I'm off sick with a virus on the lungs. Been coughing for weeks and have a cold to go with it. The whole family's got it and as a result the medicine boxes keep piling up. I find them unsightly, so I try to keep them partly hidden but not so hidden that I forget to take them. This was my solution. A decorative dish that keeps them in order too. (The pattern is 'Saturn', design by Figgjoflint.)

Some of the pills belong to our beloved dog, unfortunately. She is by far the most seriously ill patient in the household, suffering from an expanding heart. It sounds romantic, but it's not. It's a ticking bomb that most likely will be her ending. I fear it might be mine too... Hopefully it will be a couple of years down the line.

I'm sorry to hear you're sick, and that's such sad news about your dog. I hope you get better soon, and wish your dear dog a very very slow expansion of the heart.

Thanks, Heather! I should probably add that Gunn (my dog) is going to be 11 later this year, and she was diagnosed with this heart failure over 5 years ago. So she's been living fine with it for a long time. She's still playful, happy to go for walks and chasing cats, although she takes it a little more easy than before.

Sad news all round, sounds like Gunn is happy to take it a little easier than before. And there is nothing worst than being sick when there are more important things to worry about.
