I’m apparently pretty ill at the moment, my head is a huge mess.
My partner had just managed to persuade me that we did, in fact, need to go to the GP and begin the nightmare process of accessing MH services again, only to find out my GP has left the surgery. She was the only professional in this area that treated us with respect, took us seriously, and fought for help and support. One out of nine.
I don’t know what we’re doing now. I keep hiding behind the ‘I’m fine’ mask, but my partner is getting more forceful that we *need* help, be it from the GP or going to hospital. I am fighting valiantly. Days are a confusing mess.
Good news though, we did find an awesome birthday present for Zoey!
I wasn’t actually planning to buy her an antler, as I asked my parents to buy me two XL Stagbars for my birthday that I could give to Kasper and Zoey.
But then I was rooting in a local pet shop a few days ago, and this pet shop is weird…all the dog toys are a mess and stuffed into a 3-tier basket together, hundreds of them. There’s no order and some of them are old, faded and covered in dust, whilst others are new designs.
Sometimes the toys are way overpriced, but other times you find a hidden gem like this – £12 for a foot-long antler!
We also found a cool Nylabone-type chew bone for Raiden that has a channel in the middle you can fill with something soft (eg. peanut butter, cottage cheese etc) and freeze it!!
As well as that Zoey will also have a Kong Wobbler, and of a giant Octopus and treats for her birthday 🙂
I also saw something I reeeaaally want for my birthday. Over on The Rufus Way they shared an etsy shop with the most beautiful lead I’ve ever seen…I have a thing for blue skies, and clouds, and hot air balloons…so this lead fills me with joy!
Unfortunately it’s so nice I wouldn’t want to let it get muddy, and we really only use leads that have multiple D clips or are 8ft+ long…but I want it so bad! I would hang it on my wall and just stare at it all day 😛
My partner’s getting me some awesome things for my birthday though, I’m really excited. It should be a lovely!
He’s getting us both tattoos (his first!), and I was going to get a flight cage full of different species of finches, but now we’re looking into adopting two male degus which would be incredibly exciting…degus are one of the few pet rodents we’ve never had!
And my parents are coming up to stay that weekend, which will be fun. We’re planning a trip to the petting farm…yes, we are that cool 😉
Two weeks until mine and Zoey’s birthdays!!
