After that we got talking, and it was well past 3am by the time they headed home. I sat up until they texted to say they'd arrived home safely and then headed off to bed.
Today was a pretty laid-back day; pottered about the place before heading to the supermarket. Late afternoon my sister invited me to join her on her dog-walking expedition, and I took control of her littlest dog while she had her blind dog in hand. He's amazing, you'd never realise he was blind just by looking at him; he trots along in front of her like any full-sighted dog, just happy to be out and about.
After all the walking, though, both yesterday and today, I can barely stand upright tonight. Feet are sore, thighs are sore, calves are tight... bed will be welcome.
