Presented in glorious technicolour and now in HD

I’m on a long weekend as of today, so this morning I spent a few hours with DTWP whilst Tea took little Miss Molly along to the vet. She needed blood tests and general checkups to ensure that the meds for Cushing’s disease is right for her and that she is having the right amount of insulin. We’ll know for sure tomorrow. Tea has to ring them in the morning to see if the tablets are in and to get the results of the tests. Molly’s been with us just under a week now and so far so good. DTWP has been absolutely brilliant with her. There’s been no aggression from him and he’s even attempted to encourage her to play. When they go in the garden he runs around like the mad pup he is, come to a dead stop watching Molly then he runs away from her, stops, looks for her and tries to get her to chase him. To no avail! Bless him, he hasn’t figured out that she can’t see him, he drops toys for her to play with, which she just walks over, and Doogs looks all downtrodden because she won’t play. But I’m really pleased that the whole thing’s gone down so well. Despite the views of certain people who think that Doogie’s going to be treated differently, quite the opposite in fact. If anything Tea and myself are showing more affection than normal to him to ensure that he doesn’t feel left out. He’s still the best pup in the world and nothing will ever change that.

There’s been a development on the home entertainment front at home, after much discussion and negotiation; Tea’s given me the OK to get a few more TV channels in. To be honest 4 stations is rubbish especially at the moment when every single blooming channel is covering the bloody election, YAWN! The only problem is that it isn’t being installed until May 12th, by then the election tat will be long done. Oh well, at least it’ll be in before the world cup. Although Tea has said that she will be watching the England matches. I’m sorry but no matter how hard I try I just can’t get enthusiastic about football. I never have liked it and I never will. I get told that as a patriot and someone who’s passionate about England I should get behind the “team” but I don’t think I should. 15 seriously overpaid idiots kicking a ball doesn’t rouse my sense of national pride, and I doubt they’re doing it for their love of the country, more for their love of small portraits of the Queen.

Friday is astronomy club, we’re off to Cranbrook tomorrow night, apparently they have a large ‘scope and are desperate to show it off. So I’ve taken tomorrow off work, in the morning I think I’m pup sitting if Trudes has to go to the vets, then I’m off into town to pay bills, oh joy! Then I shall drop into Hythe to have a quick cuppa at the shop before jumping on the bus to Ashford. I could go on a train but I like the bus journey, it takes about an hour and a half and uses a lot of back roads and goes through the countryside. You don’t get to enjoy that on a train. Once I get to Ashford I get a connection to Cranbrook. I say connection, I mean meet up with a couple of friends from AAS who’re also going.

Then Saturday I’m down the shop for the day and then home to settle down to Doctor Who and hopefully some form of take away, Yummo. I’m certain I’m supposed to be doing something on Sunday but I can’t remember. I expect it’ll come to me, hopefully before Sunday.

TTFN peeps, I hope you have a good, if somewhat damp, bank holiday weekend. Yes it’s a bank holiday and it’s going to rain for most of it.

PS. It’s Virgin HDTV I’m getting; now all I need is a HDTV 1080p with a minimum of 2 HDMI slots. It’ll work without a HDTV but I won’t benefit from having the HD channels until I get a compatible telly box.

Night all
