(((Yums and Mrs Dawg))) such a worry when they are ill and you don't know what's wrong (such a worry when they are ill and you do know what's wrong!)!
Meldy, glad to hear that Murph seems to be doing well, does he have to wear special shoozies?
Great cycling Podds! How is the ladygarden today? On another note, how are your houndieboys, is Sharkie 100% now?
Lovely to hear tales of the Muppets Dragonlady. How old is Shaddow now?
Fortunately the partie only lasted a couple of hours - which makes me feel curmudgeonly for moaning! It would have been far more tolerable if we had known it wouldn't last long.
SM had an assessment by someone from the Alzheimer's Association today. She did really well with the recent stuff but forgot she had a sister and a grandson! She then confidently gave today's date as 3rd August 1975... The next step will be a further assessment at the memory clinic.
Well Parkrunned Pippi, that's a good time with no training.
Happy swotting Meldy. How is the FGO's 'oof?
There's a lot to be said for a good sleep MC
It's a lovely day here. We have all doors and windows closed tightly. Some people a few doors down the road are having, what sounds like, a country and western themed party. MS has asked them to turn it down a notch but it is still so loud that I have my earplugs in. Dog knows how long it will go on for but I think we will be fighting over the spare bed (which is at the back of the house)!
(((Daffs))) this is certainly not like you, you are usually able to be cheery even in adversity. I do hope the holiday restores your good spirits.
Podds, your heart must sink when you meet some of the new parents! Thankfully, due to people like you, the kids will get the chance to learn a different way of doing things.
Sounds as if you needed the lie-in Jenni!
Nice to see you MC.
Hurrah for your rain Chuggy! It's actually very nice here today, sunny but not humid
I managed to snag a couple of sale items on Monday, including this top (which cost the same in the local store as it would have online) and a summer dress for the same price. Hope I get the chance to wear it!
(((Meldy))) sorry you have a told in dor dose. I spect that is what led you to expect Chuggy to make plum jam from peaches...
I wonder how long the country can continue to run on a shoe string?? Saw my GP yesterday and he is totally fed up and longing to retire (we were both born in the same year).
The issue with the cat sitter is that she doesn't appear to have come at all! This is someone who does this for a living and cited 'family problems' as the reason. She also swears that she did visit and feed them - but none of the food we had left had been used! Need to arrange a vist to return our key and discuss payment. She says she will deduct the times she didn't visit from the bill, will have to see exactly what she reckons she did do (she was supposed to be there for 15 mins in the mornings and 30 in the evenings. Lock cat flap at night/open in morning; clean out litter trays;put bins out. None of those jobs had been done!).
Anyhoo, we are off to see 'Annie' at Southampton this arvo so need to get moving.
