Best Laid Plans


  • Last night The Prof was working away.....I was rostered to work nights.....best laid plans
  • I planned to take some holiday time owed to me and leave work around 6 am so that I could get home a little earlier to walk the bladder busted dogs......best laid plans.
  • My emergency patient was admitted at 5.00 am which necessitated in me staying........best laid plans
  • I didn't leavework until well after 8.30 and remember that I had left three goose eggs on the kitchen table last night.....best laid plans
  • The kitchen floor looked like a cross between a badly kept farmyard and an explosion in a goose egg factory when I got home...............best laid plans
  • I had a small weep then took the dogs out for a walk, I then took them into the field where I tied them to the gate and went to let the animals out. ........best laid plans
  • Suddenly the ewes thundered past me with a determined and very excited Mary galloping right at their heels.........FUCKING BEST LAID PLANS EH?
  • Eventually with  help from the neighbours , goo goo eyed Welsh terrier bitch was caught and hyperventilating ewes left to calm down.......fed dogs, fed cat,.....burnt toast when making mushrooms on toast.....BLP!
  • Went to bed at 9.30 
  • Phone woke me up 11.30........I was told I wasn't needed on  a Samaritan publicity meeting on a local railway station at 13.00 ( many suicides occur on local railway stations) ...best laid plans!!!!!!! Whooooohoooooo!
  • I could really do with a scotch egg.......but of course I forgot to buy one.......yes....you've guessed it
  • Best.......... laid ...........plans
  • Sylvia and Irene.......post attack.....

  5. I'm sorry, but you did make me smile. Such a difficult few hours for you, but yet I detected a smidgeon of humour beneath it all. Hope the day went better. Hope the goose egg pulp had not dried too hard and turned into cement. Vx

  6. Forget the Scotch egg. A drink of Scotch might be more appropriate!

  14. You need to have a stash of Scotch Eggs for emergencies only. You know what, I am more of a chocolate craver, but you are making me want to buy a Scotch Egg after work now!

  16. Dried-on egg is so difficult to remove. And that Mary is like your beloved but unruly child whose pigtails are always falling apart, her socks are down, her face is smeared with jam but she is unfailingly happy!

  17. You don't 'do' boring do you John....statement not question.

  18. I hope the rest of today was calmer than yesterday!

  19. ... and presented here for our entertainment ... but it also reminds us to look for the humour in our own bad days. My husband and I tag team animal care also, so when something delays us I am always worrying about them, but I have to say it has never been this bad. Maybe that's the difference between cats and dogs? Wonderful description of your kitchen.

  20. I bet the ewes take the weekend to calm down. They need buns or lovely bread to get rid of the colly wobbles.

    On a completely different note, John, have you heard from Suzie in Michigan. I have sent her an email. I hope she is well.

  21. John, I'm sorry that your BLP's went awry, but boy, your post made me smile. I didn't realize Mary was big enough to chase ewes yet. Hope you're having two Scotch eggs right now. xx

  22. Sigh.
    I hope today's plans run smoothly. And without the mess.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Today can only get better, surely??
    On another tack ... is there someone who, in an emergency, could let the dogs out? Even if they were then tethered outside until you got home? I had a metal rope the puppy couldn't chew through that safely tethered her... just thinking

    1. There is a field of lawn mowers just up my hill, with a few Highland cattle and one horse. I never thought of borrowing a few sheep and getting my lawns done !

  33. You need some coddling, so you do! Had a BLP myself today... someone who is not me left the gate to the back garden standing open and you can't see the gate from the back door. Picture me wobbling around, the kidling looking all 'Tara' and all four scattering in every direction whilst the extremely large and loud family prancing down the middle of the street does all they can to interfere.

    There, feel a bit better now?
