I’m looking forward to our week away (we go on Friday). It’ll be nice not to have any early starts and to forget work and study. Although, if I do get bored in the evenings I may do bits on my thesis. This isn’t because I can’t take a break but I find it hard to read ‘normal’ books right now and I find a lot of TV boring. I’d rather do something useful with my time as I get frustrated if I get bored 🙂
We had a fright last Friday with Cookie. We were out walking her and met a man and his dog who we’d seen before. The dog playfully nipped at Cookie but caught her eye and under her chin – its whole mouth must have been around her head! Her eyeball looked like it was filling with blood which put me in a panic. The man was very apologetic and offered to pay for the vet’s fees. Luckily when we got her to the vet there was just a slight nick from the bottom rim of her eye and no damage to the eyeball. I think I was more shaken than Cookie! She’s got antibiotics for her eye and is bouncing around like nothing happened! It’s made me realise that although bigger dogs may be friendly, they don’t necessarily know how to be gentle with small dogs, so I am going to be a bit more careful with Cookie around larger dogs.
My friend and I went to an inner child workshop at the weekend which has left me very reflective. We did a meditation to meet our inner child, and visualised the sorts of things we’d say to them and how we might be able to help them. It’s touched some deep issues but I found it to be very powerful and am going to do more meditations to connect more with my inner child.
It was mine and Alan’s first wedding anniversary last week. I’m so grateful to have Alan in my life. He supports me without question and has been so patient throughout all these years of me studying. We’d love to go to Las Vegas again, but also New York. I think it’ll be something we save to do next year.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week. I’m going to take a week off TToT next time as we’re on holiday but will come back the week after to talk about what we got up to 🙂
