There’s a new addition to the household – hatched just last night (Friday). So far it’s just a wriggling ball of bare skin and yellow fluff, fiercely guarded by parents Bolly and Doz. Tentatively called “Peeps”.
(Dorian Grey is Very Fierce.)
Miss Constance J. Woodle the Toy poodle (who is very fluffy in her luxuriant winter coat!) alerted us last night – her hearing is of course much better than ours. She also has a sore eyelid – we’ll be off to the vet on Monday to see what that’s about. Poodles are quite prone to ingrown hairs in their eyelids; I’m hoping this is something cheap and quick to fix rather than something which requires $$$surgical intervention.
We have had some rain in the last 24 hours, and Mr Beloved also heard a different, not so happy sound from the front room – yep, a BLOODY LEAK in our brand new roof! NOT HAPPY. Will be calling the roofers on Monday to see if we can get them out here to sort it out. At goodness only knows what expense… and I expect somehow we’ll have to move things from the front room (to WHERE?!?!) so it can be fixed.
