Thanks for the kind comments about the dog, she has started on the meds - one tablet a day on the lowest dose. The vet says it will take several weeks to kick in and she has to have regular blood tests to monitor the dose. I've worked out that we will now have to find an extra £70 per month to cover the tablets and blood tests. This will mean another juggling of the budget, she is worth it, but it is sure expensive, I think pets now are becoming a luxury. I dont think we will have another dog for quite some time once Rhonda has gone.
Did anyone see the tv programme the town that never retired. We did and it worried us both, we have worked out that we will both have to work well into our sixties before we get any pensions. What concerns me is the impact on our health that this will have, perhaps the government are hoping that by extending the retirement age, no one will retire as we will have all been killed off!! Beloved has been having problems with his shoulders and has a GP appt. We both think this is an effect of his job and I think he is developing arthritis, how are older people to supposed to carry on working in physically demanding jobs? I am really trying not to let such thoughts worry me, but the programme was concerning. What was sad was the apparent lack of work ethic in several of the young people that were attempting to find work. I wondering what sort of future these young people would have.
Anyway focussing on the here and now and the house move is moving along, the survey has been completed and waiting now to exchange contracts. Fingers crossed. I know I moan about money, but there are a number of reasons we are moving and financially things will change again for us, but there's never a dull moment when you are juggling the finances!! Till next time and take care all.
