Well and truly settled into the January blues now – on the bright side it’s almost February, I am struggling to find something to look forward to, everything seems so bleak, I know there is an end and there are many people worse off than we are, we have food on the table, good jobs, can’t say good health though. I think that may be the root of the problem at the moment, I am just so tired all of the time. I still have a few days to wait to get the results of bloods and x-rays. I finished a 2 week course of anti inflammatories from the doctor a couple of days ago and the joint pain has gone from annoying to really painful again, I can’t sit at work for longer than 45 mins before my hips feel like they are going to explode, my hands are looking gnarled now and my fingers don’t like to type or use the mouse. I work for an excellent company and I know that I will get all the support I need if things get worse, I have worked for them for 13 years now and am lucky that I have the ability to work from home as and when I need to.
We still haven’t signed the paperwork from Creditfix and they haven’t answered our questions yet. We have taken it on ourselves to complete and send in a new I&E expenditure form to show the shortfall now Mr Ruby has a new job. There isn’t a lot of difference as we save over £90 now Mr. Ruby doesn’t have the commute. We have kept copies of all the communication sent in and will amend our standing order to the lower amount in readiness for our next payment. I am assuming that there will be no response to this communication.
An update as well on the recently poorly but very naughty ruby dog, he is finally back to normal (he will never be normal) with no lasting damage. The specialist vets in Newmarket that he spent a few days at called us recently to say that the samples sent off to America came back positive to show he was developing acquired Fanconi Syndrome. They are now preparing a press release for the Veterinary Times to warn other vets. Shame we can’t ask for royalties!
On the plus side though, nothing new has broken and nothing else has been added to the ‘needs repairing’ list so far this year!
