    Too far for me to go just for weetabix

    Great feeling being finished work for the week. It somehow never goes according to plan. My 12.30 finish stretched to 3.30
    But can't complain as I managed a great little whoopsies shop. No photo as they got put away before I thoughtEverything was down to 20p. It was a different girl and I don't think she could be bothered to mark prices individually

    I'm still up!
    Sad news though - Phantom pregnancy and labour

    She has had two previous litters, of only two puppies each - she is a Maltese and litter sizes are generally small. But labour lasted about 3 hours both times previously. So I took her to the Vets earlier as I was getting concerned.

    Vet did a thorough ultrasound and manual examination and definitely no puppies there
    She is still showing all the signs of labour though and even has milk.
    The Vet says she may have been carrying a puppy but it died earlier in the pregnancy and has been re-absorbed

    How sad and disappointing, but she has had an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory and a good check over.

    I rather like your coral pumps Enterprise

    Difficult typing as I stripped all the dead Yucca leaves off & have cut my hands to ribbons. Wearing plasters on my finger pads as they are quite deep

    You know how you start one job that escalates in to another etc etc what started as a quick hand Dyson up the wooden stairs, involved prizing stones out of floor boards joins, hand sweeping out pipe work behind loo, shoe racks & litter tray... moving the fridge, cleaning small bird statues on porch step, onto sweeping path way, then decided to cut back my 'dead' clematis
    You know my beautiful clematis, nothing this year - all brown branches
    so I have stripped back a third so far today, off the communal railings , making many snails homeless, (safely carried to a grassy area) whilst throwing cuttings for neighbours dog,
    There are some leaves coming through now but it needs a good hair cut.
    Especially through the arch way, without having to crouch to pass under

    I've given up now & left it in a heap for tomorrow

    oh dear how sad for the poor little mite
    you must be exhausted with all that bell ringing...or lack of yesterday afternoon, !and the frivolity that followed then being up all night...
    Bed and rest for you now x

    Thanks Hillbern,
    Yes both exhausted, but only one of us managing to sleep lol.


    Afternoon luvlies, so sorry to read this JTS, awful for you and your family who will have been looking forward to puppies, even holding her hand , and must be heartbreaking for your little doggie bless her. Can you give her a couple of small teddies to nurse or is this not the done thing .
    Originally posted by hampydoodums
    Thanks Happydoodums,
    Yes she has a little pink fluffy pig that she is carrying around as her puppy. She seems much better now, but it was heartbreaking early this morning, as she was obviously convinced that she had given birth and she was searching everywhere for them
