We’re still here getting better. Nothing to report other than Daisy’s new drug that she takes before meals is doing a brilliant job and sorting out all the issues that were causing horrid problems. The puppy is just brilliant and is without doubt our mobile comfort blanket and is now totally settled by the Aga, on the chair, on the sofa, on the other dogs’ beds; wherever she’s just not allowed really. Every time a new dog moves in the rules steadily get forgotten and our house gets steadily chewed. Good job I just couldn’t care less. We had a fab time yesterday doing lots of ordinary things like some jobs at the barns, chatting to the cleaners and helping with the linen, coffee and huge chocolate muffin at Costa, a visit to one of the Dockers’ fine residences where Daisy met Hazel the guinea pig, 2 Bedlingtons and some frogspawn.
Deb Riley has had the parish knitting and crocheting Daisy bracelets and necklaces which are now turning into a real winner with everyone and she’s got an order book underway! Cancer Research is getting the proceeds. The daisy pin is £2 and bracelets £2.50. Get one, they’re really cool, from Debs: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Debbie memorably brought a French knitting doll for Daisy to do while we were in hospital and it was a brilliant idea only to find the crocheting hook was actually a lethal weapon that you’d never get on a plane with so she took it home, did it herself and hasn’t yet stopped.
Birmingham tomorrow for a kidney test followed by cinema and a surprise visit from a family member that Daisy knows nothing about. Hopefully we’ll get some good weather at the weekend before we go in next week.
