awww thank you @Sherry Heart

do you like candles that smell ??

which ones do you like xx

my SIL brought me one that smells like chocolate -- but it made me hugary

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Yes @Shaz51 , I do like scented candles.  But something a bit on the subtle side. I dont like the ones which are so powerful that they seem to assault your senses, rather than tantalise them.  Hope that makes sense.  I'm not sure I'd like the chocolate ones?  The idea is to bring on a relaxed calm feeling, rather than a hyper sugar fix response. 😂 🕯  🛀

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

I'm not sure I'd like the chocolate ones?-- yes not a good one @Sherry :smileyvery-.happy:

I like lavendar , there is a few i like but mr shaz does not like , but that is ok

how is our little holly xx

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Oh @Shaz51 , my little Holly is gorgeous, as ever.  But I'm worried that she has become really deaf lately.  I know they can go deaf as they age, but it seems to have happened quite quickly.  Wondering if I should take her to the vet, just to check her over and ensure there is no ear infection or anything like that.  But then I think ... I'm worrying unnecessarily.  Whats a little deafness after all.  I dont know.  She's still really active and seems well ... just deaf.  She doesnt even hear our doorbell any more.  I'm now using signs and signals to call her, and she looks really closely at my face when I talk to her.  Maybe she can lip read? 😍  But I do worry about her.  Especially when we are going away next week for 9 days, and I will need to leave her with our neighbours.

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

yes it makes it harder when our furbabies are going deaf @Sherry 

but if she seems ok apart from that , just ask your neighbours just to keep an eye on it and see what they think afterwards

I remember our neighbour had 2 of holly  and one was deaf but she always knew i was there to feed her , but i would wait until she ate it all soo the other dog dolly would not eat it xxxx

remember when my tara was going deaf too but she was soo clever and cheeky

Checking in @Shaz51 

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Hello @Darcy 

How are you xx

Busy day today and a new mowing job 

It was funny we turned up to make a quote and it was someone I knew Smiley Very Happy

@Darcy  I think Mr shaz is experiencing short memory loss , I arranged when we should mow  and the lady said not to mow  pass the loco track 

Five seconds later Mr shaz asked if he had to mow beyond the loco track 

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Cognitive deficits = yikes @Shaz51 

Mr Darcy tells me he has trouble concentrating and subsequently listening. Sometimes he seems to have no idea what has been said, at other times he remembers details I don't. 

 

Sometimes I wonder if how much of this relates to how much he is interested in the topic *sighs.
