A wonderful poem Joy. I missed this post yesterday Sad
Chat is a lot quieter these days without Sue. I still hear her voice though at the end of the night 'Sweet dreams each'

Well, watcher sue, I have just had a very tasty bacon and cheese buttie and we are now sitting toasting our feet/paws by my lovely wood stove. I know it's almost May, but you know how I feel the cold and it has suddenly returned with a vengeance. So we are now very cosy and I feel a lazy gossip coming on.

We are so fortunate living here at this difficult time. I have just been for a two hour walk along the trail and passed only five people. It's quite interesting to watch them, you can lay a bet as they approach on what they will do when closer. It's a pretty straight run most of the way so you can see them for ages, one group of four spread out and filling the trail but then smoothly drifting into single file as they come closer and pass. Must be locals I say, probably a bit unkindly, but we were inundated at one point with visitors who seemed completely unconcerned about passing nose to nose! I did once have to make my point by climbing up the bank! Fortunately things are back to being reasonable with folk automatically swinging to one side; almost like a dance at times.

We have had a quiet morning with me taking heed of some prodding to sit in the garden and read a book except that I sat by there fire - see, you are not the only one with the right idea. Not that I had planned a walking marathon today but I thought I would just nip onto the scales before we went; it was quite disconcerting when they shouted, " Will one of you get off"! Obviously sitting on the edge of my veggie beds and poking the soil with a small fork is not having the desired effect. Neither is putting tiny seeds into small pots. Now that is a fairly new activity for me, I have previously been able to benefit from Gilly's labours, all that experience should definitely not be wasted. Trouble is, some of them are so small they are hard to grip properly and they either drift down and land all on the same spot or, even worse, drift down and miss the pot completely and when they are your last few that can cause a good deal of Anglo Saxon to slip out. Good job my neighbour is hard of hearing. But then, later, watching and waiting to see them pop up and steadily grow is quite exciting, almost like having your own children - except that I am going to eat this lot.

Millie is her usual bossy self, unfortunately having a bit of a bladder problem at the moment, but so good when I tangle my self in knots trying to put a doggy nappy on, (her, not me). She still looks and behaves like the beast from hell when people come the front door but I am quite happy with that. I have to say, she loves her new roll as fire monitor even though she hasn't quite got the idea that she isn't supposed to nod off while on duty. Ah well, you can't win 'em all.

I had better sign off - have yet to go and give my green babies their night time drink, then a short walk with Millie and then, if I can keep my eyes open, a visit to chat.

In this time of booking slots for red wine and beans, (some people have odd priorities), may we put in one for just a few days of rain, then back to the sun. Some of us have hedges to trim and brambles to fight.

Night night

Ummmm Sue.... if you can hear me....Joy is talking about my priorities just in case you were wondering Cool

Well done Joy on relaxing today - sitting in front of the fire is as good as sitting in the sun.

Happy planting xxx

Thanks Joy for cheering me up. My scales went into overdrive as soon as I put one foot on this morning, never mind 2 Sad . Its rained all day here but no puddles in the garden, so we really needed that rain. I can almost hear the army of slugs and snails as they march towards my little runner beans - I have stationed the defences (animal friendly slug pellets) but -

Round here we might as well not be in lockdown as far as social distancing is concerned. Sue, I bet you're laughing your head off up there at the chaos down here - well, you just carry on laughing Laughing

Oh my goodness, I can't believe that the day has come round again and as it is John's turn tomorrow there are lots of memories drifting by. It is almost unbelievable that so many raise smiles and mind pictures as clear as they day they were created.

Must say, happy memories are probably very useful at the moment when we are still enfolded in this cloak of social distancing. Not sure how you would get on with that, Sue, guess you'd be pretty ok with the social bit but distancing from your mates -- hmmm --- especially the four legged ones. Quite a challenging environment when slot finding to have groceries delivered needs the stamina and determination of a trained marathon runner, frustrating when your request for carrots delivers a single one - check the spelling next time!- but there is the odd bonus when your small joint is substituted by a large one as that is the only size left. Sadly I haven't been able to join in this fun activity as my dislike of shopping generally and my pre-winter habit of stocking up has left me with still enough tins and frozen packets to feed an army and bread, fresh fruit and veg is only a dog walking mile down to the town where, in true "open all hours" fashion, old fashioned Wirksworth still has shops that stack all the fruit and veg outside. A quick nip in to hand over your basket and then to pay the bill and contact is minimal. Or you could indulge in the highly organised open farmers' market on a Tuesday.

The day is dull and drizzly, you are obviously not keeping an eye on things, though maybe I misjudge and it is just another opportunity to fire up the stove. We have just sat for an hour reading about a man whose miserable life was further devastated by the sudden onset of blindness only to be transformed by the relationship with his guide dog. Like Millie, Dez, the black lab, was convinced that the world had been created simply to love and fuss him but when his master, ( now that is a misnomer if ever there was one), needed him to be a guide and protector he was there without fail. Well, Millie fulfils the first role but not so sure about the second. In fact she has just tipped out her toy box, had a mad five minutes flinging them around then suddenly flaked out in front of the fire. Wonder who is going to put then away Rolling Eyes

It will soon be time to go along the trail which today will probably be deserted. I never guessed when I drew up plans to live somewhere with close access to the open countryside,( for Millie), all vital services a walk away, ( or a short bus ride if the shopping bag is too heavy), that not only would I actually find such a place but that a situation would arise when being here would make my life so much more bearable.

Ah well, Millie calls, better be off. I have not written for ages, it doesn't mean that you are not in my thoughts - especially when I see your sign "Joy's cabin" which now marks my small bedroom door.

We were blessed when you were with us, we are blessed that memories of you still help us along.

Sleep well my friend; you are forever wrapped in the blanket of ur love.

Joy and your Milliepede
xxxxxxx

It would be Crufts this weekend and I am remembering the way we moved quickly towards each other and crushed in the sort of hug that friends do when they haven’t seen each other for a year. Precious... I think of you each time I read the “in the interest of dogs there is no hygiene in this kitchen” magnate.
Give Mollie and Lizzie a big fuss from me. We fetched Mols ashes home today. Hate being without those we love, hurts. See you anon dear friend xxxx
