Dogs, cats and cars
Brenin and Ruby asleep on the couch sleeping (this arrangement can only happen while both are asleep)
Brenin (the injured dog) went through 3 “buckets” this weekend and one bottle of “wound guard” (the spray to stop him touching his foot — it is meant to taste horrible — didn’t stop Brenin) as a result we have had him indoors to keep him quiet and from not running about (our house had to be quickly dog proofed). It took awhile to settle him but by the Saturday and Sunday afternoons he was lying quietly on the couch whilst I watched a DVD next to him. I could wander off and do other things once he was full asleep. Ruby (the kitten) was not happy with this arrangement and when she wasn’t asleep on my lap, she had to be in the bedroom as she would either want to sit and stare at Brenin (which he found a little freaky) or spit at him and show her claws (her way of saying “this is my house”). My husband is home this week dog sitting — glad it is him and not me (he told me that today hasn’t been to bad)! Only another 3 weeks. . . .

What else happened — My eldest son went and bought a new car. I thought he was quite brave, he did all the research and spoken with the Ford dealership and by this Wednesday will have his new car. I was very proud of him — buying cars can be very daunting. As you can image, he is REALLY EXCITED.
I'm attending a 2 day training course this week – I will be a whiz at Excel by the end (I am already quite good, so this is a refresher advance course)!!
Now back to a “normal” week – what is normal anyway??
