Mc, I'm so sorry to hear that your mum is poorly, I can understand how worrying it is! I'm an only but I'm pretty sure that, in your situation, I would be feeling more than a little miffed too!
Meldy, it's good to know that the grey lad is doing well
Dragon, glad that you have a replacement car in the pipeline. Hope the wait isn't too inconvenient for you.
Podds, the child from hell sounds . . . erm . . . hellish!
Well done Daffs! Sorry that your sis is having a tough time.
Westie, how quickly your grand adventure has come round! Hope you have a relaxing trip first.
We have had a couple of lovely days here. Met SIL and family friend at the riverside pub at lunchtime. Friend was saying that she had never seen a kingfisher, so we pointed out nest hole and kingfishers kindly performed to order. In fact, they were in the general area but not in and out of the hole, so I wonder if this year's clutch have fledged? We also watched an egret and a pike but Mr Heron was not in sight.
Mum did have her plaster removed on Friday, she now has a splint to wear when her wrist feels sore. I suspect she will either wear it 24/7 or not at all!
Jenni, I do think it helps to run with a faster group sometimes. If you always run on your own, at your own pace, there is little to challenge you.
Mc, I'm glad that your mum came through the op OK. Hope she had a comfortable night with her post-op pain well controlled. Hope you managed to get some sleep too!
Ooh, DL, a day in Londinium? You iz well grown up!
It's not nearly as nice here today, although still dry (for now). Went out for coffee and cake with SM, then cut her nails etc when we got home.She is desperate to get the plaster off, I'm not sure how she will react if they say it has to stay on for a while longer!
Hope that everyone else has a day that runs smoothly.
I am so sorry to hear that DL As you say, letting her go without further suffering was clearly the right things to do for her. Does anyone want to run a book on how long you will remain a 1 cat household?
(((Dragon))) that sounds quite a prang! I hope you are not developing hurty places as the day goes on!
(((Podds))) it does sound as if you made the right decision.
(((Jenni))) that is a lovely attitude.
MS and I have been for a dental check-up this afternoon and I have collected my new specs. TBH, the frames are not hugely different from my current glasses but I needed a change of prescription so decided to go for new frames too. With the cost of the sight test that cost me the best part of £400 The weather has been lovely again, think we will take SM to see the sea if it is like this tomorrow.
