Ok, so I haven’t posted for over a week.. again. Never mind. Just going to write anything interesting that I can remember.
Monday the 3rd: * ???
Tuesday the 4th: Watched latest Gotham episode. Penguin is so cool! Twisted and cruel, but an awesome villain.
Wednesday the 5th: Animal clinic. There was a male albino ferret in for neutering. Very aggressive, but so cute :). When the aneasthetic was wearing off, the ferret was trying to arrange his long body into the most comfortable position, and watching his head move first, and then watching the rest of his body follow was just the cutest thing. A privately owned female kitten was there to be spayed and to have her eye checked. The left eye was partly closed, and I thought that maybe she had conjuntivitus, but it turned out that her eyeball had burst and her lower eyelid was stuck to it 😦 so it had to be removed. I felt really bad for the wee kitty, and was so grateful that my own furry baby was whole and healthy. The vet said it was probably the cat flu virus that caused the eye to burst. I couldn’t help but wonder about the reaction of the owner. I would be extremely upset if I sent in my kitten to be neutered and have his eye checked, and they gave him back to me missing an eye, even if it was absolutely necessary. Again, I’m so happy that my kitten is healthy.
Thursday the 6th: Got a paniked call from my love while I was at work. Some family drama (his side) that could see us kicked out of the flat we live in (which is owned by his grandfather), and create a rift between my partner and his father. Partner was very upset. I did my best to reassure him that everything would be alright and advised him on what he could do. Ceramic artist from Scotland arrives at the workshop, he’ll be here for two weeks, making molds.
Friday the 7th: Partner very worried about family problems, which still haven’t come to a head, despite several phone calls between him and various members of his family. We look at houses for sale. Find some interesting ones. No way we can afford them at the moment though. Need to find a full-time job first.
Saturday the 8th: Partner at work, me at my grandfathers’. Have a very frustrating morning editing pesky health book and snap constantly at my grandfather, with him snapping back. No nastiness though, so that was ok. Get home early afternoon and get a call from my love, who says he has been informed that his grandfather is very likely coming to see us. Panic stations! House is a complete mess and we’d be kicked out immediately if his grandad knew what shape the flat was in. So I hurriedly start tidying up. As I’m doing the washing up, a key turns in the lock.. but it’s just my love, back from work. His grandfather has a key, and for a moment I thought it might be him. Partner joins in the cleaning-a-thon. Soon we have the place reasonable clean, with extra stuff dumped in the spare room. We spend the whole afternoon and evening at home, just to see if he comes. He doesn’t.. still, the house is nice and tidy now.
Sunday the 9th: We go out for a walk by the sea in the sun. We have a couple of drinks at a bar/cafe and talk about the possibility of getting a house loan, and what we’d do with our imaginary 3 bedroomed place (turn master bedroom in a library and gaming room). Buy deli counter foods and two passion fruits. We have fun together :).
Monday the 10th: Family drama sorted out by my partner’s sister. All is good for the time being.
Tuesday the 11th: Exactly one month before our holiday! Really looking forward to it!! It’s the head painter’s birthday (80th) at work, so we buy him a big tin of Quality Street and stick couled candles onto it. He’s really happy and it’s great to see. We sing him ‘happy birthday’, even though he’s deaf, and he just loves all the attention. At home, I finish my scarf! It awesome. Very colourful and rather long. Must post a picture of it. So proud. Now have to knit one each for my mother, father and brother, as Christmas presents :). *
