Numb

We are both somewhat 'poleaxed' today.  Despite suspecting there was something wrong, actually being told that is the case is an entirely different ballgame.  Until we know more we cannot make any plans, which is difficult for us but does not affect Daisy at all.  As far as Her Ladyship is concerned, today is just a normal day with all the food, walks, cuddles and warm comfy beds in front of the woodburner she can handle.



The comments from yesterday's posts, and the private notes I have received, are all so very much appreciated.  The kind words from thoughtful souls who took a moment out of their day to get in touch mean more to me than they can possibly imagine.  Thank you.

Popped into town this morning and dropped into a couple of charity shops, something I often do if I am walking past.  Today I definitely succumbed to 'completely unnecessary comfort spending'.  Well, at £10 for the lot, how could I not?



So much for minimalism, decluttering and only acquiring items I need and am going to use . . .

  1. Daisy looks quite content right now and I hope you can take some comfort in that.
    The china is gorgeous, what a lucky find. And of course you need it, as you are going to use it. πŸ˜† X

    1. Thanks Jules. I take huge comfort in the fact that whilst I reckon she has some discomfort, it is not massively impacting her life right now and she has no idea what is going on.

      And yes, of course I needed that china :-) Amazing the set is whole except for one saucer, the china on the cups is so thin you can almost see through it!

    1. Thank you dear girl, make sure those babies of yours are tucked up well - who gets the quilt tonight?

    2. Actually I thought of what could be a good solution to the quilt sharing - instead of them taking it in turns it's going in the back of the van on days out so they can both snuggle on it or under it at the same time :-)

  3. Lots of huggles from down under & got the email reply. Thanks. Is that a Shelley teaset? If it is you certainly got a bargain. Have a nice weekend & take care.

    1. Cheers Susan, glad you got email :-) I think the tea set is fake Royal Albert, it's in the style of pre-1905 china from them, but the backstamp doesn't seem quite right, and the supposed pattern doesn't come up on any Royal Albert collector sites. Counterfeiting is nothing new :-) I'll do some more research when I am in the mood.

  4. Just catching up, so sorry to hear about your lovely Daisy.
    Choosing the right time is always a problem with poorly animals, just no way of knowing how they are feeling.

  5. I'll be thinking of you today Jayne. It's good that Daisy is unaware of her problem, let's hope it's something that can be sorted out for her. Sending love and more hugs for you and a gentle hug for your beautiful fur baby xx

    What a lovely tea set and great find.

    1. Thanks Eileen. I think Daisy knows she is not right, but thankfully (to the best of our knowledge) dogs have no perception of Cancer, or Secondaries, or whether it is even Tuesday or Christmas! It is my job to be kept awake half the night thinking of those things 😞

  6. Good luck for Daisy's scan today. Your china is lovely, always amuses me how big the sugar bowls were in those days. When I was on holiday last year I saw in a charity shop a complete service of gorgeous china, 12 of everything (including tea pot, coffee pot and covered veg dishes). It was a real quality make and I thought how sad that it was unwanted. I was tempted, but have been trying to get rid of stuff lately as when I go it's one less job for the children.

  7. A rotten time for you all. I do so feel for you. When my little cat suddenly went blind and the vet was telling me she would adapt but I knew she wasn’t, one evening she curled up on my lap, having never been a lap cat and I knew she was telling me it was time to let her go. I still miss her but she really made the decision for me. You will know what to do when/ if you need to do it. Whispering a prayer for you both x

    1. Thank you dear girl. There is always comfort in knowing you are making the right decision for a beloved companion, even if it hurts like bloody hell.

  8. Oh God, reading back over your last post, no wonder you splurged on £10 worth of prettiness.

    So, so sorry to read what you have been through over the last couple of weeks.

I love receiving your comments, you know I do, and always try to respond to each and every one.

Sometimes it is the only way I know I am not talking to myself . . . 😊
