this was the week that was.......

Oh hell, thank the gods that that one is OVER. FINI..... Dog dog dog... In my diminished world of sick dog, even the school half term dimmed by comparison to thrusting tablets down doggy throats & rushing sick doggy into vets! I am mentally devoid of coherent speech & recognized thought patterns. Give Me Strength........

Well, Lucy-Piglet has made a Full Recovery after what you just might call a 'close shave', well a very close one in fact! The stitches have come out this morning, so all l can say is thanks to the team at Garth Vets in Beeford and rabbits beware - she's back - be afraid, be very afraid!

Other things did happen last week, for example we were busy over half term week. Children seem to crawl out of the woodwork & take over the place, obviously enjoying the late summer weather [joke], scampering around having great fun! Just discovered today that the west yorkshire schools are on half term this week, 'nought like bein' prepared like'.

Other fun things, included our summer chap from Nova Scotia, leaving, returning home before a round the world trip which will no doubt include him indulging in any number of extreme sports. This guy does in real life what all the gameboy / xbox /nintendo surfing - snowboarding - skateboarding games allow the couch potato to do in the comfort of their living rooms! Awesome dude! Well, to celebrate his return or weep at his leaving, we held a party. A fancy dress party in fact. Boy were there some good costumes! There were zombies, fairies, cavemen, pirates plus the Vicar of Dibley thrown in for good measure!

Hopefully now, things WILL return to normal? Autumn mists, falling leaving and parties. I seem to be doing quite well on the party front at the moment. Three in a week no less. Two fancy dress & one black tie. Saturday night's effort involved loads of white make-up, absinthe, zombie's drool & something else made from red bull & black vodka? Hmm can't remember exactly.... not bad really it was quite an experience drinking absinthe in the company of one's son!! Hazza's excuse was The Green Fairy, so what was mine?

Sounds like you're having a good time at the moment - who came as the Vicar of Dibley?

I absolutely love the Vicar of Dibley! So does Amy!

Sorry to hear about the unwell dogs. Lots of tlc needed there I suspect.

I do like a good party...good for you, you deserve it after your hectic summer, though parties can be a bit hectic too...

No excuse needed for Absinthe dear, sounds like you needed it after your trying week, glad LP is now home.

Sorry to hear about your dog not being well, she looks lovely too. Hope she and Piglet are better now. Josh, my lab, is not well either - found an ugly pink mass inside his cheek in mouth so taking him today to vet. Need husband home as I can't hold him, poor vet - I had to say I didn't want the lady one who would have no show. Worried about him.

Am in catch up mode, remember you from "back there" but not what you do, sounds like children are involved??? Look forward to keeping up and reading more.

Yeah it gets a bit worrying drinking when your kids are drinking too
Sounds like you've got a great social life at the moment

Glad L-P is on the mend. If dog recovery goes acording to plan you'll be cursing her next. (Having promised that you'd never-ever say a word against her again?)

Enjoy the parties!

Glad to hear Lucy Piglet is OK. Life is clearly busy, but sounds like fun!

Have been having a mammoth catch up and left comments. So glad to hear LP is recovered. Phew.

You have been busy.
Enjoy the parties. We are getting into Halloween mode here-boys are dressing up tomorrow night and at the weekend for it!

warmest wishes
