Saffy been out

Hi all, just to let you know Saffron went on a walk yesterday and today but I've kept her on her lead. Everything seems good, the stitches are looking great and still in place. Today hubby and I went to see mum and she treated us to lunch as it's our 24th wedding anniversary tomorrow, very nice. I made soap when we got back from mums and it's all labelled and ready to be put away. Must get on with some ironing in a minute. I can't believe how warm it is ATM. I think I read it might touch the 80 degree mark this week, will have to wait and see. Think that's me done, Linda x

Hi all, just a quick note to let you know Saffron is doing really well after her op. I've hardly seen her licking her leg or her elbow where the stitches are. I think she's a bit fed up of staying in but I might take her out on a lead walk on the weekend, depending on the weather that is. Hope all is well in blogland, Linda x

Today 19th Sept

Hello there everyone. Saffy had her little op done today. I took her down the doggy docs about 9.15 and I left her about 9.40. I came home and took Poppy over the field and when I got back Saffy was ready to be taken home. The lump was taken off under local anaesthetic and she has about 3 stitches. There is no medicine for her and she needs to stay in for a few days as the wound is right on the elbow which is quite awkward as it's a pressure point. The stitches have to stay in for 2 weeks. Yesterday I was busy making soap and really enjoyed myself. I received my dead sea salts today so over the next couple of weeks might make some bath salts. Been busy tidying up the mess from my soap making and doing some hovering. Not much else happened so nothing else to write about really. Must mention though my cousin is over here from Oz so should catch up with her soon as she'll be staying for a few days. Linda x

Saffy today

Hi all. I took Saffy down to the vets today as she was going to have a small lump removed from her elbow but she had the runs and brought up bile. While the vet was going over her before taking her in for her op he could hear her tummy making terrible noises. We both agreed it wouldn't be great for her to be poked and prodded when she was under the weather so we have put the op back until next Monday. He plans to do it under local as she is so laid back, he thinks she'll be fine. I kept her in all day today apart from the trip to the doggy dogs but she wasn't happy. After the vets I went over & picked mum up and we had a trip to Tesco and then home for lunch. I bought some chicken for Saffy and after I'd cooked some rice for her as well she had a tiny bit of chicken and rice after not eating for 24 hrs, I'll give her another couple of spoonfuls before bed too. It's such a shame when pets are ill as they don't understand what we're trying to do for them. Poppy is full of beans and enjoyed her walk, just the 2 of us. I'm off again tomorrow so it's back to the painting of the magic doors, I'm getting bit fed up of them now. Linda x

Back from a short break

Hi all. Came back from our 5 night cruise yesterday, had a lovely time. Went to Belgium, Holland, France and Guernsey. Visited the Delft factory in Holland, The Hague, Ghent, Honfleur, such a pretty place and Guernsey. Never been to the last place and it was lovely and had really lovely weather. We went to the underground hospital but it was really a shell unlike the one in Jersey. Lots of history on Guernsey because of the war. I'd like to visit there again. The ship was the new Queen Elizabeth that has now replaced the old QE2, lovely ship and funnily enough it was on Watchdog the other night about the way tipping is done onboard. Poppy and Saffy were super pleased to see us when we picked them up yesterday morning after we arrived back. Poor old Saffron had to wear a lampshade to stop her getting to her leg and when we first arrived she was rushing in and out of the kennel banging her collar on the side of the walls. I took them straight over the field for a nice long walk which they seemed to enjoy, can't think why. On board the Q Elizabeth they have a pizza station where you can have fresh pizzas to order, I must admit to having 3 or 4 while I was onboard. Came back yesterday and found out the recycling hadn't gone because of the bank holiday so was busy doing some gardening and cutting the grass so I could put the clippings out today, just managed to finish about 7.30 pm just before it got dark. Been up the back today and have been painting the door again. Can't afford to slack now as my cousin from Oz will be visiting soon and I would like to have matching doors upstairs. Back to reality today as I did 4 washes. Got 3 on the line and didn't bother to put the last lot out as they are shirts and won't take long to dry indoors in the spare bedroom, ironing tomorrow. Bye for now, lovely day here, Linda x
