I had one of those weekends that not a lot went to plan. It started Friday night when Ryan took the dogs out for their last walk around 11. I had been getting all my things ready for my mega crafting day the next day, got into my jammies, make up off and was heading to my bed when the doorbell went at midnight, it was Ryan...Ruby had gone AWOL and he'd been looking for her for over half an hour. I grabbed my dressing gown, put on my dogwalking coat, hat, Uggs and headed off in search of missing pup. She eventually turned up after about 15 minutes and I put her on the lead and marched her home giving her an earful.
I was up with the birds on Saturday and did my Zumba, showered and went downstairs for my porridge only to be told that Ruby had been sick in the kitchen and utility during the night. I let her outside again, got their breakfast, settled down to mine when I realised it was REALLY quiet. I opened my kitchen door to the dining room to find that Ruby had been sick 3 times on my cream carpet...it wasn't just sick, there were lots of bones in it. Now I know what she was up to the night before. Someone had thrown a chicken carcass into the woods for the foxes and she was having a midnight feast!!! I cleaned the mess up only to find she'd decorated the hall carpet as well.
She seemed ok so off I went to pick up Elaine (after a quick pitstop at McDonald's for a much needed coffee) and we headed to Lynn's where we had a GREAT day catching up, eating, colouring, laughing, eating, chatting, more colouring, Cricuting, eating finally getting home about midnight!!! I told you it was a great day lol.
Got up Sunday, let dogs out, let them in, next thing Ruby is sick again but this time there was blood so phoned emergency vet and they advised to bring her in. Chicken bones can splinter and are so dangerous to dogs. Long story short (sorry :-S) she didn't have any blockages, she's on Zantac and I got a bill for £150!!! I am really angry and if I knew who had thrown the chicken in the woods I would hand them the bill. If it's who I think it is, they are dog owners so it's more than irresponsible of them to do it.
It was also my Dad's birthday on Saturday...79 years young though when he first married my mom I would look at his driver's license and for about 10 years I thought he was 33...that was the year he was born lol. Anywho, he's not thrilled he's 79 but he looks about 15 years younger and is still climbing ladders, putting windows in, tiling floors. I guess this is what keeps him young.
Dad's an avid golfer so I had to use Magnum & Lily Fore! digi for his card. This is what I came up with...
I followed a sketch I saw on the MFT blog using my favourite MME pp.
He hadn't received it when I spoke to him on Sunday but hopefully it will arived soon.
