Throbbing Like A Porn Star's *€+!

I am on a hefty dose of flucloxacillin which has played havoc with my digestion.
Thankfully this morning my septic thumb is responding to the therapy and has ceased to throb with the intensity it did yesterday, even though it does resemble a  large Victoria plum.
I aim to go back to the hospital later for a dressing change, but only after corralling Irene , who will be going to pastures new today if we can catch her.
I've conscripted a somewhat eclectic band of helpers. Village elder Islwyn, chicken keeper Eirlys and sailor John amongst others said they will be available but I am dubious that we will be successful ......
Watch this space.
The cottage is quiet today. William and Mary went to kennels yesterday so only Winnie and George are home and in these warm spring days they only have the energy to snooze and fart.
Albert is out hunting baby rabbits
Tomorrow I fly to The Irish republic to stay with Nuala for a few days. She has a cottage there, out in the sticks and it's her birthday.

It will be good to see her.

  5. Well Alan single-handedly had Ethel on her back, legs akimbo for a pedicure yesterday, so hopefully between the six of us Irene should be caught ... eventually. But with your thumb and my current limp it will be fun 😉

    A few days with Nuala sounds like just the tonic you need, hope you have fun ☺

  6. Oh, perhaps we should point out for the uninitiated... Ethel and Irene are sheep 😆🤣😁

  8. The perfect time for a break with your BFF John ...... what would we do without our friends?
    I think that someone should video the ‘ catching of Irene ‘ .... it has the potential to go viral 🤣😂🤣😂 XXXX

  9. I find myself wondering about your experience with porn star's throbbing bits.
    Have a wonderful weekend with Nuala.

  10. A complete change of scenery with a damn good friend sounds like the ideal tonic, John. I just hope your blessed thumb responds to the ABs and gives no further trouble. Hoping Irene is caught and transported to her new home without causing any further injuries - and that she and Ethel live tranquil lives together for ever. (You can only hope.)

  14. A cottage in Ireland sounds so wonderful. Yes, please, to someone's suggestion that you record the wrangling of Irene. Can't antibiotics be brutal on your guts?!? -Jenn

  33. Glad the meds are helping so take care.

  34. Glad to hear your thumb is getting better. Good luck catching Irene. I sense an opportunity for plenty of sheep jokes here! Are there not any sheep herding pigs available to help with the round up?

    Can't resist, must tell sheep jokes:

    Kilts
    Why do Scotsmen wear kilts?
    Because sheep can hear zippers.

    Welsh name
    A sheep farmer and his wife were driving around Wales, looking for good collie pups to bring back to England to raise, train, and sell. At one point they entered a small town with a typically Welsh name, with lots of consonants and very few vowels. They began to argue over how it should be pronounced, but couldn’t agree.

    After a few minutes they decided to stop for coffee and something to eat. As the waitress brought their orders to the table, the sheep farmer said to her, “My wife and I can’t agree over how to pronounce the name of this place. Could you please tell us how it should be pronounced?”

    The waitress put her tray down and said very slowly, “M … c … D … o … n … a … l … d … s …”


    Have a safe and wonderful trip, John! See ewe later!

  35. How lovely to be going to see your friend.I may be wrong but I've heard that taking a probotic after a course of antibiotics helps to settle your tummy x
