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...

And so the winter begins!

Hey Honeychoppers, how are you all doing? Surviving this horrible onset of rain that we seem to have been enduring for weeks on end I hope! Although that said; today is a gorgeous day where I live, it was cold this morning, a frost on my car, but the...

Happy autumn!

Who turned up the heat?

Who turned up the heat! That’s right, it’s been hot in North East Scotland too! It’s nice to have a normal summer again – where one minute its 20 degrees and the next minute its raining, not compared to last years constant heat and total drought! I much prefer...

Pick yourself up and dust yourself off!

So the good news is that Gerrys back legs are now 100%! Hooray! The swelling has reduced and the vets say it may never be completely gone so I am happy with him just being sound and not in any pain. The vets were booked to come out and...

Are we finally getting somewhere?

Hello Honeychoppers – how are you all doing? I hope you haven’t been suffering in the rainy weather we have had recently – it’s been pretty grim where I live. Last week pretty much rained ALL week but the ground is now much better as a result so we...
