It's been a busy couple of days. Yesterday morning I was on Radio Humberside, they rang and asked if I could talk about money saving and frugal living. No problem I said. However, they kept me hanging on, and by the time they started the interview it was almost time for the news, so my time was cut short.
Ten minutes later they rang back and apologised for not giving me much air time and asked if I could go on again, they offered me a slot for tomorrow morning (Thursday), at 10.30am. I am going on the bus to the studio in Hull to do it this time, I much prefer it that way. David Burns is easy to chat with. You should be able to listen live by going to the BBC iplayer site. Sorry but I don't think it is available if you are outside the UK.Try this link
My fresh food stocks have been shrinking as I haven't done a big shop for two weeks, so now it's 'use up whatever is in the fridge' time. I had a pot of Value potato salad which needed to be eaten, but I have no salad to go with it. Not to worry, I have plenty of bread and half a cucumber, so why not toast the bread and microwave the potato salad and cucumber. Sorted. So this was my lunch yesterday. I must say it was a bit different, warm potato salad. I ate it but I probably won't do it again, ha ha.
Me and Rocky were walking along the riverbank yesterday, and in the space of five minutes, five different boats passed us by, either heading towards the Humber to go out to sea, or coming inland to go to a port further up the river. It is quite difficult to navigate this section as it has a lot of sandbanks. You can see the boats zigzaging along from one side to the other. One of the boats was too far past for me to get a photo, but I got the other four. I love to see a lot of activity on the river. I think they mostly carry aggregate and scrap steel.
Rocky waiting patiently, he is such a good boy.
I was talking to Rocky's owner, yesterday she said she might not come home, she didn't. I said I would have him if her car wasn't in the drive. So here he stayed. He slept on the bed with me and two cats, it was a bit of a tight squeeze as they all wanted to be up at the top end. A lot of shuffling took place. This is his favourite chair, next to me while I am on the computer. He's still here now, when the car appears I will take him back. At least he is getting out a bit more now. He is starting to learn how to socialise with people and other dogs, which is a good thing.
