Home Alone: Day 2

I have started talking to the dogs and I only saw one person today. Well, there was actually about six more as, for some unknown reason, two car loads of people landed on the yard looking for a house that did not exist. One was a driving instructor's car the other was a civilian. I have no idea what they were up to but the pack of barking dogs certainly discouraged them from leaving their vehicles.



Apart from this one thing I had a lovely lonesome day. I bottled wine (blackcurrant and apple) and I gardened. And the gardening was where I screwed up. There was this heavy stone sink. Last year it contained some pretty yellow crocosmia, Emily McKenzie, I think. This year I thought I'd put geraniums (pelargoniums) in it. But it was in the wrong place. I needed it to be 8 foot further to the right. I lifted it and moved it and tried to take care but it was too heavy and now I have hurt my back. Stupido. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.

Ouch! I have sorta learned to drag things on a tarp or roll them onto a dolly to move them. But there is always that one large boulder...

I thought about that stuff and then I thought, it's such a little way. Lucky I know a sports therapist. She's coming tomorrow. If I can tear her away from the dogs she might give me a treatment.

Nelly do take care, it is not a good idea especially when you are alone. Take things easy tomorrow.
