Merci

Hi everyone,

A warm welcome to my brand shiny new followers!  

We missed the snow that was forecast for last night, which I can't say I am sorry about, but today is raw cold.  I am glad we are confined to short doggie walks at the moment, due to Majik having an accident!  

She was running around the garden on Thursday evening and slipped on the wet muddy grass and let out an excruciating yelp and didn't move for a few seconds.  It was dark (they were on their last amble round the block before bedtime) so it was impossible to know what happened, but in the cold light of day we could see where she had slipped.  So, I ended up with a dog walking on three legs ~ she wouldn't weight bear at all when it first happened, but I noticed that after walking for a short while she would put her paw down and albeit with a limp walk on all four legs.  A trip to the vets resulted in her being prescribed some anti-inflammatory medicine with a painkiller in it, as the vet seemed to think it was a soft tissue injury in her shoulder.  I gave her the first dose on Friday afternoon when we got home and on Saturday morning she was vastly improved and has continued to improve ever since.

The other good news is that we completed on the sale of MIL's flat on Friday ~ what a weight off my shoulders that is.  We popped a cork on a nicely chilled bottle of bubbly to celebrate.

Anyhoo ~ enough of my ramblings and on to my share for today.

A Thank You card, I adore this Penny Black stamp and have used it time and time again, usually for Thank You cards as it seems so perfect for that sentiment.
