I’ve never been tempted more than today to drink.
The day in some respects has been lovely. BB and I went National Trusting with a friend.
We both gazed in wonder at the colours of Autumn on a wood walk. She constantly reached up and tried to touch the leaves. We shared a lunch outside and then during her nap I came home snuggled up with a blanket, a cuppa, Dexter and a good book.
On the flipside, BB was sick over herself on the way to NT and I had to pull over. On the way back she pooed through her nappy.
On the subject of poo, things are no better with Dexter. We have a good day then 6 bad ones. All my soft furnishings have sheets over them to help protect them from his accidents and I’ve never cleaned up so much poo. We are vacuuming every day and up in the middle of the night when we can hear him going, to check he’s clean. We are all exhausted but dont want to give up on him. I’ve been brought up to believe when you adopt an animal it’s their forever home.
We’ve had countless discussions with the vets and heading back in on Thursday. After cleaning up a load this afternoon, I feel so sorry for him and just so sad.
My SD is home and we’ve thankfully got a sweet 7 yr old and not a stroppy pants. We asked her if she’d like to go football as if she really really loved it we were going to take her. She’s confessed she doesn’t like it, she only goes so mummy can talk to the other mummys. It also appears she hasn’t been isolating the last 2 weeks. Her mother told her she didnt need to isolate when staying at her partners as the germs didn’t follow them. So they’ve been Macdonalds, John Lewis, the pub and heaven knows where else. No wonder it’s spreading.
On the subject of the ex wife she spent loads on BB and it’s made me feel really uncomfortable. I’ve text thanking her, but it doesn’t sit right with me.
My SD turned up late, starving so we had a late tea and she’s gone to bed 2 hours later than normal.
So now I’m here, cuddling my cat and hubster shoving sugar into my mouth. I’m holding onto the first bit of the post like it’s a precious jewel.
I will get to 100 days.
Happy Friday everyone
