Treacle update!

Today is Treacle's big day, off to the vet for her op.
She has a bladder stone!
Sooooo big operation
 and hopefully she'll be all sorted I hope so because she's been causing havoc around the house with her accidents (yuk) I'm now a bit of an expert at getting rid of THAT smell.

Obviously she was a reluctant patient and made all sorts of complaints about going.
And to be blunt my wallet is making quite alot of noise too.
Vets fees are pretty steep.
However I think if you take an animal into your home you should be prepared to look after them whatever.
It's what credit cards are for as far as I'm concerned. I know some people would say it's not worth it but I'd rather spend my money on my cat instead of a flash car, fancy clothes or expensive holidays!

So here she is all angry and sore, bless her.
And one bladder stone less, thank goodness. 
We've had to put her in the pen because she is a master of escape, somehow she got out of her travel box and  into the garden 5 minutes after getting home!
The other two cats are keeping their distance, proper scardy cats.

Lots of treats await and I'm sure it won't be long before she's back to lounging in the sunshine.
Lots of tablets and medicine to give her so a bit of nursing duty for me this weekend.
In other news. 
Well still no news for my Mum, she's still waiting to find out why she's in agony when she walks around.
I'll keep you posted.
Have a good weekend.


  1. Awww poor Treacle! but phew she's made it through the op and is on her way to recovery. I echo all your sentiments about your beloved kitty, mine have always been treated like royalty, and always will because I love them! I lost my beautiful boy Cookie in '09 and it cost a small fortune to treat him, only for him to be put to sleep anyway :( Small consolation I still have his brother Jamie to smother with affection. Will be keeping your Mum in my thoughts, hoping they get to the bottom of what's causing her pain.....xx

    1. Thank you Sharron, Treacle had a little melt down this morning and complained so much I let her out of the pen and took the collar off. She's much calmer now and has promised to be a good girl and not lick her tummy as long as I don't put her back IN THERE!!!

  2. (((hugs))) for you and Treacle. I am with you on the purpose of credit cards, that is all I have mine for! You can't put a price on furry friends in my opinion. I am glad Treacle is on the mend. I am very sorry to hear you Mom is still uncomfortable and in pain, we often say the pets get far better medical care than we do! xxx

A beautiful day here in Portsmouth. A hint of Spring in the air and the first outdoor spinning of the year.

It felt good to be outside listening to the birds and soaking up the warm sunshine on the deck.

The cats thought so too! Ghetto having a stretch.

Lord Howard(as he is now known!) relaxing! After an hour sitting in the sunshine it was on with my walking boots and off to the sea.

First stop Milton Common, the sky full of Brent Geese chattering as they flew overhead.

The Solent was particularly sparkly today.

The Hard in Old Portsmouth looked higgledy piggledy and colourful.

Then a final treat as I wandered home, a glorious sunset. A day to lift the spirits and make me glad to be alive! Hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend too. Love ♥Sue♥

Back in the zone

Hello So it's been a while but I think it's safe to say that I'm back in the zone! The spinning wheel is out and I'm loving it. Loving the calm rhythmic movement of fibre flowing through my fingers, watching the bobbins fill with gorgeous colour, enjoying the meditative process that spinning is. I've been spinning some beautiful Alpaca and silk that I dyed AGES ago. It's very soft and fluffy but spins up really well wanting to be thin and sophisticated.

I've also been admiring this beauty, I know a rainbow landed on the rug! It's Milk Fibre, it take dye amazingly well, it's incredibly fine and slippery. I tried spinning it 'neat' but it proved impossible so I'm carding it with Merino.

What do you think?

I'm really pleased, I'm a carding newbie but again it's a wonderful process which I find completely absorbing.

I'm planning on carding each rainbow colour separately I'll let you know how it goes.
So how are you all? Hopefully f…
