Yeah, I know none of the other grotts that live around here care if it's messy, but I hate the yucky feeling under my feet (I really prefer not to wear shoes indoors), and Clod's right about the nesting I guess. I just want to try and catch up on all the main chores so I don't have to worry too much for the first couple of weeks.

anyway, I'll get the big boys to put in an hour when they get home this arvy and that should help get things squared away enough. Then I just have to give them a bit of a chat about how they'll need to use a bit more initiative about about the chores for the next couple of months. I know they will. They're excellent boys. I'd be lost without them. Even Max is good at helping out and doing his bit. for example, we have a front loader washing machine, so it's low to the ground. Max is great at unloading and loading it up for me so I don't have to bend over for that long. Little helps like that make a big difference to those sorts of chores. I really am lucky to have such great kids.

Jackson tore a big strip off his $240 dog kennel...shithead!!

Its a heavy duty fabric one, which he loves diving into and rolling around like a numpty...so I assume he was throwing his big horse feet around and ripped a bit, then decided to tug-o-war it off.

He's laying in it not meeting my eye and looking innocently at the clouds, whilst I am scowling at him out the door.

That's nothing. Cleo is gradually chewing and breaking bits off her wooden dog kennel. She's a dumb dog. Boy is she going to cold next winter if she keeps it up. lol

Gradually rebuilding my software suite on my PC after a virus-lookalike-but-nothing-found-incident on it just before the weekend. Fortunately I had done a data back-up a couple of days before ...

Carrotchops is very lucky not to be beaten to death this morning.

I am about to go off to Leeds, which involves a 40 minute train journey. I always listen to my iphone on the train. Music, stories, podcasts. I never travel without my headphones.

Carrot has destroyed my headphones. Good and proper. And I wont have an opportunity to buy new ones til I am in Leeds.

Grrrrrrr. Major fucking grrrrrr.

I'm sorry about ur finger but you knew carrotchops was a dog when you took him in.

(variation of Native American story about a man who takes in an injured snake and nurses it back to health only to have the venomous snake bite him and when he asks how could the snake do that to him after all he's done for it, the snakes answers, "Hey, you knew I was a snake when you took me in!")

sorry, though, about your headphones. but I know you won't beat carrot to death. Maybe just introduce him to the concept of it.

Ha! Carrot doesn't respond well to anger. It is all just a game for him if i lose my temper :p

Today what is mildly irritating me is this:

I'm off to the docs in half an hour. May need antibiotics or...*deep breath* lancing with a sterile needle. Owww.

No lancing hurrah!

But I am back on fucking anti-biotics again. Godsdamnit.

This has been one of the longest spells of not needing antibiotics for my eczema for ages, and now this bastard has kicked in.

Grrrrr. Big grrrrr.

Is that eczma related? The pic is a bit blurry. Looks like something I'd lance at home myself with a rusty nail though. (almost serious there. Probs not a rusty nail, but I'd just get a pin or needle and do it myself. It wouldn't even hurt.)
