So where was I? Just off to Sainsbury's. Nearly finished my shop, when Mike called to see where I was (!) and he'd just got home. He was playing with Taffy, who was very excited to see him. He threw the ball and Taffy ran after it. Then Mike tells me, 'He's gone down - there's blood everywhere!' I couldn't wait to get home. £120 later - Taffy had ripped a claw completely out of his back paw. The vet dressed it and gave him pain relief. He now has a big red bandage on his back leg. In himself he's fine - for the interest of his fans and well wishers. Meanwhile, Mike's car is going to cost him £550 for a new alternator. (Don't ask me!) The car is 2 months out of its warranty. Typical huh? Just another ordinary day. . .
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
