First month of fun!

It’s been around 6 weeks since Hector arrived in his new home. He has been a total joy to have around so far and we have been having so much fun. I have still been on furlough from work so have had plenty of time to spend getting to...

Who turned down the temperature?

Is it just me or did the temperature just suddenly drop one day and just never rise again?! Welcome to autumn I guess 🙂 Poor Gerry is still lame. That’s been 17 weeks now since he did his check ligament, and 28 weeks since he went off initially. That’s...

Happy autumn!

Is it just me or does blog time come around quicker every month?! I can’t believe it’s the end of September already. That’s 5 months since Gerry first went off now! It feels like a lifetime. Hopefully he’s going to be in a place soon where we can start...
