It was also a pleasant surprise to walk in on Loki asleep in the big crate this morning. Somehow over night the door to the smaller one had been pushed closed, cats maybe? Whatever at least he was using it, and from choice.
Well small world, that friend was one of our neighbours, the one who gave us the old picture of
the house. Whilst talking he told us about the layout of our cottage as he remembered it. There were bedrooms (plural) both sides of the cottage (now living room and kitchen), the living room was the middle room and the kitchen I guess was the utility room. (As it was when I first moved in) I should have asked where the bathroom was, but didn't and I'm now intrigued - there must have been a bathroom at that time? Our bathroom and bedroom is in the extension which was built later. I questioned the 3 chimneys in the
photo, and he remembers there was a fire place in both sides of the cottage for the bedrooms as well as in the living room. (middle room) So yeah three chimneys and don't forget the barn which was also attached to the main cottage! I would love to see photos, someone somewhere must have some?
Whilst here Dafydd our neighbour asked about my health. I told him I was doing well but for the fatigue. I told him I walked in the mornings and slept in the afternoons. He told me I shouldn't complain as I was still here to be able to walk in the mornings, point made! Sometimes I do think some people don't get it, I'm not lazy honestly, it comes like a wave over me and all I can do it stop and sleep. For some SAH survivors this reduces with time, for others it stays with them forever. I'm considered to still be very early on in recovery after a SAH so for now I have to go with the flow.
Sammi hasn't eaten again this morning, but is still fine in herself. I find she prefers to eat later in the day. I've come to the conclusion that if she's not pregnant then she is going in for a full blown phantom. We had this experience with Krizzie, she was mated and missed, but she was so convinced she was pregnant she even had me doubting myself. She even started nesting and on the due date was that convincing I ended up staying up all night with her ... the next day there where no puppies and it was all over and done with. Anyway not long to wait and prepare for the future, or cope with the disappointment.
