Polly's 6th Gotcha Day - 15th September, 2018

I can't believe it was six years ago today that I brought Polly home.  Two weeks previous I had suddenly lost my beautiful Song to cancer and my heart was broken.

Whilst Polly settled in quickly, she was so different to Song and it took a while for me to adjust to that.  I could feel my heart mending when I laughed at something she did, or when she put her head on my lap and just looked at me.  I swear she knew how sad I was in those early days.

Now I can't think about the day she won't be here.  She's 12 next March and has Arthritis, Cataracts and suffers from recurring corns, but she still has her moments.  She'll still throw a toy about and even have the odd zoomies.  When at my friend Hilary, she will go silly in her garden and race down her hall.

She may be an old girl now, but she still has the zest for life and enjoys it on her own terms.

Here's my desk this morning.



A few weeks ago someone asked where I kept all my crafting stash.  Some in my desk, but it's mainly in the two large sideboards, small console table and large console table.  Then my wood mounted stamps and punches are in the shoe organiser hanging inside a cupboard in my living room.

Milestone Barn, Gimingham, Norfolk 7th - 14th July, 2018

Last week I went on my first proper holiday (not staying with family or dog sitting for my friend) for about 30 years.

I went with my friend Hilary and all 5 of our dogs (4 Greyhounds and 1 Pointer).  None of the dogs had been on holiday before.

Our cars resembled this:



I noticed an article in the Homer magazine (Greyhound Trust) about dog friendly places to stay.  Oh and they didn't charge for the dogs.  After looking at the properties that East Ruston Cottages had, we settled on Milestone Barn.  It suited all out needs, especially mine being all on one level, having a wet room, toilet frame and shower seat.

Here's their web site:  http://www.eastrustoncottages.co.uk/


Here are some of the 109 photos Hilary and I took.


The Barn
The View



My photo does not do it justice.  We sat at the dining table looking out across the valley.


Relaxed Dogs


4 out of the 5 dogs.

Polly enjoying the sofa.  They supplied the throws so dogs could go on the sofas.

Can't wait for our week in October next year.
