning the other half and I made a trip into town and went around trying to find a phone that would fit on the existing charger - now this phone is nine years or so old so I thought that would be a fruitless task but went along with it for peace's sake! It was a fruitless task. We ended up in Argos and getting a new one. This new phone has the most awful ringing sounds - doesn't just ring it plays a flippin' tune which is very flowery! At least we'll know where it is!

Also, for the first time since it opened (two years ago?) I've been in the new Tesco in Rotherham. I'm not sure I'll be going back again that soon - we found it a bit awkward to look round for things - some kind assistant took pity on us and found the electrical department we needed!

More than likely will end up getting another dog eventually.
Certainly not for a while though - it would feel like i was trying to 'replace' Susie , and that's definately not what i want.

When we first started fostering her , it became obvious that she was 'very headstrong' and was quite 'loud'.
So, it just became the norm that wherever we went , i would 'have' Susie with me .
This in turn produced a 'bond' between us and she ended up going just about everywhere with me (in or out of the house).

Obviously , i knew she was getting old and wouldn't last for ever , but (i know i probably sound silly cos she was 'only' a dog) when the reality of it all hit home i was (and still am ) totally devastated.
That night when we got her PTS was awful - her poor face when she was struggling to free herself from the vet .

Anyway , on a lighter note - i've never been keen on Tesco.
I find that the staff on the 'express checkouts' never seem to be taking any notice - especially if you need assistance.
Much prefer Sainsbury's - i think their 'own brand' stuff is much better than Tesco's and Asda's.

She wasn't only a dog was she though, she was a family member.

I know I'm not a particular animal lover but I can understand that's how it must feel.

We haven't got a 'big' Sainsbury's in Rotherham, just a small one. My usual haunts are Morrison's and Asda and we now know quite a lot of the staff so have a natter while we're packing - must drive the customers behind us mad! When we had a Sainsbury's at Meadowhall and I was going there I did get their fresh meat and cheese as I thought it was the best around.

As I am sure you have found before, digger time does put a different view on things. I wasn't having another dog after George and then Ringo died, but eventually you just realise that life is richer with a dog in it and of course there are just so very many who need a loving home!


I live quite near a Morrisons store so usually do a 'big shop' there. In between I get bits at the local small Sainsburys - I like their 'stuff', but it is more expensive.
Not an Asda fan.

I had planned on going out but it's raining very heavily - have had to put the lights on in the house - it's cold and well.....perhaps housework has a certain appeal! lol!

My sister and I have been to Meadowhall. The shops weren't too bad and got served easily but trying to get in for something to eat was a nightmare. Ended up resorting to a McDonalds and sitting in the kids area!

Oooh that's desperation, mind I do like their ice-creams, and their coffee is cheap and cheerful!

The last couple of times I have been there at lunchtime, we have eaten at the upstairs cafe in M &S.

They were queuing down the shop at both M&S cafes, Sixpence - we tried their first. All had queues at them - and the Harvester said it would be a 40 minute wait! By then we were hungry and thirsty!

Thanks for the kind words , both of you.
You make a very good point , Sixpence, about many dogs needing a loving home.
How's Minnie getting on by the way?


At work tomorrow.
That's three Saturday's out of the last four I've worked , and I was on call the other one.

Never mind, we're both off on Monday , so we're planning a nice trip out somewhere on Sunday.

We normally do our 'main' food shopping on line now.

She is much better, thank you.
I still need to change the dressing every day - but new tissue is growing and the wound is much smaller than it was. The skin that was sewn has knitted together well and Minnie has her mojo back!!

Always a good sign (about the mojo) , shows she's feeling happier in herself.
Obviously Minnies particular case will be different (cos she's under treatment from a vet?),but we find 'Hibiscrub' to be really good for cleaning out cuts or 'bites' etc.

Well I'd got things planned for this afternoon but the torrential rain put me off - I thought about doing housework but the thought soon vanished!

The 'parcel lady' came with parcels for next door at just gone 6pm - good job she did as we discovered our porch awash! Towels down now!

Yes, back to the vet onThursday. The wound is clean, diggerand doing much better now. Just waiting for enough new skin to grow over it. What could be pulled together was stiched and healed quite quickly, but this just seems a slow process. (9th October it happened!)
