    Glad the platelet count is holding stable, Suzeanna. That poor soldier. I hope there will be enough advances in pain management in his lifetime for him to get some improvement. Snow was forecast for here but just got drizzle. Jazz, you are wise not to go out in snow and ice. I avoid it if possible. Wispa used to love snow but went off it about 3 years ago. I rehomed the box of chocolates to my emergency dogsitter, who feeds Wispa and lets her out if I have to be away for the day.

    Great work with the foster, Jazz. Bitterly cold here. Ice over half inch thick on bird drinkers. I am still sleeping very badly. I fall asleep fast enough, can barely stay awake in evenings, then wake at 4 or even 3 feeling very depressed and can't get back to sleep until time to get up. Haven't been right since that awful scene I had before Christmas in shopping centre with now ex friend. I have moments of feeling OK then it comes back and hits me.

    Cannot really do that in case the donors get to find out that they were raffled. I have had one or two ideas though and am certain I can find them a suitable home.

    I went to the reserve visitor centre for lunch today and found a surprise waiting. The owners of the lovely cat I found deceased last Thursday and took home to his people had been in and left a box of posh chocolates and a card with a nice message of thanks. They must have looked at my profile and seen where I work. Now I have to work out what to do with the chocolates as I can't eat the stuff. Some even have liqueur in which is even worse for me. Someone is going to get lucky.

    Social media is full of judgemental people who are always ready to criticise without knowing the facts. The way some adults behave online is a poor example for young people, and I am not surprised by the distress caused to children and teenagers by cyber bullying.

    Snow, you did the right thing to acknowledge so quickly that you are not the right home for him, and I hope that in the long term you will believe us and stop thinking you have let everyone down.

    Not quite finished as should have the timing belt replaced at some point.

    That quote was just for one part ... the whole bill is 350 and I paid nearly the same last week. Still cheaper than getting another car and this one has now had so much replaced that it should be good for a few more years yet.

    Car all done and through MOT with no advisories. Whew! They quoted me £160 so should be around that. Off to catch a bus now. Eve, you are not being strange at all. Similar situation with my mum and aunt. 3 weeks between departures.

    Kangoo failed MOT on emissions and a broken spring and a twisted brake cable. They hope to have it sorted by tomorrow so left it with them.

    No hehe it did not. I folded the back seat down which gives a huge space, put a big tarp and some straw over that. I only did it to take those who were not in milk up to their summer grazing, then brought them down in winter.

    I had a Volvo estate but gave it up when I stopped keeping goats. You could get a lot of hay bales into it. Or 6 goats. 🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐

    Sometimes you get a bargain which really is that. I got a brilliant old car via the Refuge about 12 years ago. Did many miles in it and only had to scrap it when the radiator turned into a colander, and none were available anywhere in the country apart from brand new from maker which cost 3x what I paid for the car. Even then I got a bit of cash for the car as it had become a sought after classic and an enthusiast bought it for spares. MOT for the Kangoo on Monday. Haven't seen any black smoke since a couple of days after all the filters were replaced.
