Well, apart from the howling of the winds, that is.
Just really dropping in to say hello and apologise that I have not had time to visit everyone this week.
We have been very busy with our new charges - they escaped again yesterday, but happily came back following a bucket of pig nuts. They are so funny running around and suddenly spring up vertically into the air. Who said pigs couldn't fly? Mind you, with the winds we have had this week, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see them shooting past the window. Still, they have made nice, cosy nests in their wee house, so they have been staying indoors quite a lot too.
And then Robbie is not great. He is 14, or 98 in dog years, is blind and has been struggling a lot with mobility problems for a while. He is in a lot of pain, and can't lie down for very long. We have been putting in a lot of night shifts with him lately, so it is time for a visit to the vet tomorrow. Hopefully he can prescribe some strong painkillers and maybe a sedative for night time. We will see. We certainly can't go on much longer like this.
On a happier note, we are also busy getting ready for our October visitors, as well as becoming involved in various community events. More on that next week - and - the new arrival...has arrived!
No pictures yet, as I haven't had a chance, but soon... oh yes. xxx
