    Lovely vet 👍 I remember clipping our dogs claws but never remember doing our cat. I can imagine you in a coat and gloves trying to do the deed.
    You managed a lot yesterday 👍 hopefully today will go quickly and you can enjoy your day tomorrow.
    It's because they don't go outside much to wear them down. I've only had to to do it since they've got old,when they were young they were out all the time so wore them down, now they spent most of their time asleep so don't wear them down at all

    Had my flu jab at work on Thursday and have been really ill today. I didn't feel great yesterday but still managed to do my shopping. I was feeling a bit odd when I went to bed but woke up this morning feeling like I had been run over by a truck,I had to take the day off work which is very unfortunate and I've spent the day in bed. I got up at 6pm and now feel almost back to normal, I've never had such a bad reaction to a flu jab before,I hope I'm ok when I have my covid booster because I don't want to take anymore time off work. 
    I obviously haven't got anything done today apart from sleeping 😟

    I wonder if the current flu jab is for a very different strain or something? Sorry to hear you've felt so bad from it. I suppose one day is better than however long flu might take but you could really have done without it.

    Hope you can sleep tonight, are you working tomorrow?

    @milann felt rough after her flu jab too. I’m dreading having mine on Saturday now. 

    I hope you feel better today.

    Sorry to hear about bad flu jab reaction @Onebrokelady. We are booked in for our jabs tomorrow so will be interested to see how that goes. I've never had any reaction to flu jabs before, other than a sore arm..... & Mr F doesn't even get that. I suppose they do vary a little though, depending on the strain.

    Morning OBL
    Hope you are feeling ok today.  I've just changed my flu jab appointment based on this discussion as i'd booked it before 3 days leave and i don't want to have a bad reaction/feel poorly when i'm on leave!  I felt fine last time i had one, i've only had one flu jab.

    The flu jab changes slightly each year according to which strain of flu they think is going to be prevalent. I slept really well last night and feel a bit better today. I'm going back to work tomorrow because I'm covering clinics and there's a lady working with me who doesn't work down there,she can't go there on her own and there's no one else to go

    Feeling a bit better today but not 100% I'm annoyed because we were going to go to the beach again today but I don't feel up to it now . I asked other people at work if they felt ill and some were ok after theirs so I think it's just pot luck

    The only time I have had a reaction was to the first jab I ever had but it also included the swine flu jab, I was really ill after that one, all the others have been ok apart from a sore arm 🤷‍♀️

    I feel a bit better today but not 100%. I've asked colleagues and it seems like an even split between those who were ill and those who weren't , I was just unlucky this time I think
