dear readers, at last i have some good news. in fact i have several bits of good news!
firstly, some people are going to buy our house. they have 3 dogs and are thrilled to bits with the place. they are due to get married a week after moving in so the place will be buzzing with activity. the dogs will be able to make sure that the garden gets regular sprinklings so i am happy. the peeps are happy because it means they can finally make a fresh start after what has been a rather unfortunate year. my boy is happy because herself has managed to arrange that he will have the same taxi driver to take him to school. the peeps will drive him part of the way and rendevouz outside a cafe on the dual carriageway.
secondly, i got to see young rokit today. the little chap was touchingly pleased to see me - it warms the cockles of my old heart. he was not allowed to give me a hug on the off-chance that he might catch his thumb in my staples and cause yet more trauma, but we had a bit of a chat. herself took us for a drive and picked up a bream to have for tea. it is valentines day so the peeps are going to have a special meal. this morning herself made himself a card with a picture of ferrets on it. not the most romantic thing in the world but its the thought that counts. himself more appropriately presented herself with a huge bunch of flowers which are proudly displayed on the table.
and finally, my efforts at do-it-yourself plastic surgery seem to have worked! we went to see the vet today and my shoulder has healed up so well that nearly all of my stitches and staples have been taken out! i got the collywobbles a bit at the sight of the vet and my legs went like jelly. herself distracted me from my anxiety by pulling an object out of her bag and exclaiming "blimey! i've still got this fish in my bag!" its probably just as well the bag does have the waterproof pocket in the middle...
