rage against the dying of the light

Friday lunchtime pub visits with clients who are almost-friends slay me. Two pints of cider and I am making inappropriate jokes and saying 'f*ck' with impunity.

B arrived home this morning at ten after a night out in Manchester, under pain of death not to be late, in order to take Simpkin to the vet for further investigations about his swollen paws. The vet told me off for not taking him last week, just after his antibiotics finished.

His paws aren't really any better - she gave him a long-lasting steroid injection and charged me £24.10. I've got to take him back in a fortnight.

B has had three hours sleep and has just flaked out on the sofa beside me. He has glitter all over his chin, presumably from passing out face-down in someone's car on the way home from the club at four this morning.

Raging against the dying of the light comes less easy in your mid-thirties.

I am going to make a cup of tea and have a snooze.

  3. Sparkles on his chin? You should've taken pictures for blackmail at a later date.

  6. have you changed simpkin's food? Or have the manufacturers changed their ingredients? A friend of ours dog got itchy swollen feet because of a wheat allergy because she was eating the wrong kind of complete food.
