The sun is shining, and the tomatoes finally want a share! I’ve got four little shoots coming up on the window sill. Hurrah!!
Not much on the agenda though I might make some letter cards to send off this week.
These posts are great for keeping a track of what day it is, but is anyone having difficulty remembering what was done and how long ago? My timeframe has gone for a bucket of chalk so I’m keeping a diary of what we’re having for dinner now as three day stew or two day chilis are all well and good, but what have we had in between?
Shopping days are little and large once a week to ten days, so a big shop in the town 20 miles away and a small shop locally for milk and bread. We’re keeping on top of it, and the queues outside aren’t too bad. We’re even given a spray on the hands on the way in and an antibacterial wipe on the way out with a request to wipe the trolley handles down when we take it back. Good plan.
Hubby asked me how long Maggie had been poorly and I was trying to work it backwards. She had her op at the end of February and had been on antibiotics before that as well as after, so it’s no surprise really that her system has taken a hammering. The loose motions had been on and off for a while, but we did as we are now and it settled down, then came back with a vengeance last week.
No messing about, no treats (sulks), no titbits (whines), no dinner (mopes) and then only rice (is that all???), chicken being added for two of the small portions every day (OK, I’ll let you off) and perhaps a little bit of chicken on its own ‘as a treat’ (wow, thanks!) so that she doesn’t think she’s missing out.
We were worried on Saturday and rang the vet, hence knew they were in shutdown other than for emergencies. We were given the above advice, but if it got worse, then to call on Monday. We had the beginning of positive motions yesterday and this morning so will stick with it this week. As said in previous posts, her nose is cold and wet, her eyes bright, and she still wants to go for her walks. She’s not drinking as much as we’d like, but she is drinking, so we’re making sure her water is always fresh and changed at least twice a day.
OK then, time to get dinner, day two of our chili, so more rice with chicken in the fridge in readiness for our baby. The egg was polished off this morning with no problem.
