Cool Summer's Day.In Amsterdam.
Gareth's Photos From Wales.
Woke up early, at 6 am as the blanket had somehow slipped off me and I was cold, Richie covered me up again and we both slept on for a few hours.
The sun was shining abit when we opened the curtain at 10 am but as I looked the cloud cover came back and within half an hour there was no sun.
It became noticeably cooler as soon as the sun went away so no return of the brief summer weather.
Beginning to think that this year will not be a good a summer as last year, not surprising really as last year was the best summer here in many years.
Shame for me especially as it would be so much nicer to go out in balmy warm weather, oh well never mind just have to warm up warm.
Richie has taken Spike off to the Emergency Animal Clinic as he did not respond as well as we expected to the flea treatment on Monday.
Sadly it was a typically late on Friday that we first noticed his scratching was getting really over the top.
Yesterday late afternoon he was starting to hurt himself quite abit so Richie put the plastic bucket round his head to stop him from biting himself.
Well they are back now, seems Spike has mange, which is a class of persistent contagious
Skin diseases caused by parasitic mites.
Poor old Spike has really not been having a good year this year with the knee operation and his teeth and now mange too.
He now has a treatment for the next three months which will get rid of the parasite.
Marleen will have to go and see the vet this week as she will need to be treated too as we are sure she will have got it from Spike by now.
Going to watch more football now Ghana v Serbia and later on it is Germany v Australia.
Earlier today we watched Slovenia win against Algeria, almost forgot we saw two games Friday fsirst was South Africa v Morocco and then France v Uroguay.
Am enjoying the game seems to be a good game with both teams playing well, unlike England yesterday.
They had a good first goal sadly for them they celebrated like they had already won the tournament.
Glad USA got a goal yesterday, even though it was mainly thanks to the England goal keeper’s blunder.
Lots more games to come.
