I just wanted to pop in & let you know that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth.
I haven't been in a very cheerful mood of late as my lovely dog, Lucy, has been very ill. She has had an infection of the liver which has caused fluid to build up in her liver, abdomen & lungs causing her to have some breathing difficulties & looking bloated. She has also not been eating which is always a worry. She has had blood tests & x-rays, a course of antibiotics, various injections & diuretics & is currently on 4 different medications. She spent the day at the vet's yesterday & had a course of treatments there. Her breathing seems a little improved today but I still haven't been able to tempt her to eat - not even the scrambled eggs I made her this morning.
It is apparently a fairly common illness in middle aged dogs (she is 11) & is treatable, but I won't be happy until she starts showing signs of improvement.
So, apologies for my lack of communication in the past few weeks. Hopefully regular service will be resumed soon!
My name is Jayne - I'm an avid collector of all things vintage. I live in a 1930's farm cottage at the end of a muddy lane.
I love my family, pets, horse riding, decorating, cooking, sewing, reading, gardening, car boot sales, auctions & fleamarkets.
I have a passion for vintage which has lead to me starting an online shop & becoming a vintage fair organiser which keeps me busy!
