That’s what I’ve been the past week or so …
Maybe because I’ve had this niggling ache in my arm, the past few weeks. It feels like muscular strain, you know the kind you get after a work out and you didn’t do your warm-ups well, that sort. The problem is, I don’t exercise and don’t go to the gym. On the one hand, could that be why I’m achy? Because I’m so un-exercised? Could be.
My husband thinks it’s the dog. As some of you may know, I’m the main dog-walker in our house. And Doc is, let’s just say, is a little bit too excitable at the moment and likes to pull and pull and pull, on our way to the headland. And he may not be as big as other dogs, but little T’s dog is very strong, hence the muscle strain, or so my husband thinks.
We’ve trained him how to “heel” but when out for a walk to the headland, it just doesn’t seem to work. When he pulls, I pull him back to me and say “to me”, that’s our “heel word/command”. That’s what happens, he pulls, I pull him back, he pulls, I pull him back until we reach the headland. And once he’s had his turn of running around like a loony all over, on our way home, he’s a good-boy, who’ll heel when told to. He’s just too excited when he knows that we are going to his happy-place, he goes absolutely ballistic.
So for now, I’ve been relieved off my duties as main dog-walker, let’s see if the ache goes away, I hope it does.
It’s also been a busy last week for T at school. Last Monday, she had her first ever performance for her Star Makers class, which she absolutely loved. It was lovely to see her all confident, happy and beaming on stage. My husband and I loved every single minute of watching her perform with the rest of her friends.
And yesterday, the whole school had spent a day on the beach! We had to pick her up from there to go to the dentist and I’m happy to share that the dentist has once again, declared that little T has perfect teeth. Now let’s hope this lasts, especially since she has received more than a couple of giant Easter chocolate eggs. To be fair with her, she’s really meticulous about brushing her teeth.
Later today, my husband, little T and I are off to Bristol for the weekend. He has a meeting with the OU and we’ve booked in an extra night at the hotel so we could have a city-break. I love city breaks and I love Bristol 🙂 Since we live in the country, we try to have as much city-breaks when we can. Doc will also have his short-break to see his other doggie-friends at the kennel nearby.
And then it’s Easter break! I’m really looking forward to spending more time with T, when she’s not around, I honestly miss the little kiddo 😉
What about you?
Do you have any lovely plans over the weekend or Easter?
