>Persistance pays off

>Going back to this post I searched high & low for the Noro book. When I had exhausted all the standard online shops I starting calling smaller bricks & mortars shops & eventually struck gold: Debbie Bliss Noro Collection #1 I remembered that a little shop in Buxton that I’ve visited a few times whilst […]


>Thank you

>Thanks to everybody who left a comment or sent me an email regarding Blue. I’ve cried at every single one of them & am still very upset by her loss. Over the past year or so we’ve said farewell to too many animals or so it seems. However Tia, Monet & even little Vince had […]


>It gets worse

>Blue is very ill. She had an endoscopy yesterday after x-rays revealed nothing. She’s either got a large stomach ulcer that is threatening to burst or an ulcerated tumor. The vet managed to get some samples of her stomach & they’ve been sent off for urgent testing. She has been kept in as she is […]

>Havin’ a Whale of a Time…..

>Temporary reprieve?

>At the moment our home is peaceful after our awful Christmas but I don’t know if DD can keep it up. The incentive seems to be that she wants to carry on swimming & playing football. I’ve made it very clear to her that ALL sport will stop if she continued with her awful behaviour […]
