A rough week

May 10th, 2010 by Heidi

Apologies for the radio silence but last week was pretty rough. On top of the stress of moving, two mortgages etc, we had some dog trouble. With all of this, and my routine being ‘messed up’, I reached breaking point and rather stopped functioning for a few days.

Saturday morning saw a new arrival, Devon Blue – and I am not talking about the cheese!

Dog Racing!

February 18th, 2010 by Heidi

This week’s You Capture theme is kisses and I must admit I was thinking I was going to be missing a challenge.

While watching the Olympics …

February 14th, 2010 by Heidi

I thought I should distract myself from the Olympic coverage to post an update. It has been quite a week with kittens, coffee, court, doctors, barrels, ice carving, snow sculptures, an owl, Olympics & Olympic knitting! Some of them will require a post all of their own, which will be coming up in the next week, but for now here is a quick taster.

Work!?!?!?

February 12th, 2010 by Heidi

This week’s You Capture theme was ‘Work’, and to be honest it has had me somewhat stumped. I am not really sure what counts as ‘work’ anymore.

Not a super week!

February 7th, 2010 by Heidi

I have been rather under par this week which has meant not many things being checked off on the task list. I have a hard time giving myself time off, as if I am sitting still then I am generally worrying about what I should be doing, and feeling guilty about it. This week has been a prime example of that – I haven’t given myself a proper day off but also haven’t really managed to achieve anything!

Therapy dog

When I first met Charlie I was told he would make a very good therapy dog, and he does.

Where did it go?

January 31st, 2010 by Heidi

Where did January go? I am really not sure how it is already the last day in January. Now don’t get me wrong, the closer we get to Spring the more excited I get thinking about the lambs and my vegetable garden. But with the speed at which this month passed I am not going to be ready!

A home for Spirit

January 20th, 2010 by Heidi

We have come to the very sad realization that the best option for our dogs is to find a new home for Spirit. This is pretty much the last thing we wanted, we wanted to be able to make everything work and not have to put her through another change. But as the song goes “you can’t always get what you wa-ant”!

Sunday roundup

January 17th, 2010 by Heidi

It struck me that it might be a good idea to have a weekly round up post on a Sunday, some days there are simply too many things to write about, and sometimes the things I want to share don’t need a post all to themselves. These things aren’t less important than the normal posts, in fact some of todays is more important than the ‘regular scheduled programming’, it’s just that during the week I have a task list I work to even if sometimes the world rearranges my plans!

Willow needs you!

January 13th, 2010 by Heidi

You may have noticed that it has been a long time since I have written a post about any foster cats or dogs, it isn’t that we have stopped fostering, we currently have 7 cats and 1 dog for Cat Rescue Network and a cat for Bullies in Need staying here. No I didn’t mis-type we really are fostering a cat for a dog rescue and a dog for a cat rescue!
