A. Not a lot.
Well, I made the bed, had breakfast, washed plates and mugs and Charlie’s feeding bowls, heated and ate a ready-made Shepherd’s Pie and washed up again, then took in a parcel from Amazon.
Yes, it’s a Black and Decker tool with which to gather all the lose particles that escape from Charlie’s litter tray. It was getting too difficult to remove from an oldish indoor carpet even though that carpet was protected by newspapers and part of an old shower curtain. I really thought the papers would collect the stuff and save me having to keep getting on my knees. Ha, who did I think I was kidding?
Trouble is, the tray usually sits outside in the outhouse but has been brought in because of the extremely cold weather which puts both Charlie and me off venturing outside the kitchen door. I used to leave a window open so that he could get at the cat flap in the outer garden door but the weather has been too cold for open windows. Instead, I allowed him to use the tray indoors. The room was once Joe’s office but is now classed as Charlie’s room. Because the room can be shut off if necessary I don’t feel bad about turning it over to him. Of course, he has access to all other rooms, I mean – where would I be without his company. Since the weather has been so cold even I don’t want to venture too far from the fire. The central heating works and is okay but it has struggled to warm the house with our recent spell of fierce winds and ice cold snow. I am not sure if it’s me getting older and feeling the cold more or that the weather really is freezing cold. I suppose I will never work that out.
I’m hoping for some warmer weather so I can get out on the scooter. The weather is definitely against my trying to manoeuvre a scooter up hill and down dale. Never mind, I will soon be able to go out and show off. I hope!
