Morning all! A much welcome day off here: I've the washing done, the pastry base for a tart in the fridge chilling, some drawings done (for a Great Fire Of London display at work), and now I must rest before my spine throws a complete tantrum (even mild painkillers it seems set off my stomach problems so I'm trying to resist going to the doctor to get back on the harsh painkillers I used to take unless it gets much worse and hopefully I can force the subject of pain patches).
Its amazing how much you get done while pacing the house waiting for the vets to call Poor Reggie having cut his paw badly is now hopefully well onto the way to having an operation to de-bridle it and sew it up as he'd snapped the staples and didn't like the idea of "months and months" of resting (no walks!) if we let it heal naturally. He's not having a good time: his lordship wouldn't let me get him snipped while he was under as he didn't think that fair. Men! I was more concerned about the whole needing another general anaesthetic.
Right. I'd best get that kettle on: anyone need anything? I need to make a run to the shops for butter to make some biscuits so get your shopping lists in!
