I went down to the river today where I thought I could relax in the sunshine and work on my age play novel. I had been promising my husband for a while that I would take a day’s annual leave and go and watch him row, and I also thought my dog would enjoy a nice relaxing morning by the river. I watched hubby row away and out into the distance then I spread my blanket out on the grass and lay down. I chose a spot close to the river where there’s steps leading down into some shallow water, where I thought Boo could paddle in and out of the water.
I’d just settled down and was writing away quite happily when Boo came back and decided that my bottom would be a nice cushion, climbed onto my back and settled herself down. She was wet and it was not exactly pleasant having a wet dog snoozing on my bum, but I continued to write. She then got up and wandered round to the front of me where I had a bowl of water for her. She had a drink, shook her soggy beard in my face, put her paw in the water bowl and ‘threw’ water at me. I swear she is naughtier than me sometimes!!!
For the next hour she paddled in and out of the water, each time making sure she then paddled across my book, so all my writing has nice dirty foot prints all over it. I might not have got a massive amount written, but I did make a small amount of progress and it was nice to ‘relax’.
