Running more than a bit late. I think we are both catching up on our beauty sleep - one needs it more than the other but I'll let you decide which is which.
First a crop from another sign of Spring to come which should be recognisable.
No prizes - just for fun.
I can't wait for Winter to end. The past three days the maximum temperature has been +2C. If I put on any more layers when we go walk-about I'm sure I will get mistaken for the Michelin Man. At least it looks as though there will be a small upward movement in temperature starting tomorrow.
Last week was fraught. Penny's tummy problems only seemed to get worse so on Friday I phoned the vet and within a couple of hours she was being examined. She left evidence in the waiting room of how bad she was so there was no disputing that! Penny was taken off the anti-inflammatory tablets and put on a course of antibiotics. The vet said her problem would clear up quickly and sure enough by the end of Sunday she was back in normal food vacuum cleaner mode and we were both getting a full night's sleep once again. The vet was pleased with the healing progress of her gums after the two extractions though they do still hurt a little so she is staying with soft food for a while longer.
This morning a replacement arrived for Monty the Moose - Monty Jnr - which she immediately fell in love with and spent ages making sure he would squeak and grunt as well as the first one.
I wonder how much hurling about this one will take before it starts to fall apart.
Our Narrowest Defeat Yet
