    Oh my goodness, the poor lass.

    So relieved to hear there were no serious injuries. Wishing her a speedy recovery.

    Oh My Gosh Dutchie!, How frightening!! I'm so glad she's okay.

    FW- Violets? Well that's just fabulous! I'd love violets popping up in our lawn. But, I guess from what your saying they are considered a weed. It sounds beautiful to me.

    "It is great to have seagulls, when I hear them first thing in the morning it reminds me that it's not a dream and we do live in our little sugarlump of a house by the sea! "

    BritBunny, I'm just loving the visual on this! So happy for you that you get to live in your dream house!

    Polly, I'll PM you since this is not the thread for that issue.

    Water the grass???? Then I'd have to mow it.

    We have a well, but mow so dang much there is no way we could water what we call it "the green stuff". If we called it a lawn we'd have to take better care of it
    I saved 100% by buying nothing. Best sale of the year.

    Aaah, so it's all the in psychology, if I just call it "the grass" instead of "the lawn" it doesn't matter what colour it is. You learn something new every day!

    That is one busy week! Hope your dog is on the mend.

    Preparing for a big night out on the town this weekend. Deep joy. The closer it gets the less I want to go... but I did promise and I'm sure it can't be half as bad as I think it's going to be.

    Please let us know how it went.

    Both dogs are fine. But my cat has a scratched up face or was stung by bees?? Hopefully this run will end soon,please. I just can't afford this.

    Awwww poor thing. The vet is so expensive, our previous bunny broke her leg a few years ago, goodness me that hurt the bank balance!

    The night out is tonight. And I guarantee we'll meet some "characters". We live in a quiet seaside town but the town next to us is one of the busiest seaside resorts in the country and it has quite a reputation for being lively. Plus we're going to a cabaret show, so it could be interesting.

    Have a good weekend everyone.

    Just to let everyone know that I am still alive - JUST - LOL.

    I think it must be something in the air with everyone having a busy time.

    Firstly on Monday I had promised to take my youngest son for his driving test/theory. It was an early test and we had to leave the house at 8.15. Well I got ready and was just going to the car when I asked him if he his reservation nr. He didn't.
    He went back inside, got it, I read it and it was for Tuesday GRRRR!.
    Anyhow, I was up early and got going.

    However the tooth that had played up during my vacation started to play up and I had already called the dentist so that they knew that if I called then I could come right away.
    So I called and a couple of hours later (still Monday) I was in the chair. In between I had done some grocery shopping and some laundry (again). The dentist wasn't sure if I needed a root canal treatment or something else. She sealed the the whole thing and said that if she was right then everything would be ok and if she wasn't right and I did need a root canal treatment then about Wed. or Thurs. I would be calling them.

    Tuesday I got up and repeated Monday except that we did go to the examination center with my son. (He failed!)
    Then I got home and did a HUGE job, namely the finances (after the vacation - the cc bills had arrived BAH!!).

    During the afternoon (Tuesday) my tooth gradually got worse and worse. I called our dentist but they had already gone for the day and the dentist on duty didn't think it an emergency (not what I thought at all). They recommended that I take a strong painkiller and wait till the next morning.
    I did wait, took a painkiller, didn't sleep and got up like a zombie hovering over the telephone till the dentist opened at 8.30.
    I got to go to the dentist at 10.30.
    My jaw was shaking by the time she started but I was relieved to be rid of the pain. Yes, one root canal treatment later I actually felt great. I didn't care. They gave me a LOAD of painkillers because they said that they had done so much work in my mouth that I was bound to have a lot of pain after the novocaine had worn off and I did - but I didn't take anything.
    The presuure pain was gone so I was fine. I didn't care.

    Thursday I was all over the place and attended at dh's 85 year old aunt's birthday party. She is in a home for the elderly with dementia.

    In between all this I was in discussions with our oldest son (about him and his wife splitting up (he is still living here). He is thinking of trying it again with her (waste of time if you ask me - I think that I mentioned what the problem is. She is an alcoholic, does not recognise that she has a problem and therefore refuses to do anything about it).

    During all this, our oldest son threw our 2nd son out of his appartment (oldest is the owner of the flat) so a LOT of fireworks there. We are now helping 2nd son find something else (it is a VERY LONG and BORING story). He is staying with his girlfriend in the meantime. (You are probably thinking why doesn't eldest so live in this appartment - VERY VERY long story but for now he can't.)

    Our 3rd son had 'something' to discuss with us. (This can never be good as we know from experience).
    He is changing universities and wants to stop work full time (interfering with his studies - I had noticed this so I wasn't surprised) and therefore he can no longer live on his own, is it ok if he comes back home to live.
    Sure! Our house is starting to resemble a zoo by now anyway.

    Our daughter is recovering from her accident but we are still busy with the insurance forms (nightmare - because she doesn't remember anything so we are having to go by what witnesses saw and the police report).

    And today on top of everything our youngest son - just as he was leaving for a vacation - came to us with the remark that his girlfriend has headlice - would I check if he has them too. EEK!!!!

    I checked and YES he has them. Got stuff for him, got it done, got him out of the door for his vacation with instructions. Ran to his bed and pulled off the sheets, pillow cases and put them into the white plastic laundry bin.
    A couple of hours later I took them out because I was busy with other laundry earlier on. After removing the sheets, there were a few 'things' moving on the bottom of the laundry bin. EEEWWWWW!!!!
    His pillows, duvet and everything that is loose on his bed has been thrown AWAY!!!!
    I went to IKEA and bought new ones (not very frugal I know but I don't care). I am now airing out his room, spraying his mattress and itching all over just at the thought of it all.

    It's now almost 4 pm and in exactly 1 hour I am going t sit down and have a glass of wine.

    THANK GOD that this week is finished!
    Hope everyone's week was more relaxed than mine!

    Have a great weekend evryone - and have a great evening out BB!

    WOW! What a week. I'm sure you must have had everything thrown at you since you returned from your holiday, surely that must be the end of it!

    We have had a bit of good news today. DH ha a meeting with his boss, they are having a restructure due to the 40% cuts they have to make and his boss has suggested he manages two departments instead of one! I really doubt this will mean a pay increase but I think it should mean there won't be a pay decrease.

    And looking back now everything might just work out for the best. When he went for a job in Blackpool he went for one job and didn't get it. He was then offered the job he has now. After a couple of months the guy who had the job he originally went for decided to leave and return to his old job. So DH is now on the verge of doing his current job and the job that they didn't give him in the first place. Weird how these things turn out isn't it. But if I ever see the guy that left I'll buy him a drink, lol.

    It's not 100% certain but it looks like his job may be safe if this restructure is approved.

    Hope everyone has a brilliant weekend.

    Well, we had a big scare yesterday! DH got up in the morning, went downstairs to see the bunnies and one of them was seriously ill. When a bunny stops eating it's never a good thing! So we called the vet, the receptionist told us to get her in as soon as we could (well trained staff!) we saw the vet who is a rabbit expert and they took her in.

    It was such a long day without her, the other rabbit was freting and pining for her. BUT THEN we received a call from the vet who said she had picked up really well and although they wanted to keep her in overnight she was hopeful she would be fine - and she wanted to keep her for herself as she was so beautiful!

    So, long and horrible night without her - we picked her up this morning and she has done nothing but eat ever since. I was very nervous at how much the bill would be, with the overnight stay and everything. We paid 39.03. I couldn't believe it, I thought we'd be up around the 100 mark for a full 24 hours including all the medication and everything.

    I love my vet.

    Just to check in.
    Once again a rotten week - I suppose things can only get better - I live in hope LOL.

    I'll start with dh and myself.
    The final part of the root canal treatment got done and I am SO relieved.
    Dh is ok but we are starting to reel with the stress of everything that is being thrown at us.

    Once again I am SO VERY GRATEFUL for this forum because I can vent on here in reasonable anonimity (sp?).

    Oldest son is taking his time thinking about what he will be doing about his wife. His wife has changed the locks on their apartment and has gone to France for 2 weeks so he is like a bull in a china ship regarding his mood - he is furious.

    However, I have heard from a very reliable source that he has started seeing someone else.

    I am NOT amused. I hope that you can understand this.
    It also seems that he was seeing someone before he and his wife split up. I am SO p...... at this you cannot imagine.
    Whether she is an alcoholic or not, this is not right. I feel like we have been used.

    As I already mentioned our second son was thrown out of his appartment by oldest son (the owner). In the meantime he has been staying with his girlfriend in the house that she shares with 3 other girls while he looks for something else.
    They have given him an ultimatum, in that he has to leave within 1 week since it was never the idea that the boyfriends stayed indefinitely in the house.

    So he was here this week and it was agreed that as soon as oldest son moved out either to another appartment because his own one was sold or to something else, 2nd son would move in and occupy the room that oldest son now has. However now there has been the ultimatum from his girlfriend's flatmates.

    2nd son said (and he's right) that it is ridiculous that he has in prinicpal nowhere to stay while oldest son HAS an appartment but won't move into to it. So he asked if he could come and stay here even though oldest son was still here.

    I refused because these two would kill each other in an unguarded moment if they got the chance and their tempers flared - which happens every 2 minutes and there's no way that I'm bringing that kind of stress into the house.

    Oldest son has said that he will be out within the week IF we lend him the money to get the appartment into order for him - around$3000.
    (It seems that his wife has been plundering the joint accounts. He refuses to see a lawyer because he still wants to get back with her (TOO STUPID FOR WORDS when you consider the circumstances now!!!!!).
    I personally wouldn't have done it but dh has a very soft heart where his kids are concerned.

    3rd son is on vacation and because of a mistake in his salary, he has had to borrow money from us AND he will defintely be moving in as soon as our dd moves to London.

    4th son is also on vacation and has had his head shaved so that he doesn't have any more problems with the lice.

    Our dd is now officially in denial about moving to London for 6 months. She has decided that she doesn't want to go but she has to of course because of her college degree.

    We will be going to London tomorrow morning VERY early - first flight out at 7 am - for a few things. Fristly to find her accommodation, to meet her colleagues and to generally get a feel for the place.
    She has never been in London before.

    So I'm on this evening for a few minutes but things are starting to become a bit much. I hope to come back on here regularly asap.
    (((HUGS))))
