I'm not sure what it is about being back in your parents home that turns one back into a teenager, but it's just something that triggers in my brain. I'm pretty sure I was a lot better than usual, but I still wasn't a grown up. It is mostly because I like a bit of quiet, and my mother is a talker. Ah well, such is life.
Today they have headed off for their 'holiday' of two nights away, while I take care of all of their animals, half of which are actually mine! It will be pretty easy, I just hope that none of the old ones die on me, my fathers old dog in particular. He is currently wrapped up under a blanket in the back porch, and I have been checking on him regularly, as the day is rather wet and cold.
I had planned to bring in my elderly horse, and give him a bit of a tidy up today. Due to the weather that won't be happening. Fingers crossed for tomorrow, or Friday, as I'm off back home on Saturday. I have been down and given him a handful of food, and I will feed him tonight. I have also been to the pharmacy and bought a large box of antihistamines so when I do get a bit of horse time I won't get sick. I have decided to no longer let my allergies 'run' my life - inspired by the fact an olympic rider, and Bart Cummings are allergic to horses and didn't let that stop them.
Oh, it's raining heavily now! Yuck!
I also got an urge to knit. Why? Who would know. I haven't knitted since I was about 10, and I wasn't very good at it then. Don't think I knitted anything without a hole or two in it. Anyway, I have begun knitting TJL a scarf. Well what else is a beginner knitter going to attempt??!!
I am also beginning to take 'drastic' measures in my weigh loss journey (which you can follow here on Must. Lose. Weight) This is definitely not a journey that I am enjoying, but does that really need to be said? Probably not.
Ack! I hate diets!
