    International Army October 2020

    Bit different start from white rabbits but how's about a white snout.
    My darling Bess................who decided last year she's had enough of Mr, JC's driving coming home from Scotland and deccided she could do better.


    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Oh Jackie, what a beautiful photo Am sure you are very raw and empty at the moment so self care and a bit of pampering is a must. Might help to reminisce and have a good cry too. Whatever you feel like, we are here for you. We would be lost without you, I was over in last months thread, checking to see if you were ok and here you were, setting us up for October.

    Walk done and moving on to do the final coat of paint on skirting boards. That’s it then, so sick of it.

    Good morning Army!

    Jackie, darling, such a sweet face. Thanks so much for posting the picture. I know how you feel, I've been there. As Rusters said - pampering is in order - both for you and Mr. JC. You have so many wonderful memories of your girlie. Now is the time to get them out. Laugh, cry, remember her quirks and her antics. Hold them close to you. Again, sending hugs to both of you.

    Covid scare in our neighbourhood. A company just a kilometer away has 5 cases, two of which are hospitalized. Not good. Hate all of this. The govt has people going around and checking the working conditions of the businesses in our area. Mainly to see if the sanitary measures are being followed and if the employees are wearing masks. My guess is that the people checking aren't wearing suitable masks themselves. No info given to the public whatsoever. Everyone wearing those damn fabric masks. Not that there is much else available. Anyway. Enough of that.

    Wishing you all the best day you can make it.

    For every 60 seconds that you are angry, you lose a minute of happiness.

    Evening All .....
    Hope you are all ok @JackieClaire

    Still self-isolating here - but the holiday was so worth it.
    Getting to see The Parthenon in Athens was a highlight after 'studying' it for 12 months - remember that ?
    In one ear & out the other at the time but seeing it in real time was fascinating.

    I consider myself lucky that i am able to stay at home for 14 days - which was one of the pros when we drew up the pros/cons list last month before going.

    Other pros :
    * Already paid for & I can't afford to lose over €1k
    * Hadn't had time away in 12 months
    * Had holidays to take from work
    * Had family down the road who adore Rosie & didn't want to give her back.
    *
    Cons:
    * SIL
    * COVID19

    in that order .....
    Benji ....

    Re: International Army October 2020

    We're okay. Hardest bit is putting away her dishes, blankets, two sheep skin rugs (that weren't hers in the first place bust she claimed them anyway) and we keep finding her toys everywhere.
    She's beng cremated and will be home in about two weeks.
    Taking her all her left over tins of food/chews and any drugs left to PDSA to see if they can be used. Got as far as writing a list of what we've got but just I just couldn't ring them.

    The house feels so empty.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    We've only got Rosie 2 years & I can't imagine the house without her. Most surprising is MrS dotes on her.
    Maybe later on you would think of giving a little of the love you had for Bess to a rescue ? Seems a pity to waste it.
    Some poor mutt that had a bad start in life would be lucky to get a home with you & MrJC.

    Evening. Thats hard @JackieClaire, tidying up Bess's things. What a fabulous picture of her.

    Sounds like the holiday was well worth it Satz. I remember you did that course!! I presume you can get out for a walk or fresh air?

    I kept youngest off for a couple of days. Throat was sore, ok now but still has a snotty nose - should I be getting a covid test? Crossed my mind alright, but kept her out of school and symptoms are those for a cold (no temp). SIL tells me that I must.
    Your head would be wrecked with this...
