Calling Mulligans

July 17th, 2010 by Heidi

There was a term I heard from time to time on the golf course that I would like to apply to today – Mulligans – it is when everybody has a bad first shot and you all start again and pretend it didn’t happen!

Boots ~ 25th September 2000 – 5th July 2010

July 6th, 2010 by Heidi

10 years ago a friend at work asked for my help. He was moving in with his girlfriend who had this kitten. He was horribly allergic to the kitten, so the kitten needed a new home. He knew I was a cat lover, and would take good care of him, I couldn’t say no.

New arrivals!

April 21st, 2009 by Heidi

I was working on a post for today about all the planting that has been going on in our solarium, and to show you some pictures of the lovely seedlings that are slowly filling the room.
