Not for the squeamish.

Other bloggers have parcels through the post containing wonderful colourful treasures.
Here's what I received on Saturday.

This note and two very large disposable nappies from my friend who works in a school for children with severe learning difficulties.

Don't worry they're not for me...but for this old girl.
I have been at my wits end with a bedwetting dog.

I tried a 'Pampers' with a strategically placed hole for her tail but she wagged it off.
The larger version in the parcel was a great success..one wet nappy, one dry bed, one very confused dog.
Are you horrified?
Yesterday we took her to the vets and discovered she has severe osteo arthritis in her spine which is causing the other problem so she was prescribed painkillers.
We paid extra for the palatable variety.
Unfortunately she doesn't find them so.
I got one out of the bottle and put it on the table, went to fetch Willow and when I got back the cat had eaten it.
It was the size of a Scrabble tile.
I won't describe the consequences.

Now for something nice.
Quite some time ago I visited one of my favourite blogs and found I had won a giveaway.
I didn't take a very good picture of it so click that link to see it.
That was a lovely surprise and I wanted to say a public thank you to Caroline Inckle who's artwork I really enjoy, especially her embroideries.
They have a magical and enchanting quality and reflect the mysterious northern land she lives in.
They give me the same kind of feeling I had when I first read 'Moominland Midwinter'.
Just have a look through these posts.
Thank you for all the really lovely comments you have been leaving.
I've sold one of my silver cuffs three times over.
Embroidery next post.
