misty14 profile image

Hello everyone

Just thought id share with you , that this weekend our lovely baby hedgehog, Miss Tiggy came for tea looking twice the size!. She's been missing a month so we were delighted how shes grown ready for winter hibernation.

Hopefully to celebrate , you will love this pic of baby hogs as i do taken at a Wildlife Hospital called 'Tiggywinkles' . What else!?. Aren't they cute?.

Keep well and safe everyone.


P.s. Just a few more days now till Sat and my tel podiatry appt. So looking forward to it and will do an update next week. Thank you all for your lovely support. X

What a lovely picture of the hug of hoglets Misty! 😍 It did make me smile. They are so cute. Great news about Miss Tiggy too.👍🏻👍🏻 She’s obviously been eating well this last month. I’ll be thinking of you on Saturday and hoping you get the promise of the help and the injection you need from your podiatry appt. 🙏🏻🤞 Hope you are coping until then🤞. Love and hugs.🤗😘xx

Thank you spotty for your lovely wishes for sat. Just can't wait for the appt. Glad you liked my compromise post and pics. We were thrilled to see her so grown. We saw both our neighbour's last week who said they'd lost the babies they tried to save so we were specially glad to see her!.

Hope you had a good weekend and have managed to get back into the garden.

I've started the week with more computer probs and Tesco being hacked might affect our delivery!. Had a lovely afternoon yesterday as Strictly was so good, felt so relaxed and it all goes thanks to tech!. It's only great when it works!.

A good week to you lovely and keep safe. Xx

Oh Misty you have been left to suffer for so long it is really unacceptable so I hope they see you quickly after your telephone consultation. I do love hedgehogs and have rescued a few. A Facebook friend of mine has become a hedgehog foster carer feeding them up to be released safely. Strictly was amazing Rose looked so beautiful, AJ’s Argentine Tango was breathtaking and John and JoJo were spectacular. I am gutted that Ugo and Oti have gone out but it was fair the Rhumba is so difficult. I had another fall on Friday. Lost my balance and fell backwards into the bath and hit my head on the door. Fortunately both Neil and my carer/ friend Rosemary were there like a shot rolled me onto the lifting cushion and up I got. I have bruising under my armpit, upper ribs and a lump on my head so I got off lighter than last time. I am just very sore, stiff and fed up with my legs. Please let me know how you get on lovely. Take care xxx

I hope cecily that, that is your last fall!. How frightening and awful. Hope your soreness goes soon lovely. Thank goodness hubby and carer were there!.

I'm so pleased hearing about your FB friend fostering and caring for hedgehogs. It must be very rewarding!.

I won't be satisfied unless podiatrist will see me quickly after agreeing a plan of action!. He's on test as I'm so fed up with foot now and no action thus far!.

TAKE CARE and keep safe. Enjoy Strictly. Xx🐢❤️🐢👌🏻🐢❤️🐢👌🏻❤️🐢❤️

I do hope so. I have booked to have my hair cut for the first time in 21/2 years so I am a bit anxious about my damned legs not playing ball.They just give out and down I go. My Phlebotanist actually asked are you safe at home? 😱 I said no but it is not because of my husband. I could see her looking at my arms because I look as if I have grip marks when in actual fact they are from cuddling the dogs. Xxx

That is so special cecily to have a haircut in 2 and a half years!!. It will be such a boost for you. You must have very long hair like Rapunzel!. Do hope you will be able to manage.

I have been lucky as our hairdresser comes to our house so being careful shes been able to come!.

TAKE CARE and keep safe. Xx🦔❤🦔❤🤞🦔❤🦔🤞🦔❤🦔🤞🦔❤

Thank you, not quite Rapunzle but when wet it is down to my waist, the longest it has ever been. It is thick and frizzy and takes hours and hours to dry. It will be my first trip from Wales to Bristol to a curly cut specialist. I have booked the works dry cut, treatment, root tint and balayage so I will be there all day lol. Fortunately they have kindly agreed to let me have Rosemary with me and poor Neil is driving us then waiting six hours to pick us up. It will be a marathon for sure xxx

Wow!. Cecily what a trip but you will feel fantastic hopefully afterwards!. When do you go?. Is it pottery tomorrow?. Xx

Yes pottery tomorrow to paint my wonky cake stand. I go to the salon on 18 th November so time for the bruises to heal xxx

I bet you can’t wait for your appt Misty. You’ve waited too long already.I know you had special hedgehog food for Miss Tiggy so I’m sure that helped her to plump up and grow ready for hibernation. 👍🏻👍🏻 So sad about your neighbours’ babies though.

We had a relaxing weekend thanks Misty because the weather was so awful, but we enjoyed catching up with a few programmes we’d recorded and doing our arts and crafts. Not enough hours in the day! 🤣 I hope you had a good weekend yourself. 🙏🏻 Thank you for your lovely message. I’ll be in touch again very soon. You keep safe too lovey Misty. 🤗😘🙏🏻xxx

Fabulous image . Hedgehogs are so cute . I love them. Good luck for Saturday lovely xxx

Thank you so much cecily for your good wishes for sat. Just can't wait. I knew you'd love the pic, they are so cute. Wasn't Strictly good again. Standard is so HIGH!. Shame it was Oti and Ugo but he so struggled with his back!. Tough!.

Hope your knee exercises are going well and you have a good week. Xx

Aww what a cute pic, how amazing that they’ve rescued 400 hedgehogs! Lovely that you’ve had a visit from Miss Tiggy, sounds like she’s doing well.Big hugs lovely 🥰 🦔 🦔🦔🦔💕xx

Thank you Diane for your lovely message. So pleased you liked the pic. They are so cute aren't they. We were specially pleased that miss Tiggy came and had grown because both our neighbour's had rescued babies that were smaller and they didn't make it!.

Thank you for your lovely email. I will reply soon. I've started today with more computer probs and tesco's been hacked which might affect our delivery this week. Did you know?. There's always something to tire us out!.

After many calls between GP surgery and Rheumy dept I did finally get a covid vaccine 3rd jab appt for 9/11. Big relief.

Also got Rheumy apt for 5/11 with the registrar!. That's a big relief too!.

Strictly was lovely standard so high!. Sorry about Oti and Ugo going but he'd never cope with his back.

I hope you have a better week and I'll be in touch. Keep safe lovely. Xx

That is good Helen, well done for persisting, so pleased you’ve got these appointments now and quite soon too👍. Yes it was a shame Oti went but I think it would’ve happened soon if Ugo is struggling with his back. Super happy to see Rose still in though, she’s a lovely dancing and is funny too, Halloween should be good next week, looking forward to that .

No rush to reply lovely, have a good week too,🤞

Keep safe too


So cute! I will keep you in my thoughts and wishing all good things on Saturday. Also, glad Miss Tiggy is doing well.

Healing and hopeful hugs.

Oh what a super cute picture of the baby hogs and your so lucky to have miss tiggywinkles visit you - I so wish I could see a hedgehog as haven’t seen one for about 25 years - a friend has bought Ian an trail camera to fix to a tree at nighttime so we can see exactly what comes into our garden at night - will be thinking of you on Saturday Misty - lots of love 💕

Thank you svfarmer for your lovely message and good wishes for sat. You are so very kind and supportive and have been so for a long time.

How exciting to have a trail cam camera hooked up to see what comes to your garden. You never know you may see a hedgehog. Do keep me posted what you see!.

My neighbour said he had a friend who would do same in his garden but covid struck and it didn't happen!.

Do you watch Autumnwatch?. It's coming on this week. It's lovely seeing the wildlife but the presenters can be a bit irritating!.

Hope Bea and Mira are well and take care yourself. Xx💕👌🏻💕👌🏻

Bea&Mira as always are keeping me smiling ❤️ it’s Monthly Mira next week so watch this space - as always Mira has been up to mischief 😆💕

Hi misty, great to see your regular visitor has returned 🦔🦔😀😀Keeping my fingers crossed for your call on Saturday, hopefully it will mean you’ll have a F2F .

The rheumy nurse is meant to be calling tomorrow, she was to talk to the rheumy about me getting a steroid shot or steroid tablets , ihad the oncology nurse on as well , review app with consultant 23rd Nov . Id actually made a list of questions this time and took notes 🙄🙄

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and enjoy the Autumnal weather and beautiful colours 🤗😘🦔💕💕🙏🏼🙏🏼

Thanks weathervane for your lovely message. Good luck tomorrow for your apt with Rheumy nurse. 👌🏻for steroid help. They are so helpful the nurses. It's good you are having your cancer check soon too.

I saw your post re the 3rd vaccine and didn't have the energy to reply as I've had the runaround like you to get info on it. Rheumy dept said we're only doing Subcut MTX patients, it was GP responsibility and GP said no contract to do it!.

Luckily suddenly I had an appt for it on 9/11 and also been able to get a Rheumy f2f appt on 5/11 so hopefully now real progress will be made. I want quick action for my foot now and will go back to surgeon if podiatry won't give it me!.

Wasn't Strictly lovely?. Very sorry Oti and Ugo went.

Take care and keep safe. Xx❤️👌🏻❤️

Ooooh lucky November!!!! Hope apps all go well and you wont have to tackle the surgeon 🤣🤣🙏🏼🙏🏼

Hi Misty, We haven't seen Harry🦔 for a little while now, but I'm hoping he chooses his hibernation bed wisely🤞 & how lovely that little miss Tiggy is still calling on you.. you must be thrilled.

I do hope your tele appointment gives you the results you need.. it seems forever you've been waiting, just not acceptable!

& thank you for your kind wishes

Take care Misty

Thank you daisy for your lovely wishes. You've been so supportive!. Im sorry Harry stopped calling but as you say hopefully he's found a lovely hibernation spot to sleep in. 🤞

We were thrilled to see 'Miss Tiggy ' , double the size as we'd been concerned at her not being a good enough weight to survive the winter but hopefully she will now. 🤞 she's disappeared again now.

I hope i will get offer of foot help quickly now as its been too long and no progress!. Its bothering me more now so hopefully i will. Look out for an update at the weekend. Keep safe and as well as possible. Id love to be a hedgehog and wake up in Spring!. Xx🦔❤🦔🤞❤🦔❤🤞🦔❤🦔🤞
