    Tried to post this pic earlier but tinypic wasn't playing ball

    The bungalow we are renting while the work is being done on our house is literally surrounded by cats. There's this ginger one who's a right bully boy and starts on Stanley Boy all the time and really winds all the cats up. DH and I have just finished tea and he's appeared at the patio doors again, this time with a bleeding ear looking for Stan. You can see Stan asleep in the washing basket he uses as his viewing point

    DH thinks the bully boy has issues

    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

    It's a viscous circle that doesn't have any magic results :

    He mixed a load of paint together to paint his van and it turned out an 'orrible dog sh*te colour. He later bought a brand new car that was a similar colour described as "safari yellow" Blaster (google him)surmised it might be something to do with the price.
