Thanks for your comments, Betty had a much better afternoon yesterday, although she wouldn't eat any of her dinner......which was a bit unfortunate as we'd put her medication in it. As she's supposed to have the antibiotics twice a day, I put another tablet inside a rolled up piece of ham - she ate that! She slept very well last night, which meant I did too - we'd both had a dose of CBD oil. She's not obsessively licking her foot anymore either.
This morning I'm making a carrot cake for a neighbour's birthday - I'd made one last month, we have a coffee and cake morning with this neighbour about once a month and she really enjoyed the cake (she asked to keep the remaining half of it!) so thought I'd do a whole one for her. Her son, DiL and baby granddaughter are coming for the weekend so it'll be for all of them. I'll try to do better with the cream cheese frosting though.....last time it was too runny and slid off the cake (not that it affected the taste, just the appearance) - I think it was because the cream cheese was a half fat one, and the butter was one of the spreadable ones in a tub, so had oil blended with it instead of being pure butter. This time I'm using full fat cheese and pure butter. I'll have to think of something else to put in the oven along with the cake, I can't just have it on for one thing. Maybe some sausage rolls or little savoury tarts, I've got 2 or 3 packs of pastry in the freezer. Or some shortbread for Christmas.....
Having my hair cut this afternoon - whilst longer hair which covers my ears and neck is a good thing now the weather's got so much colder, when it's too long it's just flat and boring - my hair is so fine it's got no body so needs a lot of product to give it any height - I like it spiky on top. I'll just have to wear a scarf when we go out.....not a hardship, I've got loads.
It's been foggy here for several days now, and it lingers all day - just opened the curtains as it's just starting to get light and it's foggy again. I really don't like winter 😕
There's the monthly craft market in the town on Sunday, as it's December they're going to have more Christmassy stalls so we'll go and have a look at that.
So glad Betty is feeling better and that you both got a good night's sleep. Like you, I've been letting my hair grow, more out of apathy than anything else. I'm thinking I'll leave it till Christmas then see how I feel. The scissors might be out before then! xxReplyDelete
I'm so glad Betty is better, carrot cake sounds good, but I can only eat the ones hubby makes as I have a nut allergy. Is the craft market in Bridgwater on Sunday, we will be down for the weekend.ReplyDelete
Yes it is Marlene, it's 10 till 3, in the high street and the pedestrianised part. Perhaps we'll see you there!Delete
I will be wearing a red hooded duffle coat....Delete
I'm sure I'll recognise you from the photos on your blog Marlene - and I'll be wearing a camel coloured coat with leopardskin collar.Delete
Good news about Betty and that you got some rest. It's nice you have a neighbor to visit with. Could you do things more frequently with her?ReplyDelete
She leads a very busy life and has little free time, so once a month is as much as we can fit in with her.Delete
Have been reading your blog forever (I'm interested in card making, cooking and we have a caravan and visit Cheddar and surrounding areas quite often) and glad to hear that Betty is on the mend. I'm very interested in CBD oil but not sure what to buy. Could you please let me know which one you use please. I have arthritis and anxiety and the one that you use sounds ideal.ReplyDelete
Hello, I normally have one called Lovehemp, which I buy online. At the moment though, Superdrug are doing 3 for the price of 2, they have several different brands, the one I've just bought is called Cannaray night-time drops. It certainly helped me sleep last night.Delete
Thank you. Will pop to Superdrug and have a look.Delete
I'm so pleased that Betty is on the mend, they are a worry aren't they when they hurt themselves or are poorly. Suky has to have steroid drops in her ear for the next ten days after seeing the vet the other day, she's already hating me doing it now that it's not hurting her as much. There's no hiding ear drops in food unfortunately ... haha.ReplyDelete
I am so glad that Betty seems to be doing much better. I hope you enjoy/enjoyed your visit with the neighbour.ReplyDelete
I am glad Betty is doing better. The carrot cake sounds yummy.ReplyDelete
