It’s that time of year when we can say goodbye to the old year. Contemplate the great variety of acheivements, whether good or bad, that have happenned. We can see how we can improve our way of life. What we can do differently, look for new challenges for 2018.
NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS are made and wonder whether they will be kept of broken within the first few weeks.
Here, as with everywhwere else in the world, the bangs of fireworks are let off, hopefully to banish all ills and welcome a New Year.
Fireworks have always caused our pets (& wild life) to be very scared. Some pets can cope, others shake. pace the floor, bark & cry. A lot of love is neede for them. Yet I wonder how many people think about this and go all out to celebrate ‘noisely’ ? There is a pill called SERUM’. a calming medication & the day before Benji gets 1 in the morning, 1 in the evening & again the actual day the same thing. We had some very loud bangs & I thought: any minute now he’ll be getting on the bed & being very restless: but Benji slept through all.
Christmas I went to Midnight Mass, followed by over to my son for Xmas dinner. Usually we take a walk after lunch, back in time for the QUEEN’S SPEACH’ but this time the waether was not good.
Had some lovely presents from the family – picture frame, jigsaw, small pots of jam. Always I treat my self to something too. This time a new washing machine and that will be coming tomorrow. Benji has had a new bed. Oh my , he just loves it. The first time it was put down we went out for our walk & as soon as we got in dashed upstairs to see if it was still there! Another epeisode was an emergency viait to the vet. He ate my TERRYS CHOCOLATE ORANGE. Luckily he neede no treatment.
One resolution I have made is to go for more walks with Benji, involved in driving the car. Here in my part of the country are so many lovely places to visit. Benji is so much better in the car now and loves to go out in it.
Signing off now. Mary & Benji
