We've been at our daughters for a few days and should by rights still be there, but the best laid plans etc. First of all I've not been too well whilst I've been there, then on Saturday one of her dogs, Bonnie, a beautiful black lab, couldn't stand up and there seemed to be a problem with her back legs and by Sunday she was in obvious pain, so an emergency trip to the vets, x-rays, tests, etc. and then told that they thought it would be best to put her to sleep if she was no better on Monday. Monday came and a phone call from the vet to say she had made a miraculous recovery and was walking now. She's now back at home, having to be very quiet, on pain killers and hopefully will continue to recover, together with a bill for £500!
I went into Colchester to seek out a shop which Hels mentioned and picked up these fabby boxes from there. Can't wait to decorate them.
On Tuesday lunchtime we had some lovely French bread and as I bit into it, we heard a crack and guess what, I have broken one of my front teeth, horror of horrors, it just broke off by the gum. Straight on phone to dentist, receptionist said if I could get there for 11.30 this morning it could be fixed. Got up early, did the journey in 3 hours only to be told by Bruno, my dentist, that he was going on a course this afternoon, so didn't have time to fix it and was so busy will not be able to fix it until a week next Monday. So that means that I've got a gaping hole, it looks terrible. Anyway, there was a message from consultant on ansaphone, plus a letter in post to say that I'd go to contact him as a matter of urgency. Turns out my liver function is at dangerous levels, so had to hot foot it down to hospital this afternoon for tests etc. Now just got to wait for results when he rings me tomorrow, but that explains why I've not been feeling too well again.
I showed Charlotte, my granddaughter who is 7, how to zentangle, and this is what she did, all her own work. I think she's done a great job. I told her that I'd put it on my blog and she's going to log on tonight to see it, so she will be thrilled, bless, aren't grandchildren precious.
Don't think I'll get round everyone tonight on WOYWW, but will tomorrow.
