Waaaah! Believe it or not, this outfit makes Dulcie really happy. It gets pulled out of the dirty washing basket at least three times daily. But this is just how she was feeling all of last week. She's still coughing and spluttering, but seems otherwise back to her old self - a bit less clingy and able to demonstrate the pleasure she finds in things once again.
This was as close as we got to a smile that day. I could tell she was enjoying herself at the park (partly because of how much she screamed - Jesus H Christ - when I put her back in the pram to leave) but we got lots of comments from strangers about how nonplussed she looked.
Hardly surprising when you see this photo demonstrating her absolute joy on the swing...
She may look cute, but she's a brute. (She's not really - that's just one for the Reeves and Mortimer fans.)
Flying solo with a poorly little mum limpet all week was hard work, but I still made sure to savour all the extra cuddles she forced on me. Ah, I do so love this little blighter, but hopefully this week she'll at least give me enough space to do things like eat and go to the toilet!
