I did not want to wake up this morning and still felt stiff and achy when I first got up. I had to walk Anzac fairly early as I was going into the city to meet a good friend who I haven’t seen for almost 18 months. It’s not a good idea to leave Anzac unwalked for too long, boredom and pent-up Border Collie energy isn’t a good match.
It was threatening rain, misting lightly when we headed out and continued to threaten rain for the whole walk. We didn’t go as far as usual, just down to Burns Beach and back; a little over 5km. I took a ball and we had a little ball chasing in the park, but that doesn’t work as well as the ball chasing at home. At home Anzac knows he has to bring the ball right back and drop it at our feet or in our lap if we’re sitting. In the park he’s mad keen to chase and catch the ball, but doesn’t bring it back. He just drops it, sometimes as soon as he’s caught it, and goes into ‘ready’ position. He never brings it back. I’m not sure how to deal with that. It’s certainly something we need to work on.
It was great to see Donna. She was with her daughter and youngest grandbaby. I hadn’t seen her grandchildren before and didn’t get to meet the older one as she had gone to Bunnings with her dad. We wandered around the shops, had some lunch and then went and did some more shopping – and talked, a lot! HaHa!
Then it was time for me to catch the train back home so I could be ready in time to pick Stephen up from the airport. At the moment the flights are coming back from Telfer earlier than usual. He has only one more mine visit after this one.
Oh, and I’ve realised that Donna and I didn’t get a photo of us together! Darn!
