We have sunshine and blue skies here today 😀
And judging by how much moulting the cats are doing, I suspect warmer weather isnt too far off. There are veritable clouds of cat fur in the air each time I stroke them and Rory filled her brush 3 times over when I groomed her the other day.
Poor Mitch has a nasty puncture wound that we are keeping a close eye on. Not sure if he got it defending his territory while outside, or whether it was Rory that inflicted it 😦 So far its healing well with no signs of swelling and he’s leaving it alone. Bless him.
My pain levels today are “reasonable”. Its there but so much better than it has been. I think the 4 nights of decent sleep are to thank for it. But I need that to continue for as long as possible. It is just not possible to cope with FM without decent sleep.
And I have to send out a ginormous “Thank you” to about 6 of my fellow bloggers today. I can’t be specific because it would take too much explaining to describe here how your individual posts have combined inside my head to give me a massive boost. But I have been reminded of something that I hadn’t realised I had ‘forgotten’.
It is so hard to explain and I just hope that if you read this you’ll feel my gratitude if it was you. And yes, I am aware of how barmy that sounds LOL. Just roll with it 😀
On a less cheerful note, they have been cutting down one of the trees behind my house today 😦 I have no idea why, but I hope they had a damn good reason.
Behind my house are two long parallel rows of Horse Chestnut trees. And they are old. As is the avenue they form. The avenue was actually the ‘driveway’ to an estate that used to exist and it shows up on the very first Ordnance Survey map of this area. 1860 something, if I remember correctly.
I hate when trees get cut down. It brings out my inner eco-warrior and I feel it at a very deep down level as ‘wrong’. I sobbed when all the elm trees down our road were cut down decades ago due to the spread of Dutch Elm disease.
This is the 5th tree to go in my neighbourhood recently 😦
Anyway……..now you all think I’m a raving nutter 😛 I shall disappear and go do stuff.
