Had Gwenna at the physio today. No hydrotherapy yet, but we have land based exercises to do. We go back in two weeks.

More lovely autumn weather. Only 4C this morning but warm and sunny in the afternoon.

I weeded the bed along the West Range and planted out some herbaceous plants I’d accumulated. It’s hardly planned planting but it should give a bit of colour. It also emptied a few of the pots on the patio, which is good. Found loads of bulbs.

Dan pressed the last of the Grenadier, mixed it with the last of the Discovery, and got 12 litres of juice.


Friday 16th September

Gwenna back at our vet; more meds, but she’s doing fine. Diesel comes on walks to make sure we cope.

Sunday 18th September

It was my reunion with some girls I was at school with. For some of us, it had been 43 years since we last saw each other. It was brilliant. We’re going to do it again next year.

There won’t be a diary entry next week as my daughter and I are off on holiday. Dan’s in charge.
