Harley cats abscess

Hello!!

Not had a pet blog for a while so here we go. 

Harley came in a couple of weeks ago having been in a fight. I could
Tell as he was very tender when getting handled and hid all day. 

After checking him over I found he had been bitten in the back leg. I kept and eye on it for a few days and it all seemed to heal nicely. 

But last weekend I found a golf ball sized lump on his back leg where he had been bitten and I knew it was an abscess. So I got him to the vets. 

He got kept in during the day to have it lanced and when I went back to get him he had about and inch sized cut in his leg to leg the infection drain out 

The first day it annoyed the pooped out of him as it kept leaking down his leg and I assume tickling him. He wasn't allowed to lick it as cat saliva has a lot of bad bacteria and it can cause further infection. So I spent all night chasing him about with a pad to wipe it all up for him. 

For the first few days, he was on pain meds and I was cleaning it. 3 days in I started to put manuka honey on it (you all know I love a bit of manuka honey!) and it's now fully closed up with no infection in sight. Just a bald patch lol
Luckily we caught it in time. It could have been nasty and cost a lot more than the £133 we paid!!

Fairy Potion Glitter Bath (Messy Twitch Worthy Playtime)

Hello!!

On Holly's first day of Summer Holidays, I had to take a half day off work to look after her. See out YouTube video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkP-Nz0agUM!!

One of the activities I had for her was to make fairy potions. Basically, I put her in the bath with some water, food colouring and food glitter and let her make a mess lol



Here are some photos

The first spillage of glitter

All the food colouring and food glitter

Cleaning the utensils lol

A galaxy coloured mess!!

Yup playing in it now!! That's about right!



















I ended up having to run a bath for her with all that in it!! It was a well colourful bath and she was very glittery when she came out!!  

Since it was food colouring and edible glitter it all washed very easily and she had a blast!! Next might be painting in the bath.

While mums at work Bob will play day2

Hello!!

As I said in my first blog of Bob will play (http://workingmumy.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/while-mums-away-bob-will-play.html) holly had two days of train trips. This is her second. 

My uncle currently lives in Gullane which is a stone throw away from North Berwick, so my mum took her through on the train and she had a great time at the beach!!

Here she is on the train with juice and snacks. 

Having her bubblegum ice cream

Out on the sand with her spade and buckets. 

Sand castles

Yes, my mother let her out in the water with just her pants on!!!

She found a little hermit crab! Don't worry it was released safely. 

Teacup adventures 

Posing!!

On the train home

It's all been too much again

She loved the beach and it had a great bit of sea for kids that we walled off so that kids like Holly could go out where it was safe.

Do You Love Me...

The 4 most heartbreaking word your young child could possibly say to you, Do You Love Me...

Look at that photo, how could I possibly not!

Over the last month or so Holly has been asking this. I wouldn't say a lot, maybe a handful of times. The last time she asked was last night while she was in the toilet. 

I have no idea why she would start asking this. The only reason I can think of is, that her baby sister it due in the next month or so, and maybe this has started to have an effect on her. 

My behaviour towards Holly hasn't changed. In the beginning, when I was trying to get used to the tiredness again, yes I will admit I snapped a few times at her for the silliest of things. I then would feel extremely guilty and go back, say sorry, give her snuggles and let her sleep in my bed with me until my OH got in from work. 

But recently my lovely OH has been taking the brunt of my mood swings and I have been purposely trying not to take them out on Holly. 

I suppose the only thing o can really do is keep reassuring her that I still love her and always will. One thing I know I need to get my finger out with is playing with her more. 

I have struggled with this recently with being pregnant and working full time. However, I do only have 2 weeks left and I'm hoping that then when we have all day together I will find it much easier to entertain her and play with her more. 

Has anyone else had this problem?? Advice muchly appreciated as always :)

While Mums Away Bob Will Play

Hello!!

Since Holly doesn't really have a baby sitter as such anymore since she started nursery, so far these couple of weeks she has kind of been passed about the family doors. Last week was granny's turn (my mum) and she had a blast. 

My mum had her 4 days but 2 of them
Involved train journeys. 



Here is day 1!! 
Holly had a £60 Build A Bear voucher and my mum wanted to take her to Edinburgh. So here are some photos from that first time!!

Here she is excited for the "big choo choo"

On the bus to ocean terminal to Build A Bear

Having lunch, with her horse...pinky pie

Finally having a nap!

Here is what she got for Build A Bear. Out of the 1000s of choices she could have she picked, an ugly horse with pink sparkly shoes, roller skates and a cat or dog leash on, so it could be pulled along behind her it what she chose!! 
She also got me a Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon. :) 

Holly had a blast in Edinburgh on one of her days with her Gran.
