Treacle is home with us but we don’t know for how long. His days are very much numbered – he has a mass on his heart, about the size of a golf ball and it is pressing on his windpipe and making him cough. He has little desire to eat and the fluid on his lungs is making his breathing very laboured. The vet tells us that he is not in pain or otherwise suffering so we didn’t have him put to sleep immediately. We want to say our goodbyes.

I however was very much suffering last night (see link above).

Today is a better day – Mr L managed to remove the broken filter from my lens, where it was stuck pretty tight fast. I have tested my camera and am in the process of testing all of the lenses that fell from the table. The arrival of a lovely stationery package from Bureau Direct provided me with a subject on which to do the lens tests – this Storm Grey special edition ink, from Herbin, with its lovely chunky glass bottle and suspended particles of gold.

The vet can’t estimate how long  Treacle has with us and much depends on whether we can persuade him to eat. I think I may concentrate my photo efforts for the next few days on attempting to get some last shots of him. We shall miss him when he goes, he has been a great companion with considerable character.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
