A short post tonight because I'm off to book club (soooo suburban darling!). I haven't read the book, in fact I have no idea what it was! I have read the one for the time before though, which is no use whatsoever, but I forgot to go that month. I blame blogging for my sudden disorganisation.
Tonight was 'pamper night' for the bunnies. One Brazilian (Please click here if you are confused about waxing bunnies and missed the last instalment) and a two manicures booked in for 5.15. As the day went, this was probably the highlight. For a start catching the little buggers is never that easy, they always seem to know where they're going! However, that done, we arrived on time and were called in to the consultation room straight away. The vet relieved me of both bunnies, saying the nurse would help perform the task (I was relieved I didn't have to help!) and ushered me towards the door. 'I'll be about 15 minutes' she said.
'Oh that's OK', I replied 'I'll sit and read a magazine'. How nice to have a sit down and a browse through a 'glossy', I wouldn't normally do that at this time of day.
So, off I went back into the waiting room and headed for the pile of magazines in the corner. I picked up the top copy, and sat myself down, bliss, a whole 15 minutes to myself with....... ''Your Dog'' magazine?!! I should have guessed really I suppose, after all, I was at the vets.
For those of you who have never come across this little gem, 'Your Dog'' is full of very useful information, if you have a dog, and lots of pretty pictures of pups. There was an article about 'why your dog eats animal feces', and a problem page for distraught owners of distressed pets. One problem in particular caught my eye; one worried owner had written about her poor springer spaniel who had a compulsion to lick patio slabs and chase his own shadow!! Problem, what problem?! It crossed my mind that this would be a good party trick. Hey, there you go, that's the awful sort of human being I am.
It was such a relief when she brought the bunnies back! I couldn't wait to get home before I was tempted to pick up another issue. 15 minutes with ''Your Dog'' magazine is enough for any woman, I can tell you and it did strike me that the whole episode may have been penance for the Saturday night incident!!
Bunnies are safely tucked in now and I'm off! See you tomorrow.
