Roman and I both had a nasty experience today. Mine came first…

Late morning, the doorbell rang. I have been expecting a delivery of coffee pods, so became excited at the thought of a delicious cup of java. Disappointingly, there was no coffee-delivery at the front door. Instead, it was a district nurse. She hsd returned, following a visit earlier in the week, to remove stitches from my leg, after the surgery I had two weeks ago. So, not only was she NOT coffee, but she had turned up to inflict pain upon me. Not cool!

I wasn’t the only one to suffer today. As I have mentioned, this morning, today is Roman’s birthday. Without considering the date, at the time of making the appointment, we had booked him into the vets to have a vaccination booster injection, as well has getting his nails done. He’s such a tart!

As I am still recovering from my operation (did I mention I’ve had surgery?), I stayed at home and left Claire and my dad to take our furry cherub for his treatment. By all accounts, he didn’t seem to notice the jab, in his back. What he did object to – very predictably – was the nail treatment…

OK, I know Roman has no bollocks (literally!), but even he hasn’t resorted to pedicures and nail extensions. The nails on his toes, were getting fairly long, so we thought that he would benefit from having them cut. One of the downfalls of being a pampered house bunny. Had we kept him outside, in a hutch, exposed to all elements and local predators; he would have toughened up and kept his nails trim – either by running around on hard ground (as opposed to a carpet), or by scratching the eyes of cats, foxes and owls, trying to eat him. It’s the price he pays for being spoilt!

Finally, it wasn’t JUST us two boys, to have a nasty day. The lady of the manor – my lovely wife, Claire – had a painful accident herself. Quite possibly worse than what her hubby and bunny had to put up with! She sliced her finger with a knife, while cutting tomatoes. Luckily, there was no need to visit A&E, and besides the pain and blood, the only other outcome from the injury was a lot of swearing and use of plasters.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
