Meanwhile Ratty is back to the vet tomorrow, to get her dressing changed, so I'll be working from home again. It's good not to have to travel into the city but I do miss working with other people (and didn't that little discovery surprise me). And I miss my daily walk to and from the bus stop, but am far too lazy and unmotivated to walk just for the sake of walking. Now if I had a dog to take for walks, that would be motivation enough.
At the moment, having a dog is really out of the question. I'm away from the house for far too long each day, it wouldn't be fair on the animal. At least the cats can sleep the day away. Still, when I retire, I plan on adopting a greyhound. They are such sweet-natured dogs, very calm and loving, and also rather lazy so they should fit in quite well *g*. And they're gorgeous dogs - just look at those little faces! I want All The Dogs!
