We do have a new four legged addition here - not an Alpaca, although called Nessie it is not a monster.
Thank you to Tabitha and Lucy we have the loan of a lovely pony for grand daughters Holly & Jessica.
Nessie met with Holly's approval immediately.
I have overcome the biggest hurdle I think I have ever had to encounter. My mother has Alzheimers and lived alone about twelve miles away so this year has been very stressful as her condition worsened. I suppose the best thing to be said about it is that on the whole she is very happy and has no idea she has the wrong day or time.
Anyway, she is now in care and her flat emptied and everything sorted. A big decision but I know that she is safe and in company. A few days away in Cornwall followed to celebrate a big birthday (suffice to say that at one time I would have been able to claim my Pension!) so we are now getting ready to face the awful winter they say we are going to get.
So much has been happening on various blogs - I have missed out a lot so it is taking me ages to catch up but I am thoroughly enjoying it.
