summary

Today, I have:

  • Made six jars of marmalade
  • Put off killing two deformed chicks until tomorrow
  • Been given a Cotoneaster
  • Squeezed pus from a cat's head*
  • Hurt my mother's feelings by telling her that if she was a species of poultry, her parenting skills would make her a guinea fowl
  • Helped my father wee in to an empty coffee jar in his wheelchair in a public car park
Tomorrow, we have an adoption meeting.

Ugh.


* Yet again. Vet tomorrow.

  5. The ups and downs of life can sometimes be too up and too down. Making marmalade sounds nice though. Take care.

  6. Wow, you know how to live! I hope the marmalade was sufficiently delicious to compensate. (PS I sent you an email a few days ago - would you mind confirming you received it? Am getting a bit neurotic after a string of non-replies from lots of different people.)

  11. Deformed how? Poor things! We have been lucky so far--the worst we've had to deal with was a turkey poult with an infected eye. Amazingly, we were able to get it to clear up, but we had honestly expected to lose him/her.

    I agree that marmalade sounds nice right about now. And congrats on your 500th!

  13. Deformed in that their legs are very splayed indeed. My own fault I think - I should have put some corrugated card on the bottom of the incubator so that they had something to grip on.

    HOWEVER, the good news is that today they are much better - they seem to be walking pretty normally. So I am going to see how they go on.

    I am trying to source some Marek's vaccine, now ...
