#WeekendCoffeeShare 30/5/2015

I’m a bit late for this weekends coffee share. But as it’s a Bank Holiday Monday here I’m still counting today as the weekend! If we were catching up over a cup of coffee or other beverage, I would tell you all about my busy week.

Milly’s allergies weren’t getting any better after her bath. So on Tuesday evening I took her to the vets. The vet was lovely, very thorough and checked Milly all over to check that she didn’t have any infections in the skin that was sore on her paws and round her eyes. Luckily she didn’t and luckily they have a different antiinflammatory drug for us to try (and it seems to be working!) I’m so pleased I took her to the vets. I mainly wanted to check we were doing everything we could for her. I didn’t expect to get any medicine but was so happy that we could get her some.

On Wednesday I went to my Pilates class. I have been neglecting it recently, but I know it’s good for me, good for my back and my mental health. We were using giant fit balls and was a lot of fun. I really worked my abs, which hurt everything I laugh! Thursday night I spent 3 hours at the hairdressers. Having my hair ombréd blonder at the ends and a bit of brunette blending at the roots. My hairdresser is so lovely and spent a lot of extra time making sure I was happy with it.

This week has been crazy busy at work. But I don’t really want to talk about it. All you need to know is that everything that needed to be done got done and I survived. I had some tears, okay quite a lot of tears and felt exhausted but it’s done. So, I’ll refresh your cup and then we’ll move on to my lovely weekend.

Milly's guide to happiness Greenwich London

This weekend, me and my partner went to visit some friends in London (Milly is having a mini holiday at my parents). The boys went on a brewery tour in Greenwich so us girls had a little look round Greenwich Market and a few shops. We the. Went to the park and up the hill by the Observatory for some great views of the London skyline. The rest of the weekend mainly revolved round good food, good drink, lots of laughs and chatting.


Let me know what you think

    Pleased to hear that the new drugs are working for Milly. Let’s hope that it soon clears up completely. I used to live very near Greenwich (Rotherhithe) for a lot of my life in London. We loved the view from the Observatory, and spent many happy hours wandering around the area. (Preferably out of the tourist season though!)
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Thanks Pete. They do seem to be working and I hope they keep working! I had a lovely weekend in London and had a nice time wandering around Greenwich and along the Thames. Nice to escape back to lovely Norfolk though 😀

    Glad you had a nice week/end. Sorry about Milly’s allergies – just what is it with dogs and allergies?! We have done everything from steroids to changing diets for our wee one, and nothing seems to be working yet. I did notice the heat makes it worse though. Anyway, hopefully this week won’t be quite as busy for you. 🙂

      Hello, thanks for your comment. Milly was tested last year and she’s pretty much allergic to everything – grass, weeds, trees, fungi! And she loves being outside. I thought the only thing that the vets would be able to give us would be steroids, which I didn’t want as she’s still young and got lots of side effects, so was really pleased about the different medicine. Have you had your dog allergy tested? Hope you’ve had a good week? Yes, fingers crossed this week will be quieter and less frantic 😀

        No, she hasn’t been allergy tested….her mum had lots of skin issues so I’m assuming its genetic. Plus she gets yeasty ears and paws which we bath often with Neem soap – have you tried that? Its brilliant for the pups skin and totally natural. I’m not happy about steroids either, because they bring their own problems. But I will look into the testing for sure – I didn’t know such a thing existed, ha!

          The testing was expensive and ultimately wasn’t too successful for us as she is allergic to everything! But if it was one of two things then it might help you avoid certain things.

            Thank you for that. I do really feel though, that we as a society are causing a lot of these allergies, I mean…children for example, in the old days didn’t suffer half as much as they do now, and the same with dogs. As much as I would like to ease the irritants for our pets, I do wish we didn’t have to keep medicating them against a poisonous world. (gosh that sounded quite melodramatic, didn’t it? Sorry about that!)
