that'll teach me...



No, this isn't me having done a fabulous clean out and sort out of the 'problem' beside my bed! This is the result of a stupid mishap with a full beaker of tea on the bedside table... sigh... tipped it over, didn't I? All over my bagful/heap of books, magazines and paper... and now 75% of said is in the airing cupboard, drying off. A few items escaped... but I've had to chuck a whole wodge of stuff too. Maybe it's a good thing out of a bad thing... and I've certainly learnt the hard way not to use unstable 'caffe latte' type mugs, and not to pile pillows up behind me, because they have a disturbing habit of tipping sideways towards full cups of tea!

On the general front, I've been feeling really cruddy again these last few days, hence the slim blog presence. Also had to do a major cleanup in the house, as himself had someone coming round to see him on a semi work type visit, so the place had to be tidy. I've also been thinking about edits on Buddies, suggested by my critique partner, as well as bits for my smalltown idea. But mainly, I've been fighting off the lurgi again, especially in the form of jammed up sinuses, aching limbs, and a constantly hovering headache/migraine.

In better news, Kuffer was at the vet last night, and he's responded well to his thyroid meds. He's actually put on a bit of weight! He's to be on the pills for another month, and then the vet will decide whether he needs and op, or whether his overactive thyroid can be managed with pills alone.

Been there, done that! The amount of things I've ruined by having drinks at the side of the bed...Anyway, glad to hear Kuffer is doing well. My old girl, Tamsin, is getting all lumpy with arthritis and coming down the stairs slowly, rather than her normal stampede. Suppose it'll happen to us all one day.

Oh Nicolette, I'm so glad it's not just me that does this! The worst of it is that I did the self same thing a few weeks ago, and still didn't learn the lesson re. the juxtaposition of brimming tea mugs, pillows and paper...

Kuffer has a touch of arthritis too. It's not severe, but he can't jump and climb up onto things in quite the way he used to.

I am now watching my own cup of tea warily. o.0

I recognise that story, too. It's why my Vincent bedside pix are all laminated.

Good news about Kuffer.
