The dog walker arrived yesterday morning for our" mutual" interview
He is a big bearded hunk who sports a figure hugging polo shirt with the logo of Welsh terrier type on it....
So it was thumbs up from me from the get go!
Unfortunately he's straight, but that meant nothing to Winnie and Mary who promptly fell in love with him and his loud manly ways .
" Just show Winnie the door and she will amble out for a pee!" I instructed Mr Big Beard
and he boomed a laugh that shook the windows
" Oh I may even take her for a one on one walk..just the two of us ! " he flirted kneeling the bulldog's arse with his knuckles
Winnie fell for it hook line and sinker and threw him a toothy smile and a kiss.
It hurts when your kids swap allegiances at the drop of a hat.
So yesterday after Mr Big Beard sadly left. I took the dogs to the vets for their boosters where the lovely Spanish vet " You love Sitges! I love Sitges.....the WORLD loves Sitges!!" gave Winnie a thorough physical
" She iz one Strong ladyz!" the vet said " She az the 'art of a lion"
The bank holiday weekend is getting on my tits somewhat, as I had forgotten it was upon me, but recalling the words of my Friend and fellow Miranda fan, Nigel who always told me to have an " ENO PLAN " in place , I checked my calendar
Now for those that don't know an ENO plan is what is termed in the trade an EMERGENCY NIGHT OUT plan....ENOs are vital strategies for singletons who don't want to be boxed in, on a weekend with nothing to do. They should be booked weeks if not months in advance, should be inexpensive
wherever possible cheap and clearly documented
Of course it is your responsibility to check when these little nuggets of social interaction are to take place, but generally it is important to book them on a weekend when everyone else will be doing couple things!
I looked at my calendar yesterday!
For today it was scribbled outdoor cinema Chester8pm Greta
The Chester Storyhouse has organised several outdoor showings of favourite movies in the Roman Gardens which is a picturesque strip of park right in the centre of the city. Pretty Woman, Mary Poppins, 1980s favourites such as Dirty Dancing and Jurassic Park are to name but a few and I bought tickets to see A Star Is Born for tonight for me and a friend .
The friend can come and all I need now is some cheap beach chairs and a picnic box!
