Its A Beautiful Day - for washing a toad ????

Its a gorgeous day here although the week has been not so gorgeous. Miss T has had tonsillitis and though she doesn't get it often - when she does its a nasty bout.

She didn't move from the sofa for two days - which is a miracle as she is normally such a busy little bee - it was horrible to see her so poorly.

She was so sick and had a nosebleed at the same time - which made for an interesting dilemma when it came to the big clean up - I didn't know which to tackle first.

Yesterday she was much brighter but still not physically active so it was great to see her venture out in the garden today.

She went to see the rabbits as she had missed them and wanted to give them a love.

After about 15 minutes I was surprised that she hadnt come back in and went to see if she was ok.

We turned the old coal house into a utility room and as I went out the back door I could see that the light was on in there - so I popped my head round the door.

Are you ok??

Yes mom.

What are you doing?

Washing a toad.

Ok - whaaattt? did you say washing a toad?

Yes it was dirty.......

I guess she is feeling much better......

Great stuff! Hope the toad enjoyed being washed! Glad your daughter is better now ;-)

How adorable! She looks like a lovely little thing, glad to hear she's better. They can drive you mad when they're too lively but then it's worse when they aren't!

LOL! that's funny! The toad doesn't look as if he minds either! Has she given him or her a name? Glad she is better! xx

Wow, I'm glad to hear she's better. My mum always used to say: 'I can tell you're getting better, because you're being horrible!'. Washing a toad is a much better sign, I think.

Oh bless her, My little man had tonsilitus and he was not good at all!

The toad looks like he's found a friend too!

When I was little I came in doors cradling a dead rat and was stroking it! when mum noticed she screamed and after getting a neigbour to take the offending animal off me stripped me and scrubbed me from top to toe! I think I was about 5!

Glad to hear she's perked up and is doing a good job of toad washing :)

Glad she is feeling better. Tonsilitis is so horrible, my brother used to be very poorly with it till he had them out. Love the toad story - I've always loved frogs and toads.

Glad shes feeling better. Bless her for washing the toad!

Ha! Reminds me of my daughter who used to keep snails as pets, and insisted on giving them a bath! She also once had an earwig, a woodlouse and other sundry beasties.

Hope your little one is right as rain again very soon.
