Now you see it – Monday 11th December 2023

Now you see it

Our internet connection was playing now you see it, now you don’t – all weekend. You can’t believe the effect it has on the humans. What would they do without it altogether? – that’s what I want to know. It is all very well them depending on something like that, but I don’t think it’s good for them. I suppose I use it for my diary, and for my food orders. You would think the internet going meant good news for us, but oddly it’s the other way around. That’s how they watch tv and we all like sitting on the settee on a wet Sunday – except Mum, she’s not good at sitting down at any time!

Duvet day

Dad had a duvet day reading a book. I went and jumped on him from time to time, to check he was still awake. What was nice was him thinking I’m much more athletic than I’ve been in a while. I hadn’t really thought about it, but I am finding jumping much easier at the moment. I guess losing some weight is good for me after all.

Mum did a few bits in the garden with Aristotle between the rain showers. He had a very poorly upset tummy, but says it has actually left him feeling better than he was. He now thinks it might have been more that than his abscess returning, but we’ll see. He is fed up as one of his sets of Christmas lights has stopped working. He thought it was the batteries, but they seem to have broken and Mum can’t find what’s wrong.

The week ahead

We’re hoping the week ahead will be more about building things and making things start to look a little more presentable. Mum says there shouldn’t be any more digging and hopefully not quite so much mud. On the downside there may be more people coming in and out of the house, which is all very stressful for us all. An engineer is coming to see if they can fix the internet this afternoon, which will at least make the humans happy.
