Double William

As I pulled into the driveway I got a surprise, William and his doppelganger from next-door hanging out.
I went inside and William2 followed. William jumped onto my bed, William2 did too.
Once I had got William2 back outside it meowed through the door to get back in. The dog sniffed at the cat under the door and it hissed and scratched at the glass.
Will this friendship continue? We shall see…

Not A Marathon

Today, after work, I decided that Tobias (dog) and I would walk as far as we could until Mr Pigalina finished work – time unknown.
I strapped on my walking shoes, donned my shorts, filled my water bottle, and we were off. It was pretty windy but we battled on, past the sheep fields, litter filled ditches and the scrap metal yard.
I reached the Green Island shops, which from Waldronville is quite a distance (Google map it!) and was feeling so proud of us. Then Mr Pigalina pulled up to give us a ride home. As I stopped my walking app I was surprised to discover we had only walked 3.5km which is less than the usual route! The straight line nature of the walk made it seem further than our usual loop.
At least we saw some different sights, such as this duck on the stream. One day we plan to walk the 13km to Mr Pigalina’s work…

Accidental Vege Gardener

I tried to get on the grow your own veg bandwagon. However I have to deal with Mr Pigalina who fears the dog has weed on all the plants, birds who eat the produce and a dog who digs up the plants and buries bones under them. I need to get a green house, but green houses cost money and effort to build.
Peas though, are not a problem. Last year I planted six peas resulting in enough peas for two meals. This year I planted none but have a thriving pea plant.

Beautiful Coasters

I arrived at work and discovered this lovely gift on my desk – coasters! Kathy was also taken by the helpful hint (as per yesterday’s post) and when her husband arrived home with cakes in silver foil containers she knew exactly what to do! Beautiful.
