What Oscar did....


Naughty Oscar.... Posted by Hello

He poked me in the eye yesterday and this is what I woke up with...he's really grabby at the moment - he has what DH calls "Ninja death claws"...he loves to grab handfuls of skin, hair - anything....and yesterday it was my eyelid.

It's really sore and weepy...I'm off to the doctor's in a few minutes to see what they think it is - I think he's just scratched the eyelid but I'm filming on Monday so I need to make sure it's going to go away....

Finally found out what is wrong with my car yesterday - took it in for a service and explained the brake problem. It turns out the main cylinder was broken and basically I've been driving with my brakes on for the last year. Which explains the huge amount of fuel I've been getting through (I thought it was just the car) and why it sometimes crawls up hills....there was no way of knowing and nothing I could have done. And it's going to cost £400 to fix it. So that's £200 from a couple of weeks ago plus the 400 = very skint Sally.

It's been an expensive month - I also have to spend £250 on photos and spotlight for my acting stuff.....

And I look like I've gone 3 rounds with Mike Tyson.

Here's hoping April will be cheaper and less painful......

I won't say "I told you so" on the car .. I'm just glad that you've got it sorted out. And hopefully you'll start saving some money on petrol and maintenance costs after it's fixed.

The eye looks pretty bad.. still, will it add to the character of your Basil Brush portrayal? Tell Oscar that unless he stops hurting his mum, he'll be shipped off to America to live with his aunties! :D

Ouch! Clara Jane's a grabber, too. I empathize, although she's never grabbed my eyelid.

Big hugs to you and hoping things get better soon.
