Got ya back!
And the other thing is MY BACK! I've had a back injury for a very long time that has seriously affected my mobility. I've been stuck on waiting lists to see various specialists for ridiculously long times (15 months in one case) but I finally had a diagnosis last week and had a proceedure to help fix it yesterday. I won't go into too many details as it's a bit gory but it involved three 6" long needles and at least a dozen smaller ones. I feel like a pin cushion. I'm still feeling a little worse for wear but initial signs are good. It'll be another 6 months or so before I'm fully functional but at least I have a target. I'm tucked up on the sofa in my jammies where I fully intend to stay all day. Cartwheels down the street are postponed until tomorrow.
The response to the video post was wonderful, thank you and I was delighted to see the Domestic Overlord and Turtlegirl also make use of their video cameras. Ripple's surprise appearance was hilarious. I loved hearing both of your voices and I do hope more of you have a go if you can. I really enjoyed doing it and intend to do more, but not for every post.
If Cassie conned you into thinking she is a sweet sleepy little puppy I can assure you she's not. I slept on the sofa last night as it's easier to prop myself up here until I can lie flat. I put her bed on the floor next to me. She woke me up FOUR times in the night just by staring at me. She's got such a dark little face that it was quite freaky to open my eyes to see her just looking at me. I've also lost count of the number of times I've had to come downstairs in the middle of the night to confiscate noisy toys - prime culprit being her frisbee and will whichever idiot thought it was a good idea to buy her a glow-in-the-dark ball please stand up.
I'm guessing my halo isn't fooling anybody.
