Another Day in the Ivy Chronicles

The beautiful yellow rose that is growing in Jo's garden. I may be becoming very boring by now, but I am still working on the fence. It is so difficult! I have one more panel to go, and put like that it doesn't sound much. But, the panel I did today took me all day. It was very reluctant to come out-after unscrewing it (the easy bit-especially since whoever put it there in the first place didn't put many screws in to hold it up. They must have foreseen the ivy!) I prised it with my beautifully strong Spear and Jackson spade. I kicked it, feeling like some kind of Ninja-until my foot went through! I sawed it, pulled and pushed it, banged it against the tree stump several times to (hopefully) dislodge most of the spiders. I packed it, wrapped it, and drove it to the tip. I drive along in fear of a big spider creeping over my shoulder. I carry the spider hoover with me just in case! I am having a break from it tomorrow and going out for the day with my Mum-hurrah!

Cassie went to the vet's this morning. We were in there about three minutes-her lump is just the stitches in the muscle layer and nothing to worry about. Phew! Here she is looking particularly silly with her large ear turned inside out by washing. I had to turn it back for her after taking the photos!

Good for you and all you accomplished with that fence and ivy project. Those kind of jobs always tend to dump things down your neck that crawl or itch. Good luck on coming to a finish in the near future.

Glad Cassie's vet trip wasn't too traumatic. Hehe on her backwards ear photo.

Glad to hear that Cassie is ok, she is a lot like my Tabby cat, even with that ear.

Well done with the Ivy, what a job you will be pleased when it is over.

Beautiful rose, so looking forward to mine coming out.

Glad Cassie is ok! Where are the local vandals when you need a fence kicked down!! Malcolm didn't watch the football - he couldn't bear the agony! We watched an episode of Spartacus, which we have been recording ..... lots of blood and guts .... and very fit young men with no clothes on!!!!

pleased the lump is nothing sinister.


ivy looks so nice, and is SO terrible for the garden. shame. I remember when you helped me with my garden after i came to terms with my weedy upper body strength.

Glad to hear that Cassie is fit and healthy. I like her new look!
You're very enterprising, tackling the fencing project yourself. It seems simple enough when you think about it but the execution proves otherwise. I hope it all goes smoothly and quickly from now on.

Ha ha! Ours do that with the ears too, but I never have the camera there in time.

You have to see the tiny little squirrel that's visiting us every day now. I've called him "Stompin Tom" because his feet are massive!
