This little lady gave birth to six kittens last Wednesday. I am a proud 'grandparent' and we are off to the foster carer to view them all. I cannot wait and we have a load of food, litter, etc to bring along. Another several weeks and she should be coming home and hopefully with one of the kittens. If not one of Maisie's then certainly one of the kittens they are currently inundated with.

I wasn't going to post but this was good news I wanted to share.

I am taking a sabbatical from the blog as I really haven't got a lot to say and there are things I need to attend to in real life. Later this month I will start some redecorating and we will be clearing out old rubbish. I am hoping that starting on just the one room will kick start me to decorating other rooms. I hate decorating but it needs to be done. I am also off to Ireland at some point although given my current workload that might be the beginning of October. I plan to have a couple of weeks off and drive over plus a week at home to recover. Work is busy and the atmosphere is extremely odd. Rumours are flying around and we suspect plans are being made to change the service and shake up teams. We'll see... I shall catch up with you all in several weeks time so until then

Ta Ta For Now!

Despite my cold I ventured out yesterday as sustenance was needed and the moggies needed some grub. I spent some time leaning over the barrier and watching the fish when the pike put in an appearance. The Riverhead predator lurking like a U-boat awaiting its prey. Beautiful sleek creature but deadly and I am thankful they don't grow too big. I also enjoyed watching a family of moorhens amongst the reeds, the babies following in a line and then scattering as something catches their eye. A beautiful day and not much of a walk but I was drenched in sweat on my return and in need of a nap!

With glorious sunshine I sat out in the garden and soaked up the sun. Just the tonic required to chase away colds and the blues. Today I might even venture out with the lawn mower and tackle the grass but leave the weeding to another day. Hopefully wherever you are, the weather is perfect and you are enjoying life with good company and a beverage of your choice.

A busy week and a further visit to the vet because the pooch was not at all well. A skin growth had become infected hence the diarrhoea and the horrible smell emanating from her. A one off injection and a course of oral antibiotics has seen a huge improvement in the hairy monster. I think I am now working to pay veterinary bills but she is worth it. We believe she scratched at the growth hidden below her ear and I only noticed when I was checking her mouth to ascertain where the horrible smell was coming from. Not at all pleasant and something we will have to keep an eye on.

Otherwise I have been very busy at work as August seems to be one of the busiest months. Staff holidays, doctor changeover and school holidays are possible contributors to this. My plans for the next four days off depend on the dreadful cold I have acquired from Mrs C. Tissues, Olbas Oil and paracetamol are the order of the day. I'd like it to go because this event is on tomorrow and a certain aircraft is attending which I am very excited about. A banging head, dizziness, runny nose and a constant desire to sleep is currently not conducive to my attending the show. Fingers crossed because it does look like an exciting event.
