Weekend? What weekend.

Well, that's what it feels like anyway. I seem to always be doing something. Except for the odd period when I stop for a few minutes. I keep thinking I need another few days like the Easter rally. Just a few days of no chores, no cooking, no nothing!

Anyway, enough of that. This week, although busy, has been so mundane I have nothing to report. Fluffy is on the mend. The rib still gives him grief and he is coughing up crap, but that's how it's supposed to go so he'll be fine.

Dobby finally got her room clean(ish) this weekend. Remember last weekend I bought her new school shoes? I got a call before lunch on Friday. "Mum, my shoes have a hole in them. Seriously, I can't walk in them". What to do? I suggested she go to the office for tape or something. As it happens, they have a couple pairs of spare shoes so she was able to borrow a pair for the rest of the day.

When she got home, the whole toe of her shoe has come unstuck. So today I took them back. They really did look like they had been worn more than a week, but I had the receipt as proof and they had no choice but to refund them. They originally told me they could do a swap. I said right out I did not want another pair of them. Doesn't have to be the same they said. No, I didn't want another pair. I found a pair in another store I want, so I don't want to take a pair of shoes that are not needed. She eventually refunded my money. Thank goodness.

Dobby found another pair, similar but with a far sturdier sole on them this time. I hope.

Other than that, it's been very slow. Sorry. I finally made it to the physio for my back yesterday morning. It's sore still now, but a few more treatments and it will be okay.

Oh, and we did go costume shopping Thursday night. Why? You'll have to wait until next blog! Sorry!

Sheesh, why can't they make anything that lasts these days?

So, a very quiet weekend for you then?

You sound like old Lady Grantham on Downton Abbey! She asked 'what's a weekend?', but only because she's never worked a day in her life! Love Rat
