This week a truly important milestone occurred in the Pigalina household – Mr Pigalina gained his 10,000 fruit chopped achievement in Fruit Ninja, which was the last to be gained.
Dragon fruit are worth extra points. It seems that the supermarket thinks so too, charging $8.19 each. We are yet to taste it.
Yesterday I thought I would treat William to a good grooming. I combed and combed while he purred and walked around the lounge forcing me to follow. Then, after sticky rolling up some loose hairs I saw a flea stuck to the roller too. Urgh!
So off I trotted today to buy flea treatment for both dog and cat. $30 per packet of three – ridiculous. One little flea cost me loads! Especially when you take into account the treats they demand after enduring the ordeal of having some drops put on their necks.
Another day, another $75 blood test for William – the cat who is a vet’s best friend. Kidney, liver and diabetes tests. Turns out he has just been thirsty lately…
Took the dog and cat to the vet for vaccinations. William, our cat, was also diagnosed with an over-active thyroid which causes rapid heartbeat, faster metabolism and weightloss in both body and bank account.
For just $3000 you can own this lovely artwork that looks like it was done by a 10 year old. Maybe it was, who knows? I need to take up painting…
Whisky tasting organised by Mr Pigalina’s work to raise money for Cure Kids. Won some
meat succulent, delicious lamb medallions (courtesy of Silver Fern Farms NZ) in the raffle and fell in love with the $140 15 year old Dalwhinnie. It shall remain an admiration from afar.
Just when I think I can trust my dog alone with the groceries…
This time it wasn’t just sausages!
I must never complain about Dunedin’s parking again! $10 for 1 hour in Auckland.
