I'm feeling so much better this week, still easily tired, but so much better. Its a good thing too because Flash seems to be coming down with the Manflu, it's his turn to be looked after!
Frasier decided to grab a bit of the medical limelight for himself this week and had a tussle with a hedgehog! I was snuggling with him when I realized he had what i thought was a splinter in his mouth, then realized it was a hedgehog spike, a quick call to the vet who told me how to remove it (once he had finished laughing) as he didn't want Frasier going to see him unless there was a real problem (going to the vet causes Frasier so much stress we deal with a lot of stuff by phone). He has lots of little cuts on his front legs as well, obviously he saw the hedgehog ambling around and decided here was something he could finally catch ( he has only caught slugs and crickets before) and the hedgehog did what comes naturally and curled into a ball, coming off the winner in this battle! Thankfully NZ hedgehogs are pretty much clean, and don't carry fleas, Frasiers wounds have healed well.
If you read the interview with me in Entangled magazine, you will know that leaving my high stress social work job was a goal we as a family had set for early next year, well due to my illness that decision was brought forward and I resigned a few weeks ago, much to the relief of Flash, the kids and my parents who have long worried about my physical safety in that environment. I will miss my colleagues and some of my clients, but I will not miss the toxic culture of that public department.
This decision has opened new doors for me, and I look forward to sharing my new journey with you over the next few weeks!
