Fingers crossed, AtS.

Tim, definitely relief all round. I feel so sorry for those who have been flooded out, so much is lost and often it takes many months to dry out.

I was pleased to see several primroses are in flower in the garden; up to now the main flowers have been snowdrops, bergenia (elephant ears) and jasmine, but the primroses definitely hint at spring not being far away. Last year some of the primrose clumps were huge, so maybe there’ll be a repeat this year.

Felv infected cat still has kidney infection but not more serious kidney problems. Antibiotics changed and back again next Wednesday for more testing to check that bacteria has cleared up.
Older cat, aka mean difficult cat, has gum infection again after only having treatment four weeks ago. More injections and this time we have tablets to give her to manage it so that, hopefully, she doesn’t get out of hand.
What hasn’t pleased me is 600+€ of vet bills since early January but they are our fur babies!

Two things really.
1) The log man says he will try to deliver tomorrow.
2) I managed to get the car started after sitting for about a week in sub zero temps.
Had to move it to allow access for the logs. So glad its just a 20-year old Peugeot

Specialist horse vet has been to examine our old Fjord ponys rear left 'ankle' which he was still favouring.
An hour later after xrays, echograms & a €330 invoice he pronounced it is a slightly twisted ligament which our vet & a horse osteopath had already suggested so nice to have final confirmation it's nothing too serious.
