Owchy time

the IN/OUT of Europe referendum has stirred up an underbelly stew of misery - we're still reeling from that debacle.

also my wrist has been malfunctioning - today I went for a cortisone injection at the hospital which was really really hurty. On my way home from the hospital there was a limping man who was hurting a lot more than me and really needed the hospital so I turned around and we walked back there together with him using me as a walking stick and it must have looked like a very funny three-legged race because the path was all pot-holed and we stumbled like a pair of drunkards.

Tomorrow I am having more dental work done but afterwards I shall go back to London and look after my favourite cats while my bruises go yellow and purple.

In other news


The Birds have tolerated us poking about in their garden for long enough and have started visiting us for a good nosey around. Mrs Bird, appalled at the standards of housekeeping among humans, comes in every day to try and tidy us up. Mr Bird sometimes comes with her but he usually gets tangled in glassware or computer cables and makes things worse so she usually leaves him behind to look after the children. This is today's visit

    1. That would make the kitchen very crowded and I don't have a pie dish large enough xxx

  5. Shots? Dental work? Pot holes and limping casualties and decaying infrastructure? I hope those cats have some magic for you.

  6. And I hate to mention it but all of us superstitious people know that birds in the house are bad luck. So... there's that. You don't have any peacock feathers in there, do you?

    1. all those budgie-parroty people must be having a terrible time then. The cats are magical but they think I've killed their human so they're being a bit timid around me.

  7. Well, there you have it. (Re: budgie owners). Did you see the episode the Sopranos when the bird was trying to get in the basement window while a gangster was being "made"? Be blamed it for his eventual ruin. I'm glad to see (in your newer post) that you are doing better.

  8. That is "he" blamed the bird.

  9. And since that last comment left you with 13 comments on this post I'm adding one more to eliminate any danger.
