What made your day a crap one??

Looking out the window and seeing the snow drifting steadily down and piling up on the path and driveway. Couple of feet deep already and growing, means I'll be shovelling first thing in the morning which, with how my knees are throbbing, I could well do without. Specially since I'll just be replicating my efforts of most mornings this week.
On the other hand ... I can always cheer myself up by picturing the Count cavorting around outside the gothic cottage.

Pinched nerve in my shoulder at the moment so the cavorting is quite gentle...mostly. I could post you the girls though? they'd love clearing that much snow...might be a big snowman left somewhere when they'd done.

Was at physio last Monday and the nice young chap asked me if I'd been doing the exercises with the large elastic band they'd given me. Er.. a bit. It's important you exercise it what have you been doing? Well yesterday I split the wood from an apple tree, a small cherry tree and a weeks worth of seasoned firewood, then I stacked about a tonne of wood in the shed.
I think his face was possibly saying 'Stupid patients' at that point, he got his own back in the way physicalterrorists do.
 
Absolute bummer Glen !

Just back from the vet, dog cut a pad on her paw on Saturday. Little sleep for two nights now as she's been having enforced rest in the house since then and is used to minimum two hours a day running free. She's climbing the wallsand so am I. Just to add to my delights the results of her full blood tests have returned and she's allergic to beef, turkey, chicken, rabbit, white fish and salmon. So she's on a diet of venison or lamb. Gonna be a long week until she can exercise again !

Hi J....Arden Grange sell a very decent lamb based hypoallergenic food for sensitive souls, kibble and wet. My mutt has been on it for years and is doing well.

Thanks Antster, she's presently thriving on Natures Menu frozen venison or lamb chunks ( thawed out obviously ! ) however I'll look online at this food as I always keep an eye open for alternates in case of probs obtaining the NM. Liley's Kitchen are another one the nutritionist suggested. Appreciate the info.

I'd be thriving on that J, a slight word of caution...I'd take any nutritionist's advice with a pinch of low sodium salt as those types of intolerance/allergy tests are rather sketchy and shouldn't be treated as gospel. Hopefully she has also mentioned trying to reintroduce some different foods to your dogs diet at a later date.
 
Yes, we had the choice of rwo tests, the basic £100 one or the full spectrum £300+ in depth check and analysis. We went for the major check with Sensitest from Avacta Animal Services rather then an ' in house ' basic test carried out by the clinic. We intend to repeat the test 12 months after the initial one to see if her intolerances have changed. At the present time even dog treats containing any of the ' forbidden ' ingredients have her licking, scratching and irritated. It's not any of the fillers or other ingredients in the chews or snacks as venison, lamb or rice treats from the same makers are well accepted.

Decided to shift the snow from my drive and the car, all went well until I opened the car to get the ice scraper to finish getting the ice out from around the wipers. All I did was open the car grab the scraper and shut the door again, only it was followed by a what sounded like something falling out the back of the car. It was the rear window! It just shattered. With all this bad weather and a backlog of work Autoglass can only get to me on Wednesday next week. In the grand scheme of things many worse things can happen, but it is still annoying.

Fortunately I can work from home next week or blag my wife's car if really needed, but I usually drive to work. My regular drive to work is around 25 minutes, public transport is about 1.5 hours!

Another plus is her car may be an ageing Citroen C1 but it has all weather (m+s) rated tyres and is actually not a bad car when it is icy and in the snow, providing the snow is not too deep.
 
Some old SOB in a pickup as large as a Tiger tank ignored the lane signals and he barreled into the left side of my car from the side at an oblique angle. Totaled the driver side front & rear doors. I hit my left temple on the driver side window and wrenched my back a tad. My head hurts I will add, but ambulance crew checked me out & said good to go. The other fellow has insurance and the Police officer did cite him. In the meantime my car looks like gypsies live in it. :mad:
