I went to find my brush to brush my hair this morning.
It was on the floor in my daughter's bedroom - full of cat fur!!!!
"But the cat was wet and we needed something to brush her with, it was an emergency."
I note that none of them thought the emergency warranted them using their own brushes to brush the cat.
Prelude to the story.
The poor old dog has fleas for the first time in his life (maybe the second time.) He is an inside dog predominately and we rarely have had any problems with these nasty little creatures. But the cat tends to wander and brought home fleas from the neighbour. I know exactly which neighbour because Tim works at bunnings and the neighbour didn't recognise tim and asked his assistance filling him in on the extent of his dogs flea infestation and the need to flea bomb their house.
So poor old pablo somehow managed to dislodge his flea collar and now has terrible flea bites on the inside of his legs which are driving him crazy. Tim bought some flea shampoo and gave him a bath and the kids decided that the cat was in need of a bath too.
2 weeks to go till we fly out... trying to find some "smart casual" travel clothing for tim, not as easy as it sounds.
Plus how much do I need to pack??? 7 weeks away. I've got a pair of jeans, a pair of thick pull on black stretchy pants for on the plane, 3 tunic style tops that go with leggings and my boots or my pants/jeans and clog style slip on shoes. A black wrap dress and a black skirt. A pair of sneakers disguised as a pair of mary janes, a couple of light cardigans and a thin plain black wollen jumper, long sleve thermals and several scarves and wooly hats. Oh and several pairs of black tights. Oh and a weatherproof black jacket.
How does that sound?
