    Evening Elite I'm another one waiting for the APG system to recognise my 10 items as went for Right Guard deo today

    Also been to docs about the excrutiating pain in my knee when standing/walking. To be referred back to specialist I would have to be referred back to Physio but as I had already done all of this last year, he is referring me instead to the weight clinic at hospital as I need to get down to under 35 BMI to have knee op and WHEN I get there, they can refer me for op. So back on proper diet again I do know that I can do it, but some days the pain or depression just gets to me too much and I don't look after myself properly and diet/healthy eating goes out of the window

    Oh poor pup, Jeremiah, must be awful to go through all of that

    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.

    Anyone fancy a fun guessy game?

    What colour with Kate be wearing for her sisters wedding tomorrow?

    I'm going for silver/grey

    Yes I know we aren't really bothered. But I have a fab prize for the winner
