It has been made even more quiet as T gave R his bad-ass flu-cold thing. I think that's pretty sweet of him really, sharing everything with his wife. However, I don't think R shares my views...
The bug (they call it a bug, but although I have searched and searched for something to chase, I can't find anything.) has meant R has not been on the ball at all, meaning my breakfast has been served a tad later than usual, and she is not good about opening the door to let me out and then in, and out again...and in again. And then when I am tired from playing outside and decide I want to go and lie on her, she spends the whole time sneezing and coughing preventing me from getting a good days sleep.
It's not just the daytime either - I have been reduced to sleeping on a dining table chair at night, as my usual spot - either on R, or taking up half their king size bed - has not been very restful with R coughing and sniffing, tossing and turning.
I can safely say Albie's hate flu-colds.
Albie's love conkers!
I loved to play with them after T and R went to bed, but they didn't appear share this love, so the conkers have been shut away in a cupboard to be solely used for daytime play.
Oh! Oh! I had an adventure the other day.
My explorations led me to the front of the house (usually I stay in the back alleyway). It's a bit more frightening out the front as more of those loud cars zoom past and there are more people walking up and down the street, but sometime you just gotta step outta the safety net, y'know?
Anyway, there I was, innocently sniffing around in a flower bed looking for another dragonfly to catch, when I came face to face with... a dog!
This black 'thing' was on a lead (ha ha! Sucks to be a dog) and it stared at me as I stared back at it. Now, I will let you in to a secret - I was very scared of this beast but wasn't willing to back down, so I stood my ground, all the while wondering how on earth I was going to get out of this situation whilst keeping my dignity.
To my relief, the dog's human eventually tugged him away (ha ha! Totally sucks to be a dog!) and I was able to glare after them as they walked away from me.
I was composing myself when you should come walking up the street, but R! Boy, was I glad to see her!!
We walked to the front door as I told her what had just happened, and then we both went inside - through the front door (so cool, as have never done that before!) - and up the front staircase!
That sure was an exciting day!
Apart from that big excitement, I have been generally hanging around keeping an eye on the alleyway from the prime position on our balcony.
