Hi all!!! So sorry i have not been around for a while again. Just wanted to give you a quick update. My little munchkin Simone is still recovering from cat flu. I took her back to the vet yesterday and she was given another slow release antibiotic jab. She is still on daily painkillers which she has to stay on for the time being. The scabby nose and lesions in her mouth have settled down although her mouth is still red and sore.
Simone is definitely not back to normal but well on the road to recovery with lots of TLC!!!.


I have still not heard about my operation for the kidney stones but have to ring up on Friday if i have not heard by then. I had to go see my Rheumatologist last week and i will be starting on another drug over the next few weeks. It is called Methotrexate and is a chemo drug which is used to help Rheumatoid. I have got to learn to inject myself with it once a week (yikes!!!). I have been on the drug before in tablet form but it made me really sick but they have now brought it out in injection form which is supposed to carry less side effects.
Like everything you have just got to give it a go, even if it does make you ill. There are no clinical trials for the time being so i just need to try this in the meantime.

I now need to really get back into my cardmaking as i am so aware how quickly the year is going by it is scarey!!!.

Will be back soon to share some cards.

Love & hugs Clare xxx


  1. Clare, so glad your kitty is improving. We have used Methotrexate for years here in the states for RA so I am sure if you go online they can sort of tell you what to expect. Hope it gives you some relief and I have total confidence you can do the injections with no problem. Sorry I don't live closer or would do it for you.

  2. Awww bless your heart Amanda! will let you know how i get on. I am praying the Methotrexate helps xxx

  3. Hi Miss Clare.....Glad Simone is doing much better and as for you well I hope and pray that the new drug will help you xxxxxxx

  4. Glad your kitty is getting better. Fingers crossed that the new drugs work for you hunny. xx

  5. Good to hear Simone is on the mend. Not so sure about the injecting yourself thing - that would scare me to death, but if it makes you feel better, then you have to overcome that and give it a go. Thinking about you. Big hugs, Claire x

  6. So lovely to see you back where you belong!

    Hope Simones final bit of recovery is a good and steady one and as for you sticking a prick in you...............well, what can I say?!
