Week in Review 22-28 June 2015

Wow it's been a long time since I have done one of these posts! In fact since I've done any blog post!! I had a temping job that was originally for 4 weeks which was then extended to 6 weeks and was an hours drive each way. This meant that I was too knackered to do anything at all other than eat, shower and sleep :).  Although I enjoyed working there and the people were lovely, I am glad that I never have to do the 65 mile round trip again!

Back to my week in review, it started off well and I had some plans on what I hoped to do that week but then they got buggered up towards the end when my Mum phoned on Thursday to tell me that Louis had became unwell and that it didn't look good.  I then had to make the horrible decision to have him put to sleep. :(

I was all set for a lie in on Monday morning since I no longer had to get up at 545am but Ben had other ideas and decided to meow like a foghorn.  In my face.  At 515am. Obviously this racket woke me up to the point I could not get back to sleep again! This pic certainly describes Ben!!

After my early morning cat alarm call I decided to get up and change my living room decor from Spring  to Summer.  Now you may think that I am sad for doing this (my Mum will totally agree with you as she has told me that herself!) but I like to change my decor every season as it stops me from getting bored of the same look all year round.  The green is gone and replaced with plum/purple accessories that I put out for Summer.

Tuesday was the day we had our follow up appointment at the IVF clinic so we will be trying again either later on this year/start of next year as I start a new job this week and I'm not sure how soon I can book holidays and I will need to accrue some time off too.

Thursday morning my Mum called me to say that Louis hadn't eaten anything overnight, was really floppy and was wheezing.  My Dad had taken him to the vet where Louis got two injections, an antibiotic and an anti-inflammatory and was told to bring him back the next day.  He already had an appointment booked in for the Friday anyway as he had to get his front teeth drilled down every four weeks as they would grow too long.  I went round to their house and could see that he was wobbling around and wheezing, although he perked up when he saw me I knew that he wasn't going to get any better and keeping him going another day would be for my benefit and not his.  The thought of him struggling for breath or having a seizure through the night upset me so much and I felt that the kindest thing to do would be to let him go.  I booked the appointment for later on that afternoon.

I wasn't particularly in the mood to do anything for the rest of the week as I just felt miserable  although I knew that one day he would no longer be here, he was ten years old after all, it still comes as a shock.  

Have you ever had to make the decision to have your pet put to sleep?

Please bear with me!

Just a quick note to say that I am still on Planet Earth but I've just had no time to blog lately.  This should change in the next couple of weeks so please bear with me :)! First of all I was busy with IVF appointments, acupuncture appointments and then taking it easy as I was quite uncomfortable after the egg collection.  IVF No 4 was unsuccessful :(.  Also I have been temping at a job that is a 65 mile round trip so I am travelling an hour there and then an hour back a day plus a 40 hour week which has meant that poor little me has no life and I'm so exhausted that I come home, make dinner, eat it, shower and go to bed before waking up after a few hours sleep to do it all again the next day.  The picture of the cat above is how I currently feel!  I should be finished working there today but they need me to stay on a couple of more weeks, so I think they must like me!! :)

So hopefully things will go back to normal once I finish there in a couple of weeks so I can get back into blogging, I haven't even had time to read your blogs or check out Twitter so please don't think I am ignoring you all!  Catch up with you all soon :) xx
