Where a day of "chillin" and relaxing does not end so well!
Today was all planned -a quick visit to Tesco's (think petrol fill up and AAA batteries for my travel fan) and then a really relaxing morning at the hairdressers where I was pampered from head to toe - literally. A hairdo and colour, a manicure and a pedicure - the three hours parking ticket was only JUST enough - with 3 minutes to spare!
Back home and, after a quick lunch, thoughts turned to really getting going with the packing - at last! As I was going from one room to another, Millie started to follow me and I noticed a bald patch on her hind leg. She had been licking herself a lot yesterday and I might have left it - but didn't want the housesitter to have any problems so made a quick call to the vets who had an appointment at 4pm. So off we went. Well - you really have to know and love Millie to appreciate how much of a pain she is at the vets. Seriously - we had to corner her to let the vet have a look, hold her down to shave her and then two nurses took over whilst the vet checked her anal glands. After all of that I have come home with flea treatment (just in case - they couldn't find any), antibiotics, steroids and a collar if she doesn't stop licking herself - the housesitter is going to have fun! Thankfully they don't think that its anything serious - but, as I speak, Millie is flat out asleep after all of that exertion and stress!
Meanwhile, of course, the packing still hasn't been started - and I leave in just over 24 hours - yikes!
