Slow progress

Thanks to Acrylik for her kind words on her blog about my bear and to everyone who commented both there and here :)

Thanks also to all for their good wishes for Cadbury. He is fine and the lump has gone down with no probems at all.
I am slightly annoyed at the vets though as she really did scare the crap out of me, ruin my weekend and probably cost me nearly £50 in unnecessary vet bills just because she didn't have the experience that the other vet did, and didn't go and check with a colleague while I was there the first time. I don't expect people to know everyt
hing off the tops of their heads, but I do have a problem with people making out like they know what's what and then giving wrong diagnoses, then changing their minds half way through the consultation and deciding it would be better if you came in again in a couple of days to check on things when coincidentally the senior vet will be doing the examination...

I suppose that now I (and hopefully scary-scapel-mad-vet-woman) have more experience of lumpy cats after this, and the main thing is that the little fella is ok.


Not vast am
ounts of knitting have taken place this week. Not sure why not, I just seem to have been spending more time doing other things. I had fun experimenting with my organic veg delivery this week as it included sweet potato and butternut squash. What to do with these exotic things? Ainsley Harriot will know, I thought, turning to his 'Low Fat Meals in Minutes' book - and he did! Curry - and it was actually a lot nicer than I thought it was going to be.

Anyway. Knitting. Yes, well....




And here is something else you can do with merino yarn....

Cadbury and Merino is a great picture.

Squash makes a lovely soup - slow roast with a little grated red chilli and onion, then puree into milk (or milk/stock mix)and simmer. Also mash sweet potato and squash go into mash potato really well to lower the GI and make it much more body friendly!!! Or. . . . (fed up yet) boil lightly and use as pizza topping!

Oh, I'm so pleased that Cadbury is doing better - that picture of him and the merino is adorable!

Ah, how lovely! We had a Cadbury too, years ago, he was a lovely cat, but had asthma (and was the same colour as the sofa so frequently got sat on).

It's good to hear he's ok, they can be such a worry. Sadly one of ours has gone missing, been missing 2 weeks now.
