I can see this is going to be a fun day. The fridge is empty the food cupboards are bare the dirty washing pile is enormous and it is a grey Monday morning.
I suspect I am going to be dragged around the shops and cafes again. Not to mention the launderette. Actually, I don’t really mind, this is quite fun, lots of different places, different smells.
First thing this morning, I got him up for his walk but he soon put me on a lead and we went exploring, mostly around the roads, into this quite pretty town, not what I am used to but clearly there was a method here.
We identified a place called ‘The Washing Well’ I know my long haired one will be pleased about that it is only about 300 meters from where we are moored and, as the rather clever name implies, it is a much needed launderette. As you know my washing machine is not functioning at the moment.
After breakfast, sure enough several bags of dirty washing were transported out of my long kennel and loaded onto a trolley, (it belongs to my kennel for this purpose) and dragged to ‘The Washing Well’ then a bit of a walk in the opposite direction and lots of food shopping was collected from a big shop, (I wasn’t allowed in) and taken back to my long kennel on the same trolley, then back to ‘The Washing Well’ from where bags of clean washing were then loaded and brought back to my long kennel on the trolley which was then collapsed (as did my bearded one) and stowed on my roof. (The trolley not my bearded one) They tried to persuade me to pull it but I refused, I was exhausted.
I enjoyed the walks though, back and forth back and forth but was not impressed with the long wait outside the supermarket and so I ate my lead as I was bored.
Then it was lunch time and I think the humans decided they were going nowhere today and so I went to sleep. As I was asleep, I cannot report with accuracy but I suspect that after they had lunch they had a little sleep too.
Tonight I know they are having another dinner party. This culinary surprise is being prepared by Barbie in the Galley of Micky Jay but it will be consumed in the dining room of my kennel and I will be helping to serve drinks at 5:30. My photo today is of their dining hall in my kennel.and mine on the floor!
