Been a bit busy

I haven't blogged recently since the weekend saw Isla and I living it up in London.  Meanwhile all is good here...
schmoozing with the stars!

Spectacular skyline


April looking a bit tubby - wonder why??!!!

Milk bar nozzles - primed and waiting

Foxglove is doing well

Happy days

I am feeling very happy at the moment.  The sun helps I guess but there are other factors - hopefully more on that another time.

Today has seen the addition of another female to our herd.  Nearly black, I am thinking dark brown in colour.  She was born two weeks early but very strong.  We will have to think of a name for her now.

Erica looking lovely

Isla with Freesia

Does anything faze Maggie?

Maggie went for her first trip to the beach today with Chris and I.  Typically she took it all in her stride.

The kittens are proving increasingly more difficult to photograph since they are usually racing around, here they are in a rare moment of stillness.

There were 5 in the bed and the little one said...

Berry and Bajou

The dogs seem to be enjoying the brighter weather.

Steady hunting

but still wanting to have fun



Herby, during a calm moment

Maggie is very loyal

Long overdue update

We managed to finally get away for a week, partly thanks to Tara who came to look after the animals.  She did a great job and all the animals are doing well.
