Difficult Decisions

Hello Everybody

Feeling sad today as we have had to have Derek ,our Cat, put to sleep. Last night he began gagging and we presumed he had a fur ball, this morning he was still doing the same so we took him to the vets to be checked over. The vet anaesthetised him and found he had a large, very unusual tumour connecting his soft pallete and hard pallete. It would not have been possible to operate and although he could have had chemotherapy the outlook was not good for him. We decided it was kinder to put him to sleep now as he would have had a poor quality of life while being treated and the longterm prognosis was poor.

Aidan of course does not understand and keeps asking where he is, it's so hard to try to explain to a 2.5 year old. For the moment we are saying he is poorly and has gone to live with pap, who passed away last November, who will take care of him.

So that was our hard decision to make, I hope you are all having a weekend free from tough choices x x

I have been reading "Meet me at the Cupcake cafe"by Jenny Colgan
Heres the blurb:

"Issy Randall can bake. No, more than that - Issy can create stunning, mouth-wateringly divine cakes. After a childhood spent in her beloved Grampa Joe's bakery she has undoubtedly inherited his talent. So when she's made redundant from her safe but dull City job, Issy decides to seize the moment and open up her own cafe. It should be a piece of cake, right? Wrong. As her friends point out, she has trouble remembering where she left her house keys, let alone trying to run her own business. But Issy is determined. Armed with recipes posted to her from Grampa, and with her local bank manager fighting her corner, Issy attempts to prove everyone wrong"

I really enjoyed the book all the way through, every spare moment I had I would pick it up and read a bit even if just a few pages. The character was believeable and you could easily relate to her, she is made redundant which is something I am experiencing at the moment. The writing style was easy going and flowed nicely, enjoyable at the end of a hard day.
Then I got to the end and have to say I was very disappointed. It seemed to just end.

Don't you hate it when that happens?

Epic Mummy Fail!!!

A poster went up at Aidan's Nursery advising that on Friday they would be having a Pyjama day to raise funds for a Childrens brain injury charity. This morning I dressed Aidan in fresh, clean PJs and he happily walked to Nursery with his Daddy. Upon arriving at Nursery, Aidan and Daddy discovered that Pyjama day is in fact NEXT Friday!

TGI Friday!!!
