End of a long hard week

... so Herbie is having yet another lie-down. He's not been very well, perhaps because it's turned warm. Last week I was scraping ice off the windscreen every morning before driving off to work, this week I'm in a T-shirt and sandals (oh, and trousers as well, I'm going out fully dressed). (In case anyone was wondering!)

I've just started studying physiology and anatomy, so that I can get onto a canine massage course. I dropped biology a long time ago, so now to get onto this course, I'm having to do a pre-qualifying course and both my brain cells have had to stretch a bit. I'm doing it for the challenge, and it certainly has been so far. I'm going to be great at Scrabble after this, though - just learnt that the xiphoid is a lump at the bottom of the breastbone.

I hope Herbie starts feeling better soon! It is so hard to seem them not doing well :(

Good luck with your class!

What a beautiful boy he is! (And I'm happy to see Hollie's hind end made it into the background of the photo as well!) Poor boy -- big temperature changes are hard to handle let alone when one is courageously battling lymphoma.

Whew! Trousers as well? I was beginning to wonder if "Casual Friday" had taken on a whole new meaning!

Whew, it's been so hot recently, I've needed lots of lie downs too. Sorry to hear Herbie's not been well.

But how exciting to be starting a canine massage course. I hope you'll keep us updated on how it goes via this blog.

I've been meaning to give you a call but usually find it's after 10pm when I've got some time free for a natter...

I'm such a country bumpkin that I'm usually heading up to bed around 10 - I have to be up at 6 during the week, and I need my sleep! Hope you're doing OK despite the heat.
