Further to previous blog, friendly plumber been and gone and the water has stopped dripping through the ceiling. Cat is puzzled as to why bed is wet and is sulking in the conservatory. Puppy has found the cat's toy mouse and is busy dismembering it and throwing himself on and off the sofa. Keep trying to keep him off it (sofa I mean) as new covers coming in about 5/6 weeks courtesy of those friendly people (+ 30% discount and a cream tea) at Plumbs. Just had the hall and downstairs loo tiled. With 2 dogs, a husband and a cat, carpets were no longer an option. Our old cat Mungo who went to the hunting grounds in the sky some 2 years ago (his kidneys failed at 14), had started to scratch up the carpet round the sitting room door causing it to fray and generally look pretty yuck. Puppy has finished it off (as well as the telephone directory in bits all over the floor today), so decided to get tiles. They do look good and if we are to believe the global warmers will be very useful when we have our mediterranean climate. Just had the MTX injection for this week - think the pain in my shoulders is tension. Headache has gone now so definitely tension. But thumb joints still very painful. Dog is creating mayhem next door by the sound of it and has just come tearing through into the kitchen with mouse. Cat (MinnieMae a Burmese) is expressing her indignation at being shut in the conservatory so must go and let her out.
Ruby wedding anniversary on Sunday (40 years - you get time off for good behaviour if you commit a murder). Friends coming to lunch to help us
celebrate so hope I will be ok. 3 friends making desserts for me and my friend's butcher makes the most gorgeous quiches so 3 on order from him. Ho Hum, can it ever get better? Life and RA I mean. See my Rheumy in 2 months time for a checkup and the Hospital in September. Going to the pub tonight to mull over our very successful "do" on Saturday at our local park. Doing the same again next year for the Jubilee. However, did suffer Saturday evening and all day Sunday as overdid it as usual. LavendarLady
