You get up in the morning, the sun is beginning to peep through, that first cup of coffee tastes just fabulous, the early morning treat of almond cantuccini biscuits tastes glorious and sets you up for the day.
And then - wham!
It all goes, as they say, belly up!
Or in my case 'shoulder' up!
I should explain!
If you have dipped into this blog for a while you may have met my dog - Gazza (also known as Gascoigne, Asbo dog etc.) He is now an old boy - 13 1/2 and if I am honest, beginning to slow down.
Well son No 1 also has a dog. Pigeon the Whippet. You will have met him before from time to time as well.
And Daughter No 1 also has dogs! She has 2 dogs. Koda and Lola. They too have featured before.
That's Koda in the front (big ginger boy) and Lola in Andy's arms. Small, cute etc. etc.
Well, for reasons too complicated to go into here, I am dog sitting Koda and Pigeon at the same time. (Lola has booked herself into another doggy hotel!)
And, well, Koda and Pigeon had a collision! And, to be blunt, Pigeon came off worst!
So much worst it involved a trip to the vet! And stitches! And stress!!
He has a spectacular shoulder injury!
And now my bank balance is considerably lighter, Pigeon is sporting a horrendous injury and my nerves are frazzled!
As you can imaging, not much time in the studio!
I cleaned the oven instead!
