These past couple of months have been extremely hard. Having to make the decision for Ellie when she was still so bright in herself nearly totally broke me. John is still struggling with balancing his meds to have some sort of life. Breathing is often quite a challenge for him especially first thing in the… Continue reading A Catch-up Round-up.
Today we said goodbye to the most perfect of dogs, Ellie. She had so much pride and dignity she was reliable, a great, trustworthy companion and only ever wanted to be with you and please. Run free my Perfect Princess, go find Ruger and snuggle up. It was an honour to be owned by you… Continue reading Fair Well My Princess
Oh my! Where did October go? Mind you, if I spend a little time looking back through, it was a good month. John and I spent a lot of time pottering around, slower than normal, starting to put the garden to bed for the winter, always quite a long chore anyway. We have some huge… Continue reading On to November!

Thankfully we have good friends and a defibrillator in… Continue reading A Week to Not Repeat

It's certainly been feeling that way with chilly, damp and grey mornings often with mist in the valleys and warmer, sunny afternoons. I don't think I've done the summer/winter wardrobe swap over for several years and months like this are exactly why.… Continue reading Augtember Hmmmm
Bit of a catch up this week! First welcome to you if you have just joined me and come from Sandra's blog Wild Daffodil. Feel free to browse and join in! Question: do you wear an apron? Creative ones I mean, not the cooking type. I have several and have noticed once I put one… Continue reading Half Past August
