Jezzzz.... if I'd known you'd get your tits in a knot I soooo wouldn't have tried eating your cushion Mum!.... Cos I WAS a really beautiful dog......

I am SO NOT TALKING to you anymore! Sheeesh.

I mean, hell..... I sure ain't gunna be winning any beauty prizes NOW am I???
I've got my eye on you ... ya tart! Shit it's cold, think I'll just stay under this cushion. TRAUMATISED I AM.

So that was Teddy after his severe clipping.... not that wrapt in me! But he will get over it, and he hasn't got any knots now! Ummmm well actually he hasn't got much of anything anymore! LOL

TODAY: Not sure if I will go in to sit with my FIL today, he could linger for a lot longer and it's a fair distance from here.... and the housework is simply not getting done! Nor is blog reading/commenting...

So, we will play it by ear, take each day as it comes and hope for a peaceful passing soon.

Stew went in to see his Dad first thing this morning, he's back to the awful gasping for breath stage... so after I dropped the kids off at school I went back in.... and spent the next 4 hours watching him struggle for breath.

The doctor came and actioned a morphine pump for him, so at least now we know he isn't in any pain. This could still take a while, it's so sad knowing he's got to go through this.

Anyway... tomorrow I think we are going to take a break from it all and go over to Thames to visit my girlfriend 'F' and just chill out for the day... we need it.

But for right now... I'm going down to the garage and making a start of sorting out Christmas presents! I still don't know what I need to get .. what I've got... OR ANYTHING! Not enough hours in the day at the moment.

End of Day: Ok, it's a bit early but... my Father-in-Law just passed away.... Stew will be home soon and I think we will spend the evening organising his funeral... reminiscing and having a few drinks to help us wind down a bit. nite nite
