    I think she is coming to her senses and rehome some, but some are paralized, so she will keep them. the rescues wont have them back, so they will be put to sleep otherwise
  4. Today
  5. Curry's have a good saving on that, Suzeanna. Good that your mum has reported the guy next door. At least it will be logged now. Mind you a street up here has had terrible trouble with anti social behaviour and all the police said was 'we are aware of it'. Strangely, since it was reported in the paper they are now stepping up the action. I hope you get some relief this afternoon Owl. We do not realise how much we use our backs until it hurts. Suzeanna, take care of yourself. We oldies don't mend as quick as we used to. We have another day of summer. It has clouded over but is still pleasantly warm. I have been able to catch up on some gardening that has been left too long due to unseasonal weather. Jazz, I hope your friend finds somewhere to live. It will not be easy with so many dogs.
  6. We recently bought the Shark liftaway.. not the cordless one. It's great, we got ours from Currys. SHARK DuoClean Lift-Away True Pet NV700UKT Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner - Grey & Rose Gold Product code: 245735 It's got a couple of accessories and one is specifically meant to deal with pet hair, and it does. Yantan and Owl both have Sharks but I don't know which incarnation.

    Aw, poor Merlin. To those of you who have a Shark hoover - which one do you have please? I'm thinking of getting one but wasn't sure which was best.

    lol @ Jazz. I'm sure Katie didn't mind one bit. What a caring friend you are. You're doing the right thing having a day off from walking Candy Suzeanna. Give yourself a chance to heal. Don't envy you with your neighbours kids either. I'm lucky living in a quiet street. Hope the visit to the chiropracter helps Owl. Bit cloudy here today, but still quite warm. Dogs are out with the dogwalkers and Richard's gone across the water for a hospital appointment and I should be getting on and doing stuff.....

    im trying to help my friend with her dogs, sort transport, and help another friend who has been made homeless. I still must concentrate. went to dunk my biscuit in my coffee, but gave it to katie instead. she doesn't mind
  11. I hope the chiropractor can sort you out quickly Owl. I think I'll give walking Candy a miss, my whole hand aches today, as does my shoulder which obviously was wrenched too. My knee is a bit swollen but not too badly. She won't suffer greatly, we have a good sized garden and when Philip comes home he takes her to the park, then over the fields in the evening. Peace in the neighbourhood will disappear after Friday, the local schools break up! Couple over the road with six kids always have them playing out the front, despite having a large back garden and they aren't quiet kids, and now the older ones have friends who turn up too. They are found of riding their bikes down the middle of the road, pulling wheelies...not clever when you're on a bus route! I've been trying discreetly to find out if they still have the german shepherd, certainly haven't seen or heard it since the day he gave it a good hiding. I don't want to be too obvious about it, as if they do still have it I intend to get in touch with the RSPCA and I don't want things rebounding on me.

    Glad your mum got in touch with the police Griff, that could easily escalate out of control, and that you got the dictaphone. Also pleased you got a laugh at the funeral. Shame your GP is retiring next year Blackmagic. He sounds perfect for Jim. Fingers crossed Jim will have improved so much it won't be an issue. My step daughter in law (is that a thing?) is writing a novel and asked me to proof read it for her. I've done it before for her for short stories she's written which were ok but not my cup of tea. Luckily she just wanted me to check for grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes and not give a critique as I thought it was truly awful. She's a lovely girl and determined to be an author so I'll always encourage her to achieve her dream but I don't think this book is going to get her there.
  18. I know before I had my second breast surgery, when they intended to remove all the lymph nodes from under my arm, one surgeon used drains afterwards and one didn't. I was meant to be having the latter, but she was ill leading up to the surgery and I was dreading having Ciaran Hollywood instead. The relief when I heard the click of Julia Massey's heels coming down the ward was immense, I'd heard a lot of horror stories about the pain with drains, Jim has my sympathy..not that it will help him any. Bet he can't wait to get it out.

    I hope Jim continues to do well Thanks all, I convinced my mum after nagging to email the police for advice, I have bought a dictaphone Funeral went well, I as laughing as someone left their phone on and it rang right at the point of the curtains closing, Jim would have found that funny
  22. No, our GP is very friendly and easy going. He is not popular with a lot of people as he is not interested if you are not really ill but he is excellent if you are ill. We get on well with him.particularly JIm as our GP was a colorectal surgeon before he became a GP so was able to fill in a lot of the gaps in JIm's condition and treatment since he knows about it all. You also need to understand his dry sense of humour. He spends 10 minutes discussing shooting with JIm then 5 minutes on his consultation!. Unfortunately, he retires next year. The remaining partner is also very good but is more business like. He just wanted to make sure he had asked for the all the required results so we just had to hand in the form. Our surgery is 16 miles away but give excellent service which is not available else where nowadays. We can often get a same day appointment. JIm forgot it once before with the nurse but I was at home so she phoned and asked me to read off the slip what was requested. Jim is in a lot of pain from the chest drain so is on Morphine. During the day he says it is no too bad , If he is doing something he can forget about it but he was waking up during the night with severe pain in his chest and not able to get any more sleep. So he now has one slow release tablet during the day and a triple one at night. This combination seems to be working without making him too sleepy during the day. But he usually falls asleep at some time. Hence he is not driving. There is no more drainage from his chest and he is counting the days until it is removed which should be the middle of August.
  23. I'd forgotten GG was a paedophile, Griff that's not just slander it could be dangerous. If other people hear them say that..people who don't know your dad and know that it's rubbish..things could escalate. There have been a few cases in the news of people wrongly accused of that sort of thing who have been attacked by a mob and badly hurt. There are always people around ready to believe the worst of someone with little or no proof. I'd point this out to your parents as a last ditch attempt to make them report it. Hope you didn't find the funeral too upsetting Griff. x

    Griff calling your dad after a well known paedophile is slander and what those 2 are doing amounts to harassment. Try and get your parents to at least let the solicitor know about this. The best thing you can do is record their antics as you are planning to do. Good luck Jazz. Good heavens Suzeanna, that's not the sort of day anyone wants! black magic did Jim get an ear bashing over the slip or did you let him off seeing as he's poorly? Quite a drive for you all the same. How's he doing? I am taking a break from the genealogy as I am confuddling myself with names that are the same as previous generations. Just need to clear my head for a while.
  26. Hope the ouchies go away soon. After several wet, murky days we have summer today! 22degrees at the moment. JIm went to get blood taken this morning. He canlt drive due to taking morphine so I am doing all the driving at present. He forgot the slip so we had to come home for it and go back- 1 hour round trip each time. Then did some gardening for an hour but it got too hot so I have had lunch and am relaxing inside where it is cooler.

    they have neck pllows in the pound shop
  28. Griff, I'm sorry but if your parents are too stubborn (or too afraid of the consequences) to report them, then there's nothing you can do. Wash your hands of it, it's their problem not yours. Speaking of hands, how's your wrist? My day hasn't gone quite as planned. Took Candy for a walk, with several stops to get my leg back into working order then when we got home I went towards the back door to put a poo bag in the bin and instead of coming with me the little bat yanked towards the front door. She's surprisingly strong for her size and caught me totally off guard, my dodge left kneecap promptly dislocated and I was sooo close to falling over and headbutting the wall, plus I've got a nice bruise at the base of my thumb where the lead tightened round it! I confess I yelled at her and I'm ashamed to say I slapped her, not that it seemed to bother her. Thankfully my kneecap went out and back in again, it didn't get stuck out which would have been a nightmare. Glad things are looking up for you Owl, those neck pillows are a good idea. Right..off for a lie down. Nothing can happen to me in bed, can it? Oops...just remembered, Owl!
