Well that was a bit of a shocker. The cat was less than amused and as you can see went to ground....or to blanket. 18-22 degrees then bam a sprinkling of snow and then -4 chez nous on Tuesday morning with fog. Luuuverly.
It has been a bit of a weird week Tom, our nearly 12 year old dog, has not been very mobile (probably the stress of the temperature drop) and as seems to be typical with most animals decided that during the weekend would be the best time to say that, no, he was not going to improve, but as he was still eating and wobbling to the garden we waited till Monday before going to the vet. So after some severe manipulation and some anti inflammatories......
......he decides the stick game is the thing to do. Honestly Border Collies! I wish I had his energy.
Gavin has also decided his mobility is not going to improve, so even though he was still eating and wobbling into the garden, he decided a trip to the doctor was overdue and has been filled up with sinovial fluid in his knees and given anti-inflammatories. He then decided that the stick game would be a good thing to play using his BRAND NEW glasses but now can't remember where he threw them. 3 days later he is still looking and has successfully retrieved some scissors, a teaspoon, a jam jar lid and Number 3's old slipper.
So some busy weeks ahead for us 3 weekends of 3 markets, then one weekend of 2 markets and then potentially a house move for my Stepmum and then it is that delightful event that everyone is looking forward to..... sleep......oh yes and Christmas.
I am majorly disaorganised this year I have only nearly bought one present. So I am not panicking yet my record for Christmas shopping has been to do the whole lot in one afternoon in Intermarche Montpon. However the kids were smaller then.
Wishing allthose disorganised people the very best of luck.
See you all soon
