Down but for the animals

I will keep this brief as I don’t want this blog to be full of woe and i’ll just write this post as a means to explain my absence. I’ve been off work since October 2014 due to a massive Flare but without warning work sent me my P45 (terminated my contract). I was devastated as I spent many years building my strength so that I would be able to work and for three years I had managed to do so (even if only part-time) but now I have had to go back on state assistance and I hate it! I’m still unable to work so I feel completely useless. Crafting is my cling-to activity when I’m flaring as it’s a good distraction from the pain and I can do some form of it even when I’m in pain but its been so bad recently that I have only just this week-end been able to complete small projects. Despite being unable to craft the one or (three things) I have through the dark days and sunny nights are my animals. They always watch over me and Keats (my dog) is especially good at stroking my hair and head when I can’t sleep for the pain (he literally does that). So here is to the animals!

Number 1 on The modern Girl’s Guide is get yourself something cute and furry (even if it’s just a cuddly toy).

These are my fur babies:

    Bless your heart. I remember when i first got to that point. It was so difficult. I had a cat back then. Her name was Socks. She was my buddy, and my helper. I still miss her so much. One day, while on the floor unable to arise for several days and night, she brought me a bird so i would have something to eat. I knew that day that she was taking care of me while I could no longer take care of her or myself. I was forced to give her to a others.

    I’m sorry to say, she refused to eat when I had to do that. She finally wasted away, and I did not know until she was gone. If I had known I would have reclaimed her and we could have been together through everything. sigh. Thanks for the memory. Hopefully, in my new home I shall be allowed to have another friend such as socks.

    Hugs from a distance. Hang in there girl. You are doing okay in spite of everything.

      That is such a touching and ultimately sad story about Socks. She sounds amazing so here’s to Socks and all the unsung animal heroes xx And finger’s crossed for your new home. Much love x

    Sorry about the job but they obviously didn’t deserve you, hopefully you have much better things on the horizon! Your pets are absolutely adorable, and great name choices – if I had a dog like Keats they’d get away with murder x

      Yes, Keats does get away with murder. He can get anything he wants with one look into his eyes. Thank you for your kind words regarding my job. I certainly hope that better things will come, I will just have to see this as an opportunity for something new. x
