Today is my day for healing the wounded.
Now I'm not claiming to have the power to perform miracles... but there are a few friends living at our place, who are in need of some tender loving care. And I think I can help them out.
My plan is to deal with them today, so that I can clear them out of my 'craft zone' and move ahead with my plans for Christmas.
First up is this sorry looking snake. He's been part of our family for about eight years now, and the kids are very attached to him... so it would be such a shame to throw him away if he can be fixed. Alas, their favourite game to play with him seems to be 'tug of war'... not only has he lost his tongue as a result... but has developed a gaping wound in his mouth in the process. He also appears to have had some oral hygiene issues, leading to a mouth full of fur balls... so we'll work on that too!
Big Ted has a severe neck wound... and is losing his innards at an incredible rate...
And although Rosebud doesn't appear to be severely impaired, the stitching has been broken at her mouth. Apparently she is not to be in the company of the other beanie kids until her 'lipstick is pretty again'
