It's been far too long since I last blogged, I'll fill you in on the details in a minute, but first the card.
I rustled up this very quick little card (4x4) using the Hunkydory "Happy Birthday Sausage" stamp set. I stamped all the elements seperately before colouring in the dog with my zig clean colour pens. I used a spectrum noir sparkle pen for the blue and then cut out all the elements and glued them into place. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set onto the card and drew in a frame, which I coloured to match the scarf. Super quick and simple.
So, the tooth saga continues. Having settled down over the weekend, by Tuesday morning it was aching again, typically on the first day of real snow that we had. I phoned the dental helpline from work and was told that there were no appointments available in my town. Happily though, there was one that morning at a Dentist only a two minute walk from work! He decided that he needed to drill deeper than the previous dentist had done to put in some medicine to calm the nerve. It took three lots of local anaesthetic to numb the tooth, no wonder I felt woozy afterwards! I also ended up with a course of oral antibiotics. It's still quite sore, but the (very lovely) dentist warned me it would take a few days to calm down. I have to apologise for being behind on my visits, toothache and neck ache has taken its toll, but I hope to catch up with you all soon.
By Wednesday, our snow had mostly melted, despite it being -6 degrees out (no idea how that works?!) and so I took Willow to meet Oscar who will hopefully become her new companion. Oscar was handed into rescue by a lady who borrowed a male bunny to breed her rabbit. Unfortunately, when the babies were just a few days old mummy bunny died. The lady hand reared the babies and gave most of them away, but kept Oscar and his sister. Unfortunately, she seems to have just done the absolute minimum to look after them and so at 18 months old they are not used to human interaction and consequently are very scared and hutch defensive. Oscar also seems to have a congenital cataract in one eye, which is slightly smaller than his other eye. You'll be pleased to know that his sister has now found a wonderful new home and hopefully Oscar will be happy with us, I know you're dying to meet him so here is the handsome chap,
He's a bit bigger than Willow at 1.5kg, but he is (mostly) a Netherland Dwarf. Despite being fearful, once held he enjoys a good fuss and has gorgeous soft, silky fur. I'm not sure he'll be keeping the name Oscar though, anyne got any suggestions for a plant/tree/herb related names? Apparently, so far they are getting on well *crosses fingers for luck*
I hope you are all managing to stay safe and warm in this freezing weather x
