Wilberforce in the Wars

 Poor old Wilberforce is not a happy bunny, he has been wearing this buster collar for almost two weeks because of eye problems.  The vet is not sure if it is an infection or he has hay fever.  He is taking antibiotics and eye drops and having his eyes bathed twice a day but he keeps rubbing the area until it bleeds so he has to wear the buster collar until it clears up.
 Higgins is keeping well, here he is reclining on his favourite sofa...
I have been busy, as usual with my crafts.  I signed up for a patchwork quilt course and have almost finished the first four squares, have a big piece of cross stitch on the go which I haven't photographed yet and have finished another crochet blanket for our local dog shelter.

I love Wagamama and used to go there once a week.  I don't get into the city much these days so I bought a copy of their recipe books and thought I would try recreating them at home.
We tried the Chicken cilli men yesterday. I am not much of a cook, in fact I am pretty rubbish but with John's help in preparartion it actually tasted really good. Want to try a few more from here now.


  1. Poor dog....i hope he feel beter soon.!

  2. You sure don't look very happy, Wilberforce!
    Your mom's crochet blankie is just beautiful! We love the bones and the paws!

    Love ya lots♥

  3. Poor Wilberforce. That does look sore. I must look up Wagamama as I haven't heard about it before. You are an Angel making blankets for the dog shelter. I look forward to seeing your Patchwork quilt. Wishing Wilberforce a speedy recovery. Marion x

  4. Wow! Your crocheted dog blanket is gorgeous, Shirley--I'll bet all the dogs will be fighting over it at the shelter :)

    Sure hope Wilberforce gets that nasty collar off very soon!
