Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

We all love a good sleep don't we? 
Badger Boo is no exception, he can sleep for England.

My favorite picture is the one above, but just for fun I though you should see just how sleepy this little dog is.

I think you'll agree he's going for some sort of a world sleeping record.

Yep it's Smile it's The Weekend Time Again

Me, Myself and I

I recently discovered Bit Strips on facebook, they're a bit like Marmite you either love them or hate them.
I love them.

Sadly they don't have animals yet, so Badger Boo's avatar is a handsome, vertically challenged Mr Muscles with a curly hairdo. 
I have a lot of fun in the odd spare minute I've got at the moment making up little Bit Strip cartoons, the possibilities are endless.

The other day I had too many painkillers and felt a bit Oooooo all day,  the other is pretty self explanatory LOL

My main victim is of course Himself and whilst they give me and others a bit of a giggle I don't think he's too impressed by them. Which of course means I have to share them with a wider audience, it would be rude not too.

So here's a very small insight into our life.

Hope you all have a great weekend, and don't forget to keep smiling.

It's Been a Good(ish) Week

Me, Myself and I

It's been a pretty good week here.

Although Himself is still suffering a lot pain, he received a phone call on Monday offering him an operation slot the first week in January. This is fantastic news, so apologies for this post being a day late, but I was at the hospital yesterday with Himself having his Pre-Op Assesment done
Fingers crossed all goes well this time.

The camper van had it's MOT done on Thursday and passed first time. It was a surprise as it's sat for approx 18 months unused although we did put new wipers on and all the tyres have had to be replaced one by one over the last 12 months due to "unexplained" punctures.
It also had a service, new brake fluid and it's annual SMMT to ensure we don't die of carbon monoxide poisoning plus checking the water tanks are safe and not harbouring any nasty bacteria to make us unwell. 
All this took a couple of days which meant I was left car less as my car had been left at the storage area, which was really awkward when my son texted me asking for a lift back from University on Thursday night and I couldn't give him one.

Badger Boo was very excited to see the Camper Van again, I'm sure he thought we were off to the beach. 
Poor Badger Boo, you can see the disappointment on his cute little face when he realised we were at the garage and not the beach.

Off on my next Daft Adventure: or maybe not!
The crafting side of things is going very well at the moment and I'm very busy. I hope to update my website with more news this weekend, although I've been very naughty and fallen behind on the whole online/media front recently **slaps own wrist**

Smile it's the Weekend

 I'm sick to death of hospitals!
I spend a lot of time at the RSCH with my own conditions, but this year I'm there practically every week, if it's not me it's Himself.

It all started last year when Himself had severe complications after a routine operation, which  I wrote about at the time.
Eventually he recovered, although he still suffers pain in his left side at the operation site, he's had to learn to live with it.

This year Himself started treatment for a kidney stone in his right kidney, after several unsuccessful rounds of Lithotripsy (not sure of spelling) and two operations, stents and months of agonising pain, the stone has still not been removed, the stent causes him excruciating pain 24/7 and he's waiting for a third operation to try and remove it.

He had his second operation in September and even though his surgeon says it is urgent, he was informed yesterday he has another 18 week wait!

As a result he's now being forced to research going Private as he can't bear it any longer, and frankly nor can I. 
It's been going on for far too long!

Tempers are frayed, we both need more rest than we're getting as neither of us can do much for our selves, let alone each other and life is very hard.

I know your thinking " But where's the smile this week?"

Well I have two for you, the first is Himself's favorite video of all time and always makes him laugh, and the second is one of my many favorites, enjoy.

Smile it's The Weekend

It's been a strange old week here. I've  been busy crafting between bouts of feeling terrible, I've been struck down with "The Dreaded Lurgy" better known Tonsilitis which has now become a stinking cold.

It's taken a lot out of me energy wise, but I've woken up this morning feeling so much better now that the snot has solidified instead of my nose being a constant running tap.

Sorry, was that too much information?

To cheer myself up I went on a little shopping trip yesterday, not being well enough to drive to Hobbycraft in Woking, I popped into Lorimers in Godalming.

OMG Look what I found!!

I need a Bubble-Wrap fix
How I love Bubble Wrap 

After my brief fling with the bubble wrap I headed into the craft section to buy myself some double sided sticky tape, not as exciting I grant you, but essential.

It's starting to get really cold here now, I've even had to start wearing my thick jumpers, soon I'll have to it'll be time to put the radiators on.

Even though Badger Boo has his own heat pad in his bed that stays warm for up to 8 hours, look what I found on the sofa when I arrived back from my trip out.

Cheeky pup! 
He looked so comfy I left him there to sleep for a while.

Don't forget the link up below can be about anything, all are welcome and it stays open until midnight Sunday.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

The Post That Nearly Wasn't

Apologies for the lateness of today's post. 
In fact I very nearly didn't add a post this week.

I hope you will understand when I tell you why.

On Tuesday I received some truly devastating news and it has totally knocked me for six.

A person I considered a good friend took their own life. I feel totally shell shocked and have so many unanswered questions.
It's so sad someone should feel so desperate, I truly hope they've found the peace they were searching for.

This week I'm unable to come up with a  happy smiley post, as a result I've decided to permanently change Smile it's Friday to:-

 Smile it's the Weekend 

From now on posts can be about anything you want as the weekend is approaching, more details can be found here.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.

Smile it's Friday

A walk in the woods is always guaranteed to cheer me up, especially when accompanied by my best friend Badger Boo

We're very lucky to live in the Surrey Hills which is an area outstanding natural beauty, we have so many lovely areas to chose from to walk but my favorite by far is Witley Common.

Badger Boo just loves to charge around and around flushing out the Squirrels. 

Get otta ma way, I'm coming through!!!
Shhhhh I spy a pesky Squirre!!!

He also has a passion for sticks (even though he's not allowed to play with them for safety reasons) So he gets around the rules by always trying to pick up one that's far to big!

The noises he makes in frustration at not being able to pick it up always have me in stitches.

Come with me stick GRRRRR
Badger's favorite thing to annoy me make me smile, is to pop into pictures when I'm trying to capture "The Shot" I've lost count of how many times he's appeared in pictures he shouldn't LOL.

He's always doing something really daft and helps me find the joy in each day.

His sight has always been really poor because of PRA  but now its complicated by the appearance of Cataracts. He also seems to be going deaf, which we noticed recently because he hardly ever barks at the door now (thankfully) it was the one bad habit I was never able to break him of.

But at 12 years old he is still fit, healthy and active, living life to the full and bringing joy to all he meets.
You can't help but smile and fall in love with this cute little face.

Hope everyone has a great weekend xxxxx

Smile it's Friday

I stumbled across this video on facebook, it's brilliant!
I've lost count of how many times I've watched it in the last couple of days.

If you grew up in the 70's and 80's sit back and enjoy the memories.
If your too young to remember any of it, think of it as a history lesson.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend xxx
