EWWWWW

Did I tell you I ordered some 'raw wool' on Trademe a few days ago?
I think I did.

Well it arrived this morning.  In a black sack:


ABOVE:  And, it SURE IS RAW!  OMG it stinks so bad.
I swear the sheep wasn't even dagged before they clipped that wool off it.  There's dags, twigs, you name it all through it.
Disgusting.

I'm not impressed.  The person could have made an attempt at sending wool without friggin dags!  

So now I have to go through it all, pull off all the dags and then wash it.  I knew I'd need to wash it of course, but not de-dag it too!

I have to head down to the supermarket to get more laundry detergent... we have run out.  Can't clean it without detergent.  It's going to take me a few days to get it all washed and dry, so I'm going to be busy!

I slept in this morning, hence this late post.  I had a yukky night.  Dealing with the 'T' is a messy business.  Wish I'd asked about the pill option, but didn't know to ask.  Sadly.

It's 8.39 am, and I'm still in me nightie!  I better get my act together.

DOGSTARS:  LOL!  'Dags' are sheep shit stuck to the wool!

Some lovely news, one of my blogger friends just got a new baby granddaughter.  Congratulations Jen and family!

I will certainly try and find some of that Ural Jo, thanks.  I always wear cotton knickers!  Never anything else.  And that was TMI too!  lol

It's rather weird how having a sore ho-ha can slow you down!  I've felt totally 'off' all day.  Still nowhere near all better, that's for sure.

I did get some vacuming done this afternoon, just concentrating on all the edges, behind doors and furniture, you know, all the places kids don't do.

Kills my back though.  But someone has to do it.

Dinner tonight is a humble mince stew, mashed potatoes with cheese, cabbage par cooked, and mixed veges 'n' peas.  Should be nice.  Dinner doesn't have to be fancy to be nice eh?

Well, dinner WAS delicious.  Super tasty mince stew.  The family loved it.
It's now 'wind down' time.  Watching TV.  Mucking around on the computer at the same time... I never do just one thing at a time!

  2. Hope you have a better day after your yucky night...the "T" is sux, I sympathise with you.

  3. I usually opt for the pessary when I get the dreaded "T". Nothing worse than creams for weeks! Hope you find relief soon.

    PS I guess "raw" wool would be dags and all. Or else it wouldn't be raw...

  4. And for future reference, if you ever get one of those girly problems again. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE use the 1 day cream treatment. It BURNS like a mofu!

    Morning Chris, when your out buy some ural it may help with your symptoms, also it’s not to late to use the tablet, the other thing is to wear cotton undies while your suffering from the dreaded T. Jo

    1. Yes, I have used the Ural for a UTI, it is really good. Pre bionics are supposed to be taken with antibiotics to help avoid "T", I know my chemist usually recommends we get some.

    1. Well my dogs get 'dags' sometimes too! And yeah, I think any sort of hard shit hanging off a butt is called a 'dag' here! AND you can be called a 'DAG' if you are a being really funny too! English language, so many interpretations!

    2. We don't have cute words for turds hanging off of Butt hairs. You have much more expressive wordage over there!

    3. Ahhh the things you can learn! I bet if I came over there and talked like 'normal', half of you would be horrified! I called a guy a 'dork' years ago and he was massively offended! Here a dork is someone who's considered a dick/twit/dag/idiot. Where he came from.. it was offensive! How was I to know??? lol

  9. Ural is usually for a urinary tract infection I think? not thrush?

    1. You are right of course Marie, but as I am having urinary tract type symptoms AS WELL... it might not hurt? I tell ya... it's a sad state of affairs! lol ... but not funny really.

  10. Your dinner sounds delish. All the things I love - and simple is always good. Hope your nether regions feel better soon.

  12. Uhm... I don't even know what to say about that but can you leave a review? It mightn't be a problem for some people if they know what to expect but gooood gracious opening a bag of poo that has been sitting about - doesn't the smell get up into the wool and stay? Wait, does sheep poo HAVE a smell? Is it like horsey poo?
