gardener with broken toe


By donnah


I have just broken my Toe which has not helped towards trying to do the garden

But I have been pricking out plants all day in the green house and I think I should have a really good show off colour this year This is my little helper( Daisy)

Not great photos of the Toe. Its a long story if you have the time,I have a cat called Olley and a couple of days ago I was at work when my neighbour rang me to say that her husband was driving passed my house and the cat ran out and that he a run over it

This is my Olley. Well I came home from work By the time I arrived home I was in a right state.I turned the place upside down looking for him. And I found him in next doors woodshed. He was laying down and doing a lot of crying so I picked him up and tryed to take him home, But he was in pain and I could not hold him. So I spent all day looking for him with the help of neighbours After about 8 hours looking I was so upset as I thought to myself he had gone away to die. Anyway after a lot of tears at (9.30) he came home So I rang the vet and he said to be there in 15 minets , And I was with my Olley. He checked him over and said this will cost you ( £60) before he even looked at him. But in times like this money means nothing. Well My Olley is a very lucky Cat he has at the age of 11 got away with it One of his lifes has gone Olley is Ok now My Nerves and Bank balance are not. Well back to the Toe, I came downstairs without my slippers during the night to see how Olley was and I caught my little toe on the unit in the kitchen and then snap one broken Toe. Small price to pay when you love some thing as much as I love Olley xxx

Olley is one lucky cat, I hope he recovers fully and that you are not in too much pain yourself..They don`t realise what traumatic effects their sojourns cause to us both mentally and financially. At least Daisy seems happy enough under your watchful eye.....
