A week full of utter madness

It's been a week of utter madness, one way or another. Here's Buddy, who as the result of a disagreement with another cat had to have a 2 night sleep over at the vets while they took care of an abscess. Apparently it is a very common occurrence, that cats suffer abscesses, and they are either on their faces or the backsides, (as they fight or retreat). Poor old Buddy looked like Mr Pumpkin head, but thankfully he's back to normal now except for the shaved face look and a pile of antibiotics.

I also made a REAL sensible purchase this week, yep you've guessed it right, wool, needles and a free sock pattern which I thought was a no-brainer! However, on further investigating the sock pattern looks like something from a Japanese novel! LOL I think it will take longer to knit a pair of socks than it will to make bed quilts for the entire house! I'm positively mad!
Hope you've all had a great weekend!

Poor Buddy! I know he'll be better soon. Thank you for the goodies...I got them yesterday! You know me well!

Wool and needles would never be a sensible purchase for me-- I dislike washing and pairing up socks, so I can't see myself laboring to knit them! ha! Good luck on your pattern.

Oh dear, poor Buddy! We have had experience over the years with our cats and vets, I can sympathise. Keep us informed on the socks, I have pattern, yarn and needles too but haven't started.

Poor Buddy! Vet trips are not fun!
The socks are easy to do and will be much quicker than making a quilt! Look forward to seeing them finished.

Awww, poor Buddy.... I just found your blog through a comment you left on My Romantic Home - your black kitties caught my eye! Our Spotty is sporting 14 staples right now after having a large tumor removed, so he sympathizes with your Buddy... Very sorry about your handsome sheep, too... I hope he has an endless supply of bread and peanut treats. Must say I'm also a huge fan of Colin Firth! ha ha... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage
