I’m aware that to many of you my week wont seem as crazy as it did to me, but it’s been a busy one by my standards.
Monday I was dog sitting while the parentals took part in Garden Action, a group of expats who help manage the gardens of those who are struggling. That was not where my busy week started though.
Tuesday I spent the whole day on pins, my anxiety getting gradually worse and worse as it got closer and closer to bowling night. Mum and I did some food shopping which was a bit of a distraction and some friends popped in in the afternoon. In the end I couldn’t go bowling, I was just too anxious about it sadly.
On Wednesday I was anxious again as it was our first session at the intermediate dog agility training class. Fortunately I held it together and it went pretty well. But this is where the big news happened, we came home with not only our two pooches, but also a kitten! Our new addition is called Amelia Jane and has settled in well! It’s just a case of getting our dogs to accept her now. TiLi is fine really and just wants to play, but Rupert seems to be very jealous and not like her at all, so baby steps until they make friends!
Thursday saw us head back to our friends’ house to finish off the Garden Action by weed killing their drive. We also took the opportunity to give the dogs a walk to give them a break from the kitten’s smells and the stress of knowing she’s around.
And today we’re off dog agility training again, Friday is our usual training day so I’m not so anxious about going today, it will also give me chance to ask the trainers for any tips on jealous pooches and helping them bond with the kitten. We’ve decided to keep going on Friday’s along with doing the Wednesday class so that TiLi gets into the swing of things more and I get a bit more exercise too!
As I say, that might not sound a crazy week to you, but I’m used to the quiet life! This week has been mad busy for me and I’m struggling for spoons at the moment. I’m also a bit headachey of late, possibly stress or maybe, but hopefully not, down to my reduction in medication.
