One week on

It’s been a week since hubby left for his boys trip up north 
Trixie had her spaying operation on Monday and has been great. 
The cone the vets put in her was on heavy hair her to even lift her head. I had ordered this a while ago and it’s much better. 
If she is really determined she can kinda reach her stitches but as I’m always with her she’s not been able to do much with them 
The hardest thing has been keeping her inside all the time and keeping her from jumping 

I’ve been busy keeping the time fires burning, literally, keeping the fur family feed and watered and joining my dragonfly squares 
My mum stayed with me a couple of days and the girls visited on Wednesday as usual. 
The boys are at the shed working and have made sure I have plenty of wood for my fire 
So it’s been a full week that has flown. 

One more week and he will be back home, just in time for Trixies stitches to come. 
She will love being able to go outside and play with Teddy and the cats again 

Enjoy the long weekend 
See ya xxx


  1. It's good to know you had company.......both human and dog lol. Have you felt lonely at all?
    Are the squares for a special blanket?

  2. What a delightfully girlish cone.
    Have an enjoyable week with your crocheting. I would love a week of quiet so I could finish a few of my projects

  3. Things have not gone to plan

  4. Sounds like a good week to us. When it is getting cold it is nice to have an excuse to put your feet up on the couch.

    Have a nice weekend.

  5. I have a toy dog as well (a Powderpuff) and she is a devil for trying to get at stitches. She hated the cone of shame, so my vet had another option that worked well. I thoroughly recommend a Post Operative Body Suit instead of a cone as the dog is far more comfortable, even though you can expect some strange looks when you take them for a walk.

    I hope young Poppy is soon back to herself and that hubby will be back soon.

  6. So glad to hear Trixie is doing well.

    Sounds like you are being well looked after in hubby's absence.

    Have a lovely weekend,
