So the door came off in my daughters hands…it literally came off it’s hinges….and could I find a decent screwdriver anywhere?
I found a broken screwdriver, some glue that had hardened in the tube and 3 wonky nails….I did the best I could though, and with the aid of a piece of cutlery, a lot of huffing and puffing later, in my own cack-handed way I actually managed to get the door back on…and it now actually opens and closes. Hoorah!
Who needs a man around the house to do these things? My house may be stuck together with spit and wonky nails, but at least it’s still standing. Just about.
On another note, I just found out my baby Bella (to those unacquainted with Bella, she is my yorkshire terrier) has a lump growing beneath the skin of her abdomen. I’m going to try to get her an appointment at the vets tomorrow. I know some people berate crazy animal lovers like me (and do you think I care?), but she is like another child to me and I’m extremely concerned about her.
The good news is that she is the same grumpy, off the wall, wacky mutt as ever, but this hard round lump that moves about under her skin when I have examined it, is about the size of a grape and it has me worried. Especially as it appeared so suddenly. It could be a cyst or something, but as I’m prone to thinking pesimistically about anything vaguely serious and possibly life threatening, I’m thinking this could be the last Christmas I have with my Bella. I know. I know. I could never be a nurse, I’d be measuring people up for their coffins at the merest sniffle…
I’m asking St. Francis’ intercession on this one and if you too could spare a prayer to ask his intercession for Bella, I’d very much appreciate it. Thanks!
